BACKGROUND Hip arthroscopy has become increasingly popular; however, little is known about revision hip arthroscopy. HYPOTHESIS Revision hip arthroscopy is associated with unaddressed femoroacetabular impingement. The purpose of this study was to describe reasons for revision hip arthroscopy. STUDY DESIGN Case series; Level of evidence, 4. METHODS(More)
To assess MRI measures to quantify pelvic morphology that may predispose to ischiofemoral impingement (IFI). We hypothesized that patients with IFI have a wider interischial distance and an increased femoral neck angle compared with normal controls. The study was IRB-approved and complied with HIPAA guidelines. IFI was diagnosed based on clinical findings(More)
Morphological and spatial abnormalities of the proximal femur and acetabulum have been recently recognized as causes of femoroacetabular impingement. During joint motion in hips with femoroacetabular impingement, abnormal bony contact occurs, and soft tissue structures (chondral and labral) often fail. Femoroacetabular impingement has been reported to be a(More)
UNLABELLED Acetabular dysplasia is a precursor to osteoarthritis of the hip, and it causes acute and degenerative injuries of soft tissue stabilizers. Traditional radiographic assessments of dysplasia are useful in moderate and severe dysplasia, but they have questionable reliability in mild dysplasia. Computed tomography (CT) reconstruction provides a(More)
Ischiofemoral space impingement has become an increasingly recognized extracapsular cause of atypical hip, deep gluteal, and groin pain that can be treated endoscopically. We present a minimally invasive posterolateral technique that preserves the attachment of the iliopsoas tendon and quadratus femoris insertion while decompressing the ischiofemoral space(More)
Femoroacetabular impingement has recently become a recognized cause of disability and hip arthritis. Hip arthroscopy and femoroacetabular reshaping have been performed to treat this condition. Quantification of the excess femoral and acetabular bone requiring resection has been challenging with the less invasive arthroscopic technique. We describe the use(More)
Arthroscopic hip labral repair has beneficial short-term outcomes; however, debate exists regarding ideal surgical labral repair technique. This technical note presents an arthroscopic repair technique that uses intrasubstance labral suture passage to restore the chondrolabral interface. This "Iberian suture technique" allows for an anatomic repair while(More)
Hip arthroscopy has gained popularity in recent years for diagnostic and therapeutic hip preservation management. This article details the establishment of arthroscopic portals of the hip, specifically the anterolateral and modified anterior portals without fluoroscopic guidance. The anterolateral portal is established anatomically, and the modified(More)
Understanding of the etiology and pathology of hip instability has increased in recent years as new information has emerged regarding the disease processes of the hip. Hip instability, heretofore considered uncommon in clinical practice, is increasingly recognized as a pathologic entity. Instability may be classified as traumatic or atraumatic, and(More)
Impingement caused by screws used for stabilization of slipped capital femoral epiphysis can be treated arthroscopically. Although troublesome screws have traditionally been removed by open techniques, arthroscopic removal can successfully be achieved. In addition to affording the patient the benefits of minimally invasive surgery, surgeons also have the(More)
