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)
The purpose of this study was to identify subjective complaints and objective findings in patients treated for femoroacetabular impingement (FAI). Three hundred and one arthroscopic hip surgeries were performed to treat FAI. The most frequent presenting complaint was pain, with 85% of patients reporting moderate or marked pain. The most common location of(More)
Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) occurs when an osseous abnormality of the proximal femur (cam) or acetabulum (pincer) triggers damage to the acetabular labrum and articular cartilage in the hip. Although the precise etiology of FAI is not well understood, both types of FAI are common in athletes presenting with hip pain, loss of range-of-motion, and(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)
Hip pain can be caused by multiple pathologies. Injuries to the acetabular labrum are the most common pathologic findings identified at the time of hip arthroscopy. Five causes of labral tears have been identified; these include trauma, femoroacetabular impingement, capsular laxity, dysplasia, and degeneration. Studies have shown the function and the(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to investigate percent fill and repair grade of microfractured lesions of the acetabulum. METHODS Nine patients underwent revision hip arthroscopy for a variety of procedures after undergoing microfracture for treatment of a full-thickness chondral defect of the acetabulum at primary arthroscopy. The size of the(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between the size of cam lesions and the presence of cartilage damage, labral damage, or changes in range of motion in the hips with signs and symptoms of femoroacetabular impingement (FAI). METHODS Cross-table lateral radiographs were available for 102 consecutive patients presenting with(More)
Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) has been recently recognized as a cause of hip pain, labral and chondral pathology, early osteoarthritis, and decreased athletic performance. Historically, treatment for FAI consisted of an open approach with surgical dislocation. It has been suggested that the operative trauma sustained during the open procedure may make(More)
Although hip arthroscopic techniques have been developed and evolved over the last 5 to 10 years to help active athletes, the mechanisms of athletic hip injuries across various sports are not well understood. The purpose of this article is to review the literature related to the osseous and ligamentous support as well as the neuromuscular control strategies(More)
BACKGROUND Existing guidelines recommend emergency surgical debridement of open fractures within six hours after injury. The aim of this study was to systematically review the association between time to operative debridement of open fractures and infection. METHODS Searches of the MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Cochrane computerized literature databases and manual(More)
