Femoroacetabular impingement is defined as anterior hip abutment between the acetabular rim and proximal femur. When it is secondary to acetabular overcoverage, it is pincer impingement. When it is secondary to femoral head and neck deformity, it is cam impingement. Open remodeling of impinging deformities is the standard treatment of this condition. We(More)
Open reduction of the prominence at the femoral head-neck junction in femoroacetabular impingement has become an established treatment for this condition. We report our experience of arthroscopically-assisted treatment of femoroacetabular impingement secondary to paediatric hip disease in 14 hips in 13 consecutive patients (seven women, six men) with a mean(More)
PURPOSE The external snapping hip syndrome is caused by slippage of the iliotibial band over the greater trochanter. Most cases are treated conservatively but if this fails, open surgical treatment is commonly performed by Z-plasty or by creating a defect on the iliotibial band. We present a series of 11 hips that were surgically treated by an endoscopic(More)
PURPOSE Our purpose was to develop an alternative method to divide the acetabulum and femoral head into different zones based on anatomic landmarks clearly visible during arthroscopy to facilitate reporting the geographic location of intra-articular injuries. METHODS Two vertical lines are positioned across the acetabulum aligned with the anterior and(More)
PURPOSE The internal snapping hip syndrome is caused by slippage of the iliopsoas tendon over the iliopectineal eminence or the femoral head. Open surgical techniques have been successfully used to treat this condition. More recently, endoscopic techniques have become available to address this problem. The purpose of this study was to investigate an(More)
BACKGROUND Traumatic posterior dislocation of the hip joint usually results from high-energy trauma, which can cause additional injuries that may need to be addressed after reduction. PURPOSE This study was undertaken to present arthroscopic findings after traumatic posterior hip dislocation in patients with mechanical hip symptoms. STUDY DESIGN Case(More)
Recent developments in hip arthroscopy techniques and technology have made it possible in many cases to avoid open surgical technique for treating pincer-type and cam-type femoroacetabular impingement and rather treating it arthroscopically. Early reports suggest favorable results using arthroscopic techniques. The frequency of complications reported for(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to examine the arthroscopic findings in the hips of patients with long-term follow-up of Chiari osteotomies. TYPE OF STUDY Prospective consecutive series of patients. METHODS Seven consecutive patients (1 male, 6 female; average age, 23 years) having a Chiari osteotomy performed in 1 hip during childhood or(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the short-term results of 2 different techniques of endoscopic iliopsoas tendon release for the treatment of internal snapping hip syndrome. METHODS Between January 2005 and January 2007, a consecutive series of patients with the diagnosis of internal snapping hip syndrome was treated with endoscopic release of the iliopsoas tendon.(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the results of 2 different techniques of endoscopic iliopsoas tendon release in the treatment of internal snapping hip syndrome. METHODS Between January 2008 and January 2012, a consecutive series of patients with the diagnosis of internal snapping hip syndrome were treated with endoscopic release of the iliopsoas tendon. The patients(More)
