One in particular is when to resect a pincer lesion and how much to resect. Instability can result from overresection and persistent impingement can result from underresection. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES We therefore determined the correlation between the change in center-edge (CE) angle and the amount of acetabular… CONTINUE READING
