There is a known association between femoroacetabular impingement and osteoarthritis of the hip. What is not known is whether arthroscopic excision of an impingement lesion can significantly improve a patient's symptoms. This study compares the results of hip arthroscopy for cam-type femoracetabular impingement in two groups of patients at one year. The study group comprised 24 patients (24 hips) with cam-type femoroacetabular impingement who underwent arthroscopic debridement with excision of… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Combined hip arthroscopy and limited open osteochondroplasty for anterior femoroacetabular impingement.

Early results indicate that combined hip arthroscopy and limited open osteochondroplasty of the femoral head-neck junction is a safe and effective treatment for femoroacetabular impingement.

Arthroscopic treatment for symptomatic bilateral cam-type femoroacetabular impingement.

It is suggested that symptomatic patients with cam-type femoroacetabular impingement have similar accompanied pathologies on both sides and can benefit from sequential arthroscopic osteochondroplasty.

Evaluation of the alpha angle as a predictor of outcome in the arthroscopic management of hip labral disease

The results indicate that the preoperative AA may not be a univariate major predictor of outcome after arthroscopic labral debridement without femoral osteoplasty.

Evaluation of Results of Hip Arthroscopic Surgery for Femoroacetabular Impingement

There was a significant statistical improvement by arthroscopic treatment of FAI and further studies are needed to determine failure rates and risk factors.

Hip Arthroscopy for Femoroacetabular Impingement: Results of 118 Consecutive Cases in a District General Hospital

The faster improvement and the shorter hospital stay and lower morbidity make arthroscopic surgery for FAI a favourable option, and a feasible treatment modality in the non-specialist setting, as well as with the published results from other larger centres.

Clinical outcome scores for arthroscopic femoral osteochondroplasty in femoroacetabular impingement: a quantitative systematic review

Arthroscopic femoral osteochondroplasty appears to be a beneficial treatment for primary femoroacetabular impingement, with a large effect size seen across six eligible studies.

Combined Arthroscopic and Mini-Open Treatment of CAM-Type Femoroacetabular Impingement

Surgical treatment of CAM type femoroacetabular impingement using a combined arthroscopic and mini-open anterior hip approach has a low complication rate and improves functional and pain scores at short-term follow-up.



Influence of Femoroacetabular Impingement on Results of Hip Arthroscopy in Patients with Early Osteoarthritis

It is found that arthroscopic treatment of osteoarthritis of the hip fails if there is detectable femoroacetabular impingement, and in patients with femoro acetabulum and proximal femur the results were considered inadequate.

Anterior Femoro-Acetabular Impingement Due to Acetabular Retroversion: Treatment with Periacetabular Osteotomy

Periacetabular osteotomy is an effective way to reorient the acetabulum in young adults with symptomatic anterior femoro-acetabular impingement due to acetabular retroversion.

Anterior Femoroacetabular Impingement: Part II. Midterm Results of Surgical Treatment

Surgical dislocation with correction of femoroacetabular impingement yields good results in patients with early degenerative changes not exceeding Grade 1 osteoarthrosis, but this procedure is not suitable for patients with advanced degenerativeChanges and extensive articular cartilage damage.

The arthroscopic management of femoroacetabular impingement

The purpose of this article is to provide the reader with an up-to-date knowledge of the clinical and diagnostic aspects of FAI, to describe the arthroscopic technique in detail with its pitfalls and possible complications and to discuss the results and future ofFAI.

Arthroscopic treatment of femoroacetabular impingement secondary to paediatric hip disorders.

It is suggested that femoroacetabular impingement associated with paediatric hip disease can be treated safely by arthroscopic techniques.

Femoroacetabular impingement in 45 professional athletes: associated pathologies and return to sport following arthroscopic decompression

If an arthroscopic approach to treating femoroacetabular impingement can allow professional athletes to return to high-level sport, and if an open surgical approach to decompressing FAI inherently may delay or preclude a high level athlete’s return to play, is determined.

The hip joint: arthroscopic procedures and postoperative rehabilitation.

As arthroscopic procedures to address acetabular labral tears and associated pathology evolve, physical therapists have the opportunity to play a significant role through the development of corresponding rehabilitation protocols.

Hip morphology influences the pattern of damage to the acetabular cartilage: femoroacetabular impingement as a cause of early osteoarthritis of the hip.

It is hypothesized that both cam and pincer impingement lead to osteoarthritis of the hip and that both mechanisms result in different patterns of articular damage.

Radiological evidence of femoroacetabular impingement in mild slipped capital femoral epiphysis: a mean follow-up of 14.4 years after pinning in situ.

Clinical data favours conventional treatment and radiological findings are in support of restoring the anatomy of the proximal femur to avoid or delay the development of femoroacetabular impingement following mild slipped capital femoral epiphysis.
