BACKGROUND Tears of the acetabular labrum are frequently present in patients with groin pain. While it is clear that the labrum contributes to the surface area articulating with the femoral head, it is not clear whether labral repair yields different load distribution in the hip compared to labral resection. PURPOSE Determine whether labral repair reduces cartilage strain more effectively than labral resection. METHODS Six human cadaveric hips (mean age 37 years) were loaded in a simulated… CONTINUE READING
