Background: In patients with femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), acetabular rim trimming removes the offending area of the acetabular deformity in patients with pincer-type and mixed-type FAI to improve hip joint kinematics. Although the rationale for arthroscopic acetabular rim trimming in patients with FAI is well established, the amount of rim resection has not been quantified, and the threshold at which excessive rim resection results in abnormal hip contact pressures has not been described… 

Is Increased Acetabular Cartilage or Fossa Size Associated With Pincer Femoroacetabular Impingement?

The linear length dimensions of the lunate cartilage and cotyloid fossa in normal, dysplastic, and deep acetabula were established to establish two subtypes of deep acetABula and identify two sub types of acetabular articular cartilage.

The Hip Suction Seal, Part II: The Effect of Rim Trimming, Chondrolabral Junction Separation, and Labral Repair/Refixation on Hip Distractive Stability

The labral refixation reduced labral mobility, which could be beneficial for both pain relief and labral healing to the acetabulum after pincer-type femoroacetabular impingement resection.

Periacetabular Osteotomy Provides Higher Survivorship Than Rim Trimming for Acetabular Retroversion

A retrospective, comparative study evaluating the midterm survivorship of two matched patient groups with symptomatic acetabular retroversion undergoing either anteverting periacetabular osteotomy or acetABular rim trimming through a surgical hip dislocation found increased survivorship at 10 years in hips undergoing anteverting PAO.

Importance of Retaining Sufficient Acetabular Depth: Successful 2-Year Outcomes of Hip Arthroscopy for Patients With Pincer Morphology as Compared With Matched Controls

Arthroscopic management of acetabular overcoverage can achieve excellent results, equivalent to arthroscopy for other causes of symptomatic femoroacetabular impingement, and a key finding was smaller rim resections producing a mean postoperative LCEA of 34.2° with a small standard deviation.

What I have learned in over a decade about acetabuloplasty and pincer impingement

This type of impingement can occur as a result of several distinct structural abnormalities and significant controversy surrounding the diagnosis and treatment of this disorder and its associated conditions.

No Correlation Between Depth of Acetabuloplasty or Postoperative Lateral Center-Edge Angle on Midterm Outcomes of Hip Arthroscopy With Acetabuloplasty and Labral Repair: Letter to the Editor

In this study, there were no data on any hip joint space measurement or the Tönnis grade of the radiographic arthritis of the hips in all the patients over the follow-up duration, and it would have added more value to the study had the authors included radiographic osteoarthritis (OA) as one of the outcome measures.



Acetabular rim reduction for the treatment of femoroacetabular impingement correlates with preoperative and postoperative center-edge angle.

Can the Change in Center-edge Angle During Pincer Trimming Be Reliably Predicted?

The ability to accurately plan the amount of acetabular rim resection in hip arthroscopy by knowing the exact change in CE angle with amount of rim removal may help prevent overresection or underresection in pincer trimming.

Biomechanical consequences of anterior column fracture of the acetabulum.

It is suggested that anatomic reduction of anterior column fracture affords the best opportunity to restore contact pressures, contact area, and load distribution within the hip to levels similar to those seen in the intact acetabular region.

Interventions for Hip Pain in the Maturing Athlete

Improvements in hip arthroscopy have led to outcomes equivalent to open surgery while utilizing significantly less invasive techniques, however, outcomes may ultimately depend on the degree of underlying OA.

Biomechanical Consequences of Secondary Congruence After Both-column Acetabular Fracture

In the authors' both-column model of secondary congruence, the stress concentration during simulated single-leg stance was increased significantly in the dome of the acetabulum adjacent to the fracture line.

Femoroacetabular Impingement: Defining the Condition and its Role in the Pathophysiology of Osteoarthritis

It is clear that FAI and its morphologic risk factors are common in young adult hips and predispose to the later development of OA in certain patients, anditudinal studies support the assertion that, in middle‐aged adults, the presence of cam deformities at baseline substantially increases the risk of developing OA and the need for total hip arthroplasty.

Three-dimensional mechanical evaluation of joint contact pressure in 12 periacetabular osteotomy patients with 10-year follow-up

3D contact pressure analysis is consistent with traditional PAO planning techniques (more so than 2D analysis) and may be a valuable addition to preoperative planning and intraoperative assessment of joint realignment.

Labral Reconstruction With Iliotibial Band Autografts and Semitendinosus Allografts Improves Hip Joint Contact Area and Contact Pressure

Segmental anterosuperior labral resection results in significantly decreased contact areas and increased contact pressures, while labral reconstruction partially restores time-zero acetabular contact Areas and pressures as compared with the resected state.

Outcomes following hip arthroscopy for femoroacetabular impingement with associated chondrolabral dysfunction: minimum two-year follow-up.

Hip arthroscopy for femoroacetabular impingement, accompanied by suitable rehabilitation, gives a good short-term outcome and high patient satisfaction and the predictors of a better outcome were the pre-operative modified HHS, joint space narrowing >or= 2 mm, and repair of labral pathology instead of debridement.
