Arthroscopic rim trimming for femoroacetabular impingement can be technically challenging to perform with precision. Intraoperative assessment of the extent of acetabular rim resection is very important. Over-resection can lead to hip instability and even iatrogenic dislocation. Under-resection may leave residual impingement. A novel imaging technique is presented that is simple, practical, and readily available. The technique involves matching the fluoroscopic C-arm image intensifier to the… CONTINUE READING
