PurposeThe acetabular labrum is theorized to be important to normal hip function by providing stability to distraction forces through the suction effect of the hip fluid seal. The purpose of this study was to determine the relative contributions of the hip capsule and labrum to the distractive stability of the hip, and to characterize hip stability to distraction forces in six labral conditions: intact labrum, labral tear, labral repair (looped vs. through sutures), partial resection, labral… 

The Hip Suction Seal, Part I: The Role of Acetabular Labral Height on Hip Distractive Stability

TLDR
Smaller height of the acetabular labrum was significantly associated with decreased distance to suction seal rupture and decreased peak negative pressure, and a new strategy to increase the size of the labrum, such as labral augmentation, could be justified for patients with smaller labra in order to optimize the hip suction Seal.

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

TLDR
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.

Effects of Capsular Reconstruction With an Iliotibial Band Allograft on Distractive Stability of the Hip Joint: A Biomechanical Study

TLDR
Capsular reconstruction with an ITB allograft significantly increased the force required to distract the hip compared with a capsular defect in a cadaveric model and should be considered an effective treatment option for patients with symptomatic capsular deficiency.

Vertical Extension of the T-Capsulotomy Incision in Hip Arthroscopic Surgery Does Not Affect the Force Required for Hip Distraction: Effect of Capsulotomy Size, Type, and Subsequent Repair

TLDR
The conversion of interportal capsulotomy to T-capsulotomy did not significantly affect the force required to distract the hip in a cadaveric model and complete capsular repair demonstrated the ability to restore joint stability to the native, intact hip.

TLDR
Acetabular labral suture anchor repairs may be able to immediately withstand the physiological loads of axial weight-bearing immediately after repair, preserving the strength and integrity of muscles and soft tissues.

Biomechanical evaluation contribution of the acetabular labrum to hip stability

TLDR
The acetabular labrum provides stability to the hip joint in response to a distraction force and combined distraction and translation forces and could be crucial for restoration of the hip biomechanics and prevention of coxarthrosis.

Evaluation of the sealing function of the acetabular labrum: an in vitro biomechanical study

TLDR
It is suggested that labral repair is important in the function of the hip and that the vertical mattress suture technique may be better than the cerclage suture repair.

Design of Hip Simulation Machine for Hip Labrum Testing

TLDR
The purpose of this study was to study pressurization in three labral conditions including intact labrum, labral repair and labral reconstruction and helped the surgeon to make a decision in surgery process.

Effect of Acetabular Labrum Tears on Hip Stability and Labral Strain in a Joint Compression Model

TLDR
The findings suggest that the acetabular labrum continues to function to resist femoral head translation despite chondral-labral separation and that labral preservation, particularly with larger tears, may be important for maintaining hip stability.

THE 2007 FRANK STINCHFIELD AWARD: The Biomechanics of the Hip Labrum and the Stability of the Hip

TLDR
A breach of the integrity of labral function is shown to lead to decreased femoral stability relative to the acetabulum during extreme ranges of motion.

Results of Arthroscopic Labral Reconstruction of the Hip in Elite Athletes

TLDR
Arthroscopic labral reconstruction using an ipsilateral iliotibial band autograft provides good short-term clinical outcomes, high patient satisfaction, and a satisfactory level of return to play in a select group of elite athletes.

TLDR
High traction forces by breakage of the joint seal can be avoided by distension using air, and reducing the amount of traction may possibly reduce the risk of soft tissue perineal and neurologic injuries.

The proximal hip joint capsule and the zona orbicularis contribute to hip joint stability in distraction

TLDR
The proximal to middle part of the capsule, which includes the zona orbicularis, appears grossly and biomechanically to act as a locking ring wrapping around the neck of the femur and is a key structure for hip stability in distraction.

Acetabular Labral Reconstruction With an Iliotibial Band Autograft

TLDR
The midterm results of this technique with a follow-up from 3 to 6 years after reconstruction showed excellent patient-reported outcomes and high patient satisfaction with outcome, and joint space of ≤2 mm was found to be a poor prognostic factor for survival of the hip.

Intracapsular and atmospheric pressure in the dynamics and stability of the hip. A biomechanical study.

TLDR
It is proposed that intracapsular fluid makes the joint potentially unstable, a prerequisite for unfavorable mechanical cartilage load, and have clinical implications in synovitis, septic and juvenile arthritis, congenital dislocation of the hip, arthroplasty, and trauma.
