New Statement Released: Hip Arthroscopy for Labral Repair
We have released a new statement regarding hip arthroscopy for labral repairs:
It is critical that a careful history, physical exam, and x-rays be performed by a surgeon with experience in recognizing hip dysplasia in order to determine the approaches that are reasonable on a case by case basis. Also these subtle / borderline cases will require further study to determine the optimal surgical approaches and treatments because hip arthroscopy in mild cases of dysplasia is unpredictable.
There very little information in the scientific literature regarding benefits or risks of hip arthroscopy in the setting of hip dysplasia.
