Circumferential and Segmental Labral Reconstruction: A Systematic Review


The purposes of this study were to synthesize, report, and compare patient-reported outcomes (PROs) between arthroscopic segmental and circumferential labral reconstruction. A systematic review was performed in February 2019 using the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-analyses (PRISMA) method. Inclusion criteria were levels I to IV evidence, articles in English, arthroscopic labral reconstruction, and PROs data. Exclusion criteria were labral treatment without reconstruction, open surgery, and less than 6-month follow-up. Eleven studies were identified. Nine studies (212 hips) reported outcomes of segmental reconstruction. Two studies (194 hips) reported outcomes of circumferential reconstruction. Significant improvement in PROs at short-term with either segmental or circumferential reconstruction was found. [Orthopedics. 2021;44(6):361-366.].
