Concomitant Arthroscopy With Labral Reconstruction and Periacetabular Osteotomy for Hip Dysplasia. Arthrosc Tech


In the setting of true hip dysplasia, the high prevalence of intra-articular pathology may lead to recurrent symptoms and failure after periacetabular osteotomy (PAO). Femoral neck osteochondroplasty, microfracture, removal of loose bodies, and labral repair are examples of procedures that are performed with concomitant arthroscopy. When damage to the labrum is too severe to repair, reconstruction instead of extensive debridement before PAO can be more effective in restoring the labral seal to maintain joint lubrication and chondral protection. This Technical Note describes a method for concomitant hip arthroscopy with circumferential labral reconstruction with allograft and PAO.
