Endoscopic Shelf Procedure and Ischiofemoral Decompression with Arthroscopic Acetabular Labral Reconstruction: A Case Report


Case: A 43-year-old female patient complained of pain in the right hip. The diagnoses of hip dysplasia, ischiofemoral impingement (IFI), femoroacetabular (FAI) cam-type morphology, and labral tear were made. The patient underwent hip arthroscopy with labral reconstruction for an irreparable labral tear and cam-morphology correction, and hip endoscopy for shelf procedure and ischiofemoral decompression. Favorable outcomes were reported at 1-year follow-up.

Conclusion: Hip arthroscopy for FAI cam-type morphology with labral reconstruction and concomitant hip endoscopy for shelf and ischiofemoral decompression seem to be safe for the treatment of active young adult patients with FAI cam-type morphology, irreparable labral tear, dysplasia, and IFI diagnoses. Nevertheless, the results presented should not be extrapolated as this is a case report.
