Treatment of co-afflicted athletes with femoroacetabular impingement and osteitis pubis or core muscle injury has been a challenging dilemma. Recent developments in peripubic endoscopic surgery may provide a long-awaited solution.
The periacetabular osteotomy (PAO) has proven to be an effective strategy for correcting adult hip dysplasia. However, there are still unanswered questions with regard to its use for “borderline” acetabular dysplasia, a term used to describe a lateral center-edge angle (LCEA) of 18° to 25°.
Hip dysplasia is a condition that occurs when the hip socket (acetabulum) is too shallow to fully support the ball of the hip joint, called the femoral head. This typically affects a developing fetus, a condition called congenital hip dysplasia
A hip pointer is a term that covers a variety of hip pains caused by an impact on the hip. Athletes are typically among those who contend with hip pointers. With appropriate rest and recovery, though, they can be back on the field in no time.
Osteotomy is a surgical technique used to correct alignment or malunion in a bone. It may be used to fix a broken bone that healed incorrectly, remove part of a bone, or cut open a bone.
