The field of hip arthroscopy has rapidly evolved over the past 2 decades. Originally, surgical treatment of the hip primarily involved resection of damaged tissue. More recently, arthroscopic surgical procedures that aim to preserve and restore the function of the labrum have been advocated and have shown superior results when compared with debridement or excision.
Distinguishing whether your hip or groin is the primary cause of your pain is not always easy. There are many bodily structures in the area, including muscles, bones, tendons, and ligaments. They may all contribute to your pain. Also, there are many different conditions that can be causing pain.
When it comes to strengthening your lower-body muscles that power your running, most runners focus on quads and hamstrings—but are you showing your hip flexors enough love? A recent study in the Archives of Gerontology and Geriatrics suggests that ignoring them could lead to mobility issues as you age.
Arthroscopic surgery, also known simply as arthroscopy, is a minimally invasive orthopedic procedure used to diagnose and treat joint problems. It involves the use of a narrow scope, called an arthroscope, and specialized surgical tools to access a joint through tiny "keyhole" incisions. Because arthroscopic surgery requires smaller incisions than open surgery, recovery times tend to be shorter.
The optimal fixation technique in periacetabular osteotomy (PAO) remains controversial. This study aims to assess the in vivo stability of fixation in PAO with and without the use of a transverse screw.
