1 Update on Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery
Henley Management College 8th May 2008

2 Hip arthroscopy

3 Indications for hip arthroscopy
Labral tears Loose bodies / foreign bodies Ligamentum teres tears Synovial chondromatosis Sepsis – diagnosis and treatment Assessment of painful hip Chondral lesions not seen on Xray / MRI

4 Pain C-sign distribution Groin Referred to L3 dermatome
(Anteromedial thigh)

5 Characteristic Hip Symptoms
Symptoms worse with activities: Twisting / turning /changing directions Rising from seated position (catching) Difficulty with stairs (up and down) Difficulty with getting in / out of cars Difficulty with socks / toe nails / shoes etc. Dyspareunia

6 Peripheral Compartment
Anterior neck Medial neck Medial head Anterior head Lateral head Lateral neck Posterior Dienst et al (2001) Arthroscopy 17, 924

7 Central Compartment Articular cartilage Cotyloid fossa
Acetabulum Femoral head Cotyloid fossa Ligamentum teres Labrum

8 So how do we do it…

9 Central Compartment Set - Up
Problems Large distraction force required Specialist equipment Operative time limited by distraction time Complications

10 Complications Nerve traction injury
Pudendal and sciatic nerves Direct nerve injury (portal placement) Femoral and sciatic nerves Perineal oedema / bruising / tears Chondral scuffing

11 Supine Position Patient positioned supine on fracture table
Oversized padded perineal post 12cm outer diameter Positioned laterally against the thigh

12 Table Options S&N Hip Positioning System Maquet Fracture Table

13 Lateral Position

14 Working Portals

15 Establishing Portals - 1
Anterolateral portal first – (safe zone)

16 Establishing Portals - 2

17 Establishing Portals - 3
Subsequent portals under direct vision

18 Labral Tears

19 Loose Bodies

20 Femoroacetabular impingement
Abutment of anterior femoral head-neck junction against anterior aspect of acetabular rim or labrum

21 Femoroacetabular impingement
First recognised as consequence of PAO Dysplastic acetabulum repositioned in more anterior and lateral position Proximal femur (insufficient head-neck offset) abutted against newly positioned anterior aspect of the acetabular rim in flexion, IR and adduction

22 Femoroacetabular impingement
Subsequently recognised in young active adults who presented with groin pain, and who had not had PAO Arthrotomies revealed damage to the anterior aspect of the acetabular labrum and articular cartilage Similar to what is seen in Perthes and SCFE All have reduction in femoral head-neck offset

23 Imaging of FAI Femoral neck bump on Xray or MRI
Acetabular retroversion Coxa profunda Protrusio acetabuli Ossification of rim

24 Alpha angle – fat sat T1 MRI
Kassarjlan et al: Radiology 2005; 236: Abnormal if > 55 degrees

25 Cam and Pincer Impingement

26 Symptoms of FAI Slow onset of groin pain
Pain after trivial traumatic incident Exacerbated by periods of activity Pain on prolonged sitting and walking Limited range of motion IR and adduction in flexion

27 Peripheral Compartment



30 Controversies Will hip arthroscopy delay onset of arthritis
Is it better than mini-open procedures for FAI


32 Any questions….
