Arthroscopic Reconstruction of Segmental Defects of the Hip Labrum: Results in 22 Patients With Mean 2-Year Follow-Up.


To report mean 2-year patient-reported outcomes (PROs) and the incidence of revision hip arthroscopy or conversion to total hip arthroplasty (THA) in patients who had undergone arthroscopic reconstruction of the hip labrum for segmental defects.

METHODS:Data were prospectively collected and retrospectively reviewed on all patients who had undergone hip arthroscopy from April 2008 to April 2013. All patients who underwent arthroscopic labral reconstruction with either a semitendinosus allograft or a gracilis autograft with mean 2-year follow-up were part of the inclusion criteria. The following outcomes were recorded: modified Harris hip score, nonarthritic athletic hip score, hip outcome score-sports-specific subscale, hip outcome score-activities of daily living subscale, visual analog scale, for pain, patient satisfaction, revision hip arthroscopies, and conversion to THA. A 2-tailed Student's t-test was used to assess for statistically significant differences between the mean of preoperative and postoperative PROs. P values less than .05 were considered statistically significant.
