Minimum 2-Year Outcomes of Arthroscopic Management of Symptomatic Hip Labrum Tears in Patients With Global Acetabular Overcoverage.


To report minimum 2-year patient-reported outcomes (PROs) after hip arthroscopy (HA) for symptomatic labral tears in patients with global acetabular overcoverage.


This study was a retrospective case series of patients who underwent HA from April 2008 to April 2013. The inclusion criteria were patients with global acetabular overcoverage, defined as a lateral center-edge angle greater than 40°, and with coxa profunda, defined radiologically by the ilioischial line lateral to the acetabular floor. Only patients with minimum 2-year follow-up and no history of hip conditions or surgery were included. We recorded demographic, examination, radiologic, and intraoperative findings; intraoperative procedures performed; and the following PROs: modified Harris Hip Score (mHHS), Non-Arthritic Hip Score, Hip Outcome Score-Activities of Daily Living (HOS-ADL), Hip Outcome Score-Sports-Specific Subscale (HOS-SSS), visual analog scale, and patient satisfaction.
