Endoscopic iliopsoas tenotomy for iliopsoas impingement on a collared femoral prosthesis.

Abstract: Groin pain after total hip replacement is an uncommon event and may be the result of several causes, including iliopsoas impingement. We describe the case of a 51-year-old woman who was diagnosed with iliopsoas impingement after total hip replacement with a collared femoral stem.
