Multicenter Outcomes of Endoscopic Pubic Symphysectomy for Osteitis Pubis Associated With Femoroacetabular Impingement.

Abstract: To investigate outcomes of athletic patients treated with concurrent femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) and osteitis pubis (OP) surgery including endoscopic pubic symphysectomy.

METHODS: We performed a multicenter retrospective case series of 7 consecutive adult patients (4 men) with a mean age of 33 years with symptomatic FAI and OP who underwent arthroscopic surgery for the former and endoscopic pubic symphysectomy for the latter with a mean follow-up period of 2.9 years (range, 2.0 to 5.0 years). The visual analog scale (VAS) score, the Non-Arthritic Hip Score (NAHS), and patient satisfaction were measured. Complications and revision surgical procedures were reported, and preoperative and postoperative radiographs were assessed.
