Acetabular Labral Debridement/Segmental Resection Versus Reconstruction in the Comprehensive Treatment of Symptomatic Femoroacetabular Impingement: A Systematic Review.

Abstract:To perform a proper labral repair, most surgeons use anchors to secure the labrum to the acetabular bone. We aim to describe a technique for labral repair with a knotless tensionable suture anchor. This technique uses a looped suture configuration, allowing selective tensioning of the repair to maintain the anatomic suction seal of the hip. The use of this technique is easily reproducible and reduces the surgical time compared with previous techniques.
