Femoral Derotation Osteotomy Technique for Excessive Femoral Anteversion.

Abstract: Excessive femoral anteversion may lead to increasing stress placed on the anterior acetabulum and soft tissues, which can predispose to intra-articular hip pathology. By addressing the excessive femoral anteversion in combination with intra-articular hip pathology, the results will be durable over time. This technique details how to perform a femoral derotation osteotomy for excessive femoral anteversion after addressing intra-articular pathology with hip arthroscopy in one surgical intervention. This allows the surgeon to address both the underlying pathoanatomy and the resultant intra-articular sequelae.
