Author information

  • 1Department of Orthopaedics, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada.


The arthroscopic anatomy of the hip has been studied using a number of portals. Both distraction and positioning are necessary to allow insertion of instruments, and to allow exposure of the important anatomical structures. The internal anatomy of the hip joint is described in detail based on the arthroscopic view from the different portals. This study helps orient those interested in arthroscopy of the hip.
