Abstract

Biomechanical stability is the primary function of the acetabular labrum. It provides a hip suction seal and optimal joint function. Labral tears are a common reason for hip arthroscopy, to improve patient function and to prevent long-term degenerative arthropathy. Arthroscopic labral repair has shown significantly better outcomes in return to premorbid activity levels when compared with labral debridement. Injury to the acetabular labrum is a challenge and can lead to long-term complications. In this scenario, arthroscopic labral reconstruction has shown good results regarding patient subjective and objective outcomes. We describe a technique for complete arthroscopic labral reconstruction using tensor fascia lata allograft.
