Editorial Commentary: Hip Femoroacetabular Impingement Correction: Risk Versus Reward, or How Much Is Too Much?

Abstract

When performing arthroscopic surgical management of symptomatic cases of hip femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), it is important to consider how much cam lesion resection is required, if any. Generally, failure to adequately address a cam lesion could result in progressive damage to the articular cartilage. Thus, while it is important to consider exactly how much arthroscopic intervention is necessary to achieve successful results, the potential consequences of neglecting a cam lesion are at least as worrisome as the risks of indicated cam lesion treatment.
