Abstract

Labral repair has become an essential technique in the arthroscopic surgical management of femoroacetabular impingement. Several clinical studies suggest that labral repair results in superior patient outcomes in comparison to labral debridement alone. The repair procedure requires accurate evaluation of labral tissue quality, precise placement of sutures and anchors, and careful re-tensioning of the labrum. We present our preferred technique for labral repair.
