For decades, hip arthroscopy was rarely performed, and at one time, it was believed to be an impossibility. However, over time, hip arthroscopy has become an increasingly popular and more frequently performed procedure, with indications that are continually being refined. Reported indications for hip arthroscopy include labral tears, loose bodies, femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), ruptured ligamentum teres, chondral injuries, arthritis, adhesive capsulitis, instability, synovial disease, disorders of the iliopsoas tendon, tight iliotibial band, tears of the hip abductors, and diagnosis of unresolved intra-articular hip pain. (1,2) While hip arthroscopy has reasonable outcome data for some diagnoses, only limited outcome data are available regarding hip arthroscopy for many of the aforementioned indications, and additional research is needed before definitive statements can be made regarding the merits of the approach.
