Revision Hip Capsular Repair and Augmentation With a Bioinductive Implant After a Post-arthroscopy Hip Subluxation Event

Arthrosc Tech. 2020 Mar 11;9(4):e453-e458. doi: 10.1016/j.eats.2019.11.019. eCollection 2020 Apr.


In the past decade, the number of hip arthroscopy procedures has exponentially increased, primarily for the treatment of femoroacetabular impingement syndrome and labral lesions. As the techniques have evolved, so has the acknowledgment of the potential complications, including iatrogenic instability that may result from soft-tissue laxity, subtle dysplastic morphologies, or residual defects from capsulotomies in which the capsular closure is insufficient. In most cases, direct capsular repair or plication can be performed at the conclusion of the procedure; however, larger defects, poor-quality tissue, or cases of gross ligamentous laxity may require reconstruction or augmentation. In such instances, several options exist. The purpose of this technical note is to describe a capsular repair augmentation with a bioinductive implant during revision hip arthroscopy.
