Labral debridement, repair and reconstruction: current concepts


Proper treatment of labral pathology is under debate. The treatments currently available to hip surgeons are: conservative treatment, labral debridement, repair and reconstruction while concomitantly addressing bony dysmorphisms. The data available to assist surgeons to make the correct treatment decisions are inconclusive. In this current concepts review, the technical aspects and currently available literature to assist in the decision-making process with these treatment modalities are reviewed. The exact indications for each procedure are still up for debate and ongoing research will better define the ideal patients for each procedure. The purpose of this narrative review was to discuss the current research on debridement, repair and reconstruction as well as the techniques that are currently reported in the literature.
