Abstract

This report describes the arthroscopic management of a case of incarcerating pincer-type femoroacetabular impingement. The hip joint had a marked restriction of range of motion and secondary pain as a result of osteophytes wrapping around the femoral head down the femoral neck. The patient was treated with staged bilateral hip arthroscopy. The procedures were initially performed through the peripheral compartment to remove the incarcerating acetabular rim, followed by arthroscopy of the central compartment with acetabuloplasty and femoral head osteochondroplasty. The patient's treatment has led to an excellent clinical and radiographic result at 24 months' follow-up despite an unrelated pelvic fracture sustained in the postoperative period. This technique emphasizes the capabilities of hip arthroscopy in advanced cases of femoroacetabular impingement as an alternative to arthroplasty for patients with healthy articular cartilage.
