NELLENSTEIJN, JM  and  VILLAR, RN. Hip arthroscopy: What to tell your patient. SA orthop. j. [online]. 2016, vol.15, n.1, pp.33-40. ISSN 2309-8309.

Hip arthroscopy has gained popularity in recent years. Although femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is the most common indication for performing the procedure, there are many other conditions affecting the hip joint and its surrounding structures that can also be treated arthroscopically. Before undergoing hip arthroscopy, patients need to be informed about the chances of success of their procedure. In this article we give an overview of the current indications for hip arthroscopic surgery and their clinical outcomes, as revealed in the recent literature.

Keywords : hip arthroscopy; femoroacetabular impingement; patient counselling.
