2013 - Borderline Hip Dysplasia

Background: The role of hip arthroscopy in the treatment of patients with dysplasia is unclear because of the spectrum of dys- plasia that exists. Patients with borderline dysplasia are generally not candidates for periacetabular osteotomy because of the invasive nature of the procedure. However, arthroscopy in dysplasia has had mixed results and has the potential to exacerbate instability.

Hypothesis: Patients with borderline dysplasia will demonstrate postoperative improvement, high satisfaction rates, and low reoperation rates after a surgical approach that includes arthroscopic labral repair augmented by capsular plication with inferior shift.

Study Design: Case series; Level of evidence, 4.
