Symptomatic FAI favorably treated with arthroscopy

April 25, 2015

LOS ANGELES — Symptomatic femoroacetabular impingement developed in adolescents through athletic activities can be treated favorably with arthroscopy, according to data presented here at the Arthroscopy Association of North America Annual Meeting.

“Athletic activities were implicated in the development of symptomatic [femoroacetabular impingement] FAI at a young age. This study reports favorable outcomes of arthroscopic treatment FAI among adolescent athletes,” J.W. Thomas Byrd, MD, said in his presentation. “A high portion were improved, although only 85% actually returned to sport, so return to sport may be influenced by factors other than the success of the procedure.”
