Outcomes after hip arthroscopy in FAI

What do the statistics say?

Hip arthroscopy is widely prevalent for the management of symptomatic femoral acetabular impingement (FAI) following failed conservative rehabilitation.

This meta-analysis and systematic review demonstrated excellent objective and subjective postoperative outcomes after hip arthroscopy for FAI.

The rate of reoperation was 5.5%, and the risk of clinical complications was 1.7%. Return to sports rates was approximately 88%, and all patient-reported outcomes (PRO's) consistently indicated a significant postoperative improvement.
