The article focuses on the influence of acetabular labral limbus in hip disease as well as its treatment. It cites cases of female patients who suffered mechanical hip pain to acetabular labral limbus and the intraoperative findings of the procedures is discussed. It mentions several hip treatment interventions such as open hip surgery and hip arthroscopy. It also states that arthroscopy is the most common indications used to treat labral abnormalities that resulted from dysplasia and trauma.

    Background: Currently, plain radiographs and MRI are the standard imaging modalities used for diagnosing femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) and preoperative planning for arthroscopic treatment of FAI. The value of three-dimensional (3D) CT for these purposes is unclear. Questions/purposes: We...
