Gender Patterns in Sports Participation Among Athletes Undergoing Arthroscopic Hip Preserving Surgery: Does the ACL Teach Us Anything?
The findings of the MASH Study Group related to injuries by gender will be presented at the International Society of Hip Arthroscopy. This leading organization of top surgeons specialize in hip arthroscopy and the treatment of hip pain in adolescents and young adults.
Arthroscopic Reconstruction of the Acetabular Labrum
Dr. Carreira detailed his technique and outcomes for irreparable labrum tears at the International Society of Hip Arthroscopy Annual Meeting in San Francisco on September 15, 2016. “Arthroscopic Reconstruction of the Acetabular Labrum using Allograft Fascia Lata: Technique and Minimum 2 Year Follow-up”. This procedure is indicated in rare circumstances where the labrum cannot be refixated because of poor quality of the native labrum tissue.
Hip Dysplasia: Prevalence, Associated Findings and Procedures
On August 10, 2016, the MASH Study Group published its findings related to hip dysplasia at the 3rd Annual Pan Pacific Orthopedic Conference in Honolulu, Hawaii. The MASH Study Group surgeons and doctors discovered that patients with shallow hip sockets require specific imaging and evaluation to assess whether they are candidates for hip arthroscopy and/or periacetabular osteotomy (PAO).
Recommended Techniques for Treating Femoroacetabular Impingement
In early August of this year, Dr. Carreira presented technique recommendations related to the treatment of FAI on the acetabular side at the 2016 Chicago Sports Medicine Symposium. AIIS impingement (Subspine Impingement), a rare cause of femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), was also presented with guidelines in identification and treatment arthrsocopically.
