Hip Arthroscopy for Femoroacetabular Impingement




Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) occurs when anatomic variation of the hip causes impingement between the femoral-head junction and the acetabular rim during functional range of motion. Cam impingement occurs when a prominent head-neck junction contacts the acetabular rim during hip flexion ( Figure 8-1 ). Pincer impingement occurs when the acetabulum has localized or global overcoverage leading to contact of the rim with the femoral head-heck junction during normal hip motion ( Figure 8-2 ).
