Early & Mid-term results

Management of labraltears of the hip has beenshown to provide pain relief and improve function in appropriatelyselected patients. Most outcome studies to date have lookedonly at surgery addressing labraltears in isolation. Improvedresults should be expected if the underlying disorder is concurrentlyaddressed. Strict attention to the acquisition of a thoroughhistory, the performance of a thorough physical examination,the use of appropriate imaging techniques such as magnetic resonanceimaging, and the adherence to safe and reproducible surgicaltechniques as described in this paper are essential to the successof this procedure.
