Femoracetabular impingement is a condition that is being further developed and understood. Cam-type and pincer-type impingement can result in degenerative joint disease. Arthroscopic management of femoracetabular impingement has recently received attention.
Arthroscopy may potentially be used as an adjunct during closed reduction for hip dysplasia in infants. Arthroscopy may allow for the visualization of impediments to reduction, transection of the transverse acetabular ligament, and assessment of reduction.
