Techniques and results for open hip preservation

By David Levy, Michael David Hellman, Bryan Haughom, Michael Stover and Shane J Nho


While hip arthroscopy grows in popularity, there are still many circumstances under which open hip preservation is most appropriately indicated. This article specifically reviews open hip preservation procedures for a variety of hip conditions. Femoral acetabular impingement may be corrected using an open surgical hip dislocation. Acetabular dysplasia may be corrected using a periacetabular osteotomy. Acetabular protrusio may require surgical hip dislocation with rim trimming and a possible valgus intertrochanteric osteotomy. Legg-Calve ́-Perthes disease produces complex deformities that may be better served with osteotomies of the proximal femur and/ or acetabulum. Chronic slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) may also benefit from a surgical hip dislocation and/or proximal femoral osteotomy
