Abstract

Abstract The hip joint capsule is a critical static stabilizer of the hip. During hip arthroscopy, the capsule is breached to gain exposure to treat femoroacetabular impingement lesions. There have been recent concerns regarding hip instability after hip arthroscopy, and relatively few techniques have been described for atraumatic arthroscopic closure of the hip capsule. We describe an atraumatic, inside-out, 2-portal technique to repair the capsule.
