John J. Christoforetti, MD, (Allen, TX) shares technical pearls for inserting anchors into the acetabulum using curved and straight guides. He also discusses safe joint access when beginning hip arthroscopy procedures. In this cadaveric and sawbones demonstration, Dr. Christoforetti reviews the appropriate use of the curved anchor delivery system during acetabular labral repair and details a unique method for entering the hip joint with minimal damage to surrounding anatomy during periportal capsulotomies.
