Arthrex hip arthroscopy


  • Procedure/Product Pages (18)
    • Bursectomy 0 small
      • An arthroscopic approach can be used to release a portion of the iliotibail band followed by removal of the trochanteric bursa using mechanized shaver blades. 
    • Capsular repair 0 small
      • Following capsulotomy of the hip capsular structures to gain better access to the hip joint, employ suture-passing devices to shuttle suture through the remaining leaflets of the capsule to reapproximate them. 
    • Capsulotomy 0 small
      • A capsulotomy is typically made through the iliofemoral ligament once the anterolateral and midanterior portals are established, allowing better access to the hip joint. This is performed with a retractable cannulated knife and/or CapsuleCut™ disposable blade, shavers, and radiofrequency devices.
    • Chondroplasty 0 small
      • A reshaping of the articular cartilage by means of shaver, curette, burr or Chondro Pick by cleaning out loose articular cartilage and treatment of the underlying bone.
    • Hip debridement 0 small
      • Debridement of degenerated labrum, chondral flaps, or synovitis is easily accomplished with Arthrex's selection of hip-length straight or curved shaver blades and ApolloRF® ablaters designed specifically for hip arthroscopic procedures.
    • Diagnostic arthroscopy 0 small
      • Diagnostic hip arthroscopy is pursued when all conservative measures have been exhausted.   The Arthrex Hip Instruments facilitate quick, safe and reproducible joint access. 
    • Graft prep 0 small
      • An intra-articular measurement is taken to determine the needed allograft length. On a graft prep station, the allograft is cut to length and both ends are whipstitched using the Arthrex FiberLoop®.   
    • Iliopsoas release 0 small
      • Exposure of the Iliopsoas tendon requires capsulotomy to the level of the Psoas notch.  A small portion of the Iliopsoas tendon is then released to correct internal snapping of the tendon. 
    • It band release 0 small
      • The arthroscope can be introduced deep to the IT band where a small window is made and then resection of the trochanteric bursa is completed.  Most of the pathology lies just posterior to the greater trochanter.
    • Labral reconstruction 0 small
      • Once the allograft is prepared and ready for implantation, the holes are drilled for the 2.9 PushLock anchors in the acetabular rim where the location of the ends of the allograft will lay.  The suture in the allograft is then loaded into one of the PushLock anchors and inserted.  The other end of the graft is …
    • Labral repair 0 small
      • Using one of a number of Arthrex suture passing devices, stitches are placed in the labrum.  This can be of the simple suture configuration or labral base stitch with a single pass or in vertical mattress fashion.  When using SutureTak, the anchor is placed before passing the stitch.  If using a PushLock anchor the …
    • Hip microfracture 0 small
      • Microfracture cartilage repair is performed by creating tiny fractures in the underlying bone of an OCD lesion using Chondro Picks. The resulting blood clot initiates the development of fibrocartilage, which often will fill the defect site.
    • Osteoplasty 0 small
      • Removal of the Cam or Pincer lesion with or without takedown and repair of the acetabular labrum. This may also include removal of the Cam lesion.
    • Proximal hamstring repair 0 small
      • In an open or endoscopic manner, the ischial tuberosity of the pelvis is located and debrided. The tendinous origin of the hamstring muscle group is found and reattached back to the ischial tuberosity.
    • Proximal hamstring tear 0 small
      • The hamstring tendon is typically avulsed directly from the lateral aspect of the ischium without bony involvement.  
    • Removal of cartilage 0 small
      • Depending on surgeon preference, a shaver or curette is utilized to debride damaged or diseased articular cartilage surrounding the site of the chondral defect.  
    • Removal of loose bodies hip 0 small
      • As part of the arthroscopic debridement procedure, the removal of loose bodies is indicated when joint pain or joint locking persists despite non-operative treatment. This is accomplished by establishing multiple portals and extracting the loose bodies using the Arthrex Hip Instruments including the NavX instrumentation.  This may …
    • Snapping hip release 0 small
      • External snapping hip requires release of the iliotibial band and resection of the trochanteric bursa.  Internal snapping hip requires release of the iliopsoas (psoas) tendon. These procedures are often performed with shaver blades, radio frequency probes, and knife blades.
