Femoroacetabular Impingement

Chapter

Abstract

Until recently, the mechanism for osteoarthritis (OA) of the hip was based on the biomechanical principles of force transmission and chronic axial overload leading to intraarticular cartilage degeneration. It has been revealed that primary OA of the hip is in fact a rare occurrence [1] and that the majority of patients with degenerative joint disease (DJD) of the hip severe enough to warrant total hip arthroplasty (THA) have a structural disorder of the hip joint [1–3].
