Surgical Technique: Arthroscopic Labral Reconstruction Using Iliotibial Band Autograft or Allograft
Labral tears cannot always be repaired. When the labrum tear is complex or previous debridement has left limited function tissue, labral reconstruction is indicated. Labral reconstruction of the hip has been demonstrated to be a safe and effective technique, with high patient satisfaction rates, improved pain, and improved patient outcome scores. Tissue for the labral reconstruction can be either autografts or allografts. This chapter described labral reconstructions using iliotibial band autograft and allograft.
