The rationale for a second edition of Operative Hip Arthroscopy is well developed. The technique continues to evolve and represent fertile ground for a new edition. There is also a considerable amount of new information that needs to be shared with surgeons and residents who are performing this innovative procedure.Completely revised and updated throughout, this new edition focuses on the technical and clinical aspects of performing arthroscopic hip procedures. The editor, a pioneer in the field, has assembled a distinguished group of international contributors. This text presents comprehensive, timely information on all major arthroscopic approaches. Each chapter is supported by beautiful color photographs and line drawings, gross and arthroscopic anatomy, information on pitfalls, complications and rehabilitation, and a wide range of illustrative case studies. Five new chapters have been added, including precise discussions of: extraarticular sources of hip pain; endoscopic treatments; arthroscopic assisted and combined open hip procedures; hip arthroscopy in athletes; and hip arthroscopy in children. Also included are expanded chapters on outcome data and the latest imaging techniques using MRI and injection dyes to better assess problems of this complex joint.
