Hip Labral Reconstruction: “Pull-Through” Technique
There is a new hip labral reconstruction technique, developed by Colorado Springs Orthopaedic Group’s Sports Medicine expert, Michael J. Huang, MD. that is revolutionizing the field of sports medicine. Learn more about his new “pull-through” technique and how it is being used to treat sports injuries.
New Hip Labral Reconstruction Technique leads to increased accuracy and efficiency
Pioneered by Dr. Michael Huang of Colorado Springs Orthopaedic Group, a new “pull-through” technique for Arthroscopic Labral Reconstruction in the hip has been shown to lead to better outcomes in hip preservation due to the more efficient use of the graft. Alternative Arthroscopic techniques require the surgeon to manipulate the surgical graft significantly, leaving the graft vulnerable to fraying. With this innovative “pull-through” technique, there is minimal manipulation of the surgical graft, eliminating the potential for fraying and providing additional longevity to the procedure.
Further, Nakashima et al. reported significant improvements in postoperative outcomes for patients who underwent this modified technique after two years post-surgery. In addition to this, Domb et al. found significant improvements to patient outcomes five years after surgery if they underwent this modified technique.
