The hip is a ball and socket joint, with the head of the femur constituting the ball. This articulates with the acetabular fossa, which is the socketed surface of the pelvis. The arrangement allows for a wide degree of motion, but not as much as in the shoulder, which is the other ball and socket joint of the body. The junction between the femur and acetabulum is covered with a thick layer of hyaline articular cartilage that protects the bones from wear and tear. For additional support, the acetabulum is lined with a fibrocartilaginous material referred to as the acetabular labrum. The labrum is susceptible to tears most often resulting from sports injuries that trigger femoral acetabular impingement (FAI). Thus, hip arthroscopy is generally performed in young athletic patients. The two types of FAI are pincer type and cam type. In pincer type FAI, the acetabular cup overhangs the femoral head and can cause the labrum to get pinched and torn, which would require a labral repair procedure in addition to an FAI. The surgery involves shaving down the overhanging lip of the acetabulum, which is the FAI repair aspect of the procedure, followed by labral repair. In the cam type of FAI, a bony growth occurs on the femoral head as a result of genetics or trauma and may also cause tearing of the labrum. In these procedures, the bump is removed as part of FAI repair and in cases where the labrum is torn it will also be repaired with the use of suture anchors. Alternately, surgeons sometimes do not repair the labrum if they do not believe the tear is significant, or they will debride it or remove it entirely. These cases are becoming less prominent as labral repair is receiving more positive clinical outcomes. Abstract The hip arthroscopy market can be segmented by device type, yielding five segments: radiofrequency (RF) probes, banana blades, hip access kits, suture anchors and disposable suture passers. RF probes can be further segmented by product type, yielding two sub-segments: articulating RF probes and static RF probes.
