Summary: We present a case report for irreparable instability of the hip, provide our indications for capsular reconstruction, and describe the surgical technique with acellular dermal extracellular matrix.

Abstract:
Atraumatic instability of the hip has become an increasingly studied occurrence in recent years. There are several established surgical techniques that help restore stability of the native hip joint. In some cases these procedures are not an option. As the phenomenon has become more frequently recognized, a larger number of revision surgeries are warranted in patients with ligamentous laxity. A durable solution for irreparable microinstability needs to be formulated to address this vulnerable patient demographic. We present a case report for irreparable instability of the hip, provide our indications for capsular reconstruction, and describe the surgical technique with acellular dermal extracellular matrix.
