Summary: We propose a labral reconstruction technique that will eliminate inaccuracies in graft measurement, while incorporating beneficial characteristics of the knotless suture.

Abstract:
Arthroscopic labral reconstruction has become the favored procedure for an irreparable hip labrum in the non-arthritic hip population. Although labral reconstruction is a relatively new procedure, data in the literature demonstrates favorable outcomes. Patients have shown beneficial outcomes from labral reconstructive surgery as well as when compared to labral repair and debridement patients. However, one of the challenges in performing labral reconstruction has been correctly measuring the graft to perfectly fit the area of labral deficiency. We propose a labral reconstruction technique that will eliminate inaccuracies in graft measurement, while incorporating beneficial characteristics of the knotless suture. The advantages of this technique will increase procedural accuracy and brevity.
