Abstract

Intra-articular lesions are common in patients with acetabular hip dysplasia. Rim stress fractures (RSFs) have also been described in patients with acetabular hip dysplasia. This lesion is believed to be a result of an unfused secondary ossification center or a stress fracture that could be caused by repetitive impingement of an abnormal-shaped femoral head-neck junction. In addition, osteochondritis dissecans of the acetabulum is a rare condition that can also result from impingement and has been described in patients with hip dysplasia. Here, we describe an arthroscopic technique for internal fixation of osteochondritis dissecans of the acetabulum and concomitant RSF associated with hip dysplasia in a rhythmic gymnast.
