A proper relationship between the proximal femur and acetabulum is essential for normal hip biomechanics. Subtle anatomic variations on either side of the joint may result in a pathomechanical environment leading to increased pressure on the acetabular labrum and acetabular articular cartilage. This concept of femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) has been refined by Ganz et al. and is postulated to result in osteoarthritis secondary to repetitive microtrauma to the femoral head-neck junction and/or the acetabular rim complex [1].
