There is increasing interest in fine tuning of hip arthroscopy to improve the long-term outcomes of femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) surgery. Recently, some advocated for rim trimming and labral refixation without taking down the labrum, using a so-called over-the-top technique. Although some studies have already reported on the outcomes of this procedure, very few have focused on how maintaining an unharmed chondrolabral junction may decrease cartilage wear over time. Preserving labral attachment should be the standard of care in the treatment of FAI, to keep the suction seal working normally.
