  • CONCLUSIONS: Acetabular labral tears have become a hot topic in the field of orthopedics as a result of a surge in diagnoses likely due to improvements in imaging, most notably MRAs. This has led to considerable debate regarding how to best manage this condition. The literature overwhelmingly shows positive short-term outcomes for surgical management; however, long-term follow-up studies are lacking. The literature has demonstrated multiple case reports resulting in significant complications as a result of these operations, including chondrolysis and eventual need for total hip arthroplasty. Therefore, patient selection is critical as the population tends to be young and active, and the potential complications can be catastrophic. In any case, it is clear that further research is required.Sardon CJ, Resnick ML. Severe arthritic changes following acetabular labral repair and femoroplasty in an air force pilot.
