Capsular Suspension Technique for Hip Arthroscopy.
Hip arthroscopy has recently become a common procedure to treat central and peripheral hip pathology. Capsulotomies are necessary in these procedures, and negotiating adequate visualization, as well as capsular preservation, is a challenge. We describe a capsular suspension technique that allows for adequate visualization of the central and peripheral compartments while facilitating preservation of the native hip capsule. This technique eliminates the need for additional personnel for retraction, potentially decreases iatrogenic hip injury, eliminates the need for excessive capsular debridement, and allows for capsular closure under minimal tension.
