The use of arthroscopy to document accurate position of core decompression of the hip.

Publication ,  Journal Article
Ruch, DS; Satterfield, W
Published in: Arthroscopy
September 1998

The use of hip arthroscopy is documented as a means of determining accurate placement for core decompression of the femoral head. The authors describe the technique whereby the patient is placed on the fracture table in the supine position and the guide wire for the core decompression is inserted into the middle of the infarct. The surgeon is assured of accurate placement within the center of the infarct.
