Contributors: Marc J Philippon, MD

Preserving the acetabular labrum is crucial for the proper function of the hip joint. When the remaining labrum is viable, the graft is used to augment the native tissue. The vascularization and innervation of the native labrum enhances tissue healing and results in better graft integration. When the remaining labrum is deficient but also non-viable, the native tissue is debrided. The graft replaces the remaining native labrum and the fills up the defect. Augmented versus reconstructed acetabular labrum are demonstrated.
