Clinical Outcomes After Arthroscopic Psoas Lengthening: The Effect of Femoral Version
Fabricant PD et al. – Patients with increased femoral anteversion may be at greater risk for inferior clinical outcomes after arthroscopic lengthening of a symptomatic, snapping psoas tendon. The psoas tendon may be an important passive and dynamic stabilizer of the hip in these patients, and release may result in a greater alteration of kinematics with high–demand activities, particularly terminal extension and external rotation when the tendon is typically at its highest tension. These results may help surgeons identify which patients may be at risk for inferior clinical outcome after psoas lengthening.
