Description: Femoroacetabular impingement is a condition of too much friction in the hip joint creating damage to the articular cartilage or the labrum or both. Ganz et al. and Lavigne et al. have identified femoroacetabular impingement as the predominant cause of labral tears in the non dysplastic hip. Abnormal hip morphology can limit motion and result in repetitive impact of the proximal portion of the femoral neck against the acetabular labrum and its adjacent cartilage.
