Editorial Commentary: Lumbosacral Anatomy and Mechanics Influence Femoroacetabular Impingement Syndrome and Surgical Outcomes: The Hip Bone Is Connected to the Back Bone

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review

Abstract

The hip joint in general and femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) in particular do not exist in a vacuum. Impingement kinematics are very closely tied to the relationship between spinopelvic motion and posture, and that of the hip joint itself. While the relationship of lumbar degenerative disease, fusion, and sagittal balance to hip arthroplasty has been well studied, there is a paucity of data on the analogous relationship of the stiff spine with hip arthroscopy and FAI. While further studies are critical in advancing our understanding of this relationship in this unique population, surgeons still must consider the relationship of lumbosacral motion and posture, including the anatomic variant of lumbosacral transitional vertebrae, when evaluating and treating patients with FAI.
