The size of the labrum of the hip found at the time of arthroscopy can be predicted by measuring the labrum on preoperative magnetic resonance imaging/magnetic resonance arthrography, which may lead to consideration of using this measurement for preoperative planning. While normal labral anatomy is becoming better understood and our ability to preoperatively evaluate this improves, more evaluation is warranted to determine if, and at what point, labral width should influence treatment decisions, including labral repair techniques or the decision to reconstruct the labrum with allograft or autograft.
