Summary:Since the first description of femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) by Ganz early in the twenty-first century, hundreds of publications have addressed diagnostic and therapeutic issues and contributed to rapid advances in our knowledge of the disease. This book, however, is the first monograph to examine all aspects of FAI. Comprising 27 chapters and including many color illustrations, the book contains a variety of points of view from more than 50 experts from 11 countries and represents an up-to-date compilation of professional knowledge on FAI. The full range of available surgical treatments is carefully described and evaluated, including arthroscopic treatment, the open and mini-open approaches, periacetabular osteotomy, hip resurfacing arthroplasty, and combined techniques. Differential diagnosis, imaging, postoperative management, and treatment outcome are also discussed in appropriate detail. It is hoped that this book will promote a comprehensive approach to what is a common pathology and thereby encourage further improvement in treatment
