Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) has gained much attention over the past decade. It has been associated with hip and groin pain, decreased hip function and can ultimately lead to osteoarthritis. A recent consensus meeting defined FAI as “a clinical entity in which a pathological mechanical process causes hip pain when morphological abnormalities of the acetabulum and/or femur, combined with vigorous hip motion (especially at the extremes), lead to repetitive collisions that damage the soft-tissue structures within the joint itself.” However, there is a lack of clarity regarding the definition of morphological abnormalities.
