Authors: Pim van Klij, Rintje Agricola

Abstract

Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) syndrome is defined as having symptoms, clinical signs and diagnostic imaging findings of pincer and/or cam morphology (1). The treatment of FAI syndrome can be conservative by physiotherapy or surgically, mostly by arthroscopy. Functional outcome after hip arthroscopy can be quantified in several ways. Patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) via hip specific questionnaires and return-to-play (RTP) time or percentage for athletes are most often used.
