Abstract

Background: Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is one cause of hip pain, and is an under-recognized cause of early osteoarthritis, especially in young and active people. The prevalence of FAI in adults is approximately 10 -15% and depending on the clinical and radiographic findings, two types of impingement (which are often present in combination) can be distinguished: the cam type and the pincer type. Most patients (86%) have a combination of both forms of impingement.
