This is a retrospective study of 66 patients who were diagnosed by arthroscopy with a hip labral tear. Retrospective means the researchers looked back after the diagnosis was made to see if there was any way to tell what the problem was. For example, did all the patients have a limp? Did they all have hip and/or groin pain? Was there any one clinical test that was positive for every patient to point to a labral tear?

Diagnosis of labral tears can be difficult. The wrong diagnosis is often made, and time is wasted on the wrong treatment. Sometimes surgery is done on the wrong body part. The results of this study may help change that. The authors report 95 per cent of the patients had a positive impingement sig...
