Ischiofemoral impingement of the hip: a novel approach to treatment KNEE SURGERY SPORTS TRAUMATOLOGY ARTHROSCOPY Safran, M., Ryu, J. 2014; 22 (4): 781-785


Ischiofemoral impingement (IFI) is an uncommon source of hip pain recently described in the non-surgical hip, associated with decreased space between the lesser trochanter and the ischium. There are no reports in the English literature of surgical treatment of this problem. We describe a case of IFI in a 19-year-old female who failed conservative management and underwent endoscopic surgical intervention to increase the space between her ischium and proximal femur. More than 2 years later, the patient is doing very well with an improvement of her iHOT score of 53 points to 85.
