* Type I: These lesions involve the isolated fraying of the superior labrum surrounding the socket, without detaching completely from the glenoid.
Normal labral variants that manifest as high T2-weighted signal in or adjacent to the labrum can be mistaken for a labral tear.
A collection parallel to the shape of the bony glenoid and extending medially is probably a normal structure, whereas a collection that turns in a lateral direction into the substance of the labrum is most likely a tear.
Labrum: Transversal de color cafe claro, area promedio de 0.3 ([+ o -] 0.01 [mm.sup.2]), mas ancho que largo, con los angulos anteriores redondeados, recubierto en la mayoria de su superficie con setas de color negro.
They concluded hip arthroscopy may "accelerate the process of arthritis" in patients with "abnormal hip morphologies." Arthroscopy only addresses the soft tissue pathology, leaving the underlying osseous abnormalities uncorrected, leading to further deterioration of the remaining labrum and articular cartilage.
Therefore, this study aimed to assess whether abnormal tissue embedded in the hip joint is avulsed acetabular cartilage, inverted acetabular labrum, or other types of tissues such as aberrant ligamentum teres, we harvested the disk-like abnormal tissue from the hip joint during surgery and performed histological staining to investigate its property.
In the Neer test, deformation of the tendon at the anterosuperior labrum occurred in one subject and mechanical contact in 24 subjects.
Este ejemplar presenta afinidad con los dos morfotipos anteriormente reportados, la conformacion de las manchas elitrales es semejante al ejemplar de Huanuco (salvo la mancha humeral que es menos conspicua) y el labrum es semejante al ejemplar tipo (Chancamayo, Cusco).
"Dysplasia can make the labrum vulnerable to tears due to instability of the femoral head within the socket," Dr.
No labral lesions were observed, although the labrum at the lateralized rim was noted to be small and thin (Figure 1(d)).
