Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is not a new idea but hip arthroscopy has allowed identification and surgical treatment of a greater number of patients. This increase is also partly the result of the confusion use of terminology which has resulted in ‘morphology’ being mistaken for ‘pathology’. This article clearly describes the difference between these two states, with a clear definition for the pathological state of FAI syndrome (FAIS), as well as the battery of tests needed to exclude or include a diagnosis of FAIS. This allows you to be confident about deciding whether FAIS is the cause of your patient’s hip/groin pain or not, enabling them to potentially avoid unnecessary and invasive surgery. Additionally, the article explains how the cam morphology is thought to occur, allowing you to advise children and adolescents on their activity levels during the crucial ‘growth spurt’ stage and so reduce the risk of cam development.
