Femoroacetabular impingement represents a common cause of hip pain in adolescents. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of simultaneous bilateral hip arthroscopy for bilateral symptomatic femoroacetabular impingement in adolescent athletes.


Clinical data were collected in a prospective database on patients who underwent unilateral or simultaneous bilateral hip arthroscopy and included complications, reoperation rate, and return to play time. Differences in International Hip Outcome Tool (iHOT)-12 scores according to hip side and postoperative follow-up time (preoperative, 1.5, 3, 6, 12, and 24 mo) were evaluated using a 2×6 repeated-measures analysis of variance with post hoc repeated-measures 1-way analysis of variance and Bonferroni-corrected paired t tests.


In total, 24 patients (36 hips) were studied, of whom 12 underwent simultaneous bilateral hip arthroscopy (24 hips) and a case-matched control group of 12 patients underwent unilateral hip arthroscopy. There were 5 males in each group (41.7%). Average age was 15.7 and 16.5 years in the bilateral and unilateral groups, respectively. No patients were lost to follow-up. In the bilateral group, a significant increase in mean iHOT-12 score was observed between 1.5- and 3-month follow-up (61.8 vs. 82.8, respectively; P=0.003), and 6-, 12-, and 24-month follow-up (91.4, 95.1, and 96.6, respectively, P=0.004). At all follow-up times, there were no significant differences in mean iHOT-12 scores or other outcome measures between bilateral and unilateral cohorts. Time to return to preinjury level of activity was similar between the bilateral and unilateral groups (4.7 vs. 4.9 mo, respectively; P=0.40). One transient lateral femoral cutaneous nerve palsy occurred in each group, though no other complications were documented. No patients required revision surgery by latest follow-up.


Bilateral simultaneous hip arthroscopy is safe and reproducible in adolescent athletes, achieving equivalent outcomes, and similar rehabilitation time when compared with unilateral surgery.LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Level II-therapeutic study.
