Abstract Background and Objective Hip impingement with labral tears is an accepted diagnosis in young adults with insidious non-arthritic hip pain. To date, gender-specific morphological data in these patients is lacking. Our objective was to compare males and females hip morphology in this population of athletic individuals. Methods Our hip arthroscopy registry from March 2008 to April 2010 was reviewed. Inclusion criteria were: age 18-30, insidious pain, MRI confirming labral tear, and primary arthroscopy.
