Editorial Commentary: Intra-abdominal Fluid Extravasation During Hip Arthroscopy—Although Rare, Don't Be Complacent

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial

Abstract

Hip arthroscopy has become the gold standard for the treatment of femoroacetabular impingement syndrome. Intra-abdominal fluid extravasation is the most commonly reported major complication, with variable rates depending on the measurement method. Little is known about the evolution of the fluid extravasation throughout the surgical procedure, and the risk factors for this complication are in need of validation. We recommend performing mitigating actions including keeping the surgical time to a minimum, monitoring core body temperature, performing psoas release (if planned) last, and keeping inflow fluid pressure as low as possible.
