Treating FAI with a Labral Tear Using the Paradigm™ Hip System and PressFT™ Flex Anchor System

Femoroacetabular impingement, also referred to as FAI, is a condition resulting from bone overgrowth on the femoral head (known as cam spurs) and/or on the acetabulum (known as pincer spurs). These bone spurs create abnormal contact in the hip joint which can result in damage to the labrum and/or the articular cartilage.

When treating FAI arthroscopically, CONMED offers a full portfolio of products from accessing the hip joint to repair of the labrum.
