Many of the described labral-reconstruction procedures are purely arthroscopic. This approach only allows segmentary reconstructions. For more extensive reconstructions, surgical dislocation of the hip still represents the more suitable approach. We present an arthroscopy-assisted procedure combined with an anterior mini-open approach, which could be considered for reconstruction of nonrepairable labral lesions located in the posterior aspect of the acetabulum and massive reconstructions in cases of global-pincer femoroacetabular impingement and protrusio acetabuli. Our technique saves the morbidity that might be related to the surgical dislocation of the hip and incorporates a peroneus brevis tendon allograft. This option may restore the anatomy and labral function without morbidity at the donor site, as well as remove graft length restrictions during massive reconstructions.
