Chondrolabral complex is a weak point along an histological transition zone. Most cartilage and labral lesions in the femoroacetabular impingement syndrome are located in this area. Different classifications are used to evaluate the severity and predict the prognosis of chondrolabral complex injuries. Acetabular Labrum Articular Disruption (ALAD) and Multicenter Arthroscopy of the Hip Outcomes Research Network (MAHORN) classifications are commonly used with a prognosis and treatment implication. Treatment of chondrolabral lesions detected on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), should only be considered when clinical symptoms are presented. A wide range of treatment options include debridement with or without microfracture, repair or regenerate therapies. The future of hip joint preservation should be directed towards to the development of the treatment of chondrolabral injuries.
Key words: Hip joint / Cartilage / Chondrolabral junction / Arthroscopy / Treatment options
