Original Title: Artroscopia de cadera como tratamiento de la cadera dolorosa
Authors' recommendations: Very low-quality evidence does not allow to draw conclusions on the comparative effectiveness between arthroscopic surgery and open surgery for femoro-acetabular impingement. Moderate-quality evidence (due to inaccuracy and bias risk) on hip arthroscopic surgical treatment compared with structured physical therapy for femoro-acetabular impingement suggests a mild improvement on quality of life at one-year follow up. Very low-quality evidence does not allow to draw conclusions on hip arthroscopy surgery for the treatment of labral lesions, hip dysplasia, synovial diseases, abductor muscle tear, ligamentum teres lesion, septic arthritis, chondral defects, acetabular retroversion, osteoid osteomas or trauma. No clinical practice guidelines mentioning this technology have been found. The United States insurance companies surveyed cover both arthroscopy and open surgery for specific cases of femoro-acetabular impingement; some insurance companies also cover these procedures for other indications. The United Kingdom health system covers arthroscopy for femoro-acetabular impingement. The rest of surveyed funders from Latin American and high-income countries do not mention its use. No economic assessments assessing this technology in the region have been found.
