Labral reconstruction is becoming an important treatment modality for hips with nonsalvageable labra. Nonsalvageable labra can be present in cases of intrasubstance damage, revision surgery after debridement, labral calcification, and hypoplasia. Previous methods of reconstruction have been performed in an open manner and arthroscopically using ligamentum teres, iliotibial band, and gracilis autograft. We present an alternate method of arthroscopic labral reconstruction using capsular autograft. The technique uses readily available capsular tissue during arthroscopy with no donor-site morbidity. This technique may be valuable in appropriately selected patients with labral deficiency.
