A 25 year young man sustained fracture dislocation of hip joint before 15 days. It was reduced in emergency & traction was given. Post reduction x-ray as well as CT scan showed a bony piece lodged inside the hip that will have hampered movements of patient.

To remove this osteochondral loose piece, traditional technique would have been to open the hip joint, dislocate it & remove the fragment. This open surgery could have further jeopardize blood supply to head of femur. A fragment of approximately 1.5cm x 1 cm was removed with 2 puncture holes with arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery. Special instruments like 70* arthroscope, shaver and long needles were used to do surgery. Patient had an uneventful recovery & was allowed to take weight with support from 3rd day.
