FIGURE 13.4. Three National Hockey League players were referred, each with a 2-week history of hip pain following an injury on the ice. Each case demonstrated magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) evidence of labral pathology (arrows). These cases were treated with 2 weeks of rest followed by a 2-week period of gradually resuming activities. Each of these athletes was able to return to competition and has continued to play for several seasons without needing surgery. (A) Coronal image of a left hip demonstrates a lateral labral tear (arrow). (B) Coronal image of a right hip demonstrates a lateral labral tear (arrow). (C) Sagittal image of a left hip demonstrates an anterior labral tear with associated paralabral cyst (arrow).
