|A 29-year-old female patient reports perineal hypoesthesia and dysesthesia on the operative side immediately following hip arthroscopy for treatment of a labral tear and femoroacetabular impingement. Which of the following operative techniques might have decreased the risk of this complication?|
- Labral repair A labral repair would not affect the risk of pudendal nerve palsy.
- Shorter traction time A shorter traction time can decrease the risk for injury to the pudendal nerve.
- Perineal post of <8 cm A perineal post of >8 mm may increase risk of palsy by distributing force on a smaller surface area.
- Extensile capsulotomy Performing an extensile capsulotomy would not affect the risk of pudendal nerve palsy.
