Life expectancy has increased and elderly people have the desire to live an active lifestyle with participation in sports. Hip arthroscopy has not yet been established as standard treatment in this group of patients. The purpose of this study is to assess the outcomes after hip arthroscopy for FAI in patients aged over 50, as well as to report the factors that can lead to conversion to a hip replacement.
