A hip labral tear may cause immediate symptoms or may not bother you, even while it sets the stage for later joint problems. An injured labrum loses some of its ability to protect and cushion the cartilage lining the socket beneath it. A roughened edge may begin to scrape against cartilage on the ball of the hip joint, leading to osteoarthritis.

What is image-guided stereotactic surgery?
Johns Hopkins Medicine answeredStereotaxy is the use of advanced computers to detect a brain tumor and create a three-dimensional image of it. Stereotactic surgery, also called surgical navigation, enables the neurosurgeon to precisely map the location of the tumor and determine the most effective way to remove it. It enables the neurosurgeon to see the brain during surgery to remove as much of the tumor as possible without damaging vital areas.
Stereotactic surgery is especially useful for tumors located deep in the brain.
What are examples of lacerations?
Bite marks are lacerations if the skin is broken. An injury where skin is torn, like a picked scab, is also a laceration. (This answer provided for NATA by the Weber State University Athletic Training Education Program.)
