Özet

Hip arthroscopy was first described in 1931 by Burman, and in recent years the applications have extended to labral surgery, osteochondroplasty, and a variety of other procedures. Hip arthroscopy may also be employed to extract loose or foreign bodies from the hip, and may be associated with more rapid recovery than an open procedure. We present a case of arthroscopic bullet removal from the hip in a 24-year-old man.
