The report on “hockey groin syndrome” by Irshad et al
1in the October issue of Surgery was of great interest to us, concerning matters we have been working on for many years. We have, however, made some additional observations in these high-performing athletes, interpreted the pain syndrome in another way, and have quite a different approach in the operative treatment. Among our patients are top-level players in ice hockey, soccer, and tennis. All together, 11 athletes have been operated on. The surgical procedures have been performed on 2 different indications, depending on the findings in the differential diagnosis workup.
