  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to obtain information on the safety and performance of HipJack Balloon Spacer to access the central compartment of the hip and maintain intra-articular hip joint distraction during arthroscopy of the central compartment of the hip.

Condition Intervention
Hip Arthroscopy Device: HipJack Balloon Spacer

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Supportive Care
Official Title: Balloon Assisted Hip Arthroscopy - Clinical Evaluation of a New Tool for Hip Arthroscopy

Further study details as provided by Pivot Medical Inc.:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Ability to access the central compartment of the hip and maintain intra-articular hip joint distraction with the HipJack Balloon Spacer during hip arthroscopy. [ Time Frame: Treatment (Day 0) ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Reduction in external traction time. [ Time Frame: Treatment (Day 0) ]
  • Investigator-related adequacy of central compartment visualization with use of the investigational device. [ Time Frame: Treatment (Day 0) ]
  • Investigator-rated adequacy of maneuverability of arthroscopy tools with the investigational device inflated in the central compartment. [ Time Frame: Treatment (Day 0) ]
  • The occurrence of serious adverse events by 6-week follow-up rated by the investigator to be probably or definitely related to the investigational device. [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]

Enrollment: 30
Study Start Date: September 2011
Study Completion Date: April 2012
Primary Completion Date: March 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Device: HipJack Balloon Spacer
    Use of the HipJack Kit to maintain distraction of the joint during hip arthroscopy.
Detailed Description:
The HipJack Kit is intended to maintain distraction of the joint during hip arthroscopy. This study will evaluate the Kit in clinical sites outside of the United States.
