2 Osteoarthritis is extremely common and many diff erent causes for it have been described. One such cause is abnormal morphology of the aff ected joint, the hip being a good example of this. For those joints with femo-roacetabular impingement (FAI) or developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH), a link with subsequent osteo-arthritis seems clear. However, far from being abnormal, these variants may be explained by evolution, certainly so for FAI, and may actually be normal rather than…

Prevalence of malformations of the hip joint and their relationship to sex, groin pain, and risk of osteoarthritis: a population-based survey.

In the study population, a deep acetabular socket and a pistol grip deformity were common radiographic findings and were associated with an increased risk of hip osteoarthritis.

Athletic activity in adolescence as an etiological factor in degenerative hip disease.

The condition was found to be more common in subjects who had been engaged in more active regimes and was also related statistically to a history of "growing pains", compared with the gross disturbance of adolescent epiphysiolysis or slipped epiphysis.

Prevalence of femoroacetabular impingement in Asian patients with osteoarthritis of the hip

The study has revealed that most hip OA cases were caused by developmental dysplasia of the hip, and only a few cases (0.6%) with FAI in Japan.

Developmental dysplasia of the hip

Treatment of developmental dysplasia of the hip depends on age at presentation and outcomes are much better when the child is treated early, particularly during the first six months of life.

The most frequent location for femoroacetabular impingement is the anterosuperior rim area and the most critical motion is internal rotation of the hip in 90 flexion.

Acetabular dysplasia and hip osteoarthritis in Britain and Japan.

There are marked differences in pelvic morphometry between Britain and Japan, and the acetabular dimensions of Japanese subjects are considerably shallower than those of their British counterparts of similar age and sex.

Hip morphology influences the pattern of damage to the acetabular cartilage: femoroacetabular impingement as a cause of early osteoarthritis of the hip.

It is hypothesized that both cam and pincer impingement lead to osteoarthritis of the hip and that both mechanisms result in different patterns of articular damage.

Genetic influences in the aetiology of femoroacetabular impingement: a sibling study.

Femoroacetabular impingement causes pain in the hip in young adults and may predispose to the development of osteoarthritis. Genetic factors are important in the aetiology of osteoarthritis of the

Human hip impingement morphology: an evolutionary explanation.

The evolutionary conflict between upright gait and the birth of a large-brained fetus is expressed in the female pelvis and hip, and can explain pincer impingement in a coxa profunda.

In a large number of subjects assessed by a single observer, this study confirms other previous reports that the relationship between acetabular dysplasia and risk of hip OA is negative.
