Osteoarthritis : a consequence of evolution ? FEATURE HIP

  title={Osteoarthritis : a consequence of evolution ? FEATURE HIP},
  • 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… CONTINUE READING
