The anterior centre-edge (VCA) angle quantifies the anterior cover of the femoral head, and angles of less than 20 degrees are considered abnormal. We have measured the VCA angles in hips without osteoarthritic changes. We took bilateral false-profile radiographs of nine female and 30 male cadavers without signs of osteoarthritis. The mean age at the time of death was 72 years (46 to 92). The mean VCA angle was 32.8 degrees (17.7 to 53.6). The SD was 7.9 degrees. Our findings suggest that the… CONTINUE READING
