A developmental condition of hip instability.

Based on this study’s results, Dr. Reijman concludes that acetabular dysplasia, at any measurable degree or depth, is a solid, independent indicator for the development of OA of the hip. Furthermore, he notes, the associations between acetabular dysplasia and incident radiographic OA of the hip may even be underestimated because of the fairly high mean age of the analysis population. In other words, we assume that in a younger population the association between acetabular OA and dysplasia could be even higher. .. A shallow hip socket predicts osteoarthritis of the hip Long-term study suggests moderate acetabular dysplasia, a developmental condition of hip instability, as an independent risk factor for the condition. Osteoarthritis of the hip is among the leading causes of disability among elderly men and women.Tita, M.D., Ph.D., Russell S. Miller, M.D., Alan M. Peaceman, M.D., David S. McKenna, M.D., Edward K.S.
