Predicting The Risk Of Osteoarthritis

Acetabular dysplasia is a developmental condition, often present at birth. It is marked by a shallow hip pocket and makes the hip unstable. In some extreme cases, it can make the hip prone to dislocation.// A new study reveals the condition acetabular dysplasia is a strong independent indicator for the development of osteoarthritis (OA) of the hip.

Osteoarthritis of the hip is one of the leading causes of disability among the elderly. In addition to severe acetabular dysplasisa, its development is associated with multiple factors, including genes, age, gender, hormones, and body mass index. Results of a recent study has shown that the condition acetabular dysplasia is a strong independent indicator for the development of osteoarthritis (OA) of the hip.

For the study researchers studied 835 seniors. Over a follow-up period averaging six years, participants were examined through radiographs for definite signs of hip OA. It was observed that those with acetabular dysplasia had about a four-times increased risk for OA of the hip and more women than men with acetabular dysplasia had severe hip OA.

Thus in conclusion researchers say acetabular dysplasia is a strong, independent indicator for the development of hip OA.
