Osteoarthrosis of the hip

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A series of 62 patients with arthrosis of the hip joint was compared with 328 randomly chosen patients from the same clinic. Most were over the age of 50, while about half were over 60. However, in many of them the onset of clinical symptoms could be traced back to a much younger age (in 6.5 to below the age of 30). Most of the patients were women (67.7%), which is close to the proportion of women in the control group (76.5%). This finding might reflect the greater number of female patients in our clinic. Finally, most of our patients with arthrosis of the hip (about 68%) were of European or American origin, while only 19.3% were born in Asia or Africa. The proportion of those of European or American origin was significantly different from the 52.4% of patients of European and American origin in the control group (p<0.01).
