In a population sample health survey, body mass, previous trauma and physical stress were studied for associations with coxarthrosis.
A sample of 8,000 persons representative of the Finnish population aged 30 or over was invited for examination, and 90 percent participated.
On the basis of a standardized clinical examination, a physician diagnosed coxarthrosis in 6 percent of the women and 4 percent of the men.
The prevalence rose with age.
In persons with a past traumatic lower-limb injury, the odds ratio of unilateral coxarthrosis was 2.1 and of bilateral coxarthrosis 1.5, as adjusted for sex, age and other determinants using logistic regression.
