Acetabular morphometry and prevalence of hip dysplasia in the South Asian population.
We carried out a cross-sectional study to measure the association of the seven acetabular parameters with pelvic morphometry and prevalence of hip dysplasia in our population. Convenience sampling was carried out and 250 consecutive Patients who came to AKUH for intravenous pyelogram and had no complaints in the region of the hip joint were enrolled in the study. Post-micturition standardized plain antero-posterior pelvic radiographs of 250 asymptomatic adults (500 hip joints) was studied. There were 136 males (54.4%) and 114 females (45.6%). Mean age of our study population was 38 years (15-78 years). The average center edge angle was 35.56.6degrees standard deviation (SD), acetabular angle was 37.764.37degrees, depth to width ratio was 0.314.6degrees, roof obliquity was 10.66.2degrees, extrusion index was 0.15.8, lateral subluxation 8.92.7 mm, and peak to edge distance 173.98 mm. There was significant influence (p
