Point prevalence of Hip Symptoms, Radiographic, And Symptomatic OA at Five Time Points: The Johnston County Osteoarthritis Project, 1991-2018

Nelson, A.E., et al.; Osteoarthritis and Cartilage Open

The objective of the study was to describe the point prevalence of hip symptoms, radiographic hip osteoarthritis (rHOA), severe rHOA, and symptomatic rHOA (sxHOA) at five time points in the longitudinal, population-based Johnston County Osteoarthritis Project (JoCoOA). Standardized supine pelvis radiographs from 3068 JoCoOA participants who attended up to five study visits (1991-2018) were read by a single, expert musculoskeletal radiologist with high reliability. Results at the most recent follow-up (2017-2018) showed the point prevalence of hip symptoms, rHOA, severe rHOA, and sxHOA were 30%, 53%, 9%, and 15%, respectively. In addition, results showed RHOA and severe rHOA were most prevalent in those 75+ years, women were more likely than men to have hip symptoms and sxHOA, and no consistent trends were noted by race or BMI in this cohort.
