AbstractThe knowledge about the hip joint space width which is formed between the head of femur and acetabulum is essential for radiological practice in identifying the pathologies of hip joint like osteoarthritis and in orthopaedic surgeries.
Aim:Determination of mean values of hip joint space width.
Materials and Methods:Normal plain radiographs of pelvis with bilateral hip joints – AP view of both males and females between the 20 to 50 years of age were used for study. A total of 200 x-rays (100 males and 100 females) were included in the study.
Inclusion criteria: a) Patients complaining of pain in hip, who had no joint pathology defined on the basis of radiological examination. b) Patients of age group 20-50 years.c)Patients without any deformity of hip joint. Exclusion criteria:a)Patients having history of pathologies like Osteoarthritis, Tuberculosis, Fractures around hip joint. b) Patients having history of Surgical intervention around this area.
