Background and purpose: Ôsteoarthrisis is the most common disease of mobile and axial joints, its etiology is not clearly known yet. Biomechanical and biological theories are suggested for its etiology. The relationship between proximal femoral anatomy and osteoarthrisis of the hip is under controversy.
Materials and methods : 73 individuals, 34 with osteoarthrisis and 39 control cases were included in the study. Both groups were matched for age, occupation and weight. Then neck-shaft angle in both groups was measured.
Results : Mean neck-shaft angle was 133o, which did not show statistically significant difference from that of the control.
Çonclusion : Âa a results of expensive joint exchange in osteoarthrisis patients and its side effects, measurement of Neck-shaft angle in Ïranian race is a necessity.
