Abstract

In a study of elderly women without signs of OA, the morphometry of impingement and asphericity was more common in the hips of white women compared with Chinese women. Our findings suggest that whites may be at higher risk of hip OA than Chinese because of morphologic findings that predispose whites to femoroacetabular impingement.
