Association of hip pain with radiographic evidence of hip osteoarthritis: diagnostic test study

Methods In this diagnostic test study, pelvic radiographs were assessed for hip osteoarthritis in two cohorts: the Framingham Osteoarthritis Study (community of Framingham, Massachusetts) and the Osteoarthritis Initiative (a multicenter longitudinal cohort study of osteoarthritis in the United States). Using visual representation of the hip joint, participants reported whether they had hip pain on most days and the location of the pain: anterior, groin, lateral, buttocks, or low back. In the Framingham study, participants with hip pain were also examined for hip pain with internal rotation. The authors analysed the agreement between radiographic hip osteoarthritis and hip pain, and for those with hip pain suggestive of hip osteoarthritis they calculated the sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, and negative predictive value of radiographs as the diagnostic test.

Hip pain and radiographic signs of osteoarthritis

Hip pain is common, particularly among adults older than 50 years, and intuitively linked to osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis refers to a heterogeneous group of joint disorders characterised by progressive destruction of cartilage. Patients present with activity related joint pain and stiffness.1 2 Osteoarthritis can be classified as primary or secondary, but in practice and research the diagnosis is more often categorised as radiographic osteoarthritis, self reported osteoarthritis, or clinical (symptomatic) osteoarthritis. These designations have substantially different prevalences and incidences.2 3 4 Since osteoarthritis is a leading cause of pain and disability, we clearly need a better understanding of its epidemiology, and we need better methods for identifying patients at risk of the debilitating consequences of progressive limitations to daily life caused by symptomatic disease.1 2 5 6
