Brief Summary

Hip pathologies such as development dysplasia of the hip, femoracetabular impingement, profunda and protusia can result in hip pathomorphologies that lead to early arthritis.

  • The primary objective of the study is to find the gene(s) responsible for causing hip pathologies.
  • The secondary objective of the study is to determine the mode of genetic transmission of the pathology.
