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.
All patients with radiographic and clinical diagnosis of hip pathologies will be included.
