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.

Inclusion Criteria

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

Exclusion Criteria

None
