Brief Summary:
Femoroacetabular hip impingement syndrome is a newly recognized cause of early arthritis of the hip. In this condition a variation in the shape of the upper thigh bone causes it to repeatedly come in contact with the hip socket leading to cartilage damage and arthritis. The purpose of this study is to investigate whether patients without hip pain have variations at the hip joint such as those seen in hip impingement syndrome.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Femoroacetabular Hip Impingement Syndrome Radiation: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

Detailed Description:
Participation in this study will involve coming to the hospital after regular work hours for an MRI of the hip joints. Arrangements will be made to cover the cost of parking on the day of your MRI. Prior to your MRI, a physician will check how your hip moves. The MRI will take approximately 20 minutes during which you will have to lie still in a closed space. You will receive a letter which can be forwarded to your family doctor if your MRI has any abnormal findings including signs of hip impingement.

Study Type : Observational
Actual Enrollment : 200 participants
Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Prevalence of Femoroacetabular Impingement in Asymptomatic Patients
Actual Study Start Date : August 1, 2007
Actual Primary Completion Date : February 2017
Actual Study Completion Date : February 13, 2017

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Asymptomatic patients
Asymptomatic, healthy patients (without hip pain or prior hip disease) will be recruited. Patients will undergo a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the hip joints to evaluate for the prevalence of femoroacetabular impingement (FAI).
Radiation: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
Participation in this study will involve patients coming to the hospital after regular work hours for an MRI of the hip joints.



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Prevalence of femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) [ Time Frame: Pre-operative ]
    Prevalence of femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), a newly recognized cause of early arthritis of the hip, will be investigated by means of hip MRI to evaluate for abnormal morphology of the anterior head-neck junction of the femur.
