Abstracts from the 2018 OARSI World Congress on Osteoarthritis

Purpose: Variation in hip shape, as measured by statistical shapemodelling (SSM), is associated with prevalent hip osteoarthritis(OA) and progression of hip OA. However, little is known of thebiological processes which underlie hip shape. We aimed to identify these by studying the genetic architecture of DXA-derivedhip shape, using genome wide association study (GWAS) meta-analysis...
