Recently published data indicated that although women had a greater mean global and focal acetabular anteversion compared with men, the prevalence of focal cephalad retroversion in the 1 o’clock position was not significantly different between men and women.
Researchers retrospectively reviewed CT scans for acetabula morphologic features in 878 patients who had a mean age of 42.6 years and were without pelvis injuries. Records obtained from patient medical records included age, gender, ethnicity and BMI. Using an automated algorithm, researchers identified the acetabular rim, the pelvis’s frontal plane was normalized and version and coverage were calculated.
