Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Cam femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is currently treated by resecting the femoral cam lesion. Some surgeons advocate additional anterosuperior acetabular rim resection. However, the exact acetabular contribution to cam-FAI has yet to be described. Using 3D-CT analysis, we set out to quantify the acetabular rim shape and orientation in this condition, and to determine the roles of these factors in cam-FAI. The acetabula of twenty consecutive cam hips (defined by α-angle of Notzli greater than 55° on plain radiographs) undergoing image based navigated surgery. These were compared with twenty normal hips (defined as disease free sockets with a normal femoral head-neck junction) obtained from a CT colonoscopy database.
