Summary of "Reliability of and Correlation Between Measurements of Acetabular Morphology."

The authors sought to determine the intra- and interrater reliability of contemporary measures of acetabular morphology among a group of hip surgeons and to determine the correlations between measures of acetabular morphology. On 2 separate occasions, 3 hip surgeons independently performed blinded evaluations of anteroposterior pelvic radiographs of 40 patients. The lateral center-edge angle, medial center-edge angle, acetabular arc, extrusion index, acetabular index, Sharp's angle, posterior wall sign, crossover sign, femoro-epiphyseal acetabular roof index, acetabular wall indexes, and delta angle were assessed. A linear mixed model was used for variance estimation, and kappa and intra-class correlation coefficients were assessed for reliability. Pearson correlation coefficients were calculated for all possible pairs of radiographic measures. The acetabular index had the greatest interrater agreement (0.90; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.84-0.93), whereas the lateral center-edge angle had the higher intrarater agreement (0.96; 95% CI, 0.92-0.98). The acetabular arc angle had the lowest interrater agreement (0.44; 95% CI, 0.29-0.57), and the Sharp's angle had the lowest intrarater agreement (0.66; 95% CI, 0.41-0.84). The posterior wall sign had an interrater agreement of 0.35 (95% CI, 0.11-0.54) and an intrarater agreement of 0.68 (95% CI, 0.49-0.86). The crossover sign had an interrater agreement of 0.66 (95% CI, 0.43-0.84) and an intrarater agreement of 0.85 (95% CI, 0.52-0.89). The acetabular index, lateral center-edge angle, and extrusion index presented with high coefficients of correlation. In addition, acetabular anteversion correlated with severity of dysplasia. Commonly used parameters such as the acetabular index, lateral center-edge angle, and extrusion index are reliable radiographic parameters to assess acetabular morphology. However, correlation between measures suggests that they may be redundant in quantifying acetabular morphology. [Orthopedics. 201x; xx(x):xx-xx.].

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Research using processes by which the reliability and relevance of a procedure for a specific purpose are established.

The statistical reproducibility of measurements (often in a clinical context), including the testing of instrumentation or techniques to obtain reproducible results. The concept includes reproducibility of physiological measurements, which may be used to develop rules to assess probability or prognosis, or response to a stimulus; reproducibility of occurrence of a condition; and reproducibility of experimental results.

Works consisting of research using processes by which the reliability and relevance of a procedure for a specific purpose are established.

Noninflammatory degenerative disease of the hip joint which usually appears in late middle or old age. It is characterized by growth or maturational disturbances in the femoral neck and head, as well as acetabular dysplasia. A dominant symptom is pain on weight-bearing or motion.

The science dealing with the correlation of the physical characteristics of a stimulus, e.g., frequency or intensity, with the response to the stimulus, in order to assess the psychologic factors involved in the relationship.
