What is the relationship between imaging-defined intra-articular features and cartilage defects in young adult football players?

      Introduction: While hip osteoarthritis is a disease of the whole synovial joint, cartilage defects are considered a hallmark feature. A high proportion of young adult football players have hip cartilage defects. However, the role that other intra-articular features play in the pathogenesis of cartilage defects in football players remains unknown. This study had two aims: 1) examine the relationship between imaging-defined intra-articular features (labral tears, bone marrow edema pattern, subchondral cysts, effusion-synovitis and ligamentum teres tears) and cartilage defects (presence and severity) in football players; 2) investigate if the relationship between imaging-defined intra-articular features and cartilage defects is stronger in football players with hip/groin pain
