Апстракт:
Objective: The aim was to examine the correlation between overweight and osteoarthritis (OA) of the hip and knee in the population of Banjaluka region. Material and Methods: Retrospective, population-based study included 865 patients (mean age 59,08) treated for simptomatic or radiographic OA from January, 2005. till Septembar, 2010. We assessed the percentage of overweight patients (as defined by body mass index (BMI) of greater than or equal to 30 kg/m2) who had OA. Results: From 865 participants, 295 (34,1%) had OA of hip (199 or 67,46% female and 96 or 32,24% male). OA of the knee was found in 570 (65,9%) participants (376 or 65,96% female and 194 or 34,04% male).BMI >30 was found in 95(30,6%) patients with hip OA (68,42% female and 31,58% male) and in 221(69,94%) patients with OA of the knee (72,4% female and 27,6% male). OA of the knee was significantly associated with overweight (p>0,01). Conclusion: Overweight is significantly associated with OA of the knee (p>0, 01). Obesity increases the risk of developing hip OA, though the correlation is not as strong as it is with knee OA (p>0,05).
