Potter was plagued from early adulthood with psoriatic arthropathy, a rare form of arthritis.
To examine the prevalence of hip arthropathy, the researchers performed a case-control study of the 10,162 patients with hemophilia A or B in the Universal Data Collection Database.
When those do not provide lasting pain relief, the primary interventional treatment for facet arthropathy is radiofrequency neurotomy.
The researchers suggest reconsidering the guidelines for treating facet arthropathy.
Studies have suggested that nonhemophilic arthropathy in children results in worse hip destruction than if the joint involvement begins in adulthood.
In the logistic regression analysis, ankle and knee arthropathy were very strong independent predictors of hip involvement, Kelly said.

The following factors also were significantly associated with hip arthropathy:
Whilst patellofemoral pain is one of the most common musculoskeletal disorders presenting to orthopaedic clinics, sports clinics, and general practices, factors contributing to its development in the absence of a defined arthropathy, such as osteoarthritis (OA), are unclear.
A longitudinal analysis to examine the temporal relationships between these variables and hip arthropathy is under way and may further clarify these associations, Kelly said.
