Background & Aims:Normal values for Sharp’s angle (SA) and the center-edge angle (CEA) in Japanese areunestablished. We examined these radiographic parameters to identify their correlation with gender, age andspino-pelvic alignment and particularly the prevalence of acetabular dysplasia in healthy adults (middle-aged orolder) in Japan. M ethods:In 639 members of the general population in a mountain village in Japan,the SA andCEA were measured. Correlations with gender, age and the sacro-femoral-pubic angle(SFPA)were investigated.Results:A total of 562 subjects(mean age 65.7 years;range,40-90 years)met the study criteria. The mean SA andCEA on both sides in women were larger and smaller than in men,respectively. An association was found betweenthe SA and age in both genders. Acetabular dysplasia,based on the SA and/or CEA,was more prevalent in womenthan in men and on the right side than on the left. The SFPA was associated with age and the SA in both gendersbut almost never with CEA. Conclusions:There were gender-associated and right-left differences in the prevalenceof acetabular dysplasia. The degree of pelvic retroversion was associated with age but almost never with the CEA.
