A significant correlation was observed between the degree of lumbar spine arthritis and 2 quantitative markers of cam morphology (alpha angle and anterior femoral head-neck offset) in a large osteological collection of cadaveric lumbar spine and femurs. Although this study does not prove causation, it does impart further insight into the “hip-spine syndrome” in nonarthritic hips with proximal femoral asphericity.
