VAN ZYL, Allan A. Misdiagnosis of hip pain could lead to unnecessary spinal surgery. SA orthop. j. [online]. 2010, vol.9, n.4, pp.54-57. ISSN 2309-8309.

Osteoarthritis of the hip occurs in 10-30% of adults and is especially common in the elderly. Twenty-one per cent of people over the age of 65% are also shown to have degenerative spinal stenosis. It thus follows that patients with osteoarthritis of the hip could have a concomitant degree of spinal stenosis.
