To the Editor:
We read with interest the editorial by Gelber that appeared in the February issue of The American Journal of Medicine. The author presents a good overview of the effects and known risk factors of osteoarthritis, discussing the influence of obesity on hip osteoarthritis. We would like to add to this by reporting a finding from our recent review of the topic.
