The aim of this study was to compare the clinical and radiological symptoms in patients with osteoarthritis of the hip, scheduled for arthroplasty surgery. The study group consisted of forty patients from the arthroplasty department. Patients were examined the day before surgery. The subject of the study was to establish patients functional status. Apart from the physical examination, radiographs showing degenerative changes in the joint were reviewed. These studies were compiled together to give statistical results of the test group. The results showed that when assessing a radiograph of a patient with coxarthrosis, we can not conclude as to the specific clinical features, represented by the patient. We are able to conclude only about the general state of the person’s functional status.
