Abstract: Studies have been carried out regarding the acetabular and femoral anteversion in patients with developmental dysplasia of hip. However, definitive criteria/measurements regarding the normal angle of acetabular anteversion in asymptomatic patients is lacking. In our study, angle of anteversion of the acetabulum was determined by use of computed tomography in 200 asymptomatic Indian adults. The overall normal anteversion of the acetabulum was found to be 16.43+6 0 (mean + standard deviation) with no significant sex related difference. Slight age related increase in the angle of acetabular anteversion was observed.
