Objective: To define the association between change in body mass index (BMI) and the incidence and progression of structural defects of hip osteoarthritis as assessed by radiography. Methods: We used data from 2 independent cohort studies: the Osteoarthritis Initiative (OAI) and the Cohort Hip and Cohort Knee (CHECK) study. Our exposure was change in BMI from baseline to 4–5 years’ follow-up. Our outcomes were the incidence and progression of structural defects of hip osteoarthritis as assessed using a modified Croft grade in OAI and the Kellgren/Lawrence grade in the CHECK study. To study incidence, we created incidence cohorts of hips without definite overall structural defects at baseline (i.e., grade
