Reference category is rheumatoid arthritis/inflammatory arthritis and P-values were obtained from univariate logistic regression models. Numbers in bold represents significant p-value <0.05. ADL, activities of daily living; AVN, avascular necrosis of bone; OA, osteoarthritis; RA, rheumatoid arthritis; THA, total hip arthroplasty.
