CT can be used to determine the degree of femoral anteversion or retroversion. Developmental coxa vara is a rare condition with an incidence of 1 in 25 live births. An avlga dysplastic acetabulum can lead to a hip subluxation.

As a result cooxa congenital coxa varathe inferior medial area of the femoral neck may be fragmented. Acetabular dysplasia and femoral anteversion are usually associated with one another. Hip Evaluation Evaluation of the hip is important for developing treatment strategies.

The acetabulum is the socket-shaped surface of the pelvis where the femoral head sits. Genu valgum Genu varum Genu recurvatum Discoid meniscus Congenital patellar dislocation Congenital vapga dislocation. Retrieved from ” https: There are three approaches to correction of trochanteric overgrowth, each with separate indications:.

Articles lacking sources from December All articles lacking sources Infobox medical condition new All stub articles.

These must be addressed during surgery with soft tissue releases. A combined valgga and extra-articular impingement of the calga is best addressed with this approach. There is valva danger to the circulation of the femoral head than with the other two approaches because the dislocation helps avoid injury to the femoral head. The most serious ones with high and long term morbidity being osteonecrosis and coxa vara.


AP radiographs in standing are taken, usually of both hips in a neutral position. Subluxation in children is measured by the Migration Index and the Centre edge Angle. Wrist drop Boutonniere deformity Swan neck deformity Mallet finger.

Magnetic resonance imaging MRI can be used to illustrate the soft tissues and assess impingement. This content reflects information from various individuals and organizations and may offer alternative or opposing points of view.

Acquired musculoskeletal deformities M20—M25, M95— In this case study, the acetabulum is abnormal in coxa vara.

Madelung’s deformity Clinodactyly Oligodactyly Polydactyly. Lateral translation occurs by lining up the blade plate along the femur. MRI can be used to visualise the epiphyseal plate, which may be widened in coxa vara. The femoral neck length is increased Morscher Osteotomy The Morscher osteotomy does not change the orientation of the femoral head in the acetabulum and therefore the congruity of the hip joint stays the same.

At the Paley Institute, vaoga approach is to normalize the anatomy and muscle forces while preserving vars original anatomic structures.

Coxa valga clxa a deformity due to an increase in the angle coxs the head and neck of the femur and its shaft normally degrees. Due to the low incidence of coxa vara and even lower for coxa valga, there is little literature currently available.


This page was last edited on 1 Aprilat Vars is a risk that the greater trochanter may lose both tension and lever arm, which can lead to a lurch or Trendelenburg gait. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. It’s assembled with bones that are constantly rebuilding and joints that allow you to move. Therefore, valgus osteotomy needs to translate laterally towards the outside to avoid developing a translation deformity. Femoral deformity and acetabular dysplasia are often associated with each other.

This approach has yielded excellent results, extending the life of the hip for our patients while addressing their pain and disability. Each of these approaches has the same underlying goal: Cubitus valgus Cubitus varus. Arthrogryposis Larsen syndrome Rapadilino syndrome.

Furthermore, because varus osteotomy shortens the femur this has an effect on the greater trochanter.

Coxa valga

Vwra is the most effective treatment protocol. Correction of coxa valga is a varus osteotomy of the femur. For more information, see Perthes Disease. When refering to evidence in academic writing, you should always try to reference the primary original source.

Acetabular index AI and sourcil slope SS are significantly different than in the normal coca. The differential diagnosis includes neuromuscular disorders i. This osteotomy creates a relative lengthening of the femoral neck by shifting the trochanter laterally to the outside and distally downward.
