The effects of trochanteric epiphyseodesis on growth of the proximal end of the femur following necrosis of the capital femoral epiphysis
SCFE is characterised by displacement of the capital femoral epiphysis
from the metaphysis through the physis.
KEY WORDS: Slipped capital femoral epiphysis
, Modified Dunn procedure, Pinning in situ, Open surgical dislocation, Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI).
21) In addition, a number of secondary causes of dysplasia exist, including neuromuscular diseases, slipped capital femoral epiphysis
, Perthes disease, trauma, or epiphyseal dysplasias.
One of the most common problems in young patients is a slipped capital femoral epiphysis
Emma, 13, suffered from slipped capital femoral epiphysis
Atypical and typical (idiopathic) slipped capital femoral epiphysis
Then follows a section on anatomic disorders, which covers disorders of the neck, scoliosis, kyphosis, other anatomic disorders of the spine, disorders of the upper extremity, developmental dysplasia of the hip, Legg-Calve-Perthes disease, slipped capital femoral epiphysis
, congenital coxa vara, disorders of the femur, disorders of the knee, disorders of the leg, disorders of the foot, and limb length discrepancy.
In children with slipped capital femoral epiphysis
(SCFE), posteromedioinferior subluxation of the proximal femoral epiphysis with respect to the metaphysis has been described as resembling a scoop of ice cream slipping from its cone (10,13) (Figure 14).
Some of the commonly encountered problems are depression, gall stones, sleep apnea, orthopedic problems such as slipped capital femoral epiphysis
in teenagers (the hip end of upper leg bone) and increased fractures, spine and feet problems, hypertension, and earlier onset of puberty in females and delayed genital maturation in males.
The potential side effects are many, including allergy, impaired glucose tolerance, hyperlipemia, slipped capital femoral epiphysis
, transient peripheral edema, scoliosis, and leukemia.
Patients should be observed for evidence of glucose intolerance, hypopituitarism, malignant transformation of skin lesions, hypothyroidism, slipped capital femoral epiphysis
, and intracranial hypertension.
The association of femoral retroversion with slipped capital femoral epiphysis
6, 7, 8) Intramedullary rigid nailing indicated for adults are associated with complication like premature closer of the greater trochanteric physis leading to coxa valga, avascular necrosis of the capital femoral epiphysis
, leg length discrepancy, etc.
