The Ganz osteotomy does not actually lengthen the femur, as the Morscher and Wagner approaches do.

The Wagner osteotomy is used to change the part of the femoral head that is articulating with the acetabulum.

Arthrogryposis Larsen syndrome Rapadilino syndrome.

Coxa Valga Correction of coxa valga is a varus osteotomy of the femur. X-rays provide most of the information needed for diagnosis. For more information, see Perthes Disease. One example of coxa vara with hip dysplasia is in Congenital Femoral Deficiency.

Cubitus valgus Cubitus varus. The main indication is improved congruity and reduction of joint forces when the femoral head is not spherical. Because of this, consideration of the muscles of the hip and upper femur is crucial to avoid developing further complications. Example of normal proximal femoral angles.

There are three approaches to correction of trochanteric overgrowth, each with separate indications:.

Acetabular dysplasia and femoral anteversion are usually associated with one another. The combination of the two techniques results in increased length of the femoral neck.


Subluxation in children is measured by the Migration Index and the Centre edge Angle. The long axis of the elliptical femoral head is now horizontal. Intra-articular and extra-articular surgical procedures can be performed to correct intra-articular deformities. Macrocephaly Platybasia Craniodiaphyseal dysplasia Dolichocephaly Greig cephalopolysyndactyly syndrome Plagiocephaly Saddle cara.

Luxating patella Chondromalacia patellae Patella baja Patella alta. Correction of the deformity often requires correction in all three planes.

Furthermore, because varus osteotomy shortens the femur this has an effect on the greater trochanter. If the angle is greater thanthis is referred to as coxa valga. Treatment involves a pelvic osteotomy combined with varus osteotomy at the upper femur. Coxa valga vaar more common in women.

Developmental Coxa Vara – Pediatrics – Orthobullets

The acetabulum is the socket-shaped surface of the pelvis where the femoral head sits. The more extreme and the more chronic a hip deformity, the more likely coax are to be associated soft tissue contractures.

If the angle is less than degrees, this is considered to be coxa vara.

Deformity of the hip joint may be due to femoral deformity and acetabular dysplasia. As a result of congenital coxa varathe vzra medial area of the femoral neck may be fragmented. Deformities of the hip can be divided into coxa valga and coxa vara. Articles lacking sources from December All articles lacking sources Infobox medical condition new All stub articles.

Next, a greater trochanteric osteotomy is performed to at the same angle and shifted distally downward and laterally to the outside.

Anteversion of the femur inward twisting can create coxa valga. Coxa vara is usually indicated when the angle is less than degrees. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. You can help Wikipedia by expanding it.

Prevention is always optimal, but when problems occur, treatment might involve weight-bearing exercise, dietary changes, exercise, medical treatments and possibly surgery. Furthermore, the shape of the upper femur is affected by any imbalance of muscle forces around it. Each of these approaches has the same underlying goal: Intra-articular deformities of the hip are deformities of the femoral head at its connection to the femoral neck.

For more information, see Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis. The content on or accessible through Physiopedia is for informational purposes only. Coxa vara is as a varus deformity of the femoral neck. What are coxa valga and coxa vara?

Congenital coxa vara results in a decrease in metaphyseal bone as a result of abnormal maturation and ossification of proximal femoral chondrocyte. Winged scapula Adhesive capsulitis Rotator cuff tear Subacromial bursitis. Madelung’s deformity Clinodactyly Oligodactyly Polydactyly. Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources. The external fixator pins are placed outside the path of the planned nail.

The differential diagnosis includes neuromuscular disorders i. Femoral deformity and acetabular dysplasia are often associated with each other. This content reflects information from various individuals and organizations and may offer alternative or opposing points of view.
