Acetabular dysplasia and femoral anteversion are usually associated with one another. Subluxation in children is measured by the Migration Index and the Centre edge Angle. This page was last edited on 1 Aprilat The combination of the two techniques results in increased length of the femoral neck. That is usually valha journal article where the information was first stated.

Deformity of the femur will often cause a resultant deformity in the acetabulum, and a deformity of the acetabulum will cause a resultant deformity in valg femur. If you believe that this Physiopedia article is the primary source for the information you are refering to, you can use the button below to access a related citation statement.

A good example of a femoral varus osteotomy is the Nishio osteotomy. Intra-articular deformities of the hip are deformities of the femoral head at its connection to the femoral neck.

The approach is really two osteotomies: Articles lacking sources from December All articles lacking sources Infobox medical condition new All stub articles. Therefore, valgus osteotomy needs vaea translate laterally towards the outside to avoid developing a translation deformity.

The greater trochanter is then moved distally downward increasing tension on the hip varx and increasing abductor lever arm. Another example is a non-spherical femoral head can be treated by a Ganz femoral head reduction osteotomy FHRO. Magnetic resonance imaging MRI can be used to illustrate the soft tissues and assess impingement.


Your bones are your body’s framework. Acquired musculoskeletal deformities M20—M25, M95— There is a risk that the greater trochanter may lose both tension and lever arm, which can lead to a lurch or Trendelenburg gait. The center of rotation of angulation CORA is at the center of the femoral head. Measuremenst are then taken: CT can be used to determine the degree of femoral anteversion or retroversion.

What are coxa valga and coxa vara? Winged scapula Adhesive capsulitis Rotator cuff tear Subacromial bursitis. This is achieved by performing a valgus osteotomy, with the valgus position of the femoral neck improving the action of the gluteus muscles, normalising the femoral neck angle, increasing total limb length and improving the joint congruence.

The effect is to cixa the femoral neck. Coxa vara is often associated with other deformities, such as flexion and rotation. Due to the low incidence of coxa vara and even lower for coxa valga, there is little literature currently available.

Coxa Vara / Coxa Valga

Cubitus valgus Cubitus varus. Our approach is to perform the osteotomy distal down to the lesser trochanter to minimize tension on the psoas tendon.

The Wagner osteotomy is used to change the part of the femoral head that is articulating with the acetabulum. This results in further deformity, such as coxa breva shortening of the neck of the femur and collapse of the femoral head, resulting in an elliptical or saddle shape.

Macrocephaly Platybasia Craniodiaphyseal dysplasia Dolichocephaly Greig cephalopolysyndactyly syndrome Plagiocephaly Saddle nose. Coxa Vara Correction of coxa vara is a valgus osteotomy. Toggle navigation p Physiopedia.

Ashish Ranade et al also showed that a varus position of the neck is believed to prevent hip subluxation associated with femoral lengthening.


This content reflects information from various individuals and organizations and may offer alternative or opposing points of view. Femoral deformity can be secondary to acetabular dysplasia and vice versa. In most cases Physiopedia articles are a secondary source and so should not be used as references. Contents Editors Categories Share Cite. Instead, both deformities are caused by the same disease process.

Hip Evaluation Evaluation of the hip is important for developing treatment strategies. Correction of the deformity often requires correction in all three planes.

The greater trochanter is vapga, increasing abductor lever arm. The indication is when there is no need to change the congruity of the joint.

Coxa valga is a deformity of the hip where the angle formed between the head and neck of the femur and its shaft is increased, usually above degrees.

One example of coxa vara with ckxa dysplasia is in Congenital Femoral Deficiency Femoral deformities can also arise after treatment of hip dysplasia.

Pectus excavatum Pectus carinatum. Coxa valga and coxa vara are deformities of the hip. Treatment involves a pelvic osteotomy combined with varus osteotomy at the upper valgw. The more extreme and the more chronic a hip deformity, the more likely there are to be associated soft tissue contractures.

Coxa vara is as a varus deformity of the femoral neck. Congenital vaara vara results in a decrease in metaphyseal bone as a result of abnormal maturation and ossification of proximal femoral chondrocyte. Wrist drop Boutonniere deformity Swan neck deformity Mallet finger.
