Slipped capital femoral epiphysis represents approximately 10.8 cases per 100,000 children. The primary source for the blood supply of the head of the femur is the deep branch of the media...
The study is a randomized controlled trial to evaluate the social capital intervention versus a general health promotion intervention (Health for Life; H4L) among groups of Young black men...
The purpose of this study is to assess the reoperation rate of fractures that have occurred at the neck of the femur that are treated with the CONQUEST FN Femoral Neck Fracture System. The...
Patients with a trans-femoral amputation who experienced problems, complications pain due to the ischial weight bearing and discomfort with conventional socket prosthesis will be proposed ...
Total hip replacement surgery is considered to be a very successful surgical procedure for the treatment of degenerative joint disease. The purpose of the study is to evaluate a large siz...
Slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) is a common disorder in adolescent for which no consensus exists regarding management. The aim of the present study was to analyze gait modifications following...
Femoral morphology may influence the etiology of slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE). We investigated whether radiographic parameters of femoral head-neck morphology are associated with a subsequ...
Prophylactic pinning of the asymptomatic and normal-appearing contralateral hip in patients with unilateral slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) remains controversial. Understanding the minimal 10...
Increased intracapsular hip pressure is thought to be one of the possible etiologies of femoral head avascular necrosis after intra-articular proximal femoral fractures or acute slipped capital femora...
Slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) is a well-characterized disorder of the hip seen in adolescent patients. It is characterized by deformity secondary to failure through the proximal femoral gro...
A developmental deformity in which the metaphysis of the FEMUR moves proximally and anteriorly away from FEMUR HEAD (epiphysis) at the upper GROWTH PLATE. It is most common in male adolescents and is associated with a greater risk of early OSTEOARTHRITIS of the hip.
A complete or partial separation of the EPIPHYSES from the DIAPHYSES.
A groin hernia occurring inferior to the inguinal ligament and medial to the FEMORAL VEIN and FEMORAL ARTERY. The femoral hernia sac has a small neck but may enlarge considerably when it enters the subcutaneous tissue of the thigh. It is caused by defects in the ABDOMINAL WALL.
Disease involving the femoral nerve. The femoral nerve may be injured by ISCHEMIA (e.g., in association with DIABETIC NEUROPATHIES), nerve compression, trauma, COLLAGEN DISEASES, and other disease processes. Clinical features include MUSCLE WEAKNESS or PARALYSIS of hip flexion and knee extension, ATROPHY of the QUADRICEPS MUSCLE, reduced or absent patellar reflex, and impaired sensation over the anterior and medial thigh.
Hip deformity in which the femoral neck leans forward resulting in a decrease in the angle between femoral neck and its shaft. It may be congenital often syndromic, acquired, or developmental.
