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...
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...
The purpose of this study is to assess the performance and safety of the CaveoVasc® System for femoral vascular access and for prevention of bleeding from the femoral artery puncture site...
In this study, we will be comparing two approaches to the femoral block. The first or classical approach and one that is the most popular in our institution is used by combining ultrasound...
Although older children and high dislocations may be more likely to require a femoral shortening osteotomy, the ultimate decision about whether or not to shorten a given femur should depen...
The purpose of this study was to report (1) a different but specific pattern of impingement in hips involved with valgus slipped capital femoral epiphysis (valgus SCFE) and (2) the results of surgical...
Slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) demonstrates seasonal variation in certain latitudes but not others. Is such variation influenced by temperature differences, sunlight exposure and subsequent ...
Slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) in adolescence is associated with increased risk of future osteoarthritis (OA). The purpose of this study was to study clinical and radiographic risk factors f...
Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) post slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) may lead to degenerative changes on the hip. We have reviewed the current procedures in the literature, aiming to corre...
Slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) is not frequently encountered during routine practice and diagnosis and treatment are often delayed. It is important to understand symptoms and imaging feature...
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.
