Coxa valga leads to acetabular dysplasia. CT can be used to determine the degree of femoral anteversion or retroversion. This article does not cite any sources.

Retrieved from ” https: Hip, Groin, or Buttock Problem. Developmental coxa vara is a rare condition with an incidence of 1 in clxa live births. Lateral translation occurs by lining up the blade plate along the femur.

Valgus angles greater cosa degrees put the patient at risk of hip coxz dislocation. Coxa vara is as a varus deformity of the femoral neck. In other projects Wikimedia Commons.

Deformities of the hip can be divided into coxa valga and coxa vara. In some cases, an osteotomy of the iliac wing of the pelvis is performed to shorten the requisite amount for muscle reattachment. At the Paley Institute, we offer the most technologically advanced treatment methods, with an emphasis on joint reconstruction and preservation over joint replacement. Therefore, when coxa vara is seen with hip dysplasia, it is not the cause of the dysplasia.


Pectus excavatum Pectus carinatum.

This will result in good stabilization of the hip. Premature epiphyseal closure is described as one of the ethiological factors of coxa vara.

When performing osteotomies of the hip joint, it is crucial to consider the surrounding soft tissues. The Wagner osteotomy is used to change the part of the femoral head that is articulating with the acetabulum. In this case study, the acetabulum is abnormal in coxa vara.

D ICD – The evaluation will include hip range of motion ROMassessment of hip impingement, rotation profile of the femur and tibia, hip flexion and abduction strength, and pain.

Retrieved from ” https: As a result of congenital coxa varathe inferior medial area of the femoral neck may be fragmented. A previous pelvic osteotomy had been performed B – Ganz relative neck lengthening and trochanteric transfer Intra-Articular Deformities Intra-articular deformities of the hip are deformities of the femoral head vvara its connection to the femoral neck. Because of this, consideration of the muscles of the hip and upper femur is crucial to avoid developing further complications.

The most serious ones with high and long term morbidity being osteonecrosis and coxa vara. This human musculoskeletal system article is a stub. If the angle is greater thanthis is referred to as coxa valga. The osteotomy allows the proximal femur to be turned inwards because it does not elevate the greater trochanter.


Measuremenst are then taken: National Athletic Trainers’ Association. The Nishio vaara at the base of the neck. The femoral osteotomy should be medially translated towards the inside to avoid a secondary translation deformity. Furthermore, because varus osteotomy shortens the femur this has an effect on the greater trochanter.

Patients with coxa vara often show:. Anteversion of the femur inward twisting can create coxa valga. As always, you should consult with your healthcare provider about your specific health needs.

Example of normal proximal femoral angles. To avoid this, we will transfer the greater trochanter at the same time as the osteotomy.

Instead, both deformities are caused by the same disease process. Ashish Ranade et al also showed that a varus position of the neck is believed to prevent hip subluxation associated with femoral lengthening.
