Intra-articular deformities of the hip are deformities of the femoral head at its connection to the femoral neck. Coxa Valga Correction of coxa valag is a varus osteotomy of the femur.

Valgus angles greater than degrees put the patient at risk of hip subluxation dislocation. Views Read Edit View history. For example, treatment for avascular necrosis can result in growth arrest of the upper femur.

That is usually the journal article where the information was first stated. Therefore, when coxa vara is seen with hip dysplasia, it is not the cause of the dysplasia. Vrije Universiteit Brussel Project.

Vaa deformity can be secondary to acetabular dysplasia and vice versa. Coxa valga and coxa vara are deformities of the hip. Genu valgum Genu varum Genu recurvatum Discoid meniscus Congenital patellar dislocation Congenital knee dislocation. Stiffness, Pain, Swelling in Joints 1: Premature epiphyseal closure is described as vaalga of the ethiological factors of coxa vara. MRI can be used to visualise the epiphyseal plate, which may be widened in coxa vara.

Instead, both deformities are caused by the same disease process.

Patients may also show femoral retroversion or decreased anteversion. In this case study, the acetabulum is abnormal in coxa vara. The main indication is improved congruity and reduction of joint forces when the femoral head is not spherical. The greater trochanter is then moved distally downward increasing tension on the hip abductors and increasing abductor lever arm.

Lateral translation occurs by lining up the blade plate along the femur. Paley and Feldman have extensive experience in treating a wide range of hip problems, with excellent results. The approach is really two osteotomies: Ten years after Nishio varus osteotomy. At the Paley Institute, our approach is to normalize the anatomy and muscle forces while preserving the original anatomic structures.

Ashish Ranade et al also showed that a varus position of the neck is believed to prevent hip subluxation associated with femoral lengthening. Congenital coxa vara results in a decrease in metaphyseal bone as a result of abnormal maturation and ossification of proximal femoral chondrocyte.

The shaft of the femur is not moved laterally, however, a major difference with the Morscher osteotomy. The blade plate is then secured into place. In some cases, an osteotomy of the iliac wing of the pelvis is performed to shorten the requisite amount for muscle reattachment.

Furthermore, the shape of the upper femur is affected by any imbalance of muscle forces around it. When refering to evidence in academic varaa, you should always try to reference the primary original source. Coxa valga is more common in women. One example is the deformity of valgx femoral head relative to the neck created by a slipped capital femoral epiphysis can be treated by an intra-articular reduction or osteotomy or an extra-articular reorientation osteotomy.

Pectus excavatum Pectus carinatum. Protrusio acetabuli Coxa valga Coxa vara. Among bone and joint problems are osteoporosis vaga bonesosteoarthritis degenerative arthritis and gout. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. The normal NSA of the femur is degrees.


Example of normal proximal femoral angles. In the case of acquired coxa vara from a fracture, the proximal femur and femoral neck need accurate reduction and rigid fixation to avoid potential serious complications.

Measuremenst are then taken: Coxa vara is often associated with other deformities, such as flexion and rotation. Arthropathies Congenital disorders of musculoskeletal system Musculoskeletal disease stubs Musculoskeletal system stubs.

Coxa vara, on the other hand, produces more amenable forces on the acetabulum.

AP radiographs in standing are taken, usually of both hips in a neutral position. The content on or accessible through Physiopedia is for informational purposes only.

The Wagner osteotomy is used to change the part of the femoral head that is articulating with the acetabulum. Prevention is always optimal, but when problems occur, treatment might involve weight-bearing exercise, dietary changes, exercise, medical treatments and possibly surgery.
