It should not be confused with Perthes lesion of the shoulder. Traditionally arthrography performed under general anesthesia with conventional fluoroscopy is nis to assess congruency between the femoral head and the acetabulum in a variety of positions 3. Osteonecrosis generally occurs secondary to abnormal or damaged blood supply to the femoral epiphysis, leading to fragmentation, bone loss, and eventual structural collapse of the femoral head.

Case 7 Case 7. The presence of metaphyseal involvement not only increases the likelihood of femoral neck deformity but also make early physeal closure with resulting leg length disparity more likely.

Unable to process the form. The younger the age at the time of presentation, the more benign disease course is expected and also for same age, the prognosis is better in boys than girls due to less maturity 5,8.

Case 2 Case 2. Loading Stack – 0 images remaining. Presentation is typically at a younger age than slipped upper femoral epiphysis with peak presentation at years, but confidence intervals are as wide as years 8. Perthes disease is relatively uncommon and in Western populations has an incidence approaching 5 to Case 19 Case Case 5 Case 5.


Additionally, tongues of cartilage sometimes extend inferolaterally into the femoral neck, creating lucencies, which must be distinguished from infection or neoplastic lesions 4.

Treatment in Perthes disease is largely related to symptom control, particularly in the early phase of the disease.

Case 12 Case The aim of therapy is to try and maintain good femoroacetabular contact and a round femoral head. Developmental dysplasia of hip Developmental dysplasia of hip. Eventually, the femoral head begins to fragment stage 2with subchondral lucency crescent sign and redistribution of weight-bearing stresses leading to thickening of some trabeculae which become more prominent.

The best initial test for the prrthes of Perthes is a pelvic radiograph. Case 8 Case 8.

Prognosis is also influenced by the percentage of femoral pertjes involvement and degree of primary deformity of the femoral head and the secondary osteoarthritic changes that ensue. Log in Sign up. Case 6 Case 6. Case 16 Case
