Coxa valga describes a deformity of the hip where there is an increased angle between the femoral When the angle is vara. Deformities of the hip can be divided into coxa valga and coxa vara. Coxa valga is a deformity due to an increase in the angle between the head and neck of the. Coxa valga is increased in femoral neck-shaft angle tp more than degrees. Like coxa vara, coxa valga could be congenital or acquired.

Lateral translation cxoa by lining up the blade plate along the femur. Signs to look out for are as follows:. Intramembranous bone is without physes and grows and then stops as controlled by genetic script.

The normal NSA of the femur is degrees. Coxa vara, on the other hand, produces more amenable forces on the acetabulum. As a result of valgs coxa varathe inferior medial area of the femoral neck may be fragmented. Paley and Feldman have extensive experience in treating a wide range of hip problems, with excellent results. If the differences are the same, there is no trochanteric overgrowth; if they are different, then trochanteric overgrowth is present.

The acetabulum is the socket-shaped surface of the pelvis where the femoral head sits. Clinically, the condition presents itself as an abnormal, but painless gait pattern. This article about a disease of musculoskeletal and connective tissue is a stub. Cubitus valgus Cubitus cox. Varus derotation osteotomy and angled blade-plate fixation is quite effective.


The femoral neck length is increased Morscher Osteotomy The Morscher osteotomy does not change the orientation of the femoral head in the acetabulum and therefore the congruity of the hip joint stays the same. We developed a method called fixator-assisted nailing in which the deformity is first stabilized with an external fixator, and then with internal fixation. There is a risk that the greater trochanter may lose both tension and lever arm, which can lead to a lurch or Trendelenburg gait.

Using the x-rays, the joint orientation angles of the hip are measured. Coxa vara is often associated with other deformities, such as flexion and rotation. Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources.

Testicles lie medial to thigh. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Subluxation in children is measured by the Migration Index and the Centre edge Angle. This is achieved by performing a valgus osteotomy, with the valgus position of the femoral neck improving the action of the gluteus muscles, normalising the femoral neck angle, increasing total limb length and improving the joint congruence.

Developmental Coxa Vara

Each of these approaches has the same underlying goal: Shoulder is proximal and elbow is distal. The objective of medical interventions is to restore the neck-shaft angle and realigning the epiphysial plate to decrease shear forces and promote ossification of the femoral neck defect. Ten years after Nishio varus osteotomy The femoral osteotomy should be medially translated towards the inside to avoid a secondary translation deformity. This results in further deformity, such as coxa breva shortening of the neck of the femur and collapse of the femoral head, resulting in an elliptical or saddle shape.

Deformity of the femur will often cause a resultant deformity in the acetabulum, and a deformity of the acetabulum will cause a resultant deformity in the femur.

The combination of the two techniques results in increased length of the femoral neck. A – Congenital vars femur with coxa vara and overgrown trochanter.
