[Deformity and arthrosis in slipped upper femoral epiphysis (author's transl)].

Abstract

X-rays of 104 slipped upper femoral epiphysis (without reduction of epiphysis and complications) showed pathological datas of the hip joints (ACM-angle, CE-angle, Hüftwert) in one third of the cases in the beginning and 60% until 12 years later. With higher degree of slip the arthrosis increase, but not the pathological datas of the hip joint. There is no dependence between deformity of the hip and arthrosis. Apparently the articular cartilage necrosis partially determine the development of arthrosis.
