Endothelial nitric oxide synthase gene polymorphism is associated with Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease.


The aim of this study was to assess the association of 27-bp variable number tandem repeat (VNTR) polymorphism in intron 4 and G894T polymorphism in exon 7 of the endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) gene with Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease (LCPD), and to provide a scientific basis for further research into the pathogenic mechanism. A total of 80 patients… (More)
