BACKGROUND Patients after Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease (LCPD) often develop pain, impaired ROM, abductor weakness, and progression of osteoarthritis (OA) in early adulthood. Based on intraoperative observations during surgical hip dislocation, we established an algorithm for more detailed characterization of the underlying pathomorphologies with a proposed joint-preserving surgical treatment. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES We asked if patients after LCPD treated with our algorithm experienced (1) reduced… CONTINUE READING
