OBJECTIVE. The causes of Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease are largely unknown, but this pediatric disease seems to result from interruption of the blood supply to the proximal femur and is considered a vascular disease. Because maternal smoking during pregnancy influences fetal development and is associated with cardiovascular diseases in offspring, we hypothesized that this exposure is a risk for Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease and also investigated other markers of impaired fetal development and early… Expand
Risk factors during pregnancy and delivery for the development of Perthes’ disease, a nationwide Swedish study of 2.1 million individuals
TLDR
There is a correlation between breech birth and development of Perthes’ disease and there is also correlation to suboptimal birth characteristics. Expand
Legg-Calvé-Perthes Disease and Risks for Cardiovascular Diseases and Blood Diseases
TLDR
The results are consistent with the hypothesis that an insufficient blood supply to the femoral head, attributable to vascular pathologic conditions, is involved in the pathogenesis of LCPD. Expand
Influence of passive smoking on the onset of Legg-Calvè-Perthes disease: a systematic review and meta-analysis
The relationship between passive smoking and the onset of Legg-Calvè-Perthes disease is still controversial. Therefore, we conducted the study to systematically evaluate and analyze the relationship.Expand
A case control study to determine the association between Perthes' disease and the recalled use of tobacco during pregnancy, and biological markers of current tobacco smoke exposure
TLDR
An association exists between tobacco smoke exposure and Perthes' disease but the authors remain unable to disentangle the association with socioeconomic deprivation. Expand
Environmental Tobacco and Wood Smoke Increase the Risk of Legg-Calvé-Perthes Disease
TLDR
This study provides further evidence that environmental tobacco smoke is associated with an increased risk of Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease and exposure to wood smoke also appears to be a risk factor. Expand
The Epidemiology and Demographics of Legg-Calvé-Perthes' Disease
TLDR
LCPD can be associated with abnormalities in the coagulation cascade, including an increase in factor V Leiden mutation, low levels of protein C and/or S, and decreased antithrombin activity, and reduced levels of urinary glycosaminoglycans in the active phases of the disorder. Expand
The Declining Incidence of Legg-Calve-Perthes’ Disease in Northern Ireland: An Epidemiological Study
TLDR
The number of new cases of LCPD is decreasing over time and the epidemiological data are unchanged between 2 cohorts over a 15-year period, and this therefore supports a change within the patients' environment relating to this decline. Expand
Abnormalities of Vascular Structure and Function in Children With Perthes Disease
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Perthes disease is a childhood precipitant to osteoarthritis of the hip, for which the etiology and mechanism are unknown. There is mounting evidence to suggest a vascularExpand
Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease in the UK: geographic and temporal trends in incidence reflecting differences in degree of deprivation in childhood.
TLDR
The declining incidence, along with the geographic variation, suggests that a major etiologic determinant in Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease is environmental and closely linked to childhood deprivation. Expand
Pregnancy with Legg Calve Perthes' Disease - A Case Report
TLDR
A 25yrs old primigravid lady was admitted at 36+wks pregnancy with Gestational Diabetes Mellitus with H/O Bronchial asthma with old Perthes’ Disease, who had pain in left hip which increases on movement and restricted movement as pregnancy advances. Expand

Maternal smoking and fetal growth characteristics in different periods of pregnancy: the generation R study.
TLDR
It is concluded that maternal smoking during pregnancy is associated with reduced growth in fetal head circumference, abdominal circumference, and femur length, and the larger effect on Femur length suggests that smoking duringregnancy affects primarily peripheral tissues. Expand
The impact of maternal smoking on fetal and infant growth.
TLDR
The results indicated a beneficial effect of reduction of smoking upon third trimester growth, and that the decision to reduce smoking in mid-pregnancy may be influenced by early fetal size. Expand
Smoking and socio-economic status in the etiology and severity of Legg–Calvé–Perthes' disease
TLDR
The presence of second-hand smoke seems to be a significant risk factor in the development of Legg–Calvé–Perthes disease and may represent the ‘unknown industrial factor’ that has been discussed. Expand
Birth weight and Legg-Perthes disease.
TLDR
Histories of seventy-four single-born white children with Legg-Perthes disease in Massachusetts in 1964 were compared with histories of a matched series of children without the disease selected from birth certificates, showing no differences between the case and comparison children. Expand
Influence of maternal smoking on neonatal aortic intima-media thickness, serum IGF-I and IGFBP-3 levels
TLDR
Investigating the influence of maternal smoking on neonatal aortic IMT, serum IGF-I and IGF-binding protein-3 (IGFBP-3) levels found neonates whose mothers smoked have significantly increased aIMT might play a role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis in adult life. Expand
Will an adverse pregnancy outcome influence the risk of continued smoking in the next pregnancy?
TLDR
Risk of smoking in second pregnancy was increased among women with a previous small-for-gestational-age birth and reduced among women who had experienced a stillbirth or an infant death because of congenital malformations. Expand
Secondhand smoke, hypofibrinolysis, and Legg-Perthes disease.
TLDR
Assessment of relationships among parental cigarette smoking during pregnancy, household smoking before diagnosis of Legg-Perthes disease, hypofibrinolysis, and thrombophilia found secondhand smoke exposure correlated inversely with the major stimulator of fibrinoelsis, stimulated tissue plasminogen activator activity. Expand
Incidence and genetics of Legg-Perthes disease (osteochondritis deformans) in British Columbia: evidence of polygenic determination.
TLDR
The objectives of this study were to determine the incidence of Legg-Perthes in the Province of British Columbia, Canada, by identifying all children in whom the diagnosis was made for the first time during the period 1952-67 inclusive and to analyse for possible genetic factors. Expand
Epidemiology of Perthes' disease.
TLDR
The normal birthweight and absence of association with known prenatal influences suggest a determinant acting in early postnatal life, which points to major environmental influences in the etiology associated with poverty. Expand
Cigarette smoking and pregnancy I: ovarian, uterine and placental effects.
TLDR
Present evidence supports an adverse effect of smoking on ovarian function which is prolonged and dose-dependent, whereas there appear to be more reversible effects on implantation and ongoing pregnancy. Expand
