BACKGROUND Sequelae of Perthes disease commonly manifests as complex hip pathomorphology including coxa magna, coxa brevis, and acetabular dysplasia. These abnormalities contribute to femoroacetabular impingement and early osteoarthritis. This report describes our experience with correction of the proximal femoral deformity associated with Perthes disease through surgical dislocation, osteochondroplasty (SDO), trochanteric advancement, and treatment of intraarticular chondrolabral injury… CONTINUE READING
