UNLABELLED Femoroacetabular impingement causing pain and deformity often follows in situ pinning for severe, stable (Grade III) slipped capital femoral epiphysis. We asked whether a transverse percutaneous subtrochanteric osteotomy using external fixation could decrease pain, restore function and motion, and improve radiographic outcome. We performed a transverse subtrochanteric osteotomy with external fixation in 13 patients who had prior in situ pinning for severe slipped capital femoral… CONTINUE READING
