In most centers, the recommended initial management of stable SCFE is in situ pinning. Minimal reduction with in situ pinning is recommended for unstable SCFE. This approach does not restore the normal anatomy of the hip joint, and the resulting proximal femoral deformity may cause femoroacetabular impingement. Patients with femoroacetabular impingement experience… CONTINUE READING
