The article presents a case of a 10-year-old girl with hip pain after screw placement for slipped capital femoral epiphysis. Results of physical examination demonstrated limited left hip flexion to 45° and pain with resisted straight-leg raising. After the superior screw was removed surgically, the condition of the patient improved markedly.

    The article presents information on some web sites about hip problems in childhood. Slipped capital femoral epiphysis is one of those conditions that general practitioners (GPs) do not see very often and it is easy to misdiagnose even if one thinks of it. It is easy to confuse with, among other...

    The biomechanical status of the hips subject to two different operative treatments was studied. The biomechanical status was determined by the peak stress on the weight bearing area using the 3-d mathematical model. It was found that the procedure according to Imhäuser yields considerably and...

    Background: The characteristics of patients who sustain unstable slipped capital femoral epiphyses (SCFEs) are not well described compared to their counterparts who sustain stable SCFE. Although patients with unstable slips are usually identified owing to acute symptoms, it is unclear whether...

    Abstract  Although several surgical techniques for midclavicular fractures have been reported, Knowles pinning has rarely been compared with plating. The purpose of this study is to compare the clinical results of these two alternative techniques. There were 88 patients with midclavicular...
