In the case of acquired coxa vara from a fracture, the proximal femur and femoral neck need accurate reduction and rigid fixation to avoid potential serious complications. Arthrogryposis Larsen syndrome Rapadilino syndrome.

Retrieved from ” https: Contents Editors Categories Share Cite. Developmental coxa vara is a rare condition vvalga an incidence of 1 in 25 live births. A review on the development of coxa vara by Currarino et al showed an association with spondylometaphyseal dysplasia, demonstrating that stimulated corner fractures were present in most instances. Another possible explanation for the high occurrence of coxa vara is the loss of reduction after initial fracture reduction of implant failure in unstable fractures.
Toggle navigation p Physiopedia. Skull and face Craniosynostosis: Articles lacking sources from December All articles lacking sources Infobox medical condition new All stub articles. There are 3 types Coxa Vara, acquired, congenital and developmental, usually displaying greater acetabular dysplasia and an abnormal acetabulum.
Pectus excavatum H carinatum. The objective of medical interventions is to restore the neck-shaft angle and realigning the epiphysial plate to decrease shear forces and promote ossification of the femoral neck defect. An associated dysplastic acetabulum can lead to a hip subluxation. Congenital coxa vara results in a decrease in metaphyseal bone as a result of abnormal maturation and ossification of proximal femoral chondrocyte.
This page was last edited on 1 Aprilat Clinically, the condition presents itself as an abnormal, but painless gait pattern.
MRI can be used to visualise the epiphyseal plate, which may be widened in coxa vara. The differential diagnosis includes neuromuscular disorders i.
Genu valgum Genu varum Genu recurvatum Discoid meniscus Congenital patellar dislocation Congenital knee dislocation.
AP radiographs in standing are taken, usually of both hips in a neutral position. Xoxa Ranade et al also showed that a varus position of the neck is believed to prevent hip subluxation associated with femoral lengthening. It is caused by a slipped epiphysis of the femoral head. In this case study, the acetabulum is abnormal in coxa vara.
In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Signs to look out for are as follows:. Coxa vara is as a varus deformity of the femoral neck. This is achieved by performing a valgus osteotomy, with the valgus position of the femoral neck cooxa the action of the gluteus muscles, normalising the femoral neck angle, increasing total limb length and improving the joint congruence.
Madelung’s deformity Clinodactyly Oligodactyly Polydactyly. A retrospective study of femoral neck fractures in children show the following complications: This human musculoskeletal system article is a stub. CT can be used to determine the degree of femoral anteversion or retroversion. Protrusio acetabuli Coxa valga Coxa vara.
Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources. Retrieved from ” https: Surgery is the most effective treatment protocol. A progressive varus deformity might also occur in congenital coxa vara as well as excessive growth of the trochanter and shortening of the femoral neck.
Patients with coxa vara often show:. Acheiropodia Ectromelia Phocomelia Amelia Hemimelia.
Due to the low incidence of coxa vara and even lower for coxa valga, there is little literature currently available.
