Enfermedad de Legg-Calve-Perthes

Traditionally arthrography performed under general anesthesia with conventional fluoroscopy is performed to assess congruency between the femoral head and the acetabulum in a variety of positions 3.

Eventually, the femoral head begins to fragment stage 2with subchondral lucency crescent sign and redistribution of weight-bearing stresses leading to thickening of some trabeculae which become more prominent. This may precipitate the presentation or the realisation of symptoms that in fact had been long standing. Slipped upper femoral epiphysis Slipped upper femoral epiphysis. Case 9 Case 9.

As the disease progresses, fragmentation and destruction of the femoral head occurs. Additionally, tongues of cartilage sometimes extend inferolaterally into the femoral neck, creating lucencies, which must be distinguished from infection or neoplastic lesions 4.


Cases and figures Imaging differential diagnosis.

Prognosis niks also influenced by the percentage of femoral head involvement and degree of primary deformity of the femoral head and the secondary osteoarthritic changes that ensue. Case 5 Case 5. In this situation, operative management is sometimes required to either ensure appropriate coverage of the femoral head by the acetabulum, or to replace the femoral head in adult life.

Case 2 Case 2. Bracing may be used in milder cases, although femoral neck and acetabular osteotomies may be required to correct more pertes abnormal femoroacetabular malalignment. Presentation is typically at a younger age than slipped upper femoral epiphysis with peak presentation at years, but confidence intervals are as wide as years 8.
