34 Possible Causes for Fragmentation of Femoral Epiphyses

  • Schwartz-Jampel Syndrome

    […] of femoral epiphyses, pectus carinatum, acetabular dysplasia, and coxa vara.[] Both had, in addition to the shortening and flaring of the metaphyses, severe spinal deformity (kyphoscoliosis) and fragmented femoral epiphyses with rapid destruction on[] Skeletal and articular disorders consist chiefly of limitation of motion of the hips, wrist, toes, and spine, short vertebrae with brevicollis, fragmentation and flattening[]

  • Distal Femur Fracture

    […] to accomodate the variable degree of anterior femoral bow that might be present; - nail is driven thru old epiphyseal scar to level of intercondylar notch, hence an appropriately[] […] nails than is seen in midshaft fractures; - thus, the cancellous bone is not reamed; - distal third frx especially require minimal 1.0 to 1.5 mm overreaming of proximal fragment[]

  • Osteochondritis Dissecans

    The average scores in both groups were higher in knees in which the osteochondritic defect was small and was treated before epiphyseal closure, and in knees in which the fragment[] Note the bony fragment had resulted in a concave crater on the femoral condyle with steeply sloping edges (arrows) Figure 6 Patient 1: Anteroposterior at age of 17 years foot[] […] treatment before epiphyseal closure.[]

  • Avascular Necrosis of the Femoral Head

    Radiologically, the femoral head ossification center may be condensed, deformed or fragmented.[] […] belonging to the group of spondylo epiphyseal dysplasia; deformation of the femoral head through malposition such as C.D.H.[] Etiologically, the cases placed in 3 groups: idiopathic osteochondritis of the femoral head or early discovered Perthes' disease; dysplasia capiti femoris or a malformation[]

  • Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease

    Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease (LCPD) is a common childhood hip disorder characterized by sequential stages of involvement of the capital femoral epiphyses, including subchondral[] epiphyses, including subchondral fracture, fragmentation, re-ossification and healing with residual deformity.[] , destruction As changes progress, the width of the femoral neck increases ( coxa magna ) in order to increase weight-bearing support.[]

  • Juvenile Myxedema

    Patients with these conditions have abnormal ossification of epiphyseal centers that may appear porous, stippled, or fragmented on roentgenogram (epiphyseal dysgenesis).[] These changes are most pronounced in large ossification centers such as the femoral head and tarsal navicular.[]

  • Pseudoachondroplasia

    Delayed epiphyseal ossification. Epiphyses appear irregular and fragmented. In joints hips and knees are primarily affected.[] Marked dysplasia of the femoral head, short neck of femur. Flattend femoral head may show fragmention. In knee Genu varum deformity. Short stubby metacarpals.[]
