  • Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis

    Characterized by limited internal rotation and abduction of the hip.[] .  The hip held in flexion, abduction, and external rotation.  There is substantial reduction in the arc of motion of the hip in all planes, and motion is usually painful[] Moving the leg out to the side known as abduction and rotating the hip outwards is often limited compared to the uninjured side.[]

  • Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease

    abduction of hip & limited internal rotation in both flexion & extension are seen; - antalgic gait (due to pain); - late phase: Trendelenburg gait; - Radiographic Evaluation[] The tenotomy group (Group II) consisted of 31 hips (treated conservatively but developed an adduction contracture limited to 30 ), which had been treated by adductor longus[] […] that is worse with activity referred knee pain Physical exam small for age thigh and calf muscle atrophy shortening of the leg (asymmetry) hip stiffness and limited range[]

  • Hip Fracture

    Often there is also discomfort and limited abduction in Flexion, Abduction and External Rotation (the FABER test).[] Sometimes there is a positive Drehmann's sign [4] - the hip runs into abduction and external rotation on flexion.[] Examination: Typically there is pain with Flexion, Adduction & Internal Rotation (the FADDIR test or anterior impingement test) of the hip.[]
