21 Possible Causes for Malum Coxae Senilis

  • Obesity

    BACKGROUND: Monogenic obesity results from single gene mutations. Extreme obesity starting at an early age, especially in infancy, which is associated with endocrinopathy and metabolic disturbances is key to the diagnosis of monogenic obesity. CASE PRESENTATION: A 6-month-old boy was admitted to our clinic with[…][]

  • Osteoarthritis

    Osteoarthritis (OA) is a major cause of disability in the adult population. As a progressive degenerative joint disorder, OA is characterized by cartilage damage, changes in the subchondral bone, osteophyte formation, muscle weakness, and inflammation of the synovium tissue and tendon. Although OA has long been[…][]

  • Morbid Obesity

    INTRODUCTION: Visceral adiposity is associated with decreased serum adiponectin levels, peripheral resistance to insulin and an increased risk of cardio-metabolic complications. However, the link between adiponectin expression in visceral adipose tissue (VAT), its serum levels and metabolic protection is controversial.[…][]

  • Hip Fracture

    Abstract Objectives: To identify the incidence of undiagnosed cervical myelopathy in patients who fall and develop hip fractures compared with age-matched controls. Design: Prospective, case–control study. Setting: University level 1 Trauma Center. Patients/Participants: Consecutive patients who presented with hip[…][]

  • Ankylosing Spondylitis

    Ankylosing spondylitis is a common form of inflammatory arthritis predominantly affecting the spine and pelvis that occurs in approximately 5 out of 1,000 adults of European descent. Here we report the identification of three variants in the RUNX3, LTBR-TNFRSF1A and IL12B regions convincingly associated with[…][]

  • Avascular Necrosis of the Femoral Head

    Avascular necrosis of the femoral head (AVNFH) is a condition that involves osteonecrosis of the femoral head, due to regional ischemia. It may be caused by trauma or other non-traumatic pathologies, and may ultimately lead to a collapse of the femoral section that has suffered osteonecrosis. Avascular necrosis[…][]

  • Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis

    Slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) is an adolescent hip disorder that is characterized by slippage of the femoral epiphysis through the epiphyseal plate. Most cases are idiopathic but there are associated risk factors. Once discovered, emergent surgery is necessary to prevent complications. The clinical picture[…][]

  • Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease

    Abstract OBJECTIVE. The causes of Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease are largely unknown, but this pediatric disease seems to result from interruption of the blood supply to the proximal femur and is considered a vascular disease. Because maternal smoking during pregnancy influences fetal development and is associated[…][]

  • Congenital Hip Dysplasia

    BACKGROUND: Some etiological factors involved in developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) occur in the last trimester of pregnancy, which could result in a decreased incidence of DDH in preterm infants. The aim of this study was to compare the incidence of DDH between preterm and term infants. METHODS: Ultrasound[…][]
