29 Possible Causes for Shallow Acetabulum

  • Coxa Valga

    In Dysplastic Hip structural deviations of femoral anteversion, coxa valga, and a shallow acetabulum can result in increased articular exposure of the femoral head, less congruence[]

  • Coxa Vara

    acetabulum with a more oval shape Scrutinize films for evidence of acquired or metabolic causes of coxa vara, such as avascular necrosis , slipped capital femoral epiphysis[] Progressive degenerative changes of the hip joint occurred with a resultant shallow acetabulum and a small irregular head of the femur.[] Moreover, arthrography demonstrated a deformed, bullet-shaped femoral head, which could not be concentrically reduced in the shallow, dysplastic acetabulum (Fig. 5).[]

  • Malum Coxae Senilis

    Acetabular dysplasia – where the acetabulum is too shallow, putting too much pressure on the articular cartilage.[]

  • Congenital Hip Dysplasia

    There is a dysplastic left acetabulum (shallow left acetabulum), and a small left femoral epiphysis when compared to the right.[] […] include a shallow acetabulum and persistent femoral anteversion Hip may be subluxatable or dislocated (reducible or irreducible) a dysplastic hip does not necessarily need[] Hip Dysplasia can also be caused by a lot of structural abnormalities like a shallow acetabulum, a flat or irregular caput femoris, a femoral or acetabular anteversion, and[]

  • Hip Dislocation

    acetabulum, a small, misshapen femoral head and sometimes osteophyes, and (2) clinically, by a lax joint, weak rump muscles with or without lameness.[] Milder forms of acetabular dysplasia (shallow acetabulum) may present in adult life and may give rise to recurrent dislocation.[] […] on the limb, excessive mobility of the limb, crepitus at the joint, and in some cases shortening of the limb. hip dysplasia (HD) is manifested (1) radiographically by a shallow[]

  • Hip Fracture

    The result is a socket that is too shallow. In severe cases, dislocation of the ball from the socket can occur.[] Learn more about Avascular Necrosis Development Dysplasia of the Hip (DDH) Dysplasia of the hip occurs as a result of improper formation of the hip socket (the acetabulum)[]

  • Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis

    The acetabulum may have a shallow dysplastic morphology with a laterally and superiorly subluxated hip similar to patients with congenital hip dysplasia.[]

  • Hip Dysplasia Type Beukes

    DDH is observed with variable degrees of severity from mild lateral instability of the femoral head in a shallow acetabulum with slight capsular laxity to complete dislocation[] In actetabular dysplasia the acetabulum (socket) is too shallow or deformed. The center-edge angle is measured as described by Wiberg.[] In patients with hip dysplasia, the acetabulum is shallow, meaning that the ball, or femoral head, cannot firmly fit into the socket.[]

  • Pseudoachondroplasia

    In hip, shallow acetabulum with hip dysplasia and secondary degenerative changes. Marked dysplasia of the femoral head, short neck of femur.[] In the pelvis, the acetabulum (hip socket) is shallow and accentuates hip dysplasia. The triradiate cartilage is also late to mature and ossify.[]

  • Cleidocranial Dysplasia

    Placing the left femur in the relatively less stable valgus configuration that is opposite a shallow acetabulum incapable of adaptive remodeling may have contributed to the[] If the neck-shaft angle is 140 or greater postoperatively, acetabular remodeling should result in improvement of the dysplasia (shallow acetabulum) that is seen in untreated[] Correction of the neck-shaft angle to 140 or more resulted in remodeling the acetabulum to a normal depth.[]
