Treatment

Prognosis

  • All the patients in this series had functionally excellent hips, but the long-term prognosis of the hips with partly uncovered femoral heads is doubtful.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Treatment and prognosis Coxa valga can be associated with genu varum and lead to increased stress and early degenerative changes in the medial compartment of the knee.[radiopaedia.org]
