Most functional bracing is achieved using a waist belt and thigh cuffs derived from the Scottish-Rite orthosis. A deficiency of protein C and protein Swhich also act as blood anticoagulants, may also exist; if that were the case, their deficiency could cause clot formation in ligamentum teres femoris artery and hinder blood supply to the femoral head.

Physiotherapy generally involves a series of daily exercises, with weekly meetings with a physiotherapist to monitor progress. Symptoms like femoral head disfigurement, flattening, and collapse occur typically between ages four and ten, mostly male children of Caucasian descent.

The most important factors for treating and establishing the prognosis of LPC are: Geographic and temporal trends in incidence reflecting differences in degree of deprivation in childhood”. The hip joint is a ball-and-socket joint. Later in the disease course, leg length discrepancy, as well as atrophy of musculature around the hip can be observed.


However, no evidence of this has been found; over the years, many theories have been published, but none has stood up to professional research. Top of the page – Article Outline.

It is predominantly a disease of boys 4: The active phase of the disease can last for several years, and during this phase the femoral head becomes partially or completely necrotic and gradually deformed. Who’s who in orthopedics.
