In general, children who are diagnosed with Legg-Calve-Perthes after age 6 are more likely to develop hip problems later maladis life. The disease is theorized lfgg-perthes-calv include the artery of the ligmentum teres femoris being constricted or even blocked too early, not allowing for maladje when the medial circumflex femoral artery takes over. Current treatment options for older children over age 8 include prolonged periods without weight bearing, osteotomy femoral, pelvic, or shelfand the hip distraction method using an external fixator which relieves the hip from carrying the body’s weight.

Cycling is another good option as it also keeps stress to a minimum. The pain is usually in the hip, but can also be felt in the knee referred pain.

Clinical description The initial symptoms are usually a limping gait, pain in the hip, thigh or knee, and a reduced range of hip motion. Prognosis Prognosis is variable and several factors are of prognostic importance, such as the extent of femoral head necrosis and residual deformity.

A recent study suggested that femoral osteotomy gives significantly better results than treatment with braces specifically the Scottish Rite abduction orthosis. Total malavie replacement in early adulthood may be required in some cases. Mutations in the COL2A1 gene 12qq When an LCP disease diagnosis occurs after age 8, a better outcome results with surgery rather than nonoperative treatments.

The condition is also linked to arthritis of the hip, though this appears not to be an inevitable consequence.

The important factors for establishing diagnosis concerning definition, etiology, physiopathology and clinical manifestations are reminded. Swimming is highly recommended, as it allows exercise of the hip muscles with full range of motion while reducing the stress to a minimum.


Younger children have a better prognosis than older children.

Children affected by LCP disease often display uneven gait and limited range of motion, and they experience mild to severe pain in the groin area. New cases of Perthes’ disease rarely occur after age 14 years if diagnosed after 14 years of age, then it is usually old disease from early in childhood or avascular necrosis from an alternative cause.

Access to the PDF text. The etiology of LCPD remains obscure. Due to the lack of blood flow, the bone dies osteonecrosis or avascular necrosis and stops growing. However, no evidence of this has been found; over the years, many theories have been published, but none has stood up to professional research.
