Intraarticular Abnormalities in Residual Perthes and Perthes-like Hip Deformities
Clinical Orthopedics and Related Research, 05/16/2012
Ross JR et al. – Chondral lesions and labral tears are common in symptomatic patients with residual Perthes or Perthes–like deformities. Male sex, a high trochanter, and joint incongruity are associated with more advanced intraarticular disease. Secondary acetabular dysplasia seems to protect the articular cartilage in that hips with acetabular dysplasia had less chondromalacia.
