Abstract

Thirty-two patients (out of 52 undergoing surgery) with Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease (LCP) were examined retrospectively to assess the efficacy of surgical treatment on epiphyseal morphology at the primary healing. The analysis of the clinical results of the 33 hips considered indicated that it is necessary to operate above all on 3rd grade hips. For these the most frequent operation indicated is osteotomy of the pelvis. Femoral osteotomy must be limited to cases with only a slightly deformed femoral epiphysis in patients below the age of 7-8 years.
