femoral epiphyseolysis
occurs in pigs 5 to 12 months old. There is moderate lameness in one or both hindlimbs. The onset is sudden and often precipitated by physical effort; it worsens within a few days so that the pig cannot use the limb. There is crepitus at the hip joint. There is an underlying osteochondrosis.
femoral head
rounded proximal articulating extremity of the femur; participates in the hip joint.
femoral head necrosis
femoral hernia
protrusion of a loop of intestine into the femoral canal, a tubular passageway that carries nerves and blood vessels to the thigh.
femoral ligament
ligament of the femoral head which runs from the depths of the acetabulum (hip socket) to the pit (fossa) in the head of the femur. See Table 12.
femoral nerve
the largest branch of the lumbar plexus. See Table 14.
femoral slipped head

Methods: Subjects were enrolled from patients seeking treatment at Pain Medicine Center of China Medical University Aviation General Hospital from October 2015 to December 2016, such as postherpetic neuralgia, spinal cord injury, femoral head necrosis, lumbar disc herniation, trigeminal neuralgia, complex regional pain syndrome, perineal pain, phantom limb pain, etc.
Initial management including conservative treatment (12 cases) and ORIF (35 cases) were performed in these patients; however, bad prognosis of acetabular malunion with traumatic arthritis occurred in all the patients, among which 6 cases were secondary to femoral head necrosis simultaneously.
Unfortunately, these data are not saved in this family; therefore, the femoral head necrosis was diagnosed in this family at first.
A displaced intracapsular femoral neck fracture is associated with a high incidence of nonunion and femoral head necrosis, as well as a significant mortality and disability.
Of these, 168 patients underwent THA, including 26 cases of femoral neck fracture, 101 cases of femoral head necrosis, 16 cases of osteoarthritis, 25 cases of congenital hip dysplasia, and 6 cases of intraoperative subtrochanteric osteotomy.
