The authors must have measured the internal tibial torsion and femoral anteversion and correlated the same with corrected toe-out angulation using the MWI.
(29,68) The longevity of THAs is based on factors such as small and abnormal bones (excessive anteversion and hypoplasia), growth and remodeling of bone, steroids, osteoporosis, and soft tissue contractures.
showed many complications after THA such as dislocation, aseptic loosening, or breakage of the implant in the early postoperative period because patients with this condition have inadequate muscle tension and complex femoral and acetabular deformities including excessive femoral anteversion, coxa valga, and leg-length inequality [10].
There may be combinations of different misalignments, such as the syndrome of external tibial sprain, observed in some runners, combining anteversion of femoral neck with internal rotation of the hip and genu varum, with or without hyperextension of the knee, converging patella, excessive Q angle (quadricipital), tibia varus, functional equinus, and compensatory pronation of the foot.
Bioarchaeological evidence for both polio and CP most frequently consists of atrophy and/or shortening of one or more long bones as well as other osseous changes such as femoral neck anteversion, hip dysplasia, scoliosis, and skeletal alterations in the foot (Brothwell and Browne 2002; Gladykowska-Rzeczycka and Smiszkiewicz-Skwarska 1998; Kozlowski and Piontek 2000; Martin and Potts 2012; Mitchell 1900; Novak et al.

Women differ from men in many factors, such as in having high fat mass, low muscle mass, short length, more femoral anteversion angle, in pelvic structure, and in neuromuscular strength.
The femoral length, head diameter, femoral neck length, craniocaudal angle, and anteversion angle were within 1.2 standard deviation from the average 60-year-old Caucasian woman [1921] while the aBMD in the femoral neck was 0.53 g*[cm.sup.-2], one standard deviation below the average 85-year-old Caucasian woman.
The femoral neck diameter, femoral neck length, anteversion angle, and craniocaudal angle were compared with the literature [19-21].
