the distance from most prominent point on the lateral surface of the greater trochanter (GT) to the centre of fovea of the head of femur
This criteria was based on percentage of head of femur
, which was not covered by acetabulum.
We feel that cesarean section is preferable to vaginal delivery to avoid the risk of trauma to the weak head of femur
in cases of TOH.
Therefore this may be considered for a possible bypass grafting in cases of ischemic necrosis of head of femur
following decreased blood flow through OBA, connecting the posterior division to the distal end of the obstruction.
Little work on the subject has been reported from India except for the study by Singh and Singh (1972A and 1972B) on the head of femur
They were completely cured without any recurrence or any other complications except for one patient who had segmental osteonecrosis of head of femur
due to the location of Brodie's abscess at the neck of femur.
After the examination, the head of femur
was cut from the neck and the sampling was performed.
But we had a case where there was a complete absorption of head of Femur
with the destruction of articular surface of Acetabulum, which is more commonly seen in Septic Arthritis of hip in infants.
Hence this problem was sorted by Allograft from excised head of femur
The indications for HRA are 21Fracture Neck of Femur, 1 Intertrochanteric fracture and 1 Avascular Nechrosis of head of femur
These poor results were due to occurrence of avascular necrosis of the head of femur
in 1 case and non-union in 2 cases.
Segment AB: From Most proximal point on upper end of femur to most distal point of the circumference of the head of femur
