Avascular Necrosis #1

Avascular necrosis is the death of bone tissue due to a lack of blood supply. (From the Mayo Clinic)

Avascular Necrosis #2

Coxa Valga

Coxa valga described a deformity of the hip where the angle formed between the head and neck of the femur and its shaft is increased, usually above 135 degrees. (From

Coxa Vara

Coxa vara describes a deformity of the hip where the angle formed between the head and neck of the femur and its shaft (Mikulicz angle) is decreased, usually defined as less than 120 degrees. (From

Femoral Anteversion

Femoral Anteversion is a condition in which the femoral neck leans forward with respect to the rest of the femur. This causes the lower extremity on the affected side to rotate internally (i.e. the knee and foot twists towards the midline of the body). (From John Hopkins Medicine)

Femoral Shaft Fractures #1

The long, straight part of the femur is called the femoral shaft. When there is a break anywhere along this length of bone, it is called a femoral shaft fracture. (From the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons)

Femoral Shaft Fractures #2

Iliotibial Band Tightness

Iliotibial band syndrome occurs when the ligament that extends from the outside of the pelvic bone to the outside of the tibia (iliotibial band) becomes so tight that it rubs against the outer portion of the femur. (From the Mayo Clinic)

Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease #1

Legg-Calve-Perthes disease occurs when blood supply is temporarily interrupted to the ball part (femoral head) of the hip joint. Without sufficient blood flow, the bone begins to die. (From the Mayo Clinic)

Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease #2

Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis

Slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) is an unusual disorder of the adolescent hip. The ball at the upper end of the femur (thigh bone) slips off in a backward direction. This is due to weakness of the growth plate. Most often, it develops during periods of accelerated growth, shortly after the onset of puberty. (From the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons)

Subcapital and Trochanteric Fractures

A Subcapital Fracture is an intracapsular fracture of the neck of the femur, at the point where the neck of the femur joins the head. (From mediLexicon)

Intertrochanteric Fractures occur between the neck of the femur and a lower bony prominence called the lesser trochanter. Subtrochanteric Fractures occur below the lesser trochanter, in a region that is between the lesser trochanter and an area approximately 2 1/2 inches below.
