Legg-Calve-Perthes

Anthony: Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease
I first examined Anthony when he was four years old, shortly after he had been diagnosed with bilateral Legg-Calve-Perthes disease. Anthony’s hips had limited range of motion and his left hip had 20 degrees less abduction than his right. Attempts at full abduction or internal rotation would result in pain. His left hip involved the entire femoral head while the right hip was less severely involved. I placed him on Naprosyn 250mg to be taken twice daily which provided good pain relief and greater ease during his physical therapy sessions.
Bernard: Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease
A pain in the leg around the age of 8 led to Bernard being diagnosed with Legg-Calve-Perthes disease. Review of an intraoperative arthrogram determined that the best course of treatment was arthrodiastasis with an EBI fixator applied to the hip. Since being treated, Bernard no longer experiences any pain is his hip and has returned to his normal activities with no limitations.
