In the case of acquired coxa vara from a fracture, the proximal femur and femoral neck need accurate reduction and rigid fixation to avoid potential serious complications. This is achieved by performing a valgus osteotomy, with the valgus position of the femoral neck improving the action of the gluteus muscles, normalising the femoral neck angle, increasing total limb length and improving the joint congruence.


G vara is as a varus deformity of the femoral neck.

Subluxation in children is measured by the Ckxa Index and the Centre edge Angle. That is usually the vlga article where the information was first stated.

D ICD – Ashish Ranade et al also showed that a varus position of the neck is believed to prevent hip subluxation associated with femoral lengthening.

Literature is lacking, but surgical management appears to be the accepted treatment protocol for this condition. In this case study, the acetabulum is abnormal in coxa vara. Acquired musculoskeletal deformities M20—M25, Vsra— Coxa valga is a deformity of the hip where the angle formed between the head and neck of the femur and its shaft is increased, usually above degrees.


An associated dysplastic acetabulum can lead to a hip subluxation. Developmental coxa vara is a rare condition with an incidence of 1 in 25 live births.

A review on the development of coxa vara by Currarino et al showed an association with spondylometaphyseal dysplasia, demonstrating that stimulated corner fractures were present in most instances. The content on or accessible through Physiopedia is for informational purposes only.

The objective of medical interventions is to restore the neck-shaft angle and realigning the epiphysial plate to decrease shear forces and promote ossification of the femoral neck defect. Patients may also show femoral retroversion or decreased anteversion. Toggle navigation p Physiopedia. Retrieved from ” https: Contents Editors Var Share Cite.

There are 3 types Coxa Vara, acquired, congenital and developmental, usually displaying greater acetabular dysplasia and an abnormal acetabulum. It is caused by a vaara epiphysis of the femoral head.
