About this book

Legg-Calvé-Perthes Disease (LCPD) remains a challenging hip condition to treat. More than a century after its identification, the etiology of LCPD remains unclear and treatment continues to be controversial. The main goal of treatment is to prevent femoral head deformation. Preservation of femoral head sphericity is known to minimize the risk of premature hip pain, stiffness and arthritis. The best ways to achieve these goals remain elusive.  This book is replete with up-to-date discussions of history, epidemiology, radiology and classification systems for LCPD. It takes a well-balanced, evidence-based approach to various methods of treatment, from conventional containment femoral and pelvic surgery, to more cutting-edge procedures such as transfemoral head-neck tunneling, hip distraction, hip arthroscopy and  intraarticular femoral head reshaping osteotomies, ending with a discussion of the latest biologic and pharmacologic treatment strategies. It is a well-illustrated tome for the various surgical techniques presented.  The chapter authors, all experts in LCPD, share their practical, innovative and comprehensive approach to this challenging condition. Legg-Calvé-Perthes Disease will be the definitive reference work on this condition for many years to come.
