Legg-Perthes disease in children less than four years old



Legg-Perthes disease in children less than four years old



Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery. American Volume 60(2): 166-168



In children with Legg-Perthes disease who were less than four years old, better results were seen after treatment by recumbency and abduction bracing than with no treatment. All results were better in children having mild epiphyseal involvement (Catterall Groups I and II) than in those with more extensive disease.
