Abstract

The concentrations of proteoglycan fragments and stromelysin were analyzed in joint aspirates in 19 children with Legg-Calve-Perthes disease. We found increased levels of proteoglycan fragments and stromelysin consistent with the presence of synovitis, an important clinical and possibly also prognostic factor in these children.
