Abstract

The position of the femoral head in relation to the calcar femorale was analyzed from 120 radiographs of normal hips. A constant relationship was found, providing a method of calculating the normal position of the femoral head. the method was tested in 56 cases with physiolysis of the hip and was found to be useful in determining the degree of slipping in both adolescents and adults.
