Full text

The late stages of slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) are characterized by a pronounced displacement of the epiphysis, which can be chronic or acute along with chronic. Primary-acute displacement of the epiphysis, which is much less common, is also generally severe.

Chronic displacement in typical cases of the disease occurs either in a posterior-downward direction or only posteriorly. Synostosis of the epiphysis and metaphysis in a vicious position in the absence of treatment after acute displacement usually starts already on day 2–3 [1–4].

For several decades, the spatial relationships of the epiphysis and acetabulum with pronounced acute (at the stage of partial synostosis) and chronic displacements were restored by using various types of extra-articular corrective hip osteotomy and classical Dunn surgery [5–7].

However, these interventions, especially the latter, are characterized by an unacceptably large number of early complications in the form of chondrolysis of the hip joint and aseptic necrosis of the femoral head. Limitation of rotation of the proximal femur anteriorly during extra-articular corrective hip osteotomy to an angle of 45° enables avoidance of the above complications and obtains good treatment results with displacement of the epiphysis posteriorly by no more than 45°.

Meanwhile, with a shift of more than 45° in the postoperative period, the residual displacement of the epiphysis with respect to the articular cavity persists [8–11]. Even slight residual displacement causes femoroacetabular impingement, the destructive effect of which on the affected joint has been proven convincingly in recent studies [12–14].

In 2007, a group of surgeons from Switzerland, led by M. Leunig, improved the technique of classical Dunn surgery through the use of a low-trauma surgical dislocation of the hip and the formation of a massive graft nourishing the epiphysis, which reduced significantly the number of postoperative ischemic complications [15–18]. Surgeons used a modified Dunn surgery in SCFE with moderate and severe displacement of the epiphysis.

This work aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of modified Dunn surgery in the treatment of pediatric patients with SCFE.

Materials and methods

Since 2021 at the Turner Scientific Research Institute for Children’s Orthopedics, 10 patients (6 boys and 4 girls) aged 11 to 15 years, with SCFE with a severe displacement of the epiphysis, underwent modified Dunn surgery. According to the nature of the displacement of the epiphysis, the affected joints were distributed as follows: chronic in five cases (three of which were posterior-downward displacements and only two were posterior displacements), acute while chronic in four cases and primary acute in one case.

In all five joints with acute displacement at the time of the surgery, there were signs of partial synostosis of the epiphysis and metaphysis. In the contralateral joint, there was no epiphysis displacement (pre-slip) in all 10 cases. Clinical and radiological (radiography and multispiral computed tomography) research methods were used.

An indication for a modified Dunn surgery was SCFE with a chronic, acute when chronic and primary-acute severe displacement of the epiphysis (more than 60° posteriorly and/or more than 30° downward) in the presence of partial synostosis of the epiphysis and metaphysis in cases of acute displacement.

The most detailed description of the modified Dunn surgery technique, in our opinion, was given by Ziebarth et al. in 2009 [19]. In our work, we strove for strict adherence to the author’s technique, including all the described details of the intervention.

Particular attention was paid to determining the direction and length of the joint capsule dissection (Z-shaped during surgery on the right and anti-Z-shaped during surgery on the left joint) (Fig. 1, a) and careful subperiosteal isolation of the femoral neck, allowing us to obtain a massive graft nourishing the epiphysis (Fig.

1, b). In addition, in order to avoid damage to the formed nourishing graft containing ascending branches of a. circumflexa femoris medialis, it is necessary to be extremely careful when performing a neck osteotomy (Fig. 2, a) and removal of the subepiphyseal trabecular bone with the remains of the growth plate (Fig.

2, b). To determine the presence and intensity of blood flow in the epiphysis, immediately after dislocation of the femoral head from the joint cavity, a hole in its anterior pole was drilled with a Kirschner wire. The absence of bleeding from the hole after osteosynthesis of the epiphysis and metaphysis indicated excessive tension of the nourishing graft; therefore, it was necessary to perform additional shortening of the neck.

Depending on the severity of regional osteoporosis, two or three wires with a diameter of 2.5 mm were used to fix the epiphysis with bent threads on the end, which were brought into different planes from the side of the epiphysis (from the fovea capitis ossis femoris) and metaphysis.

Fig. 2. Technique of modified Dunn surgery: a — osteotomy of the femoral neck; b — removal of the subepiphyseal trabecular bone with the remains of the growth plate [19]

Surgical intervention was planned by using a personal computer and software to create a 3D model of the reconstructed hip joint based on multispiral computed tomography (Fig. 3). As a result, it became possible to determine more accurately the shape and size of the resected fragment of the femoral neck depending on the nature and severity of its deformity and the related level of fixation of the previously excised greater trochanter to the femur.

Diagnosis: slipped capital femoral epiphysis, stage III on the right and stage I on the left: a — proximal end of the right femur before 3D-modeling of the surgery; b — proximal end of the right femur after 3D modeling of the surgery and the resected fragment of the neck

The surgery was performed under general anesthesia with prolonged epidural anesthesia, which lasted for 2–3 days. From day 2 of the postoperative period, under the supervision of an exercise therapy instructor, therapeutic exercises for flexion, abduction and internal rotation of the hip were started with appropriate laying and mechanotherapy on the Artromot apparatus.

On the contralateral side, all 10 patients had an extra-articular fixation of the femoral head epiphysis with a cannulated screw.

Юношеский эпифизеолиз головки бедренной кости — лечение в москве | цито

Юношеский эпифизеолиз головки бедренной кости —патология, характерная для детского возраста, при которой происходит одномоментное или постепенное смещение эпифиза на уровне зоны роста.

Данная патология встречается примерно у 2 человек на 100000 населения. Чаще встречается у мальчиков. Двустороннее поражение составляет 18-50% случаев.

ЮЭГБК впервые описан в 1572 г., однако до настоящего времени подавляющее большинство детей с данной патологией поступает в стационар очень поздно, с выраженной деформацией, вследствие чего становится невозможным малотравматичное хирургическое лечение. В связи с редкостью патологии, зачастую не всегда удается своевременно поставить диагноз. Также довольно спорным является вопрос о высокой вероятности двустороннего поражения. В итоге начать лечение получается лишь спустя длительное время после появления первых симптомов.

В результате множественных исследований было выявлено, что в основе болезни лежит дисбаланс гормонов, играющих крайне важную роль в развитии зон роста костей. В частности, это происходит вследствие недостаточности половых гормонов.

Существует 5 стадий развития ЮЭГБК:

  1. Без рентгенологических признаков смещения.

  2. Незначительное смещение эпифиза кзади (не больше 30 гр.).

  3. Значительное смещение эпифиза кзади (больше 30 гр.) и книзу (больше 15 гр.).

  4. Острое смещение.

  5. Остаточная деформация проксимального эпифиза бедренной кости.

При диагностике крайне важным является сбор анамнеза, тщательный осмотр, выполнение рентгенографии тазобедренных суставов в прямой проекции и проекции по Лаунштейну.

Еще одной проблемой является то, что заболевание долгое время протекает бессимптомно, что усложняет своевременную постановку диагноза и обеспечение правильного лечения.

По мере прогрессирования заболевания происходит формирование характерных симптомов: боль в коленном суставе, отведение и ротация бедра кнаружи (симптом Гофмейстера).

Лечение данной патологии только хирургическое. На ранних стадиях показано применение малоинвазивных хирургических методик, таких как односторонний, либо двухсторонний эпифизеодез винтами, спицами.

На более поздних стадиях наиболее хорошие результаты обеспечивает применение различных остеотомий проксимального отдела бедренной кости с целью обеспечения корректного положения головки бедренной кости в вертлужной впадине.

Results and discussion

Careful collection of anamnestic data enabled us to determine accurately the time of occurrence and the nature of the first complaints, the type of displacement of the epiphysis (chronic, acute, or acute when chronic) and the date of acute displacement, as well as to clarify the features of previous treatment measures.

The correct diagnosis was established on average 17.3 weeks (from 4 to 32 weeks) after onset of the first clinical symptoms of SCFE, while strict bed rest was prescribed only to 6 out of 10 patients, and only 4 pediatric patients followed it. In four of the five cases with an acute displacement of the epiphysis, the treatment included the application of skeletal or cuff traction, and derotational gypsum boot in one case.

In two of the three cases, not only was the joint unloaded during skeletal traction, but the epiphysis was also repositioned. In five cases with a chronic epiphysis displacement, a modified Dunn surgery was performed on average 38.4 weeks (from 28 to 56 weeks) after the appearance of the first clinical signs of the disease, and in five cases with acute displacement, 37.6 weeks (12−64 weeks) after an acute displacement.

A clinical study in the preoperative period, due to the high risk of epiphysis separation, was performed only with the patient in a horizontal position. In all cases, the vicious position of the external limb rotation on the affected side was revealed, on average 53.5 ± 13.6°.

Relative shortening of the limb was noted in all pediatric patients and averaged 2.1 ± 0.7 cm. In all affected joints, an excessive range of external rotation (average 77.0 ± 11.1°) and a limited range of abduction (average 26.5 ± 9.5°) were recorded, while movements within the possible amplitude were free.

An X-ray examination of the hip joints in standard projections (anteroposterior and by Lauenstein) in the preoperative period was performed to assess the direction and degree of epiphysis displacement, the nature and severity of the metaphysis deformity, and the severity of the pathological process in the contralateral joint, as well as to avoid early complications of SCFE.

In the presence of an acute displacement in the history, the degree of synostosis of the epiphysis and metaphysis was determined. The degree of posterior epiphysis displacement was estimated by the difference between the values of the epiphyseal angle in the joint without displacement and in the affected joint, and the degree of downward displacement was determined by the difference between the projection caput-collum-diaphyseal angle and epiphyseal-diaphyseal angle in the affected joint.

Out of nine cases with a chronic epiphysis displacement and an acute displacement with the chronic one, in five cases, a posterior-downward displacement was revealed, and in four cases, there was only a posterior displacement, with a posterior displacement of 63−86°, and a downward displacement of 7−19°.

In one case with a primary-acute epiphysis displacement, the latter occurred only downward and amounted to 32°. Severe deformity of the femoral neck was registered in 9 out of 10 patients, the neck was bent downward and posteriorly (a swan neck symptom) in accordance with the direction of the chronic epiphysis displacement, and in only one patient with primary-acute displacement, it had a normal shape.

In joints with an acute epiphysis displacement, the transition of the anterior surface of the femoral neck to the head was always step-like, and in joints with chronic displacement, it was smooth. In all 10 affected joints in the femoral neck, directly under the epiphyseal growth plate, the foci of osteoporosis were traced, located separately and merging with each other and with the growth plate.

In three cases, similar changes were also found in the contralateral joint. In all five joints with acute displacement and in three joints with chronic displacement, diffuse osteoporosis of the epiphysis was noted. It should be emphasized that none of the 10 affected joints had signs of aseptic necrosis of the femoral head or chondrolysis.

A sign of synostosis of the epiphysis and metaphysis, which began after an acute displacement, was the presence of newly formed bone tissue with a trabecular structure between them. The degree of synostosis depended on the number of these sites (the so-called bone bridges), the number of which was determined by a CT scan if necessary.

Radiography of the hip joints in standard projections was also performed on the operating table immediately after completion of the intervention. These radiographs mainly evaluated the spatial position of the epiphysis after correction and the correct location of the hardware installed.

The minimum residual displacement (within 5°) was maintained in 6 out of 10 affected joints (posterior to downward in 2 cases, only posterior in 3 cases, and only downward in 1 case). Hypercorrection of the epiphysis position was not allowed in any case.

During the first year of the postoperative period, a clinical examination of the patients was performed at months 1, 6, and 12, and X-ray was performed at months 1, 3, 6, 9, and 12.

We divided the immediate anatomical and functional results of treatment into satisfactory and unsatisfactory. The treatment result was considered satisfactory with a combination of the symptoms after 6 months after surgery, namely the spherical shape of the femoral head, the absence of subluxation in the joint, the presence of congruency in the articular surfaces, the absence of early complications (chondrolysis of the hip joint and aseptic necrosis of the femoral head), and a progressive increase in the range of femoral movements, including internal rotation. In other cases, the result was considered unsatisfactory.

On radiographs a month after the surgery, in all 10 cases, stable fixation of the epiphysis and greater trochanter was noted without loss of correction of their position and initial signs of consolidation at the level of osteotomies. In six of the eight joints with diffuse osteoporosis of the epiphysis, its severity increased slightly, and osteoporosis of the epiphysis appeared in two more joints.

In a clinical study, none of the patients had a vicious position of the limb, but its relative shortening persisted; in four cases, the latter increased by 0.5–1.0 cm. In all patients, the amplitude of the hip movements increased significantly, with soreness at the extreme points. The Drehmann symptom in all joints was negative.

Upon X-ray examination of the first seven patients, 6 months after the surgery, in all cases, the spatial position of the epiphysis and the greater trochanter had not changed, and there were signs of completion of consolidation at the osteotomy level.

In two cases, the initial phenomena of aseptic necrosis of the femoral head were noted, but in five others, there was a significant decrease in the severity of the epiphysis osteoporosis. There were no signs of hip chondrolysis in any cases. Clinically, in five joints with positive X-ray changes, an even greater increase in the amplitude of hip movements was revealed, and in one of the joints with incipient epiphysis necrosis, there was a slight decrease associated with the development of secondary synovitis. In all seven patients, at month 7 of the postoperative period, the hardware was removed.


The modified Dunn surgery enables to achieve a complete and accurate reposition of the epiphysis in SCFE with a severe epiphysis displacement and thereby eliminate femoroacetabular impingement in the reconstructed joint. To date, it is the only surgical intervention with a relatively small number of complications that ensures the elimination of femoroacetabular impingement in the considered anatomical situations.

The number of unsatisfactory results of surgical treatment did not exceed that reported in the literature. Summarizing the above, we can characterize the modified Dunn surgery as an effective intervention in SCFE with acute (at the stage of partial synostosis) and chronic epiphysis displacement of a severe degree. We plan to continue its application with an analysis of the results.
