Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Seven patients (nine hips) who suffered from coxa vara were treated by distal transfer of the greater trochanter. the operation eliminated or markedly diminished the preoperative Trendelenburg sign, thus improving gait. in three patients (four hips) operated upon at the ages of 9 and 12 years, the initial coxa vara was converted into an almost normal valgus femoral neck. There was one poor result due to technical failure.
