FRACS Orthopaedic Exams


An obese 13 year old child comes to see you, 6 weeks after an operation on their left hip, performed overseas. They complain of pain with movement and weightbearing. You request a radiograph of their pelvis and this is what you receive:

1. What view is this, and what does it show?
2. What was the original pathology in this child?
3. List the risk factors for this condition
4. How will you treat this child?
