Patient Cases

Case 57: Neonatal Sepsis Sequelae of the Hip

Young man with neonatal sepsis sequelae affecting his right hip. We performed a pelvic support osteotomy with proximal and distal femoral osteotomies and application of circular external fixator to realign the hip joint and femur, and improve hip function and gait.

Case 58: Neonatal Sepsis Sequelae of the Hip

Young woman with neonatal sepsis sequelae affecting her left hip. We performed a pelvic support osteotomy with proximal and distal femoral osteotomies and application of circular external fixator to realign the hip and femur, and improve hip function and gait.

Case 59: Neonatal Sepsis Sequelae of the Hip

Fourteen year-old with neonatal sepsis sequelae affecting her left hip. We performed a pelvic support osteotomy with proximal and distal femoral osteotomies with realignment using a monolateral external fixator. Patient has improved gait and function.

Case 60: Neonatal Sepsis Sequelae of the Knee

Fifty-nine year-old woman with neonatal sepsis sequelae affecting her right knee. She has an elevated femoral condyle, dislocated patella, and a limb length discrepancy. We performed multiple intra-articular osteotomies to correct and realign her knee joint including widening of the femoral condyles, advancement of the medial condyle, and a tibial plateau elevation. Patient has a stable and functional knee.

Case 61: Neonatal Sepsis Sequelae of the Knee

Ten year-old boy with neonatal sepsis sequelae affecting his left knee. He has dislocation of the patella, internal torsion of the femur, and external rotation of the tibia. Patient also has a step deformity as well as a fishtail deformity at the knee. We performed multiple intra-articular osteotomies to realign the kneecap, separate the femoral condyles and even them, and derotate the femur. Patient now has a stable and functional knee.
