  • Acetabular Version Increases During Adolescence Secondary to Reduced Anterior Femoral Head Coverage. [Journal Article]
    Clin Orthop Relat Res 2019Grammatopoulos G, Jamieson P, … Beaulé PE
  • CONCLUSIONS: With skeletal maturity, acetabular version increases, especially rostrally. This increase is associated with, and is likely a result of, a reduced anterior acetabular sector angle (that is, less coverage anteriorly, while the degree of coverage posteriorly remained the same). Thus, in patients were the normal developmental process is disturbed, a rim-trim might be an appropriate surgical solution, since the degree of posterior coverage is sufficient and no reorientation osteotomy would be necessary. However, further study on patients with retroversion (of various degrees) is necessary to characterize these observations further. The changes in version were not associated with any of the tested patient factors; however, further study with greater power is needed.
