Abstract

Fixation of chronic slipped capital femoral epiphysis with a single-cannulated screw has been shown to provide adequate epiphyseal stability and to promote physeal fusion, while decreasing the rate of complications that occur with multiple-pin or screw fixation or open epiphysiodesis procedures. Percutaneous-screw insertion, with careful attention to the site of entry of the screw, can further decrease morbidity.
