• femur
  • No other support members, either crosspins or arms extending into the length of the femur, are required. (google.com)
  • 2. The implant of claim 1 , wherein the solid body member has a length for positioning, in use, in the natural femoral neck without passage of the distal end through the lateral side of the femur. (google.com)
  • There are two main types of leg length inequalities: Structural differences are caused by the legs themselves being measurably different in length, usually due to differences in the length of the femur in the thigh or the tibia and fibula bones in the lower leg. (wikipedia.org)
  • groin pain
  • Common symptoms include hip, knee (hip pathology can refer pain to a normal knee), or groin pain, exacerbated by hip or leg movement, especially internal hip rotation (with the knee flexed 90°, twisting the lower leg away from the center of the body). (wikipedia.org)
  • injuries
  • The other, more common, type is seen when the legs themselves are the same length, but due to neuromuscular injuries in the pelvis or upper leg, one leg or hip is held higher and tighter than the other (hypertonicity in the musculature of the pelvis or leg). (wikipedia.org)
  • femoral
  • On X-rays, the length of the lower limb can be measured from the proximal end of femoral head to the center of the plafond of the distal tibia. (wikipedia.org)
  • citation needed
  • In some cases, pain is felt in the unaffected hip and leg,[citation needed] due to the children favoring their injured side and placing the majority of their weight on their "good" leg. (wikipedia.org)
  • citation needed] It is exactly the length of the diagonal of a square with side length 1. (wikipedia.org)
  • side
  • Another confounding factor is that simply moving the two legs held together and leaning them imperceptibly to one side or the other produces different results. (wikipedia.org)
  • In geometrical terms, the square root function maps the area of a square to its side length. (wikipedia.org)
  • where the length z of the third side has been replaced by the vector sum x + y. (wikipedia.org)
  • Another early close approximation is given in ancient Indian mathematical texts, the Sulbasutras (c. 800-200 BC) as follows: Increase the length [of the side] by its third and this third by its own fourth less the thirty-fourth part of that fourth. (wikipedia.org)
  • bone
  • One millimetre a day is commonly the amount of distraction, however the soft tissue increases in length at a slower pace than the bone which leads to soft tissue tension. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Hydrothermal isometric tension measurements indicated that collagen remodeling occurred during tendon adaptation to bone length, with the process being more marked at the muscle-tendon junction. (biomedsearch.com)
  • There is vascularized fibular grafts in which they take the leg bone and put it into the hip. (lifebridgehealth.org)
  • tibia
  • Comparison of tibia and tendon length correlation in control rats of different ages and in experimental animals showed that adaptation was more complete in young rats than in adult rats. (biomedsearch.com)
  • include
  • Identified risk factors for plantar fasciitis include excessive running, standing on hard surfaces for prolonged periods of time, high arches of the feet, the presence of a leg length inequality, and flat feet. (wikipedia.org)
  • surgery
  • Tendon lengths were found to decrease after a short period of recovery (1 or 2 months) whether surgery was performed in young or adult animals. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Pain
  • Unequal leg length might hypothetically be one of the contributors, as it may contribute to a tilted pelvis, which may cause lower back pain, which in turn may be mistaken for menstrual pain, as women with lower back pain experience increased pain during their periods. (wikipedia.org)
  • As unequal leg length may contribute to a tilted pelvis, this may contribute to lower back pain. (wikipedia.org)
  • Certain biomechanical or muscle length imbalances may ultimately predispose a person to sacroiliac dysfunction and pain. (wikipedia.org)

  • Metal
  • Metal frames are attached to the leg and / or foot and over a period of time the frame is manipulated to obtain the corrected position. (clinicaltrials.gov)
