Abstract

Objective: The management of slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) frequently seen in obese adolescents is fixation with cannulated screw. In this study, it was aimed to evaluate the relationship between the stability of the physis and the number of screw threads passing across the physeal line in the treatment of slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) with single screw fixation.
