The authors present preliminary results of thermographic examination of the hip and distal epiphysis of the femur after surgery of the proximal end of the femoral bone with the use of AGA 680 apparatus and IBM 486 PC data processing. The material included 10 children aged 3-11 years and evaluated 1 month to 3 years postoperatively. In 9 patients remarkable temperature increase within operated hip, less evident in bilateral surgery due to the smaller temperature difference. In 7 cases ipsilateral distal femoral epiphysis showed temperature increase; the phenomenon less perceptible in bilateral surgery again. The more time passed between surgery and examination the smaller was the temperature increase.
