Abduction injuries of the distal femoral epiphysis.


Based on a follow-up study of 15 distal femoral epiphyseal fractures, the following conclusions are drawn: Closed reduction with cross pinning of the distal femoral epiphysis provided slightly better results and prevented loss of reduction; angulation deformity, requiring corrective surgery occurred in four patients, two of whom had initial anatomical reductions; significant leg length inequality was not seen; abduction injuries of the distal femoral epiphysis are not uncommon in teenage football players.
