Treatment of Congenital Femoral Deficiency Dror Paley DEFINITION The term proximal focal femoral deficiency (PFFD) is used to describe congenital femoral deficiency and deformity of the proximal femur to be distinguished from the congenital short femur.6 However, the more comprehensive term congenital femoral deficiency (CFD)15 better describes the spectrum of deficiency, deformity, and. Abstract Congenital femoral deficiency is a challenging paediatric orthopaedic problem that requires a multidisciplinary approach. Patients vary significantly in term of severity from a very mild form that does not require surgical intervention to complete absence of femur
Treatment for congenital femoral deficiency can vary widely depending on the severity of the condition. For minor cases, observation, exercises and physical therapy may be appropriate Evidence-Based Treatment for Congenital Femoral Deficiency. Fig. 7.1. A child with right type I CFD. Fig. 7.2. A child with bilateral CFD, left IIb and right is IIIB. Fig. 7.3. A, B. Two other children with CFD. A literature review of English-speaking orthopaedic literature was performed to identify areas of controversy and to review the best.
Most patients with mild to moderate congenital femoral deficiency/proximal femoral focal deficiency can be successfully treated with limb reconstruction and sequential limb lengthening. Initial treatment begins around the age of 18-24 months. This initial treatment consists of joint reconstruction for the hip and knee Proximal Femoral Focal Deficiency is a congenital condition caused by a defect in the primary ossification center of the proximal femur that may present with an absent hip, femoral neck pseudoarthrosis, absent femur, or a shortened femur. Diagnosis is made with radiographs of the hip and femur. Treatment is nonoperative or operative depending. When treating congenital femoral deficiency, the goal should be to outline the scope of treatment needed and form a life plan for these operations. Human dignity is always the top priority when making clinical decisions
Management of proximal femoral focal deficiency (PFFD) requires a multidisciplinary team, which includes the pediatric orthopedic surgeon, prosthetists, and physical therapists. No single treatment.. Overview. Congenital femoral deficiency (CFD) refers to a spectrum of congenital (present at birth) malformations of the thigh bone due to incomplete or abnormal development.CFD may affect one leg (most commonly) or both legs. Severity can range from minor shortening of the femur (appearing normal), to complete absence of much or all of the femur Internal lengthening device for congenital femoral deficiency and fibular hemimelia Clin Orthop Relat Res . 2014 Dec;472(12):3860-8. doi: 10.1007/s11999-014-3572-3 Congenital abnormalities of the femur vary from a deficiency of the entire femur with abnormal development of the pelvis to a hypoplastic femur of normal configuration. Previous classification systems that have focused on either congenital coxa vara, hypoplastic femur, or proximal femoral focal defi

Congenital short femur with associated fibular deficiency. abnormalities of the femur vanes from one report to another, but a reasonable assumption is that some abnormality will occur in approximately 50% of cases. The most common will be a variable degree of fibula deficiency (Fig. 2) Congenital femoral deficiency: it is spectrum of femoral deficiency, deformity and discrepancy. CFD can have various component like Knee and hip Joint malformation, mal function, joint instability, muscle contracture, femur bone shortening & rotational deformity, cartilaginous un-ossified bone at the femur etc. fibular hemimelia and ray. Treatment Options for Congenital Femoral Deficiency Rotationplasty The most commonly employed surgical technique is the Van Nes rotationplasty and variations of this technique Congenital femoral deficiency (CFD) is a rare birth defect that is characterized by a short femur, associated with hip and knee deformity, deficiency, or instability. The more severe types were previously known as proximal femoral focal deficiency (PFFD). CFD occurs in about one in forty-thousand births
The two broad treatment patterns have been outlined, i.e. for children with a moderately severe deficiency, the congenital short femur group, and secondly children with a very severe deficiency with either a miniature intact femur, or a true proximal femoral focal deficiency. Ideally, a child with a congenital short femur will be managed by re. Lower limb congenital malformations may worsen with bone growth, depending on the number of bones and growth plates involved. For example, in children with longitudinal fibular deficiency, progressive genu valgum results secondary to lateral femoral condyle hypoplasia. Specific secondary or associated conditions and complication
Instability of the knee is a common finding in patients with congenital limb deficiency. The instability can be attributed to soft tissue abnormalities, frontal, sagittal or rotational deformity of the lower limb and bony dysplasia of the patella or of the femoral condyles. In most of the cases, these pathomorphologic changes stay asymptomatic in daily activity Rotationplasty is a well-recognized reconstructive option of treatment for congenital femoral deficiency (CFD) and limb salvage for lower extremity sarcomas [9,10,11,12,13,14]. Rotationplasty was originally described for treatment of a patient with bone loss from tuberculosis in 1927 [ 15 ] and was popularized by Van Nes for treatment of CFD in.
. CFD is a disease spectrum with varying severity: Some children may only have a minor shortening of the femur; while in the most extreme forms of it, there is a complete. BACKGROUND: Congenital femoral deficiency is an uncommon clinical entity. We report 3 patients who developed avascular necrosis of the hip in the long (normal) leg during longitudinal observation and/or treatment of congenital femoral deficiency This paper considers congenital femoral deficiency and includes an overview of limb bud development and the mechanisms involved in normal growth. The use of ultrasound in antenatal screening and the clinical and radiological features in childhood will be discussed in addition to management including surgical reconstruction and prosthetic use
Congenital femoral deficiency (CFD) refers to a spectrum of congenital (present at birth) malformations of the thigh bone (femur) due to incomplete or abnormal development. CFD may affect one leg (most commonly) or both legs. Severity can range from minor shortening of the femur (appearing normal), to complete absence of much or all of th Hall JE, Bochman D.

Congenital limb deficiency like PFFD, Tibial hemimelia , Fibular hemimelia, Radial club hand Aim of treatment is protection of femoral head from collapse and containment of femoral head in acetabular cavity so with passage of time they can remodel according to shape of acetabular roof. containment can done by abduction hip spica & proximal. Congenital limb amputations and deficiencies are missing or incomplete limbs at birth. The overall prevalence is 7.9/10,000 live births. Most are due to primary intrauterine growth inhibition, or disruptions secondary to intrauterine destruction of normal embryonic tissues. The upper extremities are more commonly affected

Cartilage between the femoral head and greater trochanter is continuous in this 3-months-old, as they develop from one block of cartilage (coronal US). Ilium ( arrow ), triradiate cartilage ( open arrowhead ), femoral head ( asterisk ), greater tuberosity ( crooked arrow. The most common cause of congenital limb amputations are soft-tissue and/or vascular disruption defects, such as amniotic band-related limb deficiency, in which loose strands of amnion entangle or fuse with fetal tissue. Limb deficiencies can be. Longitudinal (more common) Transverse. Longitudinal deficiencies involve specific maldevelopments. In this report, we presented two patients (male, 26 years; girl, 7 years) with congenital femoral deficiency treated with Van Nes rotationplasty. In both cases, the treatment took 1.5 months, after which the patients were mobilized with prosthesis. No complications were encountered within a follow-up period of five years and 1.5 years. . Many children may choose the path of limb reconstruction rather than an amputation (commonly known as a conversion amputation). However, should the limb reconstruction path not deliver the desired goals of the child, family and treating team, then.
Congenital lower limb shortening is a group of relatively rare, het-erogeneous disorders. Proximal focal femoral deficiency (PFFD) and fibular hemimelia (FH) are the most common pathologic enti-ties in this disease spectrum. PFFD is characterized by variable de-grees of shortening or absence of the femoral head, with associate Congenital deformities which result in knee instability are longitudinal deficiencies such as congenital femoral deficiency (CFD) and fibular hemimelia (FH) or tibial hemimelia. Depending on the severity of the deficiency, the instability can be detected in early infancy or later during life, sometimes without clinical significance Proximal Femoral Focal Deficiency. (PFFD) Congenital Femoral Deficiency can lead to a congenitally short femur with different degrees of a lack of formation of the hip and knee joints. In the mildest cases, the hip and knee are properly formed and only the femur is short. In more severe cases, the hip is severely deformed, the knee is unstable.
. The diagnosis and classification have been based mainly on plain radiograph findings. This method does not permit definite classification during the first year of life Congenital femoral deficiency (CFD), also known as proximal femoral focal deficiency, is a rare birth defect that can affect the hip, femur, and knee. The spectrum of deformity can range from mild shortening to a proximal or distal deficiency, or even complete absence of the femur. This chapter is a comprehensive review of CFD, including the history, pathology, classification, and treatment of. Routine ultrasonography can detect congenital femoral deficiency (CFD) and fibular hemimelia (FH), but prenatal detection rate and its relation to deformity severity have never been reported. Whether mothers prefer prenatal diagnosis is also unknown Lengthening for congenital femoral deficiency (CFD) is most applicable in femurs with an intact mobile hip and knee joint irrespective of the amount of discrepancy. Pre-existing knee stiffness is the most functionally limiting factor and should be considered a relative indication for amputation vs. reconstruction Fibular Hemimelia and Congenital Femoral Deficiency (CFD) are two conditions that cause lower limb length discrepancies. This video shows how children like Sierra, Kaitlin, Evan and Liliana are being successfully treated at the International Center for Limb Lengthening, a world-class center for excellence in treating congenital limb deficiencies
. Twenty-eight such patients were identified and were divided into two groups depending on how their condition was managed. Group 1 had opted for the surgical approach of ankle disarticulation (Syme amputation) and the fitting of an above-the-knee prosthesis Congenital femoral deficiency (CFD) has a reported incidence of 2 per 100,000 . 6 The nomenclature for this condition has evolved over time as our understanding of the condition has grown. It has previously been called congenital short femur, however, this name probably represents a small subset of congenital femoral deficiency and does not.
. We report 3 patients who developed avascular necrosis of the hip in the long (normal) leg during longitudinal observation and/or treatment of congenital femoral deficiency A Review of Treatment Experiences To evaluate the treatment of proximal femoral focal deficiency (PFFD), 165 cases of this relatively uncommon anomaly have been reviewed. It was believed that by gathering cases from all of the Shriners Hospitals, reviewing the history and treatment of these patients, and reporting on composite experience, a. Proximal femoral focal deficiency (PFFD) is a subset of a broader group called congenital femoral deficiency. PFFD is also known as congenital proximal femoral deficiency (CPFD) .It is a rare congenital anomaly with an incidence of 1.1-2.0 in 100,000 live births [2,3,4,5].PFFD has a female bias with a male-to-female ratio of 1:2 .Most cases of PFFD are unilateral (85-90%); PFFD is.
Complications may occur with or without treatment, and in some cases, due to treatment also. How is Congenital Short Femur Treated? With modern surgery techniques and expertise, lengthening the shortened femur may be an option for some patients with Congenital Short Femur Internal lengthening device for congenital femoral deficiency and. Introduction: Proximal Femoral Focal Deficiency (PFFD) is a rare congenital anomaly , resulting in varying degrees of femoral hypoplasia that causes limb shortening pelvic abnormalities and reduction in the optimal function of the limb. It may be associated with other osseous and systemic anomalies. The exact aetiology is not known and various theories have been put forth .We present a case of.
Proximal femoral focal deficiency is also known as Congenital Femoral Deficiency (CFD) is a defect from birth. This disorder mainly affects the hip bone and proximal femur.

Visit us or Book an Appointment online The proximal femoral deformity of CFD can occur between the level of the femoral neck to and including the subtrochanteric region of the femur. It is a result of a combination of extra-articular hip joint contractures combined with a bony deformity between the proximal diaphyseal part of the femur and the intertrochanteric or subtrochanteric. BackgroundTreatment of congenital femoral deficiency is a complex, multistage protocol and a variety of strategies have been devised to address joint instability, limb length inequality, and deformities. Despite being an important part of the algorithmic approach to the overall treatment of patients with congenital femoral deficiency, a reproducible, safe, and functional treatment for femoral. Proximal femoral focal deficiency (PFFD) is an uncommon problem, with an incidence ranging from 1 case per 50,000 population to 1 case per 200,000 population.  It is commonly grouped with fibular hemimelia and tarsal coalition in the general category of postaxial limb hypoplasia (PALH). In the past, PFFD was commonly grouped with other disorders, such as coxa vara and short bowed femurs.
Proximal focal femoral deficiency (PFFD) is a rare congenital anomaly characterised by failure of normal development of the proximal femur and hip joint. Significant variability in the clinical presentation and degree of deficiency is common. Current management strategies aimed at improving functional ambulation are largely dependent on the.

Despite being an important part of the algorithmic approach to the overall treatment of patients with congenital femoral deficiency, a reproducible.
PROXIMAL FEMORAL FOCAL DEFICIENCY. Proximal femoral focal deficiency is a randomly occurring congenital abnormality of the proximal femur and hip joint. It is usually unilateral and in 68% of patients is accompanied by fibular hemimelia on the ipsilateral side. About 50% of the patients have skeletal abnormalities of other limbs as well Case: A 25-year-old woman underwent osseointegration surgery as treatment for an amputation that had been performed because of congenital femoral deficiency. The undersized custom-designed implant for the congenitally hypoplastic femur subsequently loosened, causing substantial pain and loss of function Proximal femoral focal deficiency, PFFD, is a congenital anomaly of the pelvis and proximal femur which causes hip deformity and shortening and altered function of the involved lower extremity. The condition may be unilateral or bilateral and is often associated with other congenital anomalies. Embryology
Proximal Femoral Focal Deficiency 19 Transverse deficiencies 20. 2/13/20 6 Types of deficiencies Treatment for congenital limb defects •There are no standardized treatment protocols for congenital limb defects. Treatment options may include: • prosthetics • orthotic Limb Reduction Defects/Limb Deficiencies. The key finding in limb reduction defects - also known as limb deficiencies - is the absence or severe hypoplasia of a limb or part of a limb. Severe hypoplasia is operationally defined as hypoplasia (small size) associated with abnormal shape. Limb reduction defects need to be kept separate from.

It is usually idiopathic, but about 25% of patients have an identifiable etiology. Congenital causes include abnormalities of the GH-releasing hormone receptor and of the GH1 gene and certain central nervous system (CNS) malformations. Acquired causes include therapeutic radiation of the CNS (high-dose. Some acquired amputations are a result of surgical conversions of congenital limb deficiencies, such as ablation of a foot in a child with proximal femoral focal deficiency. More distal sites are at the highest risk for acquired amputations. The average age of acquired amputation was 6.18 years
