Abstract

1. Detection of early slipping of the capital femoral epiphysis permits the simplest satisfactory form of treatment,-namely, nailing in situ.2. The earliest manifestations of slipping become obvious when roentgenograms, taken by a standard technique, are compared with anteroposterior and lateral roentgenograms of "normal" hips of corresponding osseous maturation.
