Abstract

Slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) is a common adolescent hip disorder. This article reviews the major controversies in SCFE as of the year 2005. These are (1) treatment of the unstable SCFE, (2) the role of osteotomy in the treatment of SCFE, (3) prophylactic fixation of the contralateral hip in children presenting with unilateral SCFE, and (4) methods of fixation in the very young child with SCFE.
