Slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) is the most common hip disorder affecting adolescent children . The etiology is not fully understood but thought to be multifactorial, related to both biological and biomechanical factors . SCFE occurs when the epiphysis of the proximal femur slips in relation to the metaphysis through the growth plate, causing pain, disability and potential long-term sequellae from joint incongruity. The treatment for SCFE typically involves some form of stabilization procedure using pins, screws, bone grafting, osteotomy, or casting.
