Single-stage surgical correction of a bilateral acquired coxa vara deformity in a young woman


A 23-year-old female-treated patient of osteomalacia and secondary hyperparathyroidism with hypophosphatemia presented with a 5-year history of bilateral groin pain and stiffness of both hips and difficulty in walking. Plain radiographs of the pelvis showed bilateral coxa vara deformity. She was managed surgically by a single-stage bilateral subtrochanteric corrective osteotomy with the internal fixation. After the osteotomy healing at 3 months, the patient was pain free and walked comfortably with an increased range of hip motion.
