Objective: The main purposes of the present study were to analyse the long-term clinical and radiographic results of femoral varus derotation osteotomy performed in a group of patients with the diagnosis of Legg-Calve-Perthes (LCP) disease and to compare the effects of age, lateral pillar classification, radiographic stage according to Waldenstrom's classification, and the amount of varisation obtained on long-term results.
