Title: A New Look at the Incidence of Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis in New Mexico
Author: Benson, Eric; Miller, Miryam; Bosch, Patrick; Szalay, Elizabeth
Subject: Slipped capital femoral epiphysis
Epidemiology
Abstract: Past epidemiological studies demonstrated a nearly fivefold lower incidence of slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) in New Mexico compared with Connecticut. A recent study demonstrated some regional variability but did not address this earlier finding. We sought to reexamine the incidence of SCFE in New Mexico to improve the understanding of the epidemiology and ultimately the disorder itself.
