Coxa valga is increased in femoral neck-shaft angle tp more than degrees. Like coxa vara, coxa valga could be congenital or acquired. It can be associated with genu varum and lead to increased stress and early degenerative changes in the Medial Towards the median plane.
Testicles lie medial to thigh. The commonest cause of progressive coxa valga is cerebral Palsy Palsy means weakness. It is used to denote motor weakness due to nerve lesions.

Coxa valga can be. It gives an appearance of elongation of the neck on AP radiographs. This appears due to femoral antetorsion which gives the appearance of increased neck-shaft angle. vala
In neuromuscular disorders such as cerebral Palsy Palsy means weakness. Femoral neck shaft angle is also called also the caput-collum-diaphyseal Coca angle or the femoral angle of inclination. Infants are born with approximately degrees of coxa valga and this gradually drops to the adult normal of to degrees by age 8 years under the influence of the abductor force and walking. Most of this correction actually occurs by the time children are 2 to 3 years of age.
The direct cause of the coxa valga is the abnormal force on the Proximal Nearer to the trunk. Shoulder is proximal and elbow is distal. This pattern is seen in tubular bones. Intramembranous bone is without physes and grows and then stops as controlled by genetic script.
The ability for remodeling the femoral neck-shaft angle begins to diminish substantially in late childhood. By the adolescent Growth Growth includes the processes [Modeling is also part of bone growth] that causes increase length and girth before the closure of to epiphyseal plate closure [There is gain in length after epiphyseal vala closure]. Varus osteotomy is not indicated in these cases vaoga may even result in poor development of the hip following operation.
When required, it can be treated vaea corrective osteotomy. Rotational correction for anteversion if present should also be considered.
Varus derotation osteotomy and angled blade-plate fixation is quite effective.
