Slipped femoral epiphysis

Author(s): Emily Jane*

SCFE (Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis) is an adolescent growth plate condition in which the femoral head shifts (“slips”) relative to the remainder of the femur. While the head of the femur remains in the hip joint’s cup, the remainder of the femur shifts. The femur is the thigh’s long bone. There is a “ball” at the end of the femur that attaches to the hip (called the femoral head). The acetabulum is a “cup” made up of the pelvic bones that houses the ball. The epiphysis is the end of the head that connects to the remainder of the femur during growth, and the growth plate connects it to the rest of the femur.
