A number of other, eponymous, signs of meningeal irritation have been described, of which the best known are those of Kernig and Brudzinski. Meningism is not synonymous with meningitis, since it may occur in acute systemic pyrexial illnesses (pneumonia, bronchitis), especially in children. Moreover, meningism may be absent despite the presence of meningitis in the elderly and those receiving immunosuppression.

Z Orthop 115:716–725 Follow-up Study After Corrective Imhäuser Intertrochanteric Osteotomy for Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis Shigeru Mitani generic mobic 7.5 mg mastercard, Hirosuke Endo, Takayuki Kuroda, and Koji Asaumi Summary. We investigated 28 hips in 26 patients with slipped capital femoral epiphy- sis who were treated by the Imhäuser intertrochanteric osteotomy, with subsequent removal of implants. The mean age at operation was 13 years, and the mean age at the time of the ﬁnal follow-up was 19 years. PTA became restored to within the allowable range of up to 30° in all patients. The limitation of range of motion completely resolved in all patients, and none had necrosis of the femoral head postoperatively. Four patients had a fracture due to bone fragility from long- term traction and bed rest. Chondrolysis developed in only 1 male classiﬁed as an unstable case with an unstable classiﬁed as unstable. The Imhäuser treatment system for mild to severe cases may be said to be reasonable in that the physeal stability is rendered stable by traction and then the PTA is reduced to 30° or less by osteotomy to lessen the severity to mild. So, satisfactory results were obtained both clinically and roentgenographically in short- or midterm outcome. Slipped capital femoral epiphysis, Intertrochanteric osteotomy, In situ pinning, Posterior tilting angle, Physeal stability Introduction Since 1977, we have been treating slipped capital femoral epiphysis at our hospital using the Imhäuser treatment system. In patients incapable of walking or suffering from hip joint pain on exertion, traction is undertaken until irritant pain in the hip joint disappears. This treatment is not intended for reduction of slipped epiphysis but is aimed at attaining ﬁbrous or osseous stabilization of the slippage site. Therefore, the Imhäuser treatment system may be characterized by these two surgical procedures used according to disease Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Okayama University Hospital,2-5-1Shikata-cho, Okayama 700-8558, Japan 39 40 S.
