Anything you can tell me about femoral anteversion?

Anything you can tell me about femoral anteversion?

Persistent Femoral -: Anteversion (pfa) is due to continuation of the position the baby was in the uterus throughout the pregnancy, ie, all curled up, with the hips flexed and internally rotated.

Surgery: Femoral anteversion is a rotational abnormality if the hip that causes the person to walk with the foot pointed in. In an 18 year old the only choices are to live with it or have surgery.
