The Kaplan Intersection Check is a combination of the Shoemaker line and the Kaplan intersection. The inspection is a measure of whether the big tyran is rising. Can diagnose the femoral head, femoral neck shortening, flower willow lesions, femoral neck fractures. The examinee is supine, the two pulps are placed in the middle position, and the upper anterior superior iliac spine is at the same level. The lateral extension line from the bilateral large trochanteric tip should be crossed above the umbilicus or umbilicus. Called Kaplan intersection.

Basic Information

Specialist classification: growth and development check classification: physical examination

Applicable gender: whether men and women apply fasting: not fasting

Analysis results:

Below normal:

Normal value:
no

Above normal:

negative:
The result of the test was negative. The femoral head has a large trochanter without displacement.

Positive:
The result of the examination is positive, that is, the lateral extension line from the bilateral large trochanteric tip should cross above the umbilicus or umbilicus, and the intersection of the two lines is called the Kaplan intersection. If one side of the large trochanter shifts upward, this point is located on the opposite side or under the umbilicus, indicating a femoral head, a willow lesion, a femoral neck fracture, and the like.

Tips: To relax when checking, you should face it positively and actively cooperate with the inspection. Normal value

The result of the test was negative. The femoral head has a large trochanter without displacement.

Clinical significance

Abnormal result

The result of the examination is positive, that is, the lateral extension line from the bilateral large trochanteric tip should cross above the umbilicus or umbilicus, and the intersection of the two lines is called the Kaplan intersection. If one side of the large trochanter shifts upward, this point is located on the opposite side or under the umbilicus, indicating a femoral head, a willow lesion, a femoral neck fracture, and the like.

People who need to be examined have abnormal pain in their legs.

Positive results may be diseases: femoral head fractures, femoral condylar fractures

Inappropriate crowd: None.

Taboo before inspection: no special contraindications.

Requirements for inspection: Check the feelings of relaxation, should face positively, and actively cooperate with the inspection.

Inspection process

Not suitable for the crowd

There are no specific taboos.

Adverse reactions and risks

Generally no complications occur.
