The Nelaton line is a test for the connection of the ischial tuberosity and the anterior superior iliac spine for the diagnosis of hip varus, hip dislocation, and femoral neck fracture. Nilaton line measurement considerations: 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.

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 big mega vertex did not move.

Positive:
It is diagnostic to move the apex of the large trochanter up more than 1 cm above this line. Found in hip varus, hip dislocation and femoral neck fracture.

Tips: Check your relaxation, you should face it positively and actively cooperate with the inspection. Normal value

The result of the test was negative. The big mega vertex did not move.

Clinical significance

Abnormal result

The test result was positive, that is, the examination side was upward, the hip was flexed at 20°, and the connection was made through the ischial tuberosity and the anterior superior iliac spine. If the apex of the large trochanter moves up more than 1cm above this line, it has diagnostic significance. Found in hip varus, hip dislocation and femoral neck fracture.

People who need to be examined often have unusually painful people when they sit down.

Positive results may be diseases: hip dislocation, congenital hip varus

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

The lateral position was measured, the lateral side was examined, and the hip was flexed by 20°. The line was connected through the ischial tuberosity and the anterior superior iliac spine. If the apex of the large trochanter moves up more than 1cm above this line, it has diagnostic significance.

Not suitable for the crowd

There are no specific taboos.

Adverse reactions and risks

Generally no complications occur.
