Case example. Pre-operative AP X-Ray (left image) showing major migration of the right hip, discrepancy between right and left VFO was 5 cm. Post-operative pelvic AP X-Ray (middle images) shows good restoration of centre of rotation, VFO discrepancy was 8 mm. Functional LLD measured on post-opeartive EOS imaging (right image) was 18 mm. Knee flexion can be observed on the lateral EOS image (left knee flexion =18°, right flexion =3°), difference in femur length = 2.5 cm
