[From the Introduction] This study serves to define the population at risk for developing slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE). Although epidemiological studies of this disease have been completed, this large sample helps to confirm the earlier work. Moreover, it characterizes the relationship of this sample with previous samples and hence evaluates the contention that the results of other studies on this sample are based on a typical group of SCFE victims.
