METHODS: The study included 82 children who presented with intoeing gait. 3D-CT data taken between 2006 and 2014 were retrospectively reviewed. FAA was measured by 3D-CT.

The following 4 lines were determined from the CT scans: 1 through the center of the femoral head and neck; 1 through the lesser trochanter and the center of the femoral shaft; 1 as a tangent to the dorsal part of the distal femur, just above the gastrocnemius insertion; and 1 as a tangent to the posterior condyles...
