Post-operative scar on the upper left leg (side view) of a 33-year-old woman following an operation when she was 6 years old. The treatment involved the use of 'broomstick' plaster cast (not seen) to keep her legs apart and maintain her hip joints in their correct positions. Such treatment often follows the surgical correction of a bone disorder.
