1. A technique of subtrochantric osteotomy to correct coxa vara employing end-to-side apposition and fixation with an infant-size blade-plate has been presented.

2. This method is technically easier than methods used previously.

3. Adequate, controlled correction has been obtained and maintained in all cases. In view of the short time these patients have been followed, no conclusions concerning long-term results can be drawn. Further clinical and roentgenographic follow-up is indicated.
