axial deviation

axial deviation

An axial deviation is a conformational fault of a limb where the axis of a limb deviates in part or as a whole from the ideal. The ideal or correct axis of a limb is assessed using imaginary lines drawn from anatomical land marks such as the point of the shoulder or the buttock to the ground. An axial deviation may be visible from the front, from the side or from behind.
