A couple of old x-rays and curious about classification.

I thought i'd finally get round to posting a couple of my X-rays from 1983-84. The first one is before any surgery, and the second after a wedge osteotomy to correct my gross coxa vara.

I've always been curious to know which Aitkens classification, and now Paley classication I would be given??
Over here in the UK my orthopaedic consultant went with Gillespie & Torode for classification, Group I, with marked femoral shortening.

I think a page on here with x-rays and/or photos of people with various classifications to illustrate the varying severity/differences of PFFD would be really iinteresting and informative for others.
