We reviewed the cases of three patients with an unstable grade-III slipped capital femoral epiphysis treated between 2001 and 2003. Clinical records and imaging studies were reviewed for patient’s history, anatomic features of the slip, definitive treatment and clinical outcome. The duration of the follow-up ranged from twenty-four to fourty-eight months.
