In 388 congenital hip dislocations arthrography was used to indicate the safest form of treatment. Immediate reduction in the squatting (human) position of plaster cast (Fettweis, Salter) was followed by 3.4% of avascular necrosis of the femoral head, while plaster casts after preliminary traction showed 14.8% necrosis and unsuccessful closed reductions preceeding open reductions 11.8%. Further investigations demonstrated the influence of mechanical factors. A higher percentage of avascular… CONTINUE READING
