Interest in acetabular version arose from the study of unstable developmental dysplastic hips (DDH). Initial studies and clinical observations described the dysplastic hip as being excessively anteverted. Doubts on this view arose from analysis of complications such as persistent posterior subluxation after acetabular reorienting procedures. Computed tomography fails to determine conclusively whether or not the dysplastic acetabulum is abnormally anteverted. Controversy evolves from different… CONTINUE READING
