The factors which determine the rate and amount of acetabular growth in congenital dislocation of the hip are ill-understood. A prospective radiological study has been devised in order to assess the influence of the age of congruity, femoral anteversion and neck/shaft angles on acetabular growth. To be included, the children must have reached at least 8 years of age. Those with associated congenital abnormalities and subluxation were excluded, as were those who had operations for acetabular… CONTINUE READING
