Ectopic bone formation around the poly-L-lactide (PLLA) screw head in eccentric rotational acetabular osteotomy for hip dysplasia was investigated. A total of 174 hips in 165 patients with hip dysplasia were consecutively treated with eccentric rotational acetabular osteotomy. Average age at the time of operation was 37 years. Acetabular fragments of 123 patients (132 hips) were fixed by Kirschner wires (K-wire group), and 42 hips in 42 patients were fixed with PLLA screws (PLLA group). There… CONTINUE READING
