BACKGROUND The prediction of acetabular development after reduction of developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is important to ensure optimal timing of acetabuloplasty and to avoid unnecessary surgery. The objective of this study was to find early and reliable predictors of future acetabular dysplasia in the hips reduced by overhead traction (OHT). METHODS We retrospectively reviewed 45 hips in 40 patients treated by OHT for DDH without additional procedures. The average age at the time of… CONTINUE READING
