Analysis of the results of ultrasound screening of the hips in newborns and infants showed that there is a significant number of dysplastic hips.
The pubo-femoral distance decreases with Pavlik harness treatment for developmental dysplasia of the hip in newborns
TLDR
The PFD decreased significantly after DDH treatment using the Pavlik harness in newborns, and showed significant correlation with the femoral head coverage improvement.
Establishing reference values for the pubofemoral distance in normal infant medial hips by ultrasound
TLDR
PFD values increased with age, but were not significantly influenced by laterality or gender, and provide detailed information that can support follow-up of infants treated for DDH.
