ABSTRACT
Abstract  We retrospectively reviewed 68 hips in 62 patients with acetabular dysplasia who underwent curved periacetabular osteotomy. Among the 68 hips, 33 had acetabular retroversion (retroversion group) and 35 had anteversion (control group) preoperatively. All hips were evaluated according to the Harris hip score. Radiographic evaluations of acetabular retroversion and posterior wall deficiency were based on the cross-over sign and posterior wall sign, respectively. The clinical scores of the two groups at the final follow-up were similar. In the retroversion group, 12 hips had anteverted acetabulum postoperatively. The posterior wall sign disappeared in these hips, but remained in 21 hips with retroverted acetabulum postoperatively. Among the 21 hips with retroverted acetabulum, posterior osteoarthritis of the hip developed postoperatively in five hips. When performing corrective osteotomy for a dysplastic hip with acetabular retroversion, it is important to correct the acetabular retroversion to prevent posterior osteoarthritis of the hip due to posterior wall deficiency.

    We encountered a rare case of severe subluxation of the femoral head after the performance of rotational acetabular osteotomy to treat osteoarthritis of the hip, secondary to acetabular dysplasia. The subluxation was corrected by performing varus and flexion osteotomy.

    Background: Hip dysplasia is the most common cause of secondary osteoarthritis (OA). Periacetabular osteotomy (PAO) or rotational acetabular osteotomy (RAO) has been used as a joint-preserving procedure. However, the patient selection criteria are not clearly defined. Questions/purposes: Based...

    Implantation of a femoral stem in a dysplastic femur poses many problems. Most common abnormalities are excessive anteversion and valgus angle of the femoral neck. This makes it impossible to use conventional stems. Suitable options are distally fixed stems with small metaphysis or proximally...

    Background: Although periacetabular osteotomy (PAO) for developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) provides conceptual advantages compared with other osteotomies and reportedly is associated with joint survivorship of 60% at 20 years, the beneficial effect of proper acetabular reorientation with...

    Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) in cerebral palsy (CP) is very rare, and very little clinical data is available. We have analysed the results of open reduction of the hip (Howorth), acetabuloplasty (Salter, Pemberton), pelvic osteotomy (Chiari) and femoral osteotomy in the treatment of...
