The article offers information on various studies conducted by researchers regarding pediatric orthopaedics. It mentions that Stevenson and colleagues examined the risks and effects presented by developmental dysplasia of the hip. It states that the rates of success of the two brace treatment strategies such as the treatment executed with Pavlik harness and ultrasound hip monitoring which are utilized for Ortolani-positive hips were analyzed by V. T. Swaroop and S. J. Murabak.
