ABSTRACT
A 23-year-old female presented with pain in the left hip. Radiological examination showed developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) combined with acetabular retroversion and posterior wall deficiency. Findings in the physical examination were coincident with femoroacetabular impingement. At surgery, we performed curved periacetabular osteotomy concomitant with arthroscopic labral repair and osteochondroplasty, simultaneously addressing dysplastic acetabulum and femoroacetabular impingement. The final follow-up examination at 18 months showed satisfactory outcome with the D'Aubigne and Postel hip score of 17/18. In addition to accurate diagnosis, the arthroscopic procedure for associated intra- and peri-articular problems seems to help improve the surgical outcome of periacetabular osteotomy performed for patients with DDH. Level of evidence IV.
