The term ‘developmental dysplasia of the hip’ (DDH) includes a wide spectrum of hip alterations: neonatal instability; acetabular dysplasia; hip subluxation; and true dislocation of the hip.

Surgical correction of idiopathic developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is one of the most challenging problems in pediatric orthopedic surgery. The treatment goal is to achieve a stable, congruent and concentric hip joint as
Patients with untreated developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) may eventually develop secondary osteoarthritis, beginning in early adulthood. Arthroplasty is the main treatment of choice. In some countries, DDH is the main cause
Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH), also known by the preceding term congenital dislocation of the hip (CDH), is one of the most prevalent congenital malformations.

DDH has a wide spectrum of anatomical
Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) has a reported incidence of 3–4% in children under the age of 6 months. Actual dislocations are reported in 0.1–0.2% ( 1 ). If undiagnosed or untreated, consequences can be severe
Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is a very common disorder in young children. In the Netherlands, the incidence is 3.7% in children up to 6 months of age ( 1 ). The vast majority of these cases represent centered dysplasia
