DDH (Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip or Congenital hip dislocation) is one of the most severe and frequently occurring diseases of children’s locomoto system. This disease arises when dysplasia of the hip joint, especially dysplastic acetabulum takes place.
There are three degrees of severity of congenital hip dislocation:
1. Predislocation (hypoplasia of the tegmen of acetabulum; but there is no dislocation of femoral bone, because its head is located in the middle of acetabulum).
2. Subluxation (except hypoplasia of the tegmen of acetabulum, there is also slight expressed displacement of the head of the femoral bone (thigh lateroposition).
3. Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip is the most serious degree of dysplasia of the hip joint. The head of the femoral bone absolutely loses touch with acetabulum and exceeds its bounds toward external side and upward. The child permanently limps because of the shortening of the diseased leg. This shortening is the result of hip dislocation; the length of the lower extremities remains equal.
Timely administered therapy can not only put the child on his legs, but also prevent disability.
