DEVELOPMENTAL HIP DYSPLASIA (DDH)
Developmental hip dysplasia is the most common hip disorder in the pediatric population, with 1-3% of all newborns and is responsible for 29% of primary hip replacements in people up to the age of 60 years. This disorder includes 2 types: stable dysplasia and dysplasia connected with subluxation or dislocation. It is more common in girls than boys. There are many risk factors for DDH. The most common are: genetic, sex, foetal positions (breech position), floppy joints and sudden legs extension during birth.
