Sonography of infant hips for screening and diagnosing DDH and dysplasia has become of increasing importance in recent years in developing countries and is already established as “gold standard” in developed countries. In many European countries today this technique is used as general screening tool for all newborns or infants.
The first part of this book includes the fundamentals of hip anatomy, pathology, epidemiology and aetiology. Futher chapters discuss conventional diagnosis (clinical and/or X-ray) and the superiority of sonography.The core chapter for the scholar of hip sonography is the practical step by step guide on sonography rounded up with hints how to avoid common mistakes. The book explains the new and simpler ABCD system for diagnosis and successful therapy and is therefore indispensable for everyone dealing with infant hip screening, diagnosing and treating DDH and dysplasia.
