Developmental dysplasia of the hips: a three-year cross sectional study of hip screening in Leeds

Hurley A., Bhattacharya S., Ford G., Shore H., Johnson K


This retrospective review considers the number of infants screened for developmental dysplasia of the hips (DDH) as per national guidance, and the incidence of actual pathology at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust over a three-year period. Approximately 10% of infants required an ultrasound scan; 3% of scans showed evidence of DDH. Of those diagnosed with DDH and referred to orthopaedics, 93% were actively treated with a harness or surgery. The significance of ‘clicky’ hips in DDH is discussed.
