Arch Bone Jt Surg. 2013 Sep;1(1):31-4. Epub 2013 Sep 15.


Background: The prevalence of hip dysplasia is 1 in 1000. Several pelvic osteotomy methods have been developed to prevent early osteoarthritis, such as triple osteotomy. In this study we are going to introduce our new technique that was done on 4 patients with favorable short-term results.

Methods: Four patients underwent triple osteotomy and fixation using a reconstruction plate and early weight bearing was started.

Results: The Harris Hip Score, limb length, center-edge angle, and acetabular inclination showed improvement.

Conclusion: This modified technique is suggested for corrective surgery on adult dysplastic hips.
