Pelvic osteotomy relates to an orthopaedic treatment for developmental acetabular dysplasia of the hip.
The main purpose of pelvic osteotomy is the prevention of early degenerative changes by stabilisation of the hip and redistribution of joint loading. It is obtained by surgical reshaping/remodelling or redirection of an abnormal acetabulum.
Reshaping osteotomy (performed when the triradiate cartilage is open):
Redirectional osteotomy (orientation of the acetabulum is changed by transection of the innominate bone)
- Salter (single innominate osteotomy)
- Sutherland (double innominate osteotomy)
- Steel, Tonnis or Carlios (triple innominate osteotomy)
- Ganz (periacetabular)
