Developmental dysplasia of the hip - temporal evolution with double diaper treatment

Case contributed by Dr Mohammad Osama Hussein Yonso


Suspected left dislocated hip in the clinical examination.

Patient Data

Age: 2 months
Gender: Female

The acetabulum is poorly formed with an increased acetabular angle on the left in keeping with developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH).             


4 months old using double diaper as treatment

X-ray shows no significant development.


Follow up at 6 months old using double diaper as treatment.

The acetabular index has tended towards normal compared with the previous x-ray.                             


8 months old using double diaper as treatment

The left acetabular index is now within normal limits.                                     

Case Discussion

In this case of hip dislocation/DDH, the result of using a double diaper treatment was very good with normalization of the acetabular index
