Abstract

The authors present a study carried out in 1990 analyzing the results of ultrasound screening of the infant hip in order to evaluate possible dysplasia. They stress the already unquestionable role of ultrasound screening as a valid, sensitive and useful device in the diagnosis of congenital dysplasia of the hip and emphasize that the earlier the examination is carried out, the easier it is to begin suitable treatment rapidly and with positive results. They recommend that ultrasound screening should be carried out by an orthopaedist in order to further shorten diagnosis and treatment times.
