Abstract: Ultrasound screening of hips in newborns and infants is important for early diagnosis of developmental dysplasia of the hips (DDH).The aim of this study is to analyze the results of ultrasound screening of the hips in newborns and infants and to establish the importance of ultrasonography in early diagnosis and treatment of DDH. Analysis of the results of ultrasound screening of the hips in our study showed that there is a significant number of dysplastic hips. Treatment of dysplastic hips depends on age of the patients.
Keywords: dysplasia of the hip (DDH), ultrasound hip, early diagnosis and treatment of DDH.
