Pediatric Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip

Clinical Practice Guideline on the Detection and Nonoperative Management of Pediatric Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip in Infants up to Six Months of Age

Clinical practice guidelines (CPG) provide evidence-based recommendations for current orthopaedic diagnostic, treatment, and postoperative procedures. Multidisciplinary clinician work groups and AAOS staff work together to synthesize published research with the aim of providing a transparent and robust summary of the research findings for a particular orthopaedic disease topic.

Appropriate Use Criteria: Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip

Appropriate use criteria (AUC) provide treatment recommendations on a patient-specific level using evidence from AAOS clinical practice guidelines, along with clinician expertise and experience. A multidisciplinary clinician writing panel creates realistic patient profiles who may present with a particular orthopaedic disease in a clinical setting. A separate multidisciplinary clinician voting panel uses a modified Delphi method to rate the appropriateness of various procedures for those patient profiles.
