Purpose. To evaluate the practical significance of the ultrasound Dopplerography of the hips in children with congenital hip dislocation and Legg-Calve-Perthes disease.
Materials and methods. The results of the hip ultrasound Dopplerography are presented in 58 children with congenital hip dislocation (n=30) and Legg-Calve-Perthes disease (n=28) 1-6 months after surgery. The results of the study were taken into consideration for prescribing medicinal therapy; and the authors’ technique of hydrodynamic cuff therapy used as well.
Results. The examination in the long-term periods after the treatment performed evidenced of improving the femoral head blood supply.
Conclusion. The complex and individual approach to the hip pathology diagnosing in children using ultrasound Dopplerography of blood flow during orthopedic treatment can be used as a method for preventing dysplastic coxarthrosis.
