Abstract


The results of treatment of 54 children (69 joints) at the age of 2.5-6 years with congenital dislocation of the hip have been analyzed. The technology of closed dislocation reposition using the Ilizarov fixator with reconstruction of articular components has been applied. The relations in 67 joints have been restored by closed technique. Dislocation recurrence was observed in four cases (5.9%), aseptic necrosis of the femoral head – in five cases (7.4%). Clinicoradiographic evaluation was carried out according to McKey and Severin criteria: the proportion of good results made up 82 % and the poor ones – 10.5%.
