Each organ of our body has a different importance in its own field. Like all health problems, our orthopedic problems compare us to a number of obstacles. For this reason, we included Hip Dysplasia (hip dislocation), which is one of the orthopedic problems, in our interview. In order for this situation not to lead to bad consequences in the future or to minimize the problem in cases that cannot be fully treated, what should be done in the process starting with childbirth, what precautions should be taken here, Turkey Medicals, “We have received the answers to all these questions for you from our valued specialist, Professor Doctor at Antalya MedicalPark Hospital.”

1- What is pediatric screening, what benefits does it provide, what is the importance of a US apparatus (probe) examination, at what time is it appropriate for the baby to be performed?

Pediatric screening is a systemic examination from the pediatric orthopedic direction from head to toe. The benefits are as follows: first of all, it frees pediatric specialists and other physicians from medical, conscientious and legal responsibility. After that, it provides early diagnosis of many problems that require orthopedic expertise, such as radio-ulnar synostosis, scapula alata, congenital vertical talus. Especially in developmental hip dysplasia, the US examination is important for early diagnosis. The appropriate time for a US examination is between 3-6 weeks.

2- Should this examination be carried out for babies at risk, are there any undetectable conditions even if the necessary precautions are taken, could there be problems in the future

Pediatric Orthopedic examination of at-risk infants should definitely be performed. The Pediatric Orthopedic condition of the child is notified with a report. This report determines the current state of affairs.There may be changes in the child’s developmental process later, as well as problems that may cause symptoms in the future of pathologies that exist at that time but are impossible to detect (such as tethered cord, syringomyelia or balanced vertebral anomaly, mild forms of CP).

3- Which babies are at risk of Developmental Hip Dysplasia (Hip Dislocation)?

Girl babies, Babies with a Positive family History, reverse arrival during childbirth, (breech arrival) parental kinship and babies with accompanying anomalies are in the risk group.

4- Should the families of babies with Hip dysplasia be investigated, to what degree of closeness should the investigation be conducted?

In addition to parents and siblings, two- and third-degree affinities should also be investigated. Grandparents, grandparents, uncles, uncles, aunts, hala and their children should be investigated.

5- What conditions are the symptoms of hip dislocation on physical examination?

Asymmetry in the leg line, limitation in the opening of the hips, suspected shortness of the leg, asymmetry in the shape of the head, curvature of the neck, deformities such as standing deformities, crooked feet are symptoms of hip dislocation.

6- Who provides awareness about orthopedic problems, what issues and who guides families?

The orthopedic specialist ensures public awareness in order to prevent many deceptive beliefs and practices that exist among the public. It provides systematic information to the family about the points that need to be taken into account in terms of the orthopedic development of the baby.It provides warnings and recommendations for the development of the musculoskeletal system.
