The inclusion criterion for this study was hip osteoarthritis secondary to hip dysplasia, defined as a lateral center-edge angle of Wiberg [15] of less than 20[degrees] on anteroposterior pelvic radiographs.
The patients included in the study were those who had unilateral DDH, received complete radiological follow-up until they were at least 10 years old, did not have any type of avascular necrosis of the femoral head during the follow-up period, and had both an intact Shenton's line and a center-edge angle of Wiberg (5) greater than 15[degrees]at the latest follow-up.
