New page[edit]

I created this page since the only existing page is focused on the canine condition. It can thus not be linked to any human medical pages like e.g. "congenital conditions". I'll work on improving this page as my time permits. I'm not that computer savvy and it will take me some time to get stuff to work and to link references. (I put this on the talk page twice now, but it didn't show up, so it may come up double for you.)

If you should have any x-rays or pictures, please add them. If you can create a "disambiguation page" please do so. I'll leave the "canine" page as is, but in the long run s.o. might want to edit that. If you have non-proprietory info that is relevant here, plse. feel free to add it or a reference. If you'd like to clean up the formating or any broken links, please feel free. Should you be able to link other languages but Dutch and German, please do.

I tried to put the "example" for the neonatal exam in a box, but couldn't get it there. If you know how to do that and come across this page, plse help.

Edit revisions[edit]

Some yoyo keeps revising edits. I'd appreciate if you do find things you'd like to take out, that you'd leave a message as to why!!! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Lisa4edit (talkcontribs) 03:04, 28 March 2008 (UTC)


Hey, you left me a message about finding some images to fit in here. Thats no problem, I'll see what I can find. I think its a very good idea to split the article away from canine hip dysplasia. Heather 17:03, 31 March 2008 (UTC)Glitzy_queen00

my professor said that the kid in the red clothes labeled Pavlik harness is not a Pavlik harness, it is for something elseMeteislam (talk) 19:18, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

The baby in red is wearing an abduction brace, not a pavlik harness. ~cwest —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:18, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

I've updated the page to say that the baby in red is wearing a Bock harness and added a link to the Otto Bock website page about the hip harness. Fishdry (talk) 12:44, 16 August 2011 (UTC)

Additional Information[edit]

I have done a lot of research that I think would be helpful to fleshing this article out further. I also have x-rays and images that would help to illustrate this further. Hip Dysplasia is most often found in the first few months of life but on those occasions when it is not found until later there is a whole area for adults that is not covered here. I have additional information on symptoms, diagnosis, treatment (both non-surgical and surgical). How do I share this. I added it to this article and it got pulled down in 10 minutes with very little explanation as to why. Can anyone help?

Hi, I had the same problem in the beginning. The "powerful guardians of knowledge" are taking offense with ordinary citizens stepping on their territory. There may have been something minor like e.g. you used underscore to underline something. My suggestion would be to either dump the stuff either here or on my talk page and if I can't move it I'll try to get s.o. else to do it. Also make sure there are no links to any pages that sell I ripped all my references out after a bot got me and am now slowly putting them back in one by one. I'll have a look if I can revert it and put your contributions back in. Sorry to hear of your troubles. As far as I'm concerned this is such a broad issue that whatever we put here can never be enough. I'm working on adding "history" and "background/development" section. If you have any info or sources to that extend either leave a message here or on Lisa4edit talk. It'll probably take me a while longer to get more stuff going. I'm very happy s.o. else is showing an interest. Thanks. Lisa4edit--Lisa4edit (talk) 02:47, 21 April 2008 (UTC) I had a look at your edit and some of the stuff you added was already included in other places. Take care not to directly address the readers. "You" or "your surgeon" are not considered "encyplopedic language". I had left a comment on your talk page, but it disappeared. --Lisa4edit (talk) 01:18, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

Ortolani and Barlow[edit]

When I started this page only the Ortolani page was up. The Barlow one was missing. Now that they are both up, I'm going to take the descriptions of the maneuvers off this page. The only thing I'm worried about is that those 2 pages are going to be short-lived because they don't cover exhaustive subjects. If you notice that either or both pages have been discontinued please put the text back here from a "page history". --Lisa4edit (talk) 01:18, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

Table for "incidence"[edit]

What do you guys think about putting a table somewhere at the bottom with reported incidence figures. The one that's in now is from Australia. That's not going to apply to everyone.

Country or ethnic population Reported incidence Increased risk as reported Remarks source
Israel 5.5% - sonographic study [1]
Australia 1:60/1:240 - inital/1 week follow up [2]

I'd be willing to dig up studies and start a table, but not if s.o. else is going to rip it off the page. I hope once we got something going there will be others with more recent or local data contributing. Either leave a comment on my talk page Lisa4edit or right here. --Lisa4edit (talk) 01:58, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

Sounds like a good idea to me. --Arcadian (talk) 11:36, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
Thanks I'll go with it then. --Lisa4edit (talk) 15:37, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
Update: It turned out to be more difficult that I thought because different studies are using different definitions. Results are all over the map. I'll see if I can get some kind of structure. Everyone agrees it's more common in some populations than in others, but the details seem to be rather murky. If I can get this done it's likely to take a while. Anyone willing to lend a hand plse. leave a message Lisa4edit (talk) 08:24, 10 February 2009 (UTC)


I added this phrase, but am not quite happy with the wording: "Hip dysplasia is considered to be a multifactorial condition, that means that several factors are involved in causing the condition to manifest." I also have another reference, which may be more accessible because it's a university link, on the other hand those are prone to disappear when the U rearranges their site. I'd like to keep the genetics out of this phrase because there seem to be cases, e.g. breech, where there is no direct genetic component. Thanks. At first glance I looked at it and thought that's not it. Then I read it again and I think the new organization makes sense. --Lisa4edit (talk) 07:22, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

NB: My child was delivered naturally, and her Apgar scores were 8/10 and 10/10. It was soon discovered, however that despite being healthy in every standard measurable way, both her femurs dislocated during birth. That was 28 years ago. Today I know that I have Hypermobility Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, and that I have passed this genetic disorder on to her in an autosomal dominant fashion. Sources: and (talk) 03:02, 20 April 2016 (UTC) thank you.


I'll probably have a good start on the "history" ready somewhen next week. But what should the headline be. "History" in medicine means patient history or sometimes etiology. "Hip dysplasia throughout human history" is a bit long. Do the template and style gurus have any ideas or rules? --Lisa4edit (talk) 07:22, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

Stem Cell edit revision[edit]

I've taken out the addition made by to assist in firmly anchoring the artificial material in the bone bed when the osteotomy is made "Unless s.o. can explain to me what osteotomy has to do with it. What is described in the first part of the sentence is prosthetics, although osteotomy sometimes is a part of the procedure, putting the term here is misleading. Please leave a comment if you don't agree or have a better idea. Lisa4edit (talk) 07:06, 31 December 2008 (UTC)
