The Pavlik harness in the treatment of congenital dislocating hip: report on a multicenter study of the European Paediatric Orthopaedic Society.

The Pavlik harness in the treatment of congenital dislocating hip: report on a multicenter study... The results of functional treatment using the Pavlik harness in congenital dislocation and congenital dysplasia of the hip in children aged less than 11 months were examined by an EPOS study group. This study was conducted on 3,611 hips in 2,636 patients for a period of 1-9 years after treatment. The reduction rate was 92% in grade Tonnis 2 and 3; the healing rate was 80%. In children with dysplastic hips, the healing rate was 95.35%. Avascular necrosis of the femoral head was observed in 2.38%. The Pavlik harness is designed for outpatient treatment if the parents are compliant. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of pediatric orthopedics Pubmed
