Musculoskeletal Disorder ( Review)

Description

  • Disorders related to abnormal development of the hip that may develop during fetal life, infancy, or childhood; in these disorders, the head of the femur is seated improperly in the acetabulum, or hip socket, of the pelvis
  • Degrees of developmental dysplasia of the hip

Assessment

  • Neonate: Laxity of the ligaments around the hip
  • Infant
    • Shortening of the limb on the affected side (Galeazzi’s sign, Allis’ sign)
    • Restricted abduction of the hip on the affected side when the infant is placed supine with knees and hips flexed
    • Unequal gluteal folds when the infant is prone and legs are extended against the examining table
    • Positive Ortolani’s test: Ortolani’s maneuver is a test to assess for hip instability. The examiner abducts the thigh and applies gentle pressure forward over the greater trochanter. A “clunking” sensation indicates a dislocated femoral head moving into the acetabulum.
    • Positive Barlow’s test: The examiner adducts the hips and applies gentle pressure down and back with the thumbs. In hip dysplasia, the examiner can feel the femoral head move out of the acetabulum.
