The condition is most commonly associated with a subtle abnormality of the hip joint at birth (congenital hip dislocation) and usually remains undetected for many years. Acetabular dysplasia is a form of developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) often referred to in the adolescent and adult population 5.
Frontal The left acetabulum has a steep contour and is shallow. Left femoral head has lost its normal rounded shape and is flattened with a short femoral neck. Plate and screws are seen following a previous left proximal femoral osteotomy. Reconstruction of the hypoplastic acetabulum in cementless arthroplasty of the hip. We describe a new operative technique for reconstruction of deficient acetabular bone which allows the implantation of the socket of a total hip replacement at the level of the true acetabulum.

Aug 06, · A standing pelvic radiograph is the most useful investigation to diagnose adult acetabular dysplasia. (Figure A) Radiographic measurements – 3 useful methods may be employed (4): Shenton’s line. (Fig B) Acetabular index of the weight-bearing zone (Tonnis). Angle is formed between a line parallel to weight-bearing dome and line parallel to. Acetabular dysplasia, or hip dysplasia, is a disorder that occurs when the acetabulum (hip socket) is shallow and doesn’t provide sufficient coverage .
