Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip
Synonyms: Congenital dislocation of hip, CDH, Developmental dysplasia of the hip, DDH, dysplasia of the hip
Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) was formerly referred to as congenital dislocation of hip. DDH is now the preferred term to reflect that DDH is an ongoing developmental process, which is variable in presentation and not always detectable at birth. Developmental dysplasia of the hip refers to a range of developmental hip disorders, from a hip that is mildly dysplastic, concentrically located, and stable, to one that is severely dysplastic and dislocated.
