  • Introduction

    Cases of developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) still occur after walking age because of late or missed diagnosis. The treatment of choice for DDH after walking age is surgical procedure, which has been a challenge in the orthopedic field. The aim of this study was to assess the clinical and radiographic results of surgical treatment of DDH after walking age. The study included 13 patients (15 hips) who underwent surgeries at the age of 1 to 7 years with open reduction, femoral osteotomy, and pelvic osteotomy procedures in Dr. Hasan Sadikin General Hospital Bandung from 2012-2015. The final clinical outcomes at the end of the follow up period (mean = 22 months) was excellent in 5 patients, good in 7 patients, fair in 2 patients, and poor in one patient. The final radiological results presented Class I (excellent) in 8 patients, Class II (good) in 5 patients, Class III (fair) in one patient, and Class IV (poor) in one patient. The number of patients that had satisfactory outcome was 10 patients clinically and 11 patients radiologically. It is concluded that the functional outcome of DDH patients surgery in walking is mostly good.
