Abstract

From October 1985 to September 1988 3000 neonatal hips were controlled clinically and by ultrasound. 3% of those needed an immediate treatment. In 45 of these 90 hips there were no directing clinical signs or suspicious hints in the family history or during the course of pregnancy. This means, that these inconspicuous cases would not have got their necessary therapy without the ultrasound-screening. Thus the results of this investigation supports the call for the general ultrasound-screening of the neonatal hip.
