Clin Orthop Relat Res. 1977 Jul-Aug;(126):167-9.

Prevention of the development of the typical dislocation of the hip.


Applying a diaper and baby clothing without changing the naturally flexed leg requires education of mothers and nurses. Retaining the flexed position which is present from the very beginning of postnatal life, markedly reduces the incidence of click sign. A program on neonatal diapering, clothing, and general care, reduced the incidence of congenital dislocation of the hip in 3 to 7 months old infants in a sample population of 200,000.
