Turkey takes first place in the world. In the researches, it was determined that the high incidence is due to arson. Arson is traditionally applied in Eskimos, Japan and Turkey.
In developed societies, this problem is treated by regular health screenings and examination of each newborn. In our country, not giving births in hospital and not evaluating the hip of every born child still causes developmental hip dislocation to be an important orthopedic problem and disability. The incidence is reported to be 0.1-0.2% and it is 4-5 times more common in girls than in boys. With this ratio, we take the first place in the world. In the researches, it was determined that the high incidence is due to arson. Arson is traditionally applied in Eskimos, Japan and Turkey. This practice, which originates from our old habits, is intended to ensure that the legs and arms of the babies are smooth, but in modern medical practice this is not true and there is no place to swaddle babies to prevent leg curvature.
Let's say no K
If possible for early diagnosis of all babies born after birth; if this is not possible, the hip examination should be performed for macadic birth, girls, multiple births, and babies with hip dislocation in their families, which we consider as risky groups. Hip dislocation can be performed by specialist doctors in the clinic, but some babies cannot be diagnosed in this way.
We recommend that hip ultrasound be routinely applied to all infants, especially during neonatal and early childhood. Because children diagnosed with hip dislocation in the early period (such as plaster, bandage) are recovered by non-operative methods, and surgical treatment is absolutely necessary when late diagnosis is made (especially after walking age). In conclusion, developmental hip dislocation is a preventable disease. Let's give up our old habits and say no to self-esteem. Let our newborn baby be treated by ultrasound, which is a very inexpensive, short-term and painless procedure, and prevent injuries.
