Postgraduate Orthopedics Series: Hip Disorders in Children is a seven-chapter text that reviews the disorders of the developing hip. This book discusses the broad spectrum of mal-development in the structure of femur and the classification of femoral dysplasia and prognosis of the hip. The first chapters cover the general observations upon cause, nature, and conditions of congenital dislocation of the hip; management of congenital dislocation beyond the neonatal stage; application of Hey Groves-Colonna capsular arthroplasty; management of primary subluxation; and pyogenic arthritis of infancy. The subsequent chapters deal with the pathogenesis, classification, and treatment of Perthes’ disease. The discussion then shifts to the fractures of the neck of femur in children and the analysis of slipped upper femoral epiphysis. The last chapters are devoted to the sundry disorders of the soft tissues and the disorders of the hemopoietic system. The book can provide useful information to pediatricians, orthopedics, students, and researchers.
