OBJECTIVES. To clarify the use of ultrasonography by determining the frequency of developmental dysplasia of the hip among breech-presented Chinese neonates in Hong Kong. DESIGN. Prospective case series. SETTING. Regional hospital, Hong Kong. PATIENTS. All breech-presented Chinese neonates born during January 2008 to June 2009 were included (except premature neonates). They were examined clinically from birth till the age of 1 year. Ultrasound of the hips was performed at the age of 2 weeks, and X-ray of the pelvis at the age of 1 year. RESULTS. A total of 209 breech-presented neonates were born during the study period; 110 neonates completed all necessary investigations and follow-up. Among the latter, there were three neonates with developmental dysplasia of the hip warranting treatment, which amounted to a frequency of 2.7%. CONCLUSION. Developmental dysplasia of the hip among breech-presented Chinese babies is only slightly less common than in corresponding populations in other regions in the world. Since early diagnosis is important, ultrasonography screening in high-risk cases such as those with breech presentation may be useful.
