Two-hundred and fifteen children with 288 unstable hips have been treated by splintage during the first nine months of life. A simple treatment protocol was followed and the aim was to test the safety and reliability of this protocol as well as of the Von Rosen splint and the Pavlik harness. A vascular necrosis occurred in 3.8% of the splinted hips. Despite splintage, a proportion of children needed operation at a later date.

The indications for trochanteric advancement and the results obtained in the late treatment of Perthes' disease and of congenital dislocation are discussed. Nine hips treated after Perthes' disease had satisfactory results, in that all were improved; but in eight hips with deformity arising from congenital dislocation the outcome was less favourable.
