Abstract

Dislocation or subluxation of the hip is considered as the most common hip problem in patients with Down syndrome. Recommended treatment of chronic dislocation treatment is open reduction combined with femoral and/or pelvis osteotomies. We report a Down syndrome child with chronic hip dislocation who was successfully treated with adductor tenotomy and closed reduction, which has not been reported previously.
