CROWE IV hip dysplasia treated by THA combined with transverse sub-trochanter osteotomy to balance functional leg length discrepancy: a prospective observational study [post]

2019 unpublished
There are various malformations in the pelvises and femurs of hip dysplasia patients, consequently leg length discrepancy(LLD) can often become one of the most common post-surgical complications in CROWE IV hip dysplasia patients. To our knowledge, there are few researched focus on relationship between acetabular prothesis position and postoperative LLD while optimal leg length balance strategy for CROWE IV hip dysplasia patients remains unclear. In this paper, we measured the factors that
