Pneumonic: Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip


Just wanna share with all of you, my fellow orthopaedics colleagues.

My study group (actually Dr.Sabarudin) has came out with this pneumonic for the radiological sign or lines that we should look for, measure and evaluate in children with Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip. It will be easier for us to recall all the measurements if we remember the pneumonic. Here goes:

          WHAT SOS V

          W     Wiberg Centre-Edge Angle
          H      Hilgenreiner line
          A      Acetabular Index
          T      Tear drop sign

          S      Soursil
          O     Ossification of the head of femur
          S      Shenton line

          V      Von Rosen line

Okay guys. Enjoy the pneumonic. I will share more info/pneumonics afterwards.
