Screening of dysplasia of the hip in Denmark

The screening programme for developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) in Denmark is based on clinical examination and selective ultrasound examination of children with established risk factors for DDH.

Universal screening for DDH is cost-efficient and may eliminate late diagnosis of DDH and minimise the need for corrective surgery. In this review, we propose developing a new universal screening programme for DDH in Denmark.
