Aim: Developmental hip dysplasia is a common disease and if not treated, it may cause secondary hip osteoarthrosis, and this may ultimately lead to total hip replacement in adulthood. Hence, multiple childhood osteotomies have been developed over time to prevent such incidence. The purpose of this study is to determine whether an osteotomy around the hip can delay the total hip replacement surgery and as a second objective evaluate the degree of technical difficulty involved in an arthroplasty, with and without previous osteotomy, in patients with developmental hip dysplasia.

Materials and Methods:This retrospective cohort study involved patients with a history of dysplasia and total hip replacement done between February 2007 and January 2017, comparing patients who underwent osteotomies around the hip (n = 54) and those who did not (n = 135). However, patients diagnosed with Crowe III/IV requiring subtrochanteric ostectomy at the time of the replacement were excluded. The technical difficulty of the procedure was evaluated considering the surgical time and intraoperative bleeding as outcomes.

Results: Overall, 189 hip arthroplasties were analyzed in 173 patients with a history of developmental hip dysplasia, of which 54 had osteotomy around the hip. The average age at which the arthroplasty was performed in patients without previous osteotomy was 55.1 years (p <0.001) compared to patients with previous osteotomy that was 42.2 years (p <0.001). The surgical time and intraoperative bleeding were higher in the group of patients with previous osteotomy and it was possible to demonstrate that this medical history increased the risk of having a prolonged surgical time (5.46 times; p <0.001) and an increased risk of higher intraoperative bleeding (6.08 times; p <0.001).

Conclusion: Patients with osteotomies around the hip required hip arthroplasty surgery earlier and having a previous osteotomy made the overall procedure longer in surgical time and increased intraoperative bleeding.

  Developmental hip dysplasia is a disease with a wide spectrum pathology due to its multifactorial characteristic and its relationship with different populations. The condition may cause multiple or single deformities such as subluxation, instability, dislocation, and dysplasia of the femoral head or/and acetabulum. The persistence of this condition may eventually cause degenerative hip joint disease, limb-length discrepancy with a flexion/adduction deformity, abnormal gait, back pain, postural scoliosis, and ipsilateral genu valgus followed by arthritis of the knee in both childhood and adulthood. In Africa, the incidence in newborn babies with this pathology is 0.06 per 1000, among Native Americans around 76.1 per 1000 are affected[1]. In 1996, 7% of the total population in Colombia were affected by this condition[2].

  In the past, multiple researchers including Tonnis[3], Severin[4], Crowe[5], Hartofilakidis[6] and others, have been trying to classify and develop a treatment methods for this disease. At the end, despite some differences, all agreed in dividing the patients according to the femoral head position. This means, if it is inside the acetabulum (reduced) or if it is dislocated, with or without neo-acetabulum formation.

  Some authors have found a direct relationship of osteoarthrosis with dysplasia and the normal course of the disease [7-9] this trying to determine what leads to joint degeneration and its prevention. Osteoarthrosis could be explained as hip dysplasia compromises the normal development of the acetabulum, femur or both by producing changes in the normal anatomy. The absence of normal forces that form the acetabulum causes a smaller native acetabulum with absence of anterior wall, coxa valga and increased femoral anteversion among other anatomical changes[10]. In the attempt to correct these changes on the normal anatomy by trying to improve the biomechanics of the hip and acetabular – femoral head relation, multiple childhood and adolescent osteotomies have been developed for example: The single innominate, double innominate, triple innominate, spherical periacetabular, Bernese (Ganz), Chiari for salvage and intertrochanteric osteotomies[11]. All these have been established over time to prevent the progression of the dysplasia and changing the natural history of the disease[12].

  However, dysplasic hips without any treatment can remain free of radiological osteoarthrosis for around 27 to 57 years[13]. For both groups of patients (with and without treatment) the outcome remains the same, the need for total hip replacement, what could vary are the conditions under which the procedure is performed. In previous studies, the results of total hip replacement with a history of previous osteotomy have shown a survival rate of 71.2% [14] and a complication rate of 13% [15] with reports indicating increased bleeding and longer surgical times compared to the control group[16-18].

  To our knowledge, no article has evaluated the outcome in terms of age at which the total hip replacement was done in patients diagnosed with developmental hip dysplasia, with and without previous osteotomy. In past studies, osteotomy and no osteotomy groups are compared to determine whether it modifies the survivorship of hip replacements, functional scores and complications[19-21], which are beyond the scope of this article. This paper is attempting to evaluate whether osteotomy can postpone the natural history of the disease. This willenablesurgeons/clinicianstoidentifytherisksregarding the risk of needing transfusion, and in young patients with diagnosis of osteoarthritis give a prognosis of time in which a replacement may be required. Therefore, the objective of the present study is to determine whether the osteotomy delayed the age of total hip replacement and, as a secondary objective, to evaluate the degree of technical difficulty during the arthroplasty procedure, in patients with and without previous osteotomy, taking bleeding and surgical time as the associated factors.

Materials and Methods

  Institutional review board approval from the participating center was obtained before initiation of this study. A retrospective cohort study was designed and conducted among patients operated with total hip replacement between February 2007 and January 2017, with a history of developmental hip dysplasia with osteotomies around the hip and a control group who did not. Prior to the study, approval from the research and ethics committee was obtained.

  The inclusion criteria were: 1. Patient with developmental hip dysplasia with or without previous osteotomy, 2. Age limit: above 18 years, 3. Minimum follow-up of 1 year, 4. Patients classified Tonnis II/III arthritis, 5. Patients with complete medical records including preoperative hemoglobin levels. Patients 1. Who were diagnosed with Crowe III/IV and required subtrochanteric ostectomy during the arthroplasty, 2. Patients lost during follow-up, 3. Patients who received hip arthroplasty at other institutions were excluded. Crowe III/IV patients with ostectomy were excluded from this study as it was considered to be a more complex procedure that cannot be compared with a conventional primary replacement with longer surgical times[18].

  The technical difficulty of the procedure was evaluated by considering the surgical time in minutes and the intraoperative bleeding in milliliters. Intraoperative bleeding was quantified as the total blood loss collected in the cannister and only the fully saturated surgical sponge was accountable for 100 ml.

  The study population was obtained from the hospital records, the first selection was done using the code of the procedure and the diagnosis of dysplasia. Afterwards, the medical records were reviewed one by one to assessif they have met the requirements, 2 researchers worked on the files and the other two in the analysis.This was confirmed using the preoperative AP pelvis radiographs and measurements described in previous reports (lateral center edge angle, Tonnis angle, acetabular version, femoral head extrusion) were used as reference to confirm the hip dysplasia diagnosis [22] at this point the patients were involved in the trial. All patients from both the groups were classified as Tonnis III at the time of surgery to make them comparable in terms of hip arthrosis. The patients without osteotomy (from now on the control group) was matched with the osteotomy group by gender, body mass index and time of surgery (±1 year) with a proportion of one osteotomy patients match with 2.5 control patients (1:2.5) per case. Demographic data, dates of procedure, type of procedure and contact information were obtained from the medical records. A minimum follow-up of 1 year was carried out, that made possible to expand the cohort and monitor any early complications (range 3 year to 10 years).

Surgical technique

  All hip arthroplasties were performed in lateral decubitus position through a posterior approach with cementless acetabular component and an additional screw fixation if required. When insufficient coverage was observed during the cup trial autograft was used to augment and secure the cup. All femoral components used were also cementless devices.

Statistical analysis

  Measures of central tendency and dispersion were obtained for the variables of quantitative nature. The comparisons were made using parametric t-student test or Mann Whitney nonparametric U test based on whether the variable meets normal criteria or not. For the qualitative variables, the frequencies and proportions were obtained, and the comparisons were made using Pearson chi-square test (X2) when the expected values were greater than 5, otherwise the Fisher's exact test was used.

  To evaluate the technical difficulty of the hip arthroplasty procedure, surgical time and intraoperative bleeding were considered. In a review study by Duncan.,et al. they reported values of 97 minutes of surgical time and 448 ml of the intraoperative bleeding [14,16,23,24], these were taken as the cut-off points in our study as the best results reported in the literature. The patients were categorized based on the cut-off point and a univariate analysis was carried out to determine which variables could be potential independent predictors for the patient to have prolonged surgical time and greater intra-operative bleeding. Hence, to determine the variables that were independently associated with the proposed outcomes, a logistic regression analysis was performed including those variables with minimally correlated and significant in the univariate analysis (p <0.250). Odd Ratios and 95% CI are reported, and predictions of success.

  The analyses were performed using IBM SPSS Statistics® (version 21).


  A total of 189 hip arthroplasties were analyzed, some had bilateral hip arthroplasty two stage according to the symptoms. At the end 173 patients, who met the inclusion criteria were identified and further classified into two groups. Table 1 shows the characteristics of the total patient sample. The control group was formed with 135 patients (71%) without osteotomies around the hip, with a proportion of 79% (107 cases) women and an average age of 59 ± 12.1 years old at the time of joint replacement. The right hip was operated in 60% of the patients (81 cases) and 30% had bilateral hip dysplasia (41 cases). The average follow-up of the patients since the joint replacement was 5.9 ± 2.5 years.

In this group, 83% were female (45 cases) with an average age at the time of joint replacement of 42.2 ± 9.4 years. The most frequently operated hip was the left one in 57% of patients (31 cases) and 38.9% had a history of bilateral hip dysplasia (21 cases). The average follow-up of patients since joint replacement was 7.4 ± 3 years.

  The analysis of the joint replacements for each group was performed (Table 3). There was a significant difference in age of the patients with previous osteotomy (42.2 ± 9.4 years) and the control group (55.1 ± 12.3 years; p <0.001). Additionally, there was also a significant increase in the surgical time of patients with osteotomy (136.2 ± 46.7 minutes) versus the control group (102.9 ± 31.9; p <0.001). A statistically significant difference was found between the two groups in terms of intraoperative bleeding, the control group had 489.3 ± 200.1 ml versus 668.5 ± 343.6 ml in patients with osteotomy (p <0.001). Of the 54 cases who underwent joint replacement with a history of osteotomy, 5 patients required removal of some osteosynthesis material. Though patients with previous osteotomy had higher intraoperative bleeding, no differences were found in the pre- and post-operative hemoglobin level or in the requirements of an eventual transfusion.

Technical difficulty of hip arthroplasty with and without prior osteotomy

  The univariate analysis (Tables 4 and 5) determined that factors such as previous osteotomies performed in the hip, the age in which the joint replacement was performed, medical history of bilateral dysplasia and the application of bone graft in the acetabulum to treat bone defects were the potential predictors for the patient to have longer operative times and greater intra-operative bleeding (p <0.250). These variables were included in a logistic regression model for each of the outcomes.

  The logistic regression model determined the effect of the selected variables on surgical time, and it was found to be statistically significant (X2=47.941, p <0.001). The model explains 30.9% (Nagelkerke's R2) of the variance in surgical time and classifies correctly 70.4% of cases. Of the four predictor variables, only three were statistically significant: age (OR = 0.96, CI 95% [0.93 to 0.98], P = 0.025), previous osteotomies (OR = 5.46, CI 95% [2.05 to 14.53], P = 0.001) and bilateral dysplasia (OR = 3.14, CI 95% [1.48 to 6.67], P = 0.003). The area under the ROC curve for this model is 78% (0.78, CI 95%, [0.71-0.84], p <0.001), concluding that it is a predictive model, so the probabilities of presenting a prolonged surgical time were calculated based on the explanatory variables (Table 6).

  While evaluating the effect of the selected variables on higher postoperative bleeding, the logistic regression model was also found to be statistically significant (X2=42.799, p <0.001). This model explains 27.4% variance (Nagelkerke's R2) in postoperative bleeding. Of the four predictor variables, only three were statistically significant: previous osteotomies (OR = 6.08, CI 95% [2.95 to 12.52], p <0.001), bilateral dysplasia (OR = 2.26, CI 95% [1.13 to 4.51], P = 0.021) and the application of bone graft (OR = 5.03, CI 95% [1.46 to 17.57], P = 0.011). The area under the ROC curve for this model is 70% (0.70, CI 95%, [0.61-0.79], p <0.001), concluding that it is a predictive model and hence the probabilities of presenting higher postoperative bleeding were calculated based on the explanatory variables (Table 7).

  The objective of the study was to determine whether an osteotomy could delay the total hip replacement surgery, we found that the average age at the time of the procedure was earlier in patients with osteotomy when compared with the control group. This results are consistent with the report by Migaud.,et al.(55 years vs 57 years) in patients with bone surgery and without bone surgery[19], this does not mean that preservation surgery should be discourage. Previous articles favor the survival of osteotomies[25], but it is proved that is a technically demanding procedure and its results will depend on the experience of the surgeon[26,27], and despite this 70% will progress to osteoarthrosis[28]. In the literatureconversion time of osteotomy to replacement varies from 6 years [29] to 17 years[30], and shorter periods of time (5.9 years) in patients under 40 years[31].

  In this cohort, the control group had an average age at the time of the surgery of 55.1 years (range 24-83 years). This results are consistent with data exposed by Cooperman.,et al.[32] that reports beginning of arthritis at an age of 57 years old in patients with dysplasia without treatment. Hartofilakidis.,et al.[33] describes the natural history of developmental hip dysplasia in relation to osteoarthritis and no treatment, this should be considered the starting point to compare and assess whether or not the development of osteoarthritis is changing in patients with dysplasia who undergo osteotomies. His results are similar to the ones exposed in this paper but he was able to describe the average age of onset of the symptoms at 34.5 years (18-40 years), reach preathritis (stage I) at 37.1 years, degenerative arthritis (stage II) at 43.7 years and severe arthritis (stage III) at 54.8 years and hip arthroplasty done at 51.4 years[33].

  Tamaki.,et al.describes 3 major pillars of hip preservation which are: increasing the joint surface, preserve muscle strength and creating a favorable condition for arthroplasty in the future[34]. These requirements are not always met, maybe due to pelvic osteotomies interrupting or altering the continuous growth of the acetabulum by early closure of the triradiate cartilage and in the case of femoral osteotomies they can lose correction altering the growth plate leaving a late residual deformity[35], which associated with unpredictable ineffective late natural remodeling can increase the severity of the residual dysplasia[36]. These residual deformities once established could lead to a total hip replacement technically more demanding as reported by Haverkamp.,et al. who claimed that one way to assess the difficulty of the surgical procedure is the relationship with time and bleeding[37]. The second objective was to evaluate the degree of technical difficulty in the arthroplasty procedure, measured in surgical time and intraoperative bleeding. This cohort study reports statistically significant differences in bleeding and longer surgical time in the group of previous osteotomies. This finding has been found to be consistent with previous studies on patients with history of Chiari and total hip replacement[23], on patients with previous triple innominate osteotomy (Salter) and posterior hip replacement[16], and on patients with femoral osteotomy as well[38]. Though patients with previous osteotomy had higher intraoperative bleeding, no differences were found in the requirements of transfusion, this could be because these patients were younger and able to cope better with this bleeding.

  This study has some limitations. First, the sample of the osteotomy group is modest but we were able to group them in pelvic, femoral or both, which didn´t influenced the outcomes of the results. Second, it is a retrospective study, it depends on medical records and on information provided by the patients however it was less than 10% for the main variables. The major advantage of this cohort study is that all the procedures were performed by a single surgeon, which allows comparison of the outcomes by avoiding the variability of experience and skills for the evaluation of bleeding and surgical times. Also, the main variable of this study is the age at which the procedure was performed (total hip replacement), a variable that is unmodifiable in the medical records.


  This study proposes the beginning of a research line where the patients can be monitored during childhood and defining factors can be evaluated to overcome the disadvantages of this study. With our results we can aver that patients with osteotomies around the hip required early hip arthroplasty (42.2 ± 9.4 years vs. 55.1 ± 12.3 years p <0.001), and this procedure had longer surgical times (OR = 5.46, P = 0.001) and increased intraoperative bleeding (OR = 6.08, p <0.001). Osteotomies cannot be discouraged as a treatment for childhood dysplasia, but the indicationsof these treatments and the experience and skill of the surgeon must be evaluated[27], since in most cases it is not limited to a single procedure and does not always improve the natural history of the disease.
