No sensation to pain: Hip dysplasia means the hip is not fully seated within the hip socket. This increases your risk of hip joint breakdown and injury. You may have this condition and never know about it or it can eventually lead to severe arthritis and pain.
Dr. Peter Ihle
Orthopedic Surgery 54 years experience
Decreasing incidence: Hip dysplasia should b diagnosed by early exam as a new born on physical examination confirmed then by x-rays. Early treatment is very effective. It's usually found in females ; in the left hip or bilaterally. Declining dramatically since i started practice. There r no symptoms, but late walkers, ; a shorter appearance of a leg can tip one off. B sure newborns r examined shortly after birth.

A 45-year-old member asked:

Will previous dysplasia affect my pregnancy? Will a previous cryosurgery affect my pregnancy?

No: Cryosurgery probably does not affect the integrity of the cervix. Certain other procedures for cervical dysplasia such as cone biopsies or leep may rarely compromise the integrity of the cervix. Previous low grade dysplasia should not affect a pregnancy. High grade dysplasia in pregnancy should be evaluated with colposcopy as early as possible in the pregnancy.
A 45-year-old member asked:

Will I have a difficult labor due to my bony pelvis?

2 doctor answers6 doctors weighed in
Dr. Neeoo Chin
Fertility Medicine 40 years experience
Yes: Certain pelvic bone configurations can make vaginal delivery more difficult. If the sacrum, tail bone area, and pubic bone area are not at a certain distance apart, then the baby's head will not fit through. Also the position of the presenting baby's head can make vaginal delivery impossible. Hence the term "trial of labor" becomes all the more important.

Hip can slip out: For reasons unclear some infants are born with a loosness about the hip joint that permits the big ball of the upper leg to slip out of the cup like socket. Drs check for this at birth & well checkups.After 3 mo the ligaments tighten & detection is harder.Some are picked up as walking starts. Tight swaddeling with legs extended may incerase risk & girls & breach babies have higher risk.

Whether flu shots can be given in the hip?

2 doctor answers9 doctors weighed in
Dr. Danny Proffitt
Family Medicine 43 years experience
Yes: The flu shot is given usually in the deltoid (upper arm) with a short needle in the muscle itself. It could be given in the buttock as long as it is given in the muscle with a needle long enough to reach the muscle and you are sure it is in the muscle. Easier to get in the upper arm and you don't have to drop trow!
