Die angeborene Hüftdysplasie und Hüftluxation im Kindes- und by Professor Dr. Dietrich Tönnis (auth.)

By Professor Dr. Dietrich Tönnis (auth.)

Seit mehr als a hundred Jahren beschäftigt sich die Orthopädie mit der ange­ borenen Hüftluxation. Die Literatur zu diesem Thema ist kaum mehr überschaubar. Dennoch wird unser Wissen sowohl in den Grundlagen wie in der Therapie durch neue Untersuchungen ständig erweitert. Im deutschen Sprachraum gab Kaiser 1958 das letzte ausführlichere Buch über die angeborene Hüftluxation heraus, und Schlegel lieferte 1961 einen umfangreichen Handbuchbeitrag. Im englischen Sprachraum erschien 1978 die Monographie von Coleman und 1982 die von Somerville. Tachdjian brachte 1982 ein Buch über die Hüftluxation heraus, an dem forty four Autoren mitgearbeitet hatten. Das vorliegende Buch hat sich zum Ziel gesetzt, einen Überblick über unseren gegenwärtigen Wissensstand zu bringen: Grundlagen, Dia­ gnostik, konservative und operative Behandlungsmethoden und ihre Indikation. Dabei wurde versucht, auch die Entwicklung von den An­ fangen bis zu unserem gegenwärtigen Stand zu verfolgen. Viele Autoren schildern die Diagnostik und Behandlung der angebo­ renen Hüftdysplasie und Hüftluxation nach bestimmten Altersgrup­ pen. Uns erscheint es richtiger, nach dem arthrographischen Befund und dem Schweregrad der Veränderungen individuell vorzugehen. Deshalb treten die Behandlungen der verschiedenen Altersstufen hier weniger in den Vordergrund.
