Special Issue "Hip Disorder in Children and Adolescents: Diagnosis and Surgery"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 1 September 2024 | Viewed by 765
Hip disorders might be congenital, presenting at birth, or they might develop during early and/or late childhood. Although they all affect the same anatomical district, they are very different at clinical presentation, ranging from being almost asymptomatic to being very painful. In many cases, as in developmental dysplasia of the hip, they can be silent or mildly evident with an aspecific presentation on clinical examination. In other cases, as in Perthes disease, SUFE and FAI, they can be symptomatic. As such, the diagnosis of hip diseases might be challenging, but prompt and proper planned surgical treatment is particularly important.
This Special Issue of Children aims to highlight the most recent research findings related to this topic. Specifically, the present Special Issue welcomes original or review papers which will focus on the diagnosis, treatment and surgery of pediatric hip diseases to increase our understanding of these conditions and standardized or newly available treatment solutions, as well as sharing knowledge about incompletely understood and controversial areas in this field.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.
Prof. Dr. Nicola Portinaro
