This online video of Cabrini's GP Lecture is available for GP's via https://praxhub.com, at no cost. The lecture entitled Common paediatric orthopaedic issues- an update is designed to assist the GP in recognising early detection of DDH, Identifying risk factors, differentiating between physiologic postural variations and pathologic orthopaedic conditions and understanding detection and management of scoliosis in children.

Relevance to General Practice

Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip(DDH) refers to a spectrum of disorders of hip instability producing dislocation and imaging features of poor acetabular development. DDH results from a combination of environmental and genetic factors. Associated gene defects occur in the transforming growth factor beta superfamily necessary for normal bone and joint development. Highest risk (in babies) in breech presentation and positive family history. Prevalence is higher in firstborn and females. Early detection is vital. Left undiagnosed it’s one of the leading causes of early-onset arthritis of the hip and possibly, the need for a hip replacement; it is a significant public health issue (in Australia). 
Scoliosis is a word used to describe the most common type of spinal curvature. Severe scoliosis is a painful and debilitating condition that tends to worsen with age. About three children out of every 1000 have scoliosis that need medical treatment

  • Identify risk factors, clinical examination and radiographic findings of DDH
  • Differentiate between physiologic postural variations and pathologic orthopaedic conditions
