The authors report their experience in the surgical treatment of the sequelae of congenital hip dysplasia, more specifically, 125 arthroplasties performed in 116 patients, with specific reference to the technical difficulties encountered and the various surgical methods used. This review suggests that prosthetization yields a high percentage of good results (77%) and constant remission of pain. Nonetheless, joint function, particularly when motion was severely compromised before surgery, or when dislocation was very severe (Crowe grades III and IV), is not always restored.
