Bilateral DDH and acetabular dysplasia.
Developmental dysplasia of the hip or DDH occurs when a baby’s hip is loose or dislocated. It's more common in female babies than males. In this condition, the hip joint develops abnormally. The hip joint made up of femur and pelvic bones, the proximal part of the femur is shaped into a ball that fits into the socket of the hip bone which is called the acetabulum fossa.
