Global HELP and COTI present Theddy Slongo, MD, the Chairman of the AO Pediatric Expert Group and Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgeon at Inselspital Bern.

In this video, Doctor Slongo explores how developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) can interfere with the vasculature of the femur, leading to avascular necrosis (AVN). Several procedures are discussed for how to avoid AVN for varying degrees of severity for DDH.
