Current efforts for prevention of hip dysplasia are primarily focused on early detection and early intervention to avoid long-term consequences of neglected hip dysplasia. True prevention efforts would eliminate the disorder before it develops. Better prevention may be possible by decreasing postnatal environmental factors that influence the development of hip dysplasia. This article reviews the natural history, prevalence, and etiology of hip dysplasia along with current methodologies for early diagnosis and possible considerations for prevention of neonatal hip instability and adult acetabular dysplasia.
