In forty-five patients, twenty-three with congenital dislocations and the rest with paralytic or other disturbances, this new displacement osteotomy of the hip joint was done when other iliac osteotomies were considered ineffective. The patients, seven to seventeen years old, were followed two to ten years. Of the fifty-two procedures, forty were satisfactory. Most of the unsatisfactory results were in cases of myelodysplasia, peroneal atrophy, and cerebral palsy.
