In developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) diagnosed after walking age, primary intervention in the form of open reduction with or without femoral and innominate osteotomy is the mainstay of treatment. Even in those where the primary reduction has been successful, many will require Further Corrective Surgery (FCS) at a later date. This review article discusses the factors which are important in predicting the need for FCS.
