Summary. Abduction orthoses are used in the treatment of hip dysplasia in newborns and infants. These devices force ca. 1000-1100 flexion of the hips and 30-600 abduction. In this position, the femoral head assumed a concentric position in relation to the acetabulum, which is a basic precondition for normal hip development. This article presents the orthoses most commonly used id Poland to treat development hip dysplasia. Flexion-abduction orthoses are an excellent replacement for the plaster casts formerly used in these cases. The selection of orthosis depends on the attendant physician’s experience and the type of defect. The treatment of developmental hip dysplasia is charged with the risk of nutritional defects of the femoral head, and thus requires caution. Orthotic treatment is suitable only for children to age 6 months, since at a later age it can disturb hip development. Lack of parent cooperation can cause complications or lack of treatment effect.
