We reviewed the treatment outcome in 14 hips of 7 patients who were diagnosed as having bilateral developmental dislocation of the hip (DDH) after walking age and could be followed up until they were at least 14 years of age. Based on the results of two-directional arthrography of the hip, closed reduction was performed in 2 hips, and open reduction was performed without osteotomy in 12 hips. The final radiographic evaluations were made according to the Kalamchi and MacEwen classification and Severin classification. The mean age at the initial visit was 1 year and 9 months (range, 1 year and 5 months to 3 years). The outcome was satisfactory for one hip in Group Ⅰ and 2 hips in Group Ⅱ according to the Kalamchi and MacEwen classification, and in 83% of the Severin Class Ⅰ and Ⅱ hips. Arthrography was useful for identifying asymmetry, demonstrating the usefulness of a treatment strategy based on arthrography of the hip.
