Abstract

The labral degeneration from acetabular dysplasia is a common reason for young adult patients to undergo total hip arthroplasty (THA). Pre-operatively, it is important to be aware of the individual pelvic parameters to minimize post-operative complications such as dislocation, impingement, and edge-loading. In this study, we quantify the patients’ pelvic tilts and relate them to the severity of dysplasia to see if there is a compensatory relationship between the two values.
