    This study evaluated the validity of the traditionally recommended screening protocol for developmental dysplasia of the hip in infants.


    Study children (n=1968) underwent a standardized screening examination.


    The incidence of developmental dysplasia of the hip was,%. The sensitivity of the test protocol was 86%, the specificity was 82%, and the predictive values of positive and negative tests were 16% and 99%, respectively.
