The effect of functional splinting on mild dysplastic hips after walking onset
BMC Pediatr. 2005 Jun 15;5(1):17.
CONCLUSION: Considering the characteristics of this study, there seems to be no strong rationale supporting the use of an abduction device in growing children. As no significant difference between treatment groups is apparent, a future controlled prospective study on splinting effects can be considered ethically allowed.
