Congenital Dislocation (Dysplasia) of the Hip in an Infant - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
Accurately depicts congenital dislocation of the hip in an infant (hip dysplasia) with subsequent formation of a false joint above the acetabulum (hip socket). Shows infant with dislocated femoral head with a close-up of the normal anatomy of the hip joint for comparative purposes. The third illustration shows the dislocated hip and the under-developed, deformed acetabulum. The final image shows the soft tissues surrounding the joint filling in to form a false joint.
