Ultrasound screening DDH by prof.R.Graf

Preventive medical examination of hip joints according to R.Graf.

In 1978 Prof.R.Graf introduced ultrasound examination for diagnosis of hip joint and developed aprecise division and principles of treatment. Thus, it allowe dfor the detection o fany irregularity in the development of the acetabulum during the first days of a child’s life.

Early diagnosis and appropriate therapy helped him completely eliminates urgerie scaused b yCDH. This method is simple, cheap and effective, as I was able to realize during the semi-annual scholarship program in the hospital of Prof. R. Graf in Stolzalpe, where I had studied and later became a lecturer,as well as during multiple personal contacts to this day.
