Özet

Background: Many authors have reported that the pelvic support osteotomy prevents a Trendelenburg gait by restoring the biomechanics of the abductor muscle in patients with congenital dislocation of the hip. However, we are not aware of any studies in which the hip abductor muscles were examined following pelvic support osteotomy. The purpose of this study was, first, to use magnetic resonance imaging to measure alterations in the length and volume of the gluteus medius muscle after pelvic support osteotomy and, second, to determine which factors influence the results of the Trendelenburg test.
