[Multicenter Belgian study of the results of total arthroplasty for persistent congenital hip dislocation].

The SO.B.C.O.T. proposed a multicenter study of the results of total hip replacement performed in Belgium for treatment of severe congenital dislocation. Eleven departments with about 30 surgeons contributed to this retrospective analysis, in which cases treated in different centers with various techniques are reviewed. Difficulties in data collection are discussed. Owing to the variety of data, the article is divided in 2 sections: an inquiry or descriptive analysis of congenital dislocation of the hip treated in Belgium between January 1972 and December 1987; the midterm results achieved by different techniques.
