Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is the most common anatomical pathology in newborns. Traditionally, the standard physical exam for newborns includes hip stability testing using the Barlow and Ortolani maneuvers. If the pediatrician detects hip instability, then they are referred for a hip ultrasound—the gold standard for DDH diagnosis.
