What is Congenital Hip Dysplasia?

Congenital hip dysplasia (CDH) is an abnormality of the hip joint meaning the hip joint has developed in such a way that the thighbone is unbalanced in the hip socket. The ligaments within the hip joint are often stretched and loose, although the severity of this condition does vary with each individual case. This medical condition occurs when a baby is born with an unstable hip due to abnormal formation of the hip joint during their early stages of fetal development.

Newly born babies are given a physical examination to screen for congenital hip dysplasia promptly after birth. If detected during the first six months after birth, the condition can be positively treated and your child’s hip joint can be properly realigned. However, this is not the case for older children who will often need to undergo different correctional surgery and be fitted with a leg cast for a period.

If your child has been a victim of medical negligence while pursuing or getting treatment for congenital hip dysplasia, you may have a claim for compensation. At Turner White Solicitors, our expert birth injury claim solicitors can provide best legal advice, support and guidance throughout the claiming process.

Birth Injury

Pregnancy and childbirth is a truly ecstatic jubilant feeling, and mostly takes place without any significant difficulties. Alternatively, birth injuries do occur occasionally during pregnancy, labour or after childbirth, giving rise to various complications. When Physicians and nurses fail to follow correct measures/address complications or take too long to recommend a C-section, serious birth injuries may take place. In some circumstances, this can result in lifelong health complications for the child, who may need around-the-clock care. These errors may amount medical negligence or birth injury negligence. During childbirth, it is likely that the mother or the baby can be injured due to medical negligence. This can happen due to mistakes made by medical professionals or due to medical equipment that may be faulty or inaccurate which causes professional to come to wrong conclusions. Although it is very difficult to avoid medical negligence completely since anyone can make a mistake, it can however be reduced significantly.

Medical Professionals are usually qualified with many levels of training provided to them before they start treating patients in hospitals. However, sometimes it is possible for them to make mistakes when it comes to childbirth. Childbirth is a very delicate operation where professionals must be extra careful in order to successfully deliver the child without harming the mother or the baby. But preventing such medical neglect should be at the forefront in the medical profession and should never be allowed to take place. Many birth injury claims are also against the NHS hospitals and can be very common.

Medical Professionals should be aware of and should consider any medical conditions the mother has before the delivery of the child takes place. Doctors should monitor the progress of the preganancy and observe whether both the mother and baby are okay whilst the final stages of the pregnancy progresses.
