Oral #27: Emma Christensen – Effect of Pelvic Positioning and Measurement Method on Anterior Center Edge Angle

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Andrew Anderson

The anterior center edge angle (ACEA) measurement is used for the diagnosis of hip dysplasia. The aim of this study was to quantify both the difference in and the sensitivity of patient malposition on bone edge and sourcil ACEA measurements along with the reliability of these measurements. Pelvic tilt malpositions had the largest effect on the ACEA followed by rotation. Bone edge measurements were also found to be more reliable.
