Abstract

Down syndrome is the most common chromosomal disorder and is accompanied by hip osteoarthritis in approximately 28% of patients. This paper reports a case of hip arthrodesis as a treatment for severe hip osteoarthritis in adolescent Down syndrome patients. When performing surgical treatment of patients with Down syndrome, it is necessary to take a comprehensive approach that considers not only the medical point of view, but also the psychological and economic requirements of the patient and their social environment.
