All the following are useful in diagnosis of congenital dislocation of the hip except
|D||Galeazzi or Ali’s test.|
a. Slocum test is used for testing anterolateral instability of knee.
b. The Ortolani test is performed by gently adducting and abducting the flexed hip to detect any reduction into or dislocation of the femoral head from the acetabulum.
c. The provocative test of Barlow detects any potential subluxation or posterior dislocation of the femoral head by direct pressure in the longitudinal axis of the femur while the hip is adducted.
d. The Galeazzi's sign is noted when the flexed knees are brought together with the hips in 90° of flexion the side dislocated will be apparently shorter (Useful only in unilateral dislocations)
