Medial Approach Open Reduction hip (MAOR)



Medial approach open reduction (MAOR) was first described by Ludloff in 1908. Several variations have been described. This technique is a modification of the original with tenodesis of the ligament teres as described by Torode (JPO 2008). This operation is typically utilised for patients presenting between 6 and 18 months of age.
