In the proximal portion of the hyaline cartilage acetabular roof, between  Fig. 6. 5 Differentiation Between Ossification and Degeneration the proximal perichondrium and the ilium, extra echoes can be found that are artefacts (reverberations) and not structural alterations in the hyaline cartilage. The hyaline cartilage acetabular roof can only be called “echogenic” if the entire hyaline cartilage roof is affected. This is especially important in differentiating type IIIa and type IIIb. During the process of dislocation with the displacement of the cartilaginous acetabular roof, the proximal perichondrium and the adjacent rectus tendon are compressed.

Previously decentred joints: (“secondary dysplasia”) hips that have been treated and have become a type I should be followed up radiologically until the end of growth. For unknown reasons, disorders of growth can occur later. An initially “healed” joint may later develop a secondary dysplasia. Answer: When there is: 1. A neuromuscular abnormality: This results in an imbalance of muscular forces on the hip joint. These forces affect the growth of the socket enormously. With pathological muscle tension the balance of forces in the hip joint An explanation for this phenomenon is partial damage to the chondro-osseous border of the acetabular roof during head displacement.
