The periacetabular osteotomy: angulation of the supraacetabular osteotomy for quantification of correction
Malcorrection of the acetabular fragment in periacetabular osteotomy (PAO) is associated with inferior outcomes. 2-dimensional radiographic parameters are being used for intraoperative verification of a satisfactory result.
