PMID: 33956671.


A 34-year-old woman with developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) presented with chronic left hip pain related to a femoral head cyst. The patient strongly preferred a joint-preserving option. Periacetabular osteotomy (PAO) has shown reliable options for managing DDH, and femoral head fresh osteochondral allograft (FOCA) can be performed for cysts. We performed these procedures concomitantly for the first time. At 1-year follow-up, the patient had functional, pain-free motion and high satisfaction.
