Aim:: To assess the accuracy of clinical coding of developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) operations Method: 106 children underwent surgery for DDH at our turst from 1997 to 2018. Our coding department was sent a list of patients and operation dates and asked to tabulate data on what each operation had been coded as. We compared what each operation was coded as with the procedure actually performed (as per operation notes, clinic letters and intra-operative fluoroscopy images).
The following databases were searched:
EMBASE, MEDLINE, PsycINFO, BNI, CINAHL,
