View Full Version : asymmetric creases
My bub has just had her 6 week check and the doctor has referred us for an ultrasound to check for congential hip probs. He thinks the odds are really low and is being "over-cautious" but naturally I am now worried! Her hips aren't clicky at all, but she has asymmetic creases which can be an indicator. Has anyone else been through this!!?
We too had to get an ultrasound done on our now almost 8week old bubby for hip problems our pedeatrician picked up at birth.
The dr was again being cautious as her hips didn't feel quite right when she was born.
The ultrasound came back with her left hip fine but her right hip just slightly underdeveloped in bone structure than where it should be at her age.
He wants to recheck it in 6weeks time but seems to think that all will be fine.
She doesn't have the asymetrical thing that you are talking about but chances are everything is fine.
The radiologist actually came out to see us and spoke to us before we even saw the pedeatrician, so we knew there was not too much to worry about which put our minds at ease before seeing the dr.
Goodluck hope all goes well
We also had an ultrasound for "clicky" hips and I was dreading having to have dd in the special harness. Luckily they came back ok.
The ultrasound itself is non-stressful. The technician we had was very quick and gentle getting bub into position. DD was a bit upset only because she wanted to be held instead of laid down, but it wasn't as bad as i thought it might be.
Thanks for all your replies - really appreciated. We had the u/s today and Emily is absolutely fine. Our doc was being over-cautious (which is great).
june05isttimer - good luck with the follow up ultrasound. It sounds like it will be fine though :)
When our baby girl was 6 weeks old they picked up asymetric creases on her aswell,.. we were sent to a specialist who did 2 ultrasounds over a 4 month period,.... She is now 12 months old and we had the final appointment last week where she had an x-ray,.. all is fine,.....her hips have developed normally,..... Better to get it checked out though,..
