INTRODUCTION:: The Ganz periacetabular osteotomy (PAO) is a well-accepted surgical intervention for hip dysplasia. In the adolescent population it is performed in patients who are skeletally mature with symptoms related to acetabular dysplasia. Redistribution of stresses through the hemipelvis after PAO can lead to a fracture at the ischio-pubic junction (IPJ). METHODS:: This is an IRB-approved, retrospective analysis of adolescent patients treated with a PAO for acetabular dysplasia from 1999 to 2012 at a single institution. Radiographic measurements were performed to include the lateral center-edge angle, Sharp acetabular index, and acetabular index of the weight-bearing zone.

Patients over the age of 21 at time of surgery and those with
