The Indian habits of squatting and sitting cross-legged require mobile and preferably painless hip joints. Because of the stiff hip, a person may have to change his way of life which may not be interesting to him thus to an unhappy and miserable life. The total hip joint replacement has revolutionized the surgery of painful and stiff hip conditions in the Western countries, especially for osteoarthritis of hip. However it is very well known that this costly operation is not feasible in all the parts of our country, and for infective conditions of the hip joint. Due to the above reasons it was considered worth-while to report a critical analysis of the results of resection angulation osteotomy as advocated and practised by Milch (1955, 1959, 1962, 1963) and Batchelor (1949). This procedure is of special significance in economically under developed countries of the world where infections of the skeletal system are a common occurrence.
