Results: Avascular Necrosis ratio was 19.29% on hips with Salter Innominate Osteotomy, and 8.77% on hips with Pemberton Pericapsular Osteotomy. Salter Innominate Osteotomy  made lower limb discrepency with 0.47 cm mean in all patients. There were 17 general complications on hips with Salter Innominate Osteotomy (SIO) (14.91%) and 9 general complications on hip with Pemberton Pericapsular Osteotomy (PPO) (7.89%). As looking for general complications, SIO/PPO ratio were 1.8 (17/9).
