Abstract:
In a retrospective study of 12 cerebral palsy patients with 17 hips treated for subluxation, clinical and radiographic results of psoas and adductor releases were reviewed. With an average follow-up of 4.05 years, the functional ability was improved in 3 spastic quadriplegics and 3 diplegics and maintained in 6 other patients. The CE-angle and femoral head coverage did not change significantly. The AC-index improved significantly (p = 0.01).
