AIM: Femoral derotation osteotomy (FDO) can be conducted either proximally or distally to correct internal rotation gait (IRG) and increased anteversion in children with cerebral palsy (CP). Previous studies with limited numbers of participants have presented comparable short-term static and kinematic outcomes for both techniques. The objective of this retrospective multicentre study was to verify this thesis with a larger number of patients. METHOD: In total, 119 children with CP and IRG were included after matching the groups on preoperative mean stance hip rotation: 67 intertrochanteric (proximal group) FDO (average age at surgery 9y [SD 3y]); 52 supracondylar (distal group) FDO (average age at surgery 12y [SD 3y])...

OBJECTIVE Many patients undergoing spinal fusion for neuromuscular scoliosis have preexisting neurosurgical implants, including ventricular shunts (VSs) for hydrocephalus and baclofen pumps (BPs) for spastic cerebral palsy. Recent studies have discussed a possible increase in implant complication rates following spinal fusion, but published data are inconclusive. The authors therefore, sought to investigate: 1) the rate of implant complications following fusion, 2) possible causes of these complications, and 3) factors that place patients at higher risk for implant-related complications...

All patients with hypertonic cerebral palsy undergoing Bernese periacetabular osteotomy (PAO) between 2005 and 2014 were reviewed. Clinical and radiographic parameters, including the cerebral palsy hip classification and anterior and posterior wall indices were collected to assess acetabular reorientation. Twenty (83%) of 24 procedures involved the correction of posterolateral acetabular insufficiency and were 'anteverting PAOs'. All 20 experienced improvements in radiographic indices. Eleven (58%) of 19 PAOs in ambulatory patients were performed in the setting of other multilevel orthopedic surgery...

BACKGROUND: Concurrent prophylactic femoral varization osteotomy (FVO) for stable hips has been performed in patients with cerebral palsy (CP) undergoing hip reconstructive surgery for the contralateral displaced hip. However, there is currently a lack of studies investigating the outcome after the prophylactic FVO in stable hip. This study investigated the outcomes after FVO in stable hips with CP and influencing factors. In addition, this study compared the outcomes with those after hip reconstructive surgery in the contralateral displaced hip...

The purpose of this study was to retrospectively investigate changes in gait patterns after single-event multilevel surgery in children and adolescents with bilateral cerebral palsy. Three-dimensional instrumented pre- and postoperative gait data of 12 patients were compared to data of 12 healthy control subjects using principal component analysis to reduce the dimensionality of kinematic and kinetic gait data and detect gait differences. The differences between pre- and postoperative data and between postoperative data and data of control subjects were calculated using a linear mixed model...

INTRODUCTION: The diagnostic proof of fungal infection in preterm infants is difficult. Antifungal treatment (AFT) is often initiated empirically when infants with suspected infection do not improve despite broad spectrum antibiotic therapy. It was the aim of our study to determine the rate of exposure to empirical AFT in a large cohort of very low birth weight infants (VLBWI) of the German Neonatal Network (GNN) and to address associated risks and outcomes. METHODS: The epidemiological database consisted of n= 13...

BACKGROUND: The Hybrid Assistive Limb (HAL® ) is an exoskeleton wearable robot suit that assists in voluntary control of knee and hip joint motion. There have been several studies on HAL intervention effects in stroke, spinal cord injury, and cerebral palsy. However, no study has investigated HAL intervention for patients with cerebral palsy after surgery. CASE PRESENTATION: We report a case of using HAL in a postoperative patient with cerebral palsy. A 15-year-old boy was diagnosed with spastic diplegia cerebral palsy Gross Motor Function Classification System level IV, with knee flection contracture, equinus foot, and paralysis of the right upper extremity with adduction contracture...

BACKGROUND: Simultaneous motion of the knee and ankle joints is required for many activities including gait. We aimed to evaluate the influence of surgery involving tendons around the knee on ankle motion during gait in the sagittal plane in cerebral palsy patients. METHODS: We included data from 55 limbs in 34 patients with spastic cerebral palsy. Patients were followed up after undergoing only distal hamstring lengthening with or without additional rectus femoris transfer...

AIM: The prevalence of severely symptomatic deformities of the first metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint in adolescents with cerebral palsy (CP) requiring arthrodesis is unknown. Recent literature regarding these deformities is limited. We studied the presentation of severe, symptomatic deformities of the first ray in a large population of children and adolescents with CP and their association with gross motor function, CP subtype, and other musculoskeletal deformities. METHOD: We identified 41 patients with CP and a symptomatic deformity of the first MTP joint, managed by arthrodesis, from a large population based database over a 21-year period...
