Abstract

The first report on treatment of hip contractures in cerebral palsy was published in 1880.1 Lateral migration of the hip (subluxation or partial dislocation) occurs in 30-60% of children with cerebral palsy who are not walking independently at 5 years.2-5 Its clinical course has been well documented, including its effect on function (such as pain affecting the ability to sit and hygiene).w1 We review the literature on current management of hip dislocation in cerebral palsy in terms of its clinical course, measurement, and treatments.
