Selective posterior rhizotomy is effective for relieving spasticity associated with cerebral palsy. In current techniques dorsal roots from L1/L2 to S1/S2 are selectively divided. With transoperative electromyography (EMG) significant sensory loss has been prevented, but postoperative hypotonia following excessive reduction of the fusimotor drive is still(More)
A limited selective posterior rhizotomy was performed on 30 children suffering from spasticity secondary to infantile cerebral palsy. As opposed to standard techniques that stimulate and divide the dorsal rootlets from L2 to S1, we dissected L4, L5, and S1 dorsal roots through an L5 to S1 laminectomy. Eight to 12 rootlets from each root were electrically(More)
The aim of the study was to develop a scale to assess parenting styles used by mothers and fathers. The sample was non-probabilistic and consisted of 790 participants, 350 mothers and 440 fathers of the city of Mexico, with an average age of 36.34 years. The age of the children ranged from 6 to 12 years. A Likert scale with six response options (strongly(More)
INTRODUCTION Selective posterior rhizotomy (SPR) is effective for reducing spasticity associated to infantile cerebral palsy (ICP). To avoid excessive muscular hypotone a different surgical technique is proposed. PATIENTS AND METHODS Sixteen children with spasticity secondary to ICP were evaluated before and after rhizotomy. The degree of spasticity was(More)
