Classifications of gait and postural patterns in spastic hemiplegia and spastic diplegiía are presented, based on the work of previous authors. The classifications are used as a biomechanical basis, linking spasticity, musculoskeletal pathology in the lower limbs, and the appropriate intervention strategies. The choice of target muscles for spasticity management, the muscle contractures requiring lengthening and the choice of orthotics are then linked to the underlying gait pattern. 
Sagittal gait patterns in spastic diplegia.
TLDR
A simple classification of sagittal gait patterns in spastic diplegia is devised based on a combination of pattern recognition and kinematic data and the reliability of this classification was demonstrated. Expand
Principle of Orthosis Correction in Gait Problem
TLDR
Gait abnormality can be caused by musculoskeletal and neuromuscular problems and can occur among every population from pediatric, adult and geriatric cases. Expand
ii) The management of spastic diplegia
TLDR
Instrumented gait analysis is a prerequisite of surgery and all deformities should be addressed simultaneously and surgery should only be considered once the child's function has plateaued, usually between the age of seven and ten. Expand
Multilevel orthopaedic surgery in group IV spastic hemiplegia.
TLDR
It was found that internal rotation of the hip and pelvic retraction were consistent abnormalities of gait in group-IV hemiplegia, and a programme of multilevel surgery resulted in predictable improvement in gait and posture, including pelvic Retraction. Expand
Gait patterns in hemiplegic children with cerebral palsy: The uninvolved side
TLDR
The aim of this study was to assess the kinematics of the normal, also called sound, lower limb and compare them with the kinesiology of the involved limb in order to find characteristic kinematic patterns in the uninvolved side of these children. Expand
The role of gait analysis in treating gait abnormalities in cerebral palsy.
TLDR
The current trend in the treatment of individuals with CP is to perform a thorough evaluation including a complete patient history from birth to present, a comprehensive physical examination, appropriate radiographs, consultation with other medical specialists, and analysis of gait. Expand
Correction of severe crouch gait in patients with spastic diplegia with use of multilevel orthopaedic surgery.
TLDR
Multilevel orthopaedic surgery for older children and adolescents with severe crouch gait is effective for relieving stress on the knee extensor mechanism, reducing knee pain, and improving function and independence. Expand
Most frequent gait patterns in diplegic spastic cerebral palsy
TLDR
The asymmetrical cases were the most frequent within a group of diplegic patients and individuals with crouch gait pattern were characterized by the lowest GDI and the highest prevalence of GMFCS III, while patients with stiff knee exhibited a higher percentage of previous hamstring lengthening in comparison to the other groups. Expand
Classification of Spastic Hemiplegic Cerebral Palsy in Children
TLDR
The Winter classification of spastic hemiplegic cerebral palsy failed to classify 23% of patients, and it is suggested that the classification be complemented with the less involved group 0, which showed the least deviation from normal values. Expand
Gait Patterns in Hemiplegic Patients with Equinus Foot Deformity
TLDR
Clustering of gait patterns in chronic hemiplegic patients with equinus deformity of the foot is helpful for a better understanding of dysfunction during gait and delivering more targeted treatment. Expand

Four homogeneous patterns of gait were defined in forty-six patients who had spastic hemiplegia secondary to cerebral palsy or other neurological disorders by analyzing kinematic data in the sagittalExpand
Surgical management of spastic diplegia in cerebral palsy.
TLDR
Cerebral palsy in premature children is manifested as spastic diplegia in about 70 percent of the cases, and this disorder of movement and posture is particularly important because it afflicts the majority of patients with cerebral palsy. Expand
Gait changes in children with spastic diplegia after selective dorsal rhizotomy.
TLDR
Twenty-six ambulatory children with spastic diplegia underwent preoperative and 1-year postoperative assessments after selective dorsal rhizotomy for spasticity, passive range of motion, tone, three-dimensional motion analysis, and electromyography. Expand

TLDR
Compared with barefoot gait, AFOs enhanced gait function in diplegic subjects and resulted from elimination of premature plantar flexion and improved progression of foot contact during stance. Expand

TLDR
For equinus deformity in spastic hemiplegia, correction by the White slide technique has been studied in a group of 35 patients followed up for 14 to 20 years and is free from significant complications with an acceptable rate of recurrent deformity. Expand

TLDR
The HAFO was themost effective in controlling knee hyperextension in stance, while PLS was the most effective in promoting knee extension in children with >10 degree knee flexion in stance. Expand
Common gait abnormalities of the knee in cerebral palsy.
TLDR
Based on the experience gained from performing gait analysis on more than 588 patients with cerebral palsy, four primary gait abnormalities of the knee have been identified: jump knee, crouch knee, stiff knee, and recurvatum knee. Expand
Botulinum toxin A in hamstring spasticity.
TLDR
Ten children who were likely to require future hamstring lengthening were injected with BtA and short term outcome was assessed by clinical examination and 3-D gait analysis, suggesting that isolated hamstring weakening be approached with caution. Expand
