Background In patients with spastic hemiplegic cerebral palsy (CP) it can be difficult to clearly define whether deviations in gait pattern result from impaired motor control, leg length discrepancy (LLD), or are a consequence of secondary compensatory mechanisms. LLD is common and treatment can be considered. The goal was to investigate the degree of LLD in the lower limb including the pelvis, femur, tibia, talus, and calcaneus using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Methods Forty-four… Expand
