In 1994 a cerebral palsy (CP) register and healthcare programme was established in southern Sweden with the primary aim of preventing dislocation of the hip in these children. The results from the first ten years were published in 2005 and showed a decrease in the incidence of dislocation of the hip, from 8% in a historical control group of 103 children born between 1990 and 1991 to 0.5% in a group of 258 children born between 1992 and 1997. These two cohorts have now been re-evaluated and an… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Hip displacement and dislocation in a total population of children with cerebral palsy in Scotland.

Hip surveillance appears to be effective and has reduced the prevalence of hip displacement by over half and dislocation almost by half in these children.

Prevalence and treatment of hip displacement in children with cerebral palsy in Finland

Children with cerebral palsy in Finland not participating in a surveillance hip program were more likely to undergo hip surgery at an older age and to develop hip displacements and dislocations, which support the effectiveness of surveillance programs to prevent hip dislocation in children with cortex palsy.

Windswept hip deformity in children with cerebral palsy: a population-based prospective follow-up

It appears possible to reduce the frequency of windswept hip deformity starting in the lower extremities with early inclusion in a hip surveillance program and early treatment of contractures.

Hip displacement in children with cerebral palsy in Scotland: a total population study

The number of children from a total population of children with cerebral palsy in Scotland who had a displaced or dislocated hip at first registration in a national surveillance programme is reported.

Prevention of Hip Dislocation in Children with Cerebral Palsy

The CPUP hip score is a risk score and has a high predictive ability to distinguish highfrom low-risk individuals for hip displacement (MP >40%) within 5 years and the HSA has excellent interand intra-rater reliability.

Prediction of hip displacement in children with cerebral palsy: development of the CPUP hip score.

The discriminatory accuracy of the CPUP hip score is high (AUC = 0.87), indicating a high ability to differentiate between high- and low-risk individuals for hip displacement, and may be useful in deciding on further follow-up and treatment in children with CP.

Unilateral varus osteotomy of the proximal femur in children with cerebral palsy: a five-year follow-up of the development of both hips

Children with CP and unilateral hip displacement have a low risk of later contralateral displacement after being operated on with unilateral VOPF, and this supports healthcare programmes that advocate unilateral VopF in children with unilateral hips displacement.

Hip and Spine in Cerebral Palsy

It appears that the hip surveillance program has resulted in a reduction in the incidence of WS starting in the lower extremities but not in the incidents starting with scoliosis, which seems to have been reduced by the hip Surveillance program.

Hip displacement in relation to age and gross motor function in children with cerebral palsy

The results support a surveillance program including radiographic hip examinations as soon as the diagnosis of severe CP is suspected, and children at GMFCS V have a significantly higher risk of hip displacement compared with children at Gross Motor Function Classification System levels III–V.

Hip development after surgery to prevent hip dislocation in cerebral palsy: a longitudinal register study of 252 children

The migration percentage (MP) was used to compare the development of hip displacement after APL and VDRO and found the risk of reoperation is higher in children with a high preoperative displacement velocity and a highPreoperative MP.

Prevention of dislocation of the hip in children with cerebral palsy. The first ten years of a population-based prevention programme.

A screening programme and early intervention when lateral displacement of the femoral head was detected appear to be successful in preventing dislocation of the hip in children with cerebral palsy in southern Sweden.

Characteristics of children with hip displacement in cerebral palsy

Range of motion is a poor indicator of hips at risk, and a hip surveillance programme for children with CP with radiographic examinations based on the child's age and GMFCS level is recommended.

Prevalence of hip dislocation among children with cerebral palsy in regions with and without a surveillance programme: a cross sectional study in Sweden and Norway

The surveillance programme reduced the number of hip dislocations and the proportion of children undergoing hip surgery was lower and strongly support the effectiveness of a specifically designed follow-up programme for the prevention of hip dislocation in children with CP.

Hip subluxation and dislocation in cerebral palsy - a prospective study on the effectiveness of postural management programmes.

The early provision of postural management equipment has a role to play in reducing the number of hip problems and therefore the need for treatment of hip subluxation/dislocation in cerebral palsy at five years of age is considered.

Cerebral palsy in a total population of 4–11 year olds in southern Sweden. Prevalence and distribution according to different CP classification systems

The prevalence of cerebral palsy and the subtype distribution did not differ from that reported in other studies, although the proportion of mild CP tended to be higher.

Hip surveillance in children with cerebral palsy. Impact on the surgical management of spastic hip disease.

It is recommended that hip surveillance should become part of the routine management of children with cerebral palsy and co-ordinated approach by orthopaedic surgeons and physiotherapists may be the key to successful implementation of this screening programme.

Hip dislocation in cerebral palsy.

The pathomechanics of coxa valga and of hip dislocation in cerebral palsy are discussed, stressing the importance of prophylactic tenotomy of the spastic hip adductors and of strengthening the motor power of the cerebral-zero hip abductors by automatic reflex.

Fractures in Patients With Cerebral Palsy

The greatest risk factor for fracture is the nonambulatory CP child on anticonvulsant therapy, and these risk factors seem to have increased, resulting in a higher prevalence of low energy fractures.

Hip displacement in cerebral palsy.

Hip displacement is common in children with cerebral palsy, with an overall incidence of 35% found in this study, and the risk of hip displacement is directly related to gross motor function as graded with the Gross Motor Function Classification System.

Radiographic threshold values for hip screening in cerebral palsy

Radiographic follow-up with only measurement of the MP seems sufficient in screening for dislocation in children with CP, and MP ≥ 33% is recommended as threshold for reaction or intensified observation.
