In 1994, a register for cerebral palsy and a health-care programme were started in southern Sweden with the aim of preventing dislocation of the hip in children with cerebral palsy. It involved all children with cerebral palsy born in 1992 or later. None of the 206 affected children born between 1992 and 1997 has developed a dislocation following the introduction of the prevention programme. Another 48 children moved into the area and none developed any further dislocation. Of the 251 children…

Prevention of dislocation of the hip in children with cerebral palsy: 20-year results of a population-based prevention programme.

A population-based hip surveillance programme enables the early identification and preventive treatment, which can result in a significantly lower incidence of dislocation of the hip in children with CP.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

Risk Factors for Hip Displacement in Children With Cerebral Palsy: Systematic Review

Applying a practical surveillance program for children with CP can prevent hip dislocation, provide early treatment, and ultimately lead to consistently better outcomes than those of neglected hip dislocations.

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.

Dislocation of the hip in cerebral palsy. Natural history and predictability.

Measurement of acetabular index, by a method that allows for rotation of the acetabulum, was the most powerful single predictor of dislocation and a logical system of surgical prophylaxis is proposed.

Factors affecting the incidence of hip dislocation in cerebral palsy.

A strong correlation was found between the stability of the hip and the patients' ability to walk and also on the indications for prophylactic surgery.

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 Dislocation in Spastic Cerebral Palsy: Long‐Term Consequences

Bilateral dislocations may benefit from reduction if treatment is undertaken before significant adaptive deformity of the femoral head occurs, and patients with spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy with 51 dislocated hips are recommended.

Cerebral palsy in southern Sweden I. Prevalence and clinical features

The prevalence, clinical features and gross motor function of children with cerebral palsy in southern Sweden were investigated and the distribution according to gestational age, birthweight and subdiagnoses was similar to that in earlier Swedish studies, except for a higher rate of dyskinetic syndromes in this study.

Prevention of hip dislocation in cerebral palsy by early psoas and adductors tenotomies.

The effectiveness of psoas and adductor tenotomies for the prevention of hip dislocation was investigated and successful results were obtained in 90% of patients under age 4 who had an MP less than 33%.

THE CHANGING PANORAMA OF CEREBRAL PALSY IN SWEDEN 1954–1970

Ataxic diplegic forms were found to have greater pathogenetic similarities to spastic diplegia than to simple ataxia, and in two‐thirds of the children the latter syndrome was characterized by normal pregnancy, delivery and birth weight and an untraceable (genetic?) factor.

PREVENTION OF SPASTIC PARALYTIC DISLOCATION OF THE HIP

Radiographic analysis showed that uncovering of the femoral head had halted or improved in 80 per cent of patients following iliopsoas recession, and results were poor for 64 per cent after adductor tenotomy and anterior branch obturator neurectomy.
