Abstract

All patients with hypertonic cerebral palsy undergoing Bernese periacetabular osteotomy (PAO) between 2005 and 2014 were reviewed. Clinical and radiographic parameters, including the cerebral palsy hip classification and anterior and posterior wall indices were collected to assess acetabular reorientation. Twenty (83%) of 24 procedures involved the correction of posterolateral acetabular insufficiency and were 'anteverting PAOs'. All 20 experienced improvements in radiographic indices. Eleven (58%) of 19 PAOs in ambulatory patients were performed in the setting of other multilevel orthopedic surgery. The anteverting PAO is successful in correcting the posterolateral acetabular insufficiency present in spastic hip dysplasia, and can be performed in conjunction with a single-event multilevel surgery.
