Abstract

Hip dislocation or subluxation together with poor nutrition, reduced weight bearing, and osteoporosis is a frequent condition in severe cerebral palsy (CP). Severe osteoporosis may cause difficulties in fixing a proximal femoral osteotomy with a conventional blade plate. The Pediatric locking compression plate (LCP) Hip Plate system offers better grip and more stable fixation.
