Abstract This study evaluated the outcome of severe cerebral palsy patients (Gross Motor Function Classification System level IV and V) treated by simultaneous percutaneous pelvic osteotomy and intertrochanteric varus shortening osteotomy for hip subluxation or dislocation between 2002 and 2011. Twenty-four patients (30 hips) with an average age of 9.4 years (5-16.5) were reviewed at a mean follow-up of 35.9 months (6-96). Percutaneous pelvic osteotomy lasted on average 30 min/patient per side (25-40) and was always performed through a skin incision of 2-3 cm. The migration percentage and acetabular angle were assessed on plain radiographs. The mean Reimers' migration percentage improved from 67.1% (42-100) preoperatively to 7.7% (0-70) at the last follow-up and the mean acetabular angle improved from 31.8° (22-48) to 15.7° (5-27). Five patients presented complications: one redislocation, one bone graft dislodgement, and three with avascular necrosis of the femoral head. This study should be considered as a pilot study. These results indicate that this combined approach is an effective, reliable, and minimally invasive alternative method for the treatment of spastic dislocated hips in severe cerebral palsy patients with an outcome similar to standard techniques reported in the literature.
