Özet

Purpose Cerebral palsy (CP) is a disorder arising from a non-progressive lesion in the developing immature brain with an encephalopathy, that results in various levels of motor and sensory dysfunction. Motor disability of these children can be assessed by the Gross Motor Function Classification System in five levels, and depending on their motor functional capability, the most severely affected children fall into levels IV and V. Children in groups IV and V present a full spectrum of musculoskeletal deformities, among which, scoliosis is the most frequently found spinal deformity that most often requires surgical treatment. However, these are procedures that are usually technically demanding, requiring experienced surgical teams and a multidisciplinary approach.
