Gait pattern is a frequent problem in cerebral palsy. The aim of the investigation is the evaluation of proximal femur
normalization and/or pelvis normalization after surgical correction and simultaneous operations on soft tissues of lower
limbs, as well as walk analysis. From 1980. to 2000. were operated 856 patients, 476 male and 380 female, between 1–51
years. Basic walk parameters were analyzed: step length, speed and the number of steps in one minute (cadence). 75.25%
of patients had good results with improved of centrum collum diaphysis (CCD) and angle of anteversion (AV) or antetorsion
(AT) for 70%, and more independent walking with contracture corrections and decreased spasticism. The best results
were achieved with simultaneous two-side operations, with patients’ age between 1 and 3, achieving independent
walking. More operations at the same time significantly reduce spasticism – one anesthesia, one immobilization, and
later same time post-operative physical therapy and satisfactory better results.
