The records concerning 64 hips in 36 cerebral palsy patients treated with varus derotational osteotomy (VDO) alone (2 hips), VDO with muscle releases (adductors, iliopsoas, hamstrings; 46 hips), and VDO, soft-tissue release, and innominate bone osteotomy (16 hips) were reviewed. There were 23 quadriplegic and 13 diplegic patients. Average age at surgery was 7 years. Average follow-up period was 3.8 years. All hips that had VDO, soft-tissue release, and innominate osteotomy were stable at follow-up. Nine hips of the 44 treated with VDO and muscle release alone dislocated, and required second osteotomies.
