Concomitant correction of spinal deformity and spasticity management with posterior instrumentation and baclofen pump implantation.
J Surg Orthop Adv. 2009 Fall; 18(3):155-8.JS

Abstract

Patients with spastic quadriplegia secondary to cerebral palsy manifest with severe spasticity and often with neuromuscular scoliosis. In order to optimize treatment and minimize morbidity in selected cases, the authors present a surgical option concurrently addressing these problems. This study reviews one case and describes the surgical technique in detail where intrathecal baclofen pump implantation and posterior spinal fusion are concomitantly performed to manage spasticity and scoliosis, respectively.
