Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The authors report the results of their management of 14 forearm pronator teres contractures resulting from cerebral palsy. In almost every case, treatment was started with orthopedic splints and physiotherapy followed by the Gosset-Scaglietti technique and, one year later, Stoffel surgery, as proposed by Bastos-Mora in order to denervate the hypertonic pronator teres, was performed. The results were good in 80% of cases, fair in 16% and poor in 4%.
