This study presents our results with a single graft modification of slotted acetabular augmentation in severely neuromuscularly compromised children from 1983 to 1986. Included in the study were 26 hips of 24 patients (13 males and 11 females) with an average age of 8 years 3 months at the time of surgery. Most of the patients had spastic cerebral palsy. The average followup was 29 months. We believe that our current results show that slotted acetabular augmentation in patients with neuromuscular conditions is a relatively simple and safe procedure with a high probability for a successful outcome.
