We review our experience in surgical treatment of scoliosis in cerebral palsy (CP) patients to improve the functional status of such patients. The results with two types of instrumentation are reported. The best results with fusion to the sacrum were obtained with ringed rods with sublaminar and basispinous wiring, adding distraction and compression, and pedicular screws.
