Resumo

BISCHOF, FM. Single event multilevel surgery in cerebral palsy: a review of the literature. SA orthop. j. [online]. 2010, vol.9, n.1, pp. 30-33. ISSN 2309-8309.

Single event multilevel surgery (SEMLS) ha s become an increasing trend in the orthopaedic management of cerebral palsy due to the advantages of one hospital admission and one period of rehabilitation. This article reviews the studies relating to the outcome of SEMLS published over the last 10 years. Improvements in gait parameters are reported in the literature but the articles provide a low level of evidence and there are limitations in the conduct of the research. Further studies, employing good scientific rigour are indicated to provide higher levels of evidence regarding the efficacy of this intervention for persons with cerebral palsy.
