Abstract: Correction of persistent crouch gait in pediatric cerebral palsy patients is difficult. A combined distal femoral extension osteotomy (DFEO) along with patellar tendon advancement provides pain relief and improves ambulation. This procedure is commonly performed using fixed angle constructs. Disadvantages of using this technique in cerebral palsy patients include the inability to bear weight postoperatively and delayed rehabilitation.
