The article discusses how hip dislocation among children with bilateral spastic cerebral palsy were managed before modern active management was introduced. It has been suggested that children with such disease should be treated with radiological investigation of at-risk hips to observe subluxation. One study found out that the proportion of dislocated hips increased with age and disease severity and that no preventive surgery had been performed for about 42 percent of the children.
