Introduction: The presence of a unilateral-hip dislocation in children with cerebral palsy (CP) may cause problems with sitting imbalance, pressure ulcers, and hip pain. There is a dynamic interplay between hip dislocation, pelvic obliquity (PO), and scoliosis. The effect of an untreated unilateral hip dislocation on the rate of curve progression of CP scoliosis has not been defined in the literature. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of unilateral hip dislocation on PO and the rate of curve progression in children with spastic quadriplegic CP.
