Hemiplegia is the most common form of Cerebral Palsy. Upper Limb is generally more affected than lower one.

Abstract

Hemiplegia is the most common form of Cerebral Palsy. Upper Limb is generally more affected than lower one. In fact, hemiplegic children can spontaneously acquire standing and walking ability, while manipulation remains uncertain, with severe limitations in activity and participation, which define child's functional status (International Classification of Functioning - ICF). Several non-surgical tools are currently available to approach upper limb impairments. Studies regarding upper limb multilevel surgery in Hemiplegic Cerebral Palsy are relatively few and inhomogeneous.
