We divided the patients into two groups: surgery made in patients above five yars and after five years of age. Results: With a follow up of seven years, most of the patients of both groups had Reimers Index controlled by the surgery proposed. Conclusion: Adductor and psoas release was effective in controlled hip displacement in quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy patients, Gross Motor V.
