Abstract

Selective dorsal rhizotomy (SDR) is a neurosurgical treatment to reduce spasticity in children with cerebral palsy (CP). Where some children show large improvements on domains of motor function and mobility, others do not [1–3]. Since SDR is a highly invasive and irreversible treatment, it is important to select only those candidates who are most likely to benefit from the procedure.
