WHAT IS SPML?
HOW SPML IS DONE?
This is a 5 ½ years old young guy with spastic quadriplegia. The Before video was taken at the gait lab. He underwent SPML and Alcohol Block on his lower extremities. Post operative videos were shot at six and eight months.
Case before & after Alcohol Block
This video shows that before the Alcohol Block when you try to move one leg, the other follows to the same direction. After the Alcohol Block each leg can be moved independently without cross reaction. This allows for voluntary muscle control (the child can move each leg without scissoring).
