  4. Sir, I have a doubt…indications of tendo Achilles lengthening in Cerebral palsy, when to do and when not to do, depending on silverskiold test and age of pt…..

    • If the quadriceps is weak it should not be done, remember that gastrocnemius is an extensor of knee due to its origin from femoral condyles. Once the foot is fixed on the ground it can pull the femoral condyles back to produce extension of knee. Langenskiold positive means that equinus is predominantly due to gastrocnemius involvement with sparing of soleus, gastrocnemius alone needs to be corrected.
