Children with spastic hemiparesis can present with forearm pronation deformities that can greatly impair function. In the appropriate setting, pronator teres rerouting can provide active supination while preserving active pronation, which may improve function in these patients. Patient selection is imperative for the success of this procedure because, in the wrong setting, pronator teres rerouting can lead to fixed supination deformity that may actually worsen position and function in these patients.
