Özet

Objectives: Nutritional deficiencies and use of antiepileptic drugs can lead to alterations in the hematological status of children with cerebral palsy (CP), which may increase the risk of intraoperative or postoperative hematological complications. In this retrospective study, we evaluated the preoperative routine blood tests of CP patients with different levels of walking ability, who were scheduled to undergo orthopedic procedures.
