Summary
The purpose of this article is to present the current principles of comprehensive assessment and treatment of patients with myelomeningocele. We present the connection between the level of neurosegmental lesion according to modified Sharrard’s classification and functional abilities of the patient. We describe lower limbs deformity typically associated with neurosegmental lesions of spina bifida at different levels (I to VI). The classification of neurosegmental lesion levels is based on an evaluation of muscle strength of individual muscle groups according to the Lovett scale.
