Authors: Shrader MW, Wimberly L, Thompson R Abstract Hip dysplasia is common in children with cerebral palsy (CP), especially in those children with notable functional impairment. Severity of hip dysplasia has been shown to correlate with higher Gross Motor Function Classification System levels. Migration percentage measured on AP pelvis radiographs is the key radiographic measure quantifying hip displacement in CP. Hip surveillance programs for children with CP exist in Europe, Australia, and parts of Canada and have been adopted as standard of care. These programs have demonstrated improved detection of hip sublu...

ConclusionThe diagnosis of TBP had been complicated by the presence of CP in the reported case. The underlying CP not only preclude the diagnosis of TBP, but also produced symptoms that mimicked a condition requiring surgery.

CONCLUSIONS: Multiple measures are required to capture the complexity of community integration. Relying solely on objective measures may not provide a complete picture of community integration. IMPLICATIONS FOR REHABILITATION Community integration is a complex construct that incorporates participation, socialization, and feelings of belonging in the community. New methods and measures are needed to assess the many aspects of community integration in adults with disabilities. A multi-method approach is recommended to provide a richer characterization of community integration in individuals with disabilities. A combination o...

Conclusions: Impairments in motor abilities are present in preterm born adolescents without major neuromotor impairment and in the absence of focal brain injury. Altered microstructure of the corpus callosum microstructure appears a crucial factor, in particular for movement quality. Introduction Very preterm birth (birth

Conclusions: The present study showed that CST integrity (at 6 months after onset) in patients with chronic stroke was related to functional hand status. In addition, the mid-pons FA value was more predictive of functional restoration of the hand than the FN or FA value at the pontomedullary junction. These results may be useful in predicting the functional restoration of the hand and understanding the functional prognosis of stroke. Introduction Restoration of hand function is one of the most important goals for patients with stroke (1). Thus, techniques that aid in predicting restoration of hand function are also i...
