Spatial Characteristics of Jaw Movements During Chewing in Children with Cerebral Palsy: A Pilot Study

This study compared jaw motion between children with cerebral palsy (CP) and their typically-developing (TD) peers during chewing. The jaw movements of 11 children with spastic CP (GMFCS levels II –V) all of whom were exclusively oral feeders with no reported clinical issues with feeding [mean age = 7.49 (2.30) years; 7 males, 4 females] and 11 age- and sex-matched TD peers [mean age = 7.54 (2.35) years] were recorded using optical motion capture. Participants chewed five trials of thre e different consistencies, including puree, mechanical soft, and solid. For each chewing sequence, the path distance (total amount of distance traveled by the jaw), average jaw speed, and working space (total 3-dimensional size of the jaw movements during chewing) were calculated. The CP group had g reater path distances for mechanical soft and solids (p

By SAURABH JHA Of my time arguing with doctors, 30 % is spent convincing British doctors that their American counterparts aren’t idiots, 30 % convincing American doctors that British doctors aren’t idiots, and 40 % convincing both that I’m not an idiot. A British doctor once earnestly asked whether American physicians carry credit card reading machines inside their white coats. Myths about the NHS can be equally comical. British doctors don’t prostate every morning in deference to the NHS, like the citizens of Oceania sang to Big Brother in Orwell’s dystopia. Nor, in their daily rounds, do the...

(Aust N Z J Obstet Gynaecol. 2017;57(3):327–333) Although the overall incidence of cord prolapse is 0.1% to 0.6%, it often appears in perinatal mortality inquiries, with a perinatal mortality rate of 91 in 1000 in the setting of cord prolapse. Cord prolapse is also significantly associated with spastic quadriplegic or dyskinetic cerebral palsy in both term and preterm infants. In order to optimize perinatal outcome in cases of cord prolapse where there is evidence of fetal distress, a diagnosis to delivery interval (DDI) of

Conclusions and implications VHR-infants with and without CP have a similar postural development that differs from published trajectories of typically developing infants. Infants with cPVL present from early age onwards dysfunctions in fine-tuning of postural adjustments; they focus on direction-specificity.
