Publication date: Available online 25 January 2020Source: Anaesthesia &Intensive Care MedicineAuthor(s): Geoff FrawleyAbstractAdvances in neonatal medicine have progressively increased the survival of premature infants. Increased survival has, however, come at the cost of increased number of infants with prematurity related complications. This is represented by high rates of respiratory distress syndrome, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, necrotising enterocolitis, sepsis, periventricular leukomalacia, intraventricular haemorrhage, cerebral palsy, hypoxic ischaemic encephalopathy and visual and hearing problems in survivors....

Publication date: Available online 25 January 2020Source: Journal of OrthopaedicsAuthor(s): Curtis T. Adams, Akshay LakraABSTRACTHip joint subluxation and dislocations are very common in cerebral palsy (CP) patients and are directly related to the degree of spasticity. Hip dislocation and subluxation leads to hip pain and difficulty in hygiene maintenance by caregiver. Most cases require some sort of surgical intervention to improve the quality of life in these patients. For many years’ pelvic and proximal femoral osteotomies with soft tissue releases was the main stay of treatment for these hips in CP patients. Hip ...

Intrathecal autologous bone marrow (ABM) total nucleated cells transplantation (TNCT) has been reported to be a promising treatment for cerebral palsy (CP) and autistic disorders (AD). Children with CP and AD, are expected to be patients with difficult approach when doing venipuncture or taking them to the operating room. Considering pain and the nature of the procedures, bone marrow collection (BMC) and intrathecal procedures (ITP) must be performed under sedation. For short procedures, sevoflurane can be administrated using a face mask and, propofol, a typical intravenous agent is used for the induction of general anesth...

Children with intellectual disability frequently undergo gastrostomy in order to continue enteral feeds. Indications for gastrostomy include failure to thrive, dysphagia and pulmonary aspiration, or even oral aversion. These children often have complex, comorbid conditions, such as cerebral palsy, seizures, or cardiopulmonary dysfunction. Parents are thus often challenged by the decision whether to proceed with gastrostomy, as a feeding tube will change daily care and long-term outcome for their child.

CONCLUSIONS: Data obtained with MD-CRS 4-18 R are in accordance with previous scale on individuals with movement disorders due to different aetiologies, tested with MD-CRS 4-18. CLINICAL REHABILITATION IMPACT: MD-CRS 4-18 R is able to verify natural history of the disease and represents a standardized clinical outcome measure in the evaluation and follow-up of children with DCP. Also MD-CRS 4-18 Revised form is a feasible tool, now easier to understand than the previous one, more available for incoming clinical trials. PMID: 31976641 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
