Late-Onset Circulatory Collapse and Risk of Cerebral Palsy in Extremely Preterm Infants

To investigate whether the development of postnatal, late-onset refractory hypotension, referred to as late-onset circulatory collapse, was associated with an increased risk of developing cerebral palsy (CP) at 3  years of age in extremely preterm infants.

Background: Surgical lengthening of the hamstrings is often performed to correct crouch gait in children with cerebral palsy (CP). Previous studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of open hamstring lengthening (oHSL) in improving knee extension static and dynamic range of motion; however, literature regarding percutaneous hamstring lengthening (pHSL) is limited. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of open versus pHSL for improving crouch gait and knee function in children with CP. Methods: This retrospective cohort study included 87 ambulatory children with CP who underwent HLS surgery with bot...

CONCLUSION: Botulinum toxin type A injection increases ROM in hip, knee and ankle joint contractures in CP. Although age, gender and functional level may influence the clinical outcomes, pre-treatment level of contracture is the main determinant in improvement in ROM at post-injection.

CONCLUSION: The instrumented movement analysis is an additional tool that aids clinical practitioners of O/U in the dynamic assessment of pathologic movement and loading patterns. In conjunction with common radiologic imaging it aids in the planning of type and extent of corrective surgical interventions. In the field of orthopaedics and trauma surgery movement analysis can help as an additional diagnostic tool to develop therapeutic strategies and evaluate clinical outcomes.

This study aimed to investigate the reliability and validity of this protocol in children with unilateral cerebral palsy (uCP).Methods. Angular waveforms (WAVE), maximum angles (MAX) and range of motion (ROM) of the trunk, shoulder, elbow and wrist joints were collected in children with uCP and in typically developing children (TDC) during 4 tasks of the BE-API protocol designed to explore specific degrees of freedom (DoF). The inter-trial reliability was assessed with the coefficient of multiple correlation (CMC) for WAVE and the intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) and standard error of measurement (SEM) for MAX and ...

CONCLUSIONS: Cerebral palsy has been widely represented in works of fiction and testimonies, comics, films, short films, documentaries and television series, sometimes in a very realistic way, while in others it has been done in a way that may increase the stigma surrounding this condition by offering a distorted vision of reality. Nevertheless, in any event they have helped to make this condition more visible. PMID: 31287151 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Burak M, Kavlak E Abstract BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study is to examine the relationship between quality of life, activity-participation and environmental factors in adolescents with cerebral palsy. METHODS: Seventy-five adolescents (M:45, F:30) ages between 14-18 yrs (mean: 15.52±1.60 yrs) were included in the study. Participants were divided into three groups: Level I, Level II and Level III according to the Gross Motor Function Classification System. Gross Motor Function Classification System, Gross Motor Function Measure, Functional Independence Scale, Manuel Ability Cla...

The objectives of this study were to compare the prevalence of osteoarthritis between adults with and without cerebral palsy, and to determine how the prevalence of osteoarthritis changes throughout adulthood for each group. DESIGN: Data were extracted from the 2016 Optum Clinformatics® Data Mart, a nationwide database of de-identified US insurance claims, containing medical and pharmacy information on beneficiaries. SUBJECTS: International Classification of Diseases 10th revision (ICD-10) codes were used to identify adults (18+ years) with (n = 7,348) and without (n = 8.7 million) c...
