Background: The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between preoperative comorbidities, surgical complications, and length of stay (LOS) after hip reconstruction in nonambulatory children with cerebral palsy (CP). Methods: This single-center retrospective cohort study included 127 patients undergoing hip surgery between 2007 and 2016 who were diagnosed with CP (GMFCS IV/V). The cohort was 54% Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS) V with an average age at surgery of 9 years (range, 3-19 y). Preoperative comorbidities included: presence of a gastrostomy tube, respiratory difficulty r...

Background: Gait dysfunction associated with patella alta (PA) in subjects with cerebral palsy (CP) has been presumed but not objectively established clinically or through biomechanical modeling. It is hypothesized that PA is associated with increasing level of motor impairment, increasing age, obesity, and worse stance phase knee kinematics and kinetics in children with CP. Methods: Retrospective case series of 297 subjects with CP studied in our Motion Analysis Center. Data analyzed included patient demographics (age, body mass index, CP classification), patella height (Koshino-Sugimoto Index), and knee kinematics a...

Background: Bilateral hip reconstructions with osteotomies are commonly required in patients with severe cerebral palsy (CP) and dysplasia. These procedures can be performed by staging each hip surgery, separated by weeks to months, or by addressing both hips in a single-event surgery. The optimal timing of such surgery is yet to be determined. The purpose of this study was to retrospectively compare major complications between the staged and single-event approaches. Methods: Medical records of patients who underwent bilateral hip osteotomies, with at least one side including a pelvic osteotomy, were retrospectively r...

Hi everyone, super simple question. I'm working as a volunteer at a conductive education program that helps both teach (as in a classroom setting) and physically help babies to senior individuals who are diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida, Parkinson's, and other neurological motor disabilities. I also do help with taking students to the bathroom, learning more about motor disabilities, and assisting them with physical activities. Conductive education isn't a fairly common thing in... Would conductive education be considered clinical volunteering?

AbstractHypoxia, the major cause of ischemic injury, leads to debilitating disease in infants via birth asphyxia and cerebral palsy, whereas in adults via heart attack and stroke. A widespread, natural protective phenomenon termed ‘hypoxic preconditioning’ (PH) occurs when prior exposures to hypoxia eventually result in robust hypoxia resistance. Accordingly, we have developed and optimized a novel model of hypoxic preconditioning in adult zebrafish to mimic the tolerance of mini stroke(s) in human, which appears to prote ct against the severe damage inflicted by a major stroke event. Here, we observed a remark...

Spastic cerebral palsy (SCP) affects neural control, deteriorates muscle morphometrics, and may progressively impair functional walking ability. Upon passive testing, gastrocnemius medialis (GM) muscle bellies or fascicles are typically shorter, thinner, and less extensible. Relationships between muscle and gait parameters might help to understand gait pathology and pathogenesis of spastic muscles. The current aim was to link resting and dynamic GM morphometrics and contractile fascicle behavior (both excursion and velocity) during walking to determinants of gait. We explored the associations between gait variables and ult...

Children with cerebral palsy have higher proportions of intramuscular fat than typically developing children. There is no clear relationship between intramuscular fat fraction and dorsiflexion range of motion in children with cerebral palsy.
