Cerebral palsy (CP) is an umbrella term encompassing motor and often additional disabilities, resulting from insult to the developing brain and remaining throughout life. Imaging-detected alterations in white matter microstructure affect not only motor but also sensorimotor pathways. In this context, piano training is believed to promote sensorimotor rehabilitation for the multiplicity of skills and neuronal processes it involves and integrates. However, it remains unknown how this contribution may occur. Here, effects of 1.5 years of piano training in an adolescent with unilateral CP were investigated through tests of man...

Conclusion: Only one in eight adults with CP has a partner, and one in six has competitive employment. Access to personal assistance is the single most important factor for independent living. It is vital to support adults with CP throughout their lifespan to achieve the best possible outcomes in all aspects of life.

CONCLUSIONS: Children with neonatal HIE, without CP, treated with hypothermia may be more likely to develop MND and motor difficulties than typically developing peers. Inattention may contribute to motor performance. In the absence of CP, neonatal MRI and toddler age assessment of motor development have limited predictive value for school-age outcome. Since this was an exploratory study with a small sample size, findings should be confirmed by a definite larger study.PMID:34666231 | DOI:10.1016/j.ejpn.2021.10.005

Acta Orthop. 2021 Oct 18:1-6. doi: 10.1080/17453674.2021.1989563. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBackground and purpose - Operative treatment of hip displacement in cerebral palsy (CP) includes adductor-psoas lengthening (APL) or varus derotation osteotomy (VDRO) of the proximal femur, sometimes combined with pelvic osteotomy. After both operations, there is a significant risk of relapse and need for reoperation. We used the migration percentage (MP) to compare the development of hip displacement after APL and VDRO.Patients and methods - All reported MP measurements for children treated with APL (n = 158) or VDRO (n = 94) a...

AbstractSGA (small for gestational age) is widely used to identify high-risk infants, although with inconsistent definitions. Cut points range from 2.5th to 10th percentile of birthweight-for-gestational age. We used receiver operator characteristic curves (ROC) to identify the cut point with maximum sensitivity and specificity (Youden Index), and the area under the curve (AUC), which assesses overall discriminating power. Analysis was conducted on 3,836,034 US births (2015) and 292,279 Norwegian births (2010 –14). Birthweight percentiles were calculated using exact birthweights at each week of gestational age, and t...

This study ’s objective was to correlate the abnormalities in brain MRIs performed at corrected-term age for minor or moderate neurocognitive disorders in children school-age born extremely premature (EPT) and without serious sequelae such as autism, cerebral palsy, mental impairment. Data were issued from a cross-sectional multicenter study (GP-Qol study, number NCT01675726). Clinical examination and psychometric assessments were performed when the children were between 7 and 10 years old during a day-long evaluation. Term-equivalent age brain MRIs on EPT were analyzed with a standardized scoring sys tem. There...
