French version of the Mini BESTest: A translation and transcultural adaptation study incorporating a reliability analysis for individuals with sensorimotor impairments undergoing functional rehabilitation
This study aimed to translate and transculturally adapt the Mini BESTest to French and verify its intra- and inter-rater reliability. Translation and transcultural adaptation was performed in accordance with established guidelines, which included 2 initial translations and transcultural adaptations of the Mini BESTest to French that were then merged, a backward English translation, a subsequent adapted French version resolving discrepancies between the English versions, and pilot testing the final version by French-speaking physical therapists. In total, 20 participants with sensorimotor impairments with various etiologies...

Botulinum toxin type A or selective neurotomy for treating focal spastic muscle overactivity?
ConclusionBotulinum toxin type A has the highest level of evidence and the largest range of indications. However, the botulinum toxin effect is reversible and seems less effective, which supports a permanent surgical treatment such as selective neurotomy, especially for the spastic foot. Further research is needed to compare the effect of botulinum toxin type A and selective neurotomy for the different types of spastic muscle overactivity and clinical patterns.

Adjunct therapies to improve outcomes after botulinum toxin injection in children: a systematic review
ConclusionLower-limb posture with casting in children has a high level of evidence, but the long-term efficacy of short-leg casting needs to be evaluated. A comparison between the different modalities of casting is missing, and studies specifically devoted to testing the different kinds of casting are needed. Moreover, the delay to casting after BTX injection is not clear. Data on electrical stimulation are not conclusive. Despite the small number of studies, resistance training could be an interesting adjunct therapy notably to avoid loss of strength after BTX injection.
