  1. 1. Scoliosis in cerebral palsy

    Author : Katina Pettersson; Lund Ortopedi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cerebral pares; scoliosis; Risk factors; Braces; CPCHILD; RELIABILITY; Validity; CHILDREN; Adults;

    Abstract : BackgroundIndividuals with cerebral palsy (CP) have an increased risk for scoliosis, especially those with low gross motor function, affecting both quality of life and overall function. The aims were to increase the knowledge on the development of, and predictors for scoliosis and the use of spinal orthoses in individuals with CP, and also to evaluate the Caregiver Priorities and Child Health Index of Life with Disabilities (CPCHILD) questionnaire to examine health-related quality of life (HRQoL).

  2. 2. Sensorimotor behavior in children born preterm and adolescents with Cerebral Palsy : Side preference, movement organization, and training

    Author : Anna-Maria Johansson; Louise Rönnqvist; Erik Domellöf; Janette Atkinson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; prematurity; preterm; children; cerebral palsy; movement organization; movement performance; goal-directed; laterality; handedness; intelligence; cognition; synchronized metronome training; intervention; Psychology; psykologi;

    Abstract : Preterm birth (< 37 complete gestation weeks, GWs) is the single most prominent risk factor for the development of cerebral palsy (CP). This is due to the immature physiological state of the preterm born infant which increases the risk of brain lesions. READ MORE

  3. 3. Hip and Spine in Cerebral Palsy

    Author : Måns Persson-Bunke; Lund Ortopedi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cerebral palsy; windswept hip deformity; scoliosis; children; posture;

    Abstract : Abstract Background: Children with cerebral palsy (CP) have an increased risk of scoliosis, contractures including windswept hip deformity (WS), and hip dislocation. In 1994, a follow-up program and registry for children and adolescents with CP (CPUP) was initiated in Sweden to allow the early detection and prevention of hip dislocations and other musculoskeletal deformities.

  4. 4. Antecedents of Cerebral Palsy in children born at term - according to subtype, motor severity and accompanying impairments

    Author : Kristina Ahlin; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cerebral Pares; Risk factors; Epilepsy; Cognitive impairment; Spastic hemiplegia; Spastic diplegia; Spastic tetraplegia; Dyskinetic CP; Motor impairment; Accompanying impairments; Antecedents;

    Abstract : Aims: To explore antecedents of cerebral palsy (CP) according to subtype, severity of motor impairment and accompanying impairments (epilepsy and/or cognitive impairments) in relation to neuroimaging patterns. Material and methods: Case control studies were performed in a population-based serie of children with CP born at term (n=309), matched with a control group (n=618). READ MORE

  5. 5. Posture, postural ability and mobility in cerebral palsy

    Author : Elisabet Rodby Bousquet; Lund Ortopedi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cerebral palsy; posture; mobility; walking; wheelchairs; assessment tool;

    Abstract : Cerebral palsy (CP) is the most common cause of motor disability in children and adolescents with a prevalence of 2-3/1000. CP is characterized by disorders of posture and movement with impairments ranging from mild to severe. The ability to control posture is an important prerequisite for all voluntary movements.
