Cerebral palsy has always been known as a disorder of movement and posture resulting from a non-progressive injury to the developing brain; however, more recent definitions allow clinicians to appreciate more than just the movement disorder. Accurate classification of cerebral palsy into distribution, motor type and functional level has advanced research. It also facilitates appropriate targeting of interventions to functional level and more accurate prognosis prediction. The prevalence of… Expand
Advances in cerebral palsy biomarkers.
TLDR
The current risk factors and biomarkers used for the diagnosis and prediction of Cerebral palsy are described and it is predicted that the understanding of the etiopathophysiology of CP will increase, lending to more opportunities for developing novel treatments and prognosis. Expand
Unmasking the Enigma of Cerebral Palsy: A Traditional Review
TLDR
This review article will serve as a medium of education for the physician, healthcare team, and family involved in the management of children or adults with cerebral palsy and discusses the possible etiologies, diagnostic and assessment techniques, prevention methods, and possible rehabilitation interventions. Expand
Recent advances in cerebral palsy
The words unpreventable, incurable, and untreatable are still synonymous with cerebral palsy (CP). However, research and evidence coming from the fields of neuroplasticity, neuroregeneration, andExpand

TLDR
A progressive exercise program aimed at improving proximal stability and fine motor function might be an appropriate intervention for persons with athetoid cerebral palsy. Expand
Trends observed in bilateral cerebral palsy during a thirty-year period: A cohort study with an ICF-based overview.
TLDR
The functioning of a large sample of Italian patients with bilateral CP on the basis of the ICF framework is presented and a slight improvement was observed in the gross motor functioning and in the hand dexterity. Expand
A child with a novel DDX3X variant mimicking cerebral palsy: a case report
TLDR
A de novo heterozygous DDX3X variant mimicking cerebral palsy is reported in a girl afflicted with the X-linked mental retardation-102 (MRX102) and a thorough and conscientious review is suggested during diagnosis of CP. Expand
Application of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (Children and Youth Version) in the Evaluation of Rehabilitation Measures of Patients with Cerebral Palsy
Rehabilitation of children with cerebral palsy (CP) requires a systematic approach and dynamic evaluation of results. The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health forExpand
Addressing disparities among children with cerebral palsy: Optimizing enablement, functioning, and participation.
TLDR
Strategies need to be implemented in the United States to promote enablement and functioning among children with CP who face additional health disparities, based on factors such as SES, neighborhood disadvantage, maternal education, gender, and minority status. Expand
Etiology of intellectual disability in individuals from special education schools in the south of Brazil
TLDR
The main results show the need for etiological diagnosis and uncover the relevance of potential hereditary cases in a population where consanguineous unions have a relatively low frequency and highlight theneed for public health actions. Expand
The Impact of Oral-Gut Inflammation in Cerebral Palsy
TLDR
The results suggest that saliva inflammatory levels were linked to gut constipation, and that the clinical impact of medications that controlled gut was reliably monitored via oral cytokine levels, providing reliable and non-invasive information in precision diagnostics. Expand

TLDR
In the majority of patients, the benefits of SDR are durable through adolescence and into early adulthood, including improved muscle tone, gross motor function, and performance of ADLs, as well as a decreased need for adjunct orthopedic procedures or Botox injections. Expand
