The International Workshop on the Definition and Classification of Cerebral Palsy have proposed a fresh definition and classification of cerebral palsy (CP; p 571). In their accompanying paper they explain their reasoning behind this. Why is there the need for revision of the widely accepted and comfortably familiar definitions of Bax and Mutch? These definitions are beautifully succinct and clear but perhaps not inclusive enough, making no mention of pathogenesis or of the functional and ‘non… Expand

TLDR
The International Workshop on the Definition and Classification of Cerebral Palsy have proposed a fresh definition and classification of cerebral palsy and the most provocative suggestion is that CP should be classified as unilateral or bilateral with the old terms of diplegia, quadriplegia, etc being abandoned.

The definition of a diagnosis identifies explicitly which cases are to be recorded under that term and, by implication, which are to be specifically excluded. The definition is the basis for planningExpand
Cerebral Palsy: Current Opinions on Definition, Epidemiology, Risk Factors, Classification and Treatment Options
TLDR
Current views on definitions, risk factors, diagnostics and treatment of CP as well as comorbid problems, eg, drug-resistant epilepsy are presented. Expand
Cerebral palsy
TLDR
The use of more appropriate outcome measures encompassing quality of life and participation is helping to deliver treatments which are more meaningful for people with cerebral palsy and their carers. Expand
Evaluation of risk factors for cerebral palsy
Cerebral palsy (CP) has been identified as one of the most important and common causes of childhood disabilities worldwide and is often accompanied by multiple comorbidities. CP is defined as a groupExpand
Cerebral palsy: clinical care and neurological rehabilitation
TLDR
As the life expectancy of individuals with CP approaches that of the general population, therapies must be developed that address the needs of adults ageing with disability. Expand
Cerebral Palsy: State of Art
TLDR
Fetal neurosonography with a growing number of studies promises better understanding of the normal functional maturation of the human brain which may lead to effective prevention and treatment of cerebral palsy. Expand
Australian Cerebral Palsy Child Study: protocol of a prospective population based study of motor and brain development of preschool aged children with cerebral palsy
TLDR
A large population-based study of early motor development and brain structure in a representative sample of preschool aged children with CP, using direct clinical assessment and structural MRI is described. Expand
Stability of the Gross Motor Function Classification System in adults with cerebral palsy
TLDR
It is shown that the GMFCS level observed around the age of 12 years is highly predictive of adult motor function, which provides important information for individuals with CP, their families, and care providers as they plan for future care needs and rehabilitation intervention. Expand
Evaluation of Risk Factors for Epilepsy in Pediatric Patients with Cerebral Palsy
TLDR
Maternal hypertension, neonatal convulsions, and delivery by cesarean section were the most important factors increasing the risk of epilepsy as well as drug-resistant epilepsy in the analyzed group of patients with CP. Expand

TLDR
The group reached agreement on a definition of cerebral palsy, but ran into difficulties after this and ran into considerable difficulty when they went on to discuss the classification of various types of cerebral paresis. Expand
Cerebral palsy diagnosis in children over age 1 year: standard criteria.
TLDR
This retrospective chart study of 60 children with handicaps over age 1 year suggests that once progressive diseases and syndromes with a cerebral palsylike motor component are excluded, a child with abnormalities in 4 or more Major Motor Categories may be classified as having cerebral palsY.

Cerebral Palsy Epidemiology: Where are We Now and Where are We Going?
OVER the past decade, regular international meetings devoted to the state of the art in the epidemiology of cerebral palsy have been held: in California in 1987, in Cambridge in 1989 and in Brioni,Expand
Antecedents of cerebral palsy. Multivariate analysis of risk.
We examined prenatal and perinatal factors predicting cerebral palsy, using multivariate analysis to investigate which factors were most important and the proportion of cases for which theyExpand
Cerebral Palsies: Epidemiology and Causal Pathways
TLDR
This work has shown that postneonatally acquired cerebral palsy is a more complex condition than previously thought, and the role of social and medical factors in the development of the disease and its management is still to be investigated. Expand

TLDR
Over the years, epidemiologists have attempted to follow the Cartesian approach, not least those Epidemiologists who are interested in that heterogeneous group of conditions called the “cerebral palsies”. Expand
Delayed‐onset dystonia due to perinatal or early childhood asphyxia
TLDR
Since some of these patients closely resembled cases of idiopathic torsion dystonia, the prior occurrence of asphyxia should be used as a criterion of exclusion for that diagnosis. Expand
Effect of hypothermia and cardiac arrest on outcome of near-drowning accidents in children.
TLDR
It is concluded that prolonged in-hospital resuscitation and aggressive treatment of near-drowning victims who initially have absence of vital signs and are not hypothermic either results in eventual death or increases the number of survivors with a persistent vegetative state. Expand
