Blood pressure in adults with cerebral palsy: a systematic review and meta-analysis of individual participant data
The findings underscore the importance of clinical screening for blood pressure in individuals with cerebral palsy beginning in young adulthood and investigate potential risk factors for hypertension.
Mapping the focus of research conducted with adults with cerebral palsy: an overview of systematic reviews.
PURPOSE To map research conducted with adults with cerebral palsy (CP) to the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) to understand the array of research available,
Health Conditions in Adults With Cerebral Palsy: The Association With CP Subtype and Severity of Impairments
The prevalence of several common health conditions is related to the CP subtype and severity of impairments, indicating that CP plays a role in the development of these health conditions.
Health service use among adults with cerebral palsy: a mixed methods systematic review protocol
This mixed method systematic review aims to identify, appraise and synthesise quantitative and qualitative literature examining health service use among adults with CP and outcomes of interest are the proportion of adults using health services frequency of use and experiences of health services from the perspectives of adults withCP, caregivers and health service providers.
Correlates of Mental Health in Adolescents and Young Adults with Cerebral Palsy: A Cross-Sectional Analysis of the MyStory Project
A high prevalence of mental health problems and co-occurring physical problems was found in AYA with CP and Integrating mental support into regular care for AYA with CP is recommended.
Pain, health-related quality of life, and mental health of adolescents and adults with cerebral palsy in urban South Africa.
Adolescents and adults with CP living in urban South Africa reported a higher level of disability due to pain and lower physical health-related quality of life compared to typically developing peers, while their level of depression, anxiety, and self-esteem was not different.
Population-based study on the prevalence and clinical profile of adults with cerebral palsy in Northern Ireland
The prevalence of CP in adults is similar to other common neurological conditions such as multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease and the needs of adults with CP vary widely with almost half having two or more associated impairments that may require multiprofessional and multiagency coordination.


Survey Results of Pain Treatments in Adults with Cerebral Palsy
Although participants reportedly accessed pain care from a variety of providers and perceived that several types of treatments were effective, many of the treatments rated as effective were rarely used or provided.
Pain in young people aged 13 to 17 years with cerebral palsy: cross-sectional, multicentre European study
Pain in young people with CP is highly prevalent and clinicians should routinely assess pain and the efficacy of medical and therapeutic interventions causing pain should be re-examined to establish if their benefit justifies the pain and fear of pain that accompany them.
Age-related changes of pain experience in cerebral palsy and healthy individuals.
Neither pain reports nor touch sensitivity or quality of life were influenced by age in CP, whereas significant age-related changes were observed in healthy participants, and multiple regression analyses showed that age was the best predictor of current pain intensity in healthy controls but not in individuals with CP.
The prevalence, location, severity, and daily impact of pain reported by youth and young adults with cerebral palsy.
The gender differences in the severity and impact of pain and the overall and high prevalence of pain reported here provide healthcare practitioners with an increased awareness of pain distribution/characteristics among young adults with CP.
Clinical Prognostic Messages From a Systematic Review on Cerebral Palsy
OBJECTIVE: To summarize evidence on the rates of co-occurring impairments, diseases, and functional limitations with cerebral palsy into succinct clinical messages. METHODS: A search was conducted of
Pain symptoms in patients with severe cerebral palsy: Prevalence among patients with higher degree of locomotor impairment
Pain is prevalent in individuals with severe CP and it is more prevalent in patients with a higher degree of locomotor impairment (GMFCS – level V), according to the degree of motor function impairment.
