Because of the availability of new knowledge about the neurobiology of developmental brain injury, information that epidemiology and modern brain imaging is providing, the availability of more precise measuring instruments of patient performance, and the increase in studies evaluating the efficacy of therapy for the consequences of injury, the need for reconsideration of the definition and classification of cerebral palsy (CP) has become evident. Pertinent material was reviewed at an… Expand

Definition and classification of cerebral palsy
  • R. Armstrong
  • Medicine
  • Developmental medicine and child neurology
  • 2007
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. Expand
Classification systems in cerebral palsy.
TLDR
The purpose of this article is to update the orthopaedic community on the current classification systems for patients with cerebral palsy, which will be of value to surgeons in determining patients' suitability for certain treatments and will also assist them in reviewing current literature in cerebral palsY. Expand
51 – Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral palsy (CP) describes a group of motor impairment syndromes secondary to a wide range of genetic and acquired disorders of early brain development. This definition allows inclusion of newExpand
Definition and classification of cerebral palsy: a historical perspective
  • C. Morris
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Developmental medicine and child neurology. Supplement
  • 2007
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
Clinical Classification of Cerebral Palsy
TLDR
The objectives of this chapter are to review the various classifications of CP, to highlight the clinical features used in theVarious classifications, to outline the recent functional classification of CP and to highlight how these recent classifications guide current management. Expand
Early Diagnosis and Classification of Cerebral Palsy: An Historical Perspective and Barriers to an Early Diagnosis
TLDR
Diagnosis and classification are different, involving different instruments, and are more accurately conducted separately in infants, whereas they are fundamentally interconnected in older children and inform therapeutic decisions. Expand
Assessment tools for cerebral palsy: new directions
The extent and nature of a child’s disability is determined, not only by their health condition and subsequent developmental deficits and activity limitations, but is also largely influenced byExpand
Establishing the diagnosis of cerebral palsy.
  • N. Paneth
  • Medicine
  • Clinical obstetrics and gynecology
  • 2008
TLDR
It is important not to make the diagnosis too early in infancy, especially when the signs are not severe, as resolution of early neuromotor abnormalities does occur, particularly in premature infants. Expand
Recent advances in the neuroimaging and neuropsychology of cerebral palsy
  • A. Gosling
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Applied neuropsychology. Child
  • 2017
TLDR
The improved delineation of differing presentations resulting from more advanced imaging techniques with emerging links to function and some of the evidence for efficacious interventions and the extent to which these interventions are derived from neuropsychological theory and practice are discussed. Expand
Is Cerebral Palsy a Wastebasket Diagnosis?
  • T. Sanger
  • Medicine
  • Journal of child neurology
  • 2008
TLDR
The statement that cerebral palsy is a “wastebasket” diagnosis has become so familiar that it is not uncommon to hear it restated by patients as well as doctors, which suggests that perhaps cerebral palsY is not a diagnosis requiring the care of neurologists who are accustomed to more specific and scientifically justifiable terminology.

Practice Parameter: Diagnostic assessment of the child with cerebral palsy
TLDR
Neuroimaging results in children with CP are commonly abnormal and may help determine the etiology, and screening for associated conditions is warranted as part of the initial evaluation. Expand
TERMINOLOGY AND CLASSIFICATION OF CEREBRAL PALSY
  • M. Bax
  • Medicine

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
Development and reliability of a system to classify gross motor function in children with cerebral palsy
TLDR
A five‐level classification system analogous to the staging and grading systems used in medicine, which has application for clinical practice, research, teaching, and administration is developed. Expand

  • C. Cans
  • Medicine

TLDR
A network of CP surveys and registers was formed in 14 centres in eight countries across Europe to standardize the definition of CP, inclusion/exclusion criteria, classification, and description of children with CP, and a basis for services planning among European countries. Expand

Surveillance of cerebral palsy in Europe
TLDR
The aim was to develop a common database of children with CP in order to monitor trends in CP and provide information for service planning and raise standards of assessment and care for children with Cerebral Palsy. Expand
Limb distribution, motor impairment, and functional classification of cerebral palsy.
TLDR
An analysis of function (GMFCS) by impairment (limb distribution) indicates that the latter clinical characteristic does not add prognostic value over GMFCS, and the value of these subgroups as an indicator of mobility is limited in comparison with the classification of severity with the GM FCS. Expand
Testing of the spinal alignment and range of motion measure: a discriminative measure of posture and flexibility for children with cerebral palsy.
TLDR
The SAROMM has sufficient reliability and validity for use with children with CP in clinical and research settings by rehabilitation therapists and is supported by a significant contribution of GMFCS level and age to the SAROMm score. Expand
