Cerebral palsy | McMaster Pathophysiology Review

The premature neonatal brain is susceptible to two main pathologies: intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) and periventricular leukomalacia (PVL). Although both pathologies increase the risk of CP, PVL is more closely related to CP and is the leading cause in preterm infants. The term PVL describes white matter in the periventricular region that is underdeveloped or damaged (“leukomalacia”). Both IVH and PVL cause CP because the corticospinal tracts, composed of descending motor axons, course through the periventricular region.

Sleep positioning systems for children with cerebral palsy | Cochrane

Hip migration (where the top of the thigh bone gradually moves away from the pelvis) affects a substantial number of children with cerebral palsy and is often associated with pain. For some children with cerebral palsy, particularly those who are unable to walk, equipment is sometimes recommended to help children sleep in positions that reduce or prevent hip migration. This equipment is known as 'sleep positioning systems' and can be prescribed along with equipment designed to support posture while sitting or standing, or both, during the day. Together, these are referred to as 24-hour postural management programmes.

Intrathecal baclofen for treating spasticity in children with cerebral palsy | Cochrane

Spasticity, which is an increase in muscle tone, is the most common difficulty with movement seen in children with cerebral palsy. Baclofen is a medication which acts on receptors in the brain and spinal cord to reduce abnormal muscle tone. It has been used as an oral medication for many years. The disadvantages of oral administration are that only a small amount of the medication crosses the blood-brain barrier before it can exert an effect, and that the dose is limited by the unwanted effect of excessive sedation. The administration of baclofen into the fluid surrounding the spinal cord overcomes these problems. This treatment is called intrathecal baclofen therapy and it is administered via a pump placed under the skin connected to a catheter which enters the membranes covering the spinal cord to deliver the baclofen directly into the fluid surrounding the spinal cord and brain.
