Objective: The objective of this study is to determine the factors that affect the adherence to home exercise programs among caregivers of children with cerebral palsy (CP). Methods: The caregivers of 147 children with CP were recruited for the study. The adherence status of the caregivers to an exercise program was assessed by a survey. The sociodemographic data of both children and caregivers; family characteristics, CP type, and Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS) level of the disabled child; and inventories related to mental health and burnout of the caregivers were evaluated to determine whether these data were r . . .elated with the adherence status or not. Results: Using statistically significant parameters in univariate tests [age, weight, and GMFCS level of the children and age and Maslach emotional exhaustion (EE) score of the caregiver], a logistic regression model was constructed to predict the adherence to exercise programs. GMFCS level and Maslach EE score were statistically significant independent factors that predicted the adherence to home exercise programs. Conclusion: The severity of the functional limitation of children with CP seems to enhance the adherence of caregivers to home exercise programs, while the burnout of caregivers has a negative impact. Caregivers should be supported socially and medically for a successful home exercise program. © 2014 by Turkish Society of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Daha fazlası Daha az

The study utilized an interview format to examine the difficulties experienced by mothers of children with cerebral palsy. Interviews were conducted in the province of Zonguldak between December 2013 and February 2014, Turkey, at a special rehabilitation center with 15 children with cerebral palsy and their mothers registered at the center. A voice recorder was used during the interviews, but since the mothers expressed their unwillingness to have their voices recorded during the interviews when they talked about their sexual lives, face to face interviews were held in a suitable physical environment without the use of a recorder. A . . . semi-structured questionnaire was used during the interviews. The couples are troubled with many difficulties that include personal relations, social and economic problems, as well as issues involving the sick child’s care and education. Many difficulties that include personal relations, social and economic problems, as well as issues involving the sick child’s care and education, trouble couples with children diagnosed with cerebral palsy. In connection with these difficulties, it was also seen that the situation took a toll on the sexual lives of parents. In the light of these findings, our recommendation is that rehabilitation centers catering to the education of children with cerebral palsy should have qualified nurses on hand to provide a professional approach to reviewing the difficulties mothers face and emphasizing the importance of sexuality. © 2014, Springer Science+Business Media New York Daha fazlası Daha az

Objective: The aim of this study was to determine the risk factors, clinical features and associated problems of children attending the outpatient cerebral palsy (CP) clinic. Material and Methods: Data of the 89 cases who had admitted to outpatient CP clinic between May 2005 and June 2010 was evaluated retrospectively. Results: Thirty-seven (37.1%) were girl, and 56 (62.9%) were boy of the 89 cases recruited to the study. Mean age was 84.4 ± 52.2 months. Spastic CP was the most common type with the ratio of %94.3. Spastic diplegia was the most common sub-group (47.2%). The most frequently encountered risk factor was low birth weight . . . (48.3%), the second was premature birth (41.6%), and the third was neonatal convulsions (33.7%). The highest frequencies of additional problems were mental retardation (39.3%), speech-language pathologies (34.8%), and vision problems (31.4%), respectively. Ankle-foot orthosis or a variation was prescribed to 54.9% and reverse walker was prescribed 20.2% of the patients. Multi-level botulinum toxin-A injection were performed in 32.5% of the cases and 8.9% of them were referred for surgery. Conclusion: A close follow-up and early rehabilitation of high risk babies in the period of infancy, in which the neuroplasticity is the highest, is important. The cerebral palsy rehabilitation should be multidisciplinary and additional problems should be evaluated and treated properly.

Background. The caregivers of children with cerebral palsy (CP) should overcome the difficulties and complications arising from their children's impairments. It may be stressful for the caregivers when the balance between these inevitable demands and their own social needs impairs. Therefore, the primary caregiver, may experience several psycho-social problems. Aim. To compare the quality of life (QoL), mental health and burnout of caregivers of patients with CP and healthy controls. The effects of the functional limitations of children with CP on the QoL, mental health and burnout of caregivers have also been evaluated. Design. Cro . . .ss-sectional, comparative.Setting. Outpatient. Population. One hundred and forty-three caregivers of children with CP and 60 caregivers of typically developing children were recruited for the study. Materials and methods. The inventories related to QoL, mental health and burnout of the caregivers for both groups were compared. The correlations between functional limitations of the children with CP and QoL, mental health and burnout of their caregivers have been analyzed. Results. Caregivers in CP group had poorer QoL, worser mental health, and higher burnout levels compared to the controls. The functional limitations of the children with CP were correlated with impairment of QoL and depression scores of their caregivers, but not with the anxiety or burnout scores. Conclusion. Having a disabled child has interference on caregivers' QoL and mental health and increases the burnout. Furthermore, as the functional impairment level of the child increases, the interference does too. Clinical rehabilitation impact. Health professionals working in this area should also consider the mental health and the QoL of caregivers and should develop interventions that support and nurture the family as a whole Daha fazlası Daha az

We aimed to assess the functional status, urinary problems, and awareness of these problems in adults with cerebral palsy (CP) and their relationship with the quality of life. One-hundred-seventeen adults with CP (53 women, 64 men) were included in this study. Subjects were asked to fill out a urological questionnaire which dealt with urinary symptoms, awareness of urinary problems, and pharmacological treatment they received. Subjects were also assessed with the Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS), Functional Independence Measures (FIM), Functional Mobility Scale (FMS), and King’s Health Questionnaire (KHQ). The mean . . . age of the subjects was 25.3 ± 7.8 years. Of the patients, 83.8% were currently unemployed, 95.7% were single, and 96.5% were living with family. Of the patients, 20.5% had experienced frequency, 38.5% had nocturia, 48.7% had urgency, and 36.8% had urge urinary incontinence. Approximately 80% of the patients did not refer to physician due to urinary problems, and 60% of patients were not recorded history about urinary problem by any physician. Urge urinary incontinence was statistically more frequent in females than males (54.7 and 21.9%,respectively, p Daha fazlası Daha az

Our objective in this study was to assess the changes in medial gastrocnemius muscle (GCM) stiffness after botulinum toxin A (BTA) injection in children with cerebral palsy (CP) by using acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) elastography and to research the usability of this technique in clinical practice. Twenty-four spastic lower extremities of 12 children with CP were assessed. BTA injection treatment was applied to the medial GCM. Muscle stiffness was measured with the ARFI technique before the procedure and a month after the procedure. The patients were assessed with the modified Ashworth scale (MAS) in the physiotherapy depa . . .rtment at about the same time. Shear wave velocity (SWV) values and MAS scores before and after the treatment were compared. Mean SWV values were measured as 3.20 +/- 0.14 m/s before BTA and as 2.45 +/- 0.21 m/s after BTA, and the difference between them was found to be statistically significant (p < 0.001). Mean MAS score (2.33 +/- 0.70) after BTA decreased significantly when compared to the score before BTA (2.96 +/- 0.62) (p = 0.001). SWV values positively correlated with MAS scores (rho = 0.578, p = 0.003). The interobserver agreement expressed as interclass correlation coefficient (ICC) was 0.65 (95% CI 0.33-0.84, p < 0.001). ARFI elastography for identifying structural changes that occur in the spastic muscle after BTA injection in children with CP can yield more valuable information with combined use of MAS Daha fazlası Daha az

To evaluate the feasibility of quantitative analysis of muscle stiffness in the medial gastrocnemius muscle (GCM) by acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) ultrasound elastography in children with spastic cerebral palsy (CP). Seventeen children with spastic CP and 25 healthy children participated in the study between the years 2016-2017. The medial GCM in the CP group was assessed using the Modified Ashworth Scale (MAS) by a physiatrist. ARFI was used to measure the shear-wave velocities (SWVs) of the medial GCM. The mean SWV value for each MAS score was calculated and used for statistics. The mean SWV values of the medial GCM in t . . .he CP and healthy groups were 3.17 +/- 0.81 m/s (mean +/- SD) and 1.45 +/- 0.25 m/s (mean +/- SD), respectively. The SWV of the medial GCM significantly increased in the CP patients when compared with controls (p < 0.001). In addition, the SWV values were correlated with the MAS scores (p < 0.001). The interobserver agreement expressed as the interclass correlation coefficient was 0.65 (95% CI 0.33-0.84, p < 0.001). ARFI imaging demonstrated a difference in muscle stiffness in the medial GCM between the CP and healthy groups. This method is a feasible imaging modality for the noninvasive assessment of contracting muscles in children with CP Daha fazlası Daha az
