Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy for People with Cerebral Palsy

A Problem-Based Approach to Assessment and Management

Christine Imms, Karen J. Dodd
e altri

editore: Mac Keith Press

pagine: 256

This book is a practical resource for physiotherapists and occupational therapists who support people with cerebral palsy, helping them to solve the problems with movement and other impairments that so often accompany cerebral palsy, so that they can be more active and better able to participate in roles such as study, work, recreation and relationships. The first chapters provide the background to the clinical reasoning approach that informs the whole text, as well as an overview of therapeutic interventions. The subsequent chapters present clinical situations that therapists will encounter in the course of their work with individuals with cerebral palsy across the lifespan. Each chapter describes a case in detail, including the reasoning behind assessment and treatment choices, interventions and outcomes. The themes emphasized throughout the book are the use of the clinical reasoning approach of the intervention process model, the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health as a framework to help therapists inform patient and family decision-making, family-centred approaches in developing and implementing therapeutic strategies, and multidisciplinary team work.

The Spastic Forms of Cerebral Palsy

Adriano Ferrari, Giovanni Cioni

editore: Springer Verlag

pagine: 378

by A. Berthoz The publication of this volume, edited by Adriano Ferrari and Giovanni Cioni, is a major event for several reasons. Most importantly, it concerns an area of child pathology that has yet to be fully explored. In this context, the authors' efforts to compile their observations as well as those of other clinicians and to elaborate their theories have resulted in an ess- tial step in the field of cerebral palsy (CP). The originality of the book is its very clear focus, while at the same time the authors have encouraged the book's contributors to express their ideas and personal opinions. This leads sometimes to redundancy, but this is precisely one of the benefits of the book - cause the same problems are then exposed from different points of views. The reader is thus spared the normative attempts of many other pathology books, in which the compl- ity of a given disease is hidden by the authors' or editors' desire to impose a rigid taxo- my or epidemiology.

Non-Epileptic Childhood Paroxysmal Disorders

Francis J. DiMario

editore: Oxford University Press Inc

pagine: 400

This is a book written for those of us who evaluate the many quirks and behaviors encountered in the lives of developing children. The number of important pathologic conditions that befall this age group is staggering. However, equally staggering is the number of episodic and often benign or developmentally programmed paroxysmal events encountered in this population. The nature of these episodic events in many circumstances leads to their erroneous identification as epileptic in nature. It is my hope that this book will serve as a compendium of those episodically manifest entities often uniquely observed in childhood. The book is organized with some foundations in terminology and an in depth analysis of epidemiology of many of these disorders. As best possible, epidemiologic data are compiled with incidence and prevalence figures provided for comparisons. Discussion on the deductive approach to their clinical assessment is provided along with emphasis on the diagnostic clues contained within the descriptive and observational information provided during clinical evaluation. A categorization of the differential features and ages of presentation are provided as a means to help direct logical diagnostic considerations. Subsequent chapters are organized by major topic (i.e.) Syncopes, Sleep Phenomena, Somatizaion, Factitious Illness, Movement Disorders, and Migraine Syndromes. Each chapter provides discourse on the general principles of underlying pthophysiologic mechanisms and curent knowledge about the chapter topic under discussion. Specific clinical entities encompassed within the general topic are then discussed individually with particular attention to their clinical descriptions and presentations, natural history, particular pathophysiology, genetics, pertinent laboratory, and treatments. The text is aplified by pertinent tables highlighting diagnostic criteria where this applies and reference information where needed. The text is generously referenced to encompass the most relevant information available.

Cerebral Palsy

Principles and Management

Christos P. Panteliadis

editore: Thieme Publishing Group

pagine: 267

Cerebral palsy poses multiple diagnostic and therapeutic dilemmas. It is not only a medical and scientific issue, but also one with many social, ethical, and economic implications. With many contributions from top European specialists, this book begins with chapters on the history and terminology, classification, incidence and prevalence, etiology, and neuropathology of cerebral palsy. Then diagnosis is covered with extensive chapters on the clinical characteristics of CP, differential diagnosis, and assessing with ultrasound, MRI, and nuclear/molecular imaging. Finally, detailed chapters provide comprehensive information on the newest treatment modalities for CP, including treatment with botulinum toxin, dorsal rhizotomy, intrathecal pharmacotherapy, stereotactic operations, and more. The book closes with chapters considering the psychological and psychosocial aspects of the condition. With its strong interdisciplinary foundation, this book is certain to be a valuable addition to the library of pediatricians, neurologists, and others who may be involved in the care of patients with cerebral palsy.

Pediatric hydrocephalus

a cura di G. Cinalli, W. J. Maixner

editore: Springer Verlag

pagine: 477

In the last ten years the pediatric neurosurgeon has witnessed a real revolution in the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric hydrocephalus, the most frequently encountered condition in everyday clinical practice. The evolution of MRI and the advent of neuroendoscopic surgery have resuscitated the interest in the classification, etiology and pathophysiology of hydrocephalus. The book offers an updated overview on the recent progress in this field, and a new approach to hydrocephalus: the reader will find in it a modern and new presentation of an old disease, where genetics, endoscopy, cost-effectiveness analyses and many other aspects of the various therapies are extensively discussed. The volume will be useful not only for neurosurgeons, but for all specialists interested in the various aspects of hydrocephalus: pediatricians, radiologists, endocrinologists, pathologists and geneticists.

Emicrania e cefalea tensiva in età evolutiva

editore: Franco Angeli

pagine: 240

L'emicrania senza aura e la cefalea sono i più comuni tipi di cefalea idiopatica in età evolutiva. Sebbene la cefalea costituisca un'entità nosografica ben definita, in età pediatrica differisce in alcune caratteristiche da quella dell'adulto. Il testo presenta i criteri classificativi della cefalea, gli aspetti eziopatogenetici e fisiopatologici. Viene inoltre proposto un iter diagnostico, con l'indicazione dei fattori predittivi di rischio delle forme secondarie. Un'ampia sezione viene infine dedicata agli aspetti terapeutici, con descrizione delle più recenti evidenze scientifiche in merito ai presidi farmacologici e non, sia per la cura che per la prevenzione.
