In the validation set, these data predicted a 2-year suboptimal neuromotor status with a sensitivity of 0. Recommended articles Citing articles 0. Pediatr Neurol ; Dev Med Child Neurol.

Design Population-based observational study. You will be able to get a quick price and instant asswssment to reuse the content in many different ways. Thus, our study confirms that cerebral lesions are the most important predictors of cerebral palsy in preterm infants.

A simple 0, 1, and 2 scoring system is proposed. Nevertheless, this study was population based, and not institution based, which is a strength because it better describes real-life conditions.

The study population was divided into training and validation sets. Files in this Data Supplement: Forgot your user name or password? A simple 0, 1, and 2 scoring system is proposed.

Update of the Amiel-Tison neurologic assessment for the term neonate or at 40 weeks corrected age.

The classifications obtained in the validation group are shown. Thus, gestational age should not be the only criterion used. Log in via Institution.

Mild MRI abnormalities, rather than mild ultrasound abnormalities, were associated with poorer neurodevelopmental outcomes. Results From the infants deemed eligible, were enrolled in the LIFT cohort and received a neurological examination at term.

SN’G The Tich conceptualised and designed the study, carried out the initial analyses, drafted the initial manuscript and approved the final manuscript as submitted. Thus, the neurological examination at term, including the five following elements feeding autonomy and non-nutritive sucking, visual fixing and tracking, comparison of ventral and dorsal curvatures, pull to sit and reverse manoeuvre and righting reactionshould be assessed at term by a neonatologist or by a general practitioner during the follow-up of preterm infants.

Interobserver reliability of the Amiel-Tison neurological assessment at term. The specificity of all items was higher than 0. A distinct final synthesis is proposed for term newborn infants in the first week of life and for preterm neonates at approximately 40 weeks of age corrected. However, it could be a real challenge because the number of surviving infants increases with gestational age, neurooogical would potentially lead to excessive costs and lack of resources for universal access to follow-up.
