AIM: The aim of this study was to identify and examine the psychometric properties of muscle tone assessments for children aged 0 to 12 years. METHOD: Four electronic databases were searched to identify studies that included assessments of resting and/or active muscle tone. Methodological quality and overall psychometric evidence of studies were rated using the COnsensus-based Standards for the selection of health Measurement INstruments checklist.

OBJECTIVE: This prospective study investigated the relationship between Amiel-Tison neurological assessment (ATNA) in preterm children and their psychosocial functioning in adolescence. METHODS: From the initial group of 45 children regularly assessed by the ATNA from term until the age of 2 years, 27 participated in the follow-up at 13 years. RESULTS: Of the three groups categorized by neurological signs as normal, intermediate or abnormal, parents of adolescents with normal ATNA reported the lowest number of executive function problems (p = 0...

Perinatal hypoxia-ischemia is a specific and important pathological event in neonatal care practice. The data on relationship between the concentrations of cytokines in blood and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and perinatal brain injury are scarce. The aim of this study is to evaluate changes in interleukin (IL-1β, IL-6, and IL-18) and tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) levels in newborns with perinatal hypoxia (PNH). CSF and serum samples of 35 term and near-term (35-40 weeks) newborns with PNH, at the age of 3-96 hours, were analyzed using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay...

AIMS: To determine whether the brain disturbances develop in late-onset intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) before blood flow redistribution towards the fetal brain (detected by Doppler measurements in the middle cerebral artery and umbilical artery). Further, to evaluate predictive values of Doppler arterial indices and umbilical cord blood gases and pH for early functional and/or morphological brain disturbances in late-onset IUGR. STUDY DESIGN: This cohort study included 60 singleton term pregnancies with placental insufficiency caused late-onset IUGR (IUGR occurring after 34 gestational weeks)...

AIM: To determine if transient neurological abnormalities (TNA) at 9 months corrected age predict cognitive, behavioral, and motor outcomes at 6 years of age in extremely preterm infants. METHOD: A cohort of 124 extremely preterm infants (mean gestational age 25.5wks; 55 males, 69 females), admitted to our unit between 2001 and 2003, were classified based on the Amiel-Tison Neurological Assessment at 9 months and 20 months corrected age as having TNA (n=17), normal neurological assessment (n=89), or neurologically abnormal assessment (n=18)...

BACKGROUND: High risk newborns are most vulnerable to develop neuro-developmental delay (NDD). Early detection of delay in this group and identification of associated perinatal factors and their prevention can prevent disability in later life. DESIGN AND METHODS: Observational cohort study. Field based tracking and neuro-developmental screening of high risk newborns discharged between January 2010 to June 2012 from a district Hospital in India was conducted by a team of developmental specialists, using standardized tools like Denver Developmental Screening Tool II, Trivandrum Developmental Screening Chart and Amiel-Tison method of tone assessment...

INTRODUCTION: The aim of this study was to evaluate the Amiel-Tison neurological examination (AT) and cranial ultrasound at term for predicting the neurological result at 12 months in newborns with neurological risk. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The study included 89 newborns with high risk of neurological damage, who were discharged from the Neonatal Intensive Care of the Hospital Zonal Bariloche, Argentina. The assessment consisted of a neurological examination and cranial ultrasound at term, and neurological examination and evaluation of development at 12 months...

BACKGROUND: The risk of cognitive disability in preterm infants is higher than in general population. The Amiel-Tison neurological assessment could be a useful tool for early identification of preterm children at risk of cognitive disability in school age. This study investigated the value of categorization of neurological signs assessed by the Amiel-Tison neurological assessment in the first 2 years of life in relation to cognitive performance at school age in a group of preterm children...

OBJECTIVES: To document the experiences of the intervention given to children who attended the developmental therapy clinic of Child Development Centre (CDC) Kerala, a specialized clinic for providing developmental intervention/therapy for babies less than two years with developmental delay/disability. METHODS: All the babies referred to this speciality clinic from developmental screening/evaluation clinics of CDC were registered in the clinic and re-evaluation was done using CDC grading for head holding, sitting, standing, Amiel Tison passive angles, and Trivandrum Developmental Screening Chart (TDSC) 0-2 y...

OBJECTIVE: To estimate if an acute postasphyxial renal injury in newborns could indicate a neurological outcome. METHODS: We conducted a prospective clinical trial on 50 full-term newborns with 5-minute Apgar score <7 (asphyxiated group) and a control group of 50 full-term newborns with 5-min Apgar score ≥ 7 (non-asphyxiated group). Renal function was assessed on the third day of life by serum values of creatinine, cystatin C and β2-microglobulin (β2M) and glomerular filtration rate (GFR)...
