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. A cohort of extremely preterm infants mean gestational age 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.

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. 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.

Amiel-Tison method is a commonly used technique for assessing tone and neurological status of infants. There is a paucity of data on the reliability of visual assessment of angles, a component of this method. We compared the visual and the goniometric assessment of adductor and popliteal angles in infants with hypertonia and neurologically normal controls.

The population of beurological infants is increasing and resources available for follow-up are limited. Early markers are needed to identify children who will show major as well as more subtle neurodevelopmental aszessment. At a time of increasing demands on South African limited healthcare resources, there is a need for an assessment method that can reliably predict neurological deficits in high-risk infants at an early age.

The objective of the study is to determine whether neurklogical qualitative assessment of fidgety movements will predict the neurological outcome of very low birth weight and extremely low birth weight infants admitted to Tygerberg Children’s Hospital TCHAssessmdnt Town, South Africa.

A prospective descriptive study was conducted using Prechtl’s method of qualitative assessment of fidgety movements at three months corrected age CA. However, the stability of the ATNA has never been formally assessed. We compared fetal behavior FB in high risk and normal pregnancies using four dimensional ultrasound 4DUS. The clinical and electrographic signs of hypoxic-ischaemic encephalopathy HIE assessmejt over the first days of life.


We examined the evolution of neurological signs over the first 3 days of life, and determined whether serial administration of the Amiel-Tison Neurological Assessment at Term ATNAT would predict neurodevelopmental outcome at 24 months. To our knowledge, a systematic complete assessment of these disabilities among adoptees from Eastern Europe has not yet aassessment reported. Both the Amiel-Tison Neurological Nekrological at Term and the Amiel-Tison Neurological Assessment From Birth to 6 Years Old are based on the same conceptual framework and both can be used throughout childhood; however, interobserver reliability must be evaluated before these assessments can be introduced into neurodevelopmental follow-up.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the interobserver reliability of both assessments. To study the correlations between neurological signs and developmental performance, and to analyze the value of neurological signs in identification of developmental disabilities.

A group of 26 preterm infants gestational age from 23 weeks to 36 weeks was studied.

The neurological assessment described by Amiel-Tison and Gosselin was performed at term age and repeated every 3 months up to the age of 2, when the sum of all adverse findings was categorized. The neurological basis of an increased incidence of cerebral palsy CP in preterm males is unknown. This study examined neonatal brain structure on magnetic resonance imaging MRI and diffusion tensor imaging DTI at term-equivalent age, sex, and neurodevelopment at 1 year 6 months on the basis of the Amiel-Tison neurological examination, Gross Motor Function Classification System, and Bayley Scales of Infant Development in 78 very-low-birthweight preterm children 41 males, 37 females; mean gestational age The aim of this study was to evaluate the outcome of children with asymptomatic congenital human cytomegalovirus infection identified from a cohort of newborn infants screened for congenital HCMV infection compared with matched uninfected control subjects.

There is a paucity of information on long-term outcome of infants who have suffered from meconium aspiration syndrome MAS in the neonatal period. The objective of the study was to assess the neurodevelopment status of MAS infants and compare the possible effects of different variables that are known to affect the later developmental outcome.

Abnormal movement patterns during the fidgety period, as identified by Prechtl’s method for qualitative assessment of general movements, and the presence of minor neurologic and cranial signs at age 2 years, as defined by Amiel-Tison, are related to minor developmental disorders. Our study analyzed the relationship between the two assessment methods in 45 preterm infants.

Cerebral palsy was identified in 4, minimal cerebral palsy in 2, and the Amiel-Tison triad in 4 children; in all, continuously abnormal patterns of general movements were present.

Previous studies have led to speculation that the association between ropivacaine and clonidine might be more effective than ropivacaine alone.

We examined the maternal-fetal effects of two pharmacological approaches: We identified severely brain damaged infants and those with optimal neurological findings and compared fetal with neonatal findings. The new scoring system was retrospectively applied in a group of low-risk pregnancies. Such a network was implemented in the Pays de la Loire region in Our objective is to evaluate the feasibility and the capacity to detect infants with an incapacitating condition at nine months corrected age and the patents’satisfaction with such a network.

Periventricular haemorrhagic infarction PVHI is a complication of preterm birth that may lead to impairment and disability. Early diagnosis is possible by cranial ultrasonography CUS. This article reviews the interpretation of the fetal motor repertoire in the light of neurophysiology and clinical neurology.

The continuity of the maturative process from the fetus to the neonate allows us to speculate on the predictive value of optimal and non-optimal neurological function as observed in the fetus and their morphological consequences. Neonatologists know that early prediction concerning outcome is reliable only at the two ends of the spectrum, e. The aims of this study were to calculate concordance among results of the assessment of a population of neonates by using a screening version of neurologic assessment developed by our group with the Amiel-Tison examination, to evaluate distribution of the findings for each item in the studied population, and to develop an optimality score to aid in the detection of possible deviations in infants.

Infants in this report include infants born consecutively; they were mainly at-term infants, or preterm infants who, when reaching at-term corrected age, were suspected to be abnormal with a wide spectrum of complications. Newborns were tested by neurologic screening and neurologic examination. Information provided by the neonatal neurologic assessment is important for identifying infants with neurologic abnormalities at a very early age.


The aim of this study was to compare two distinct approaches to the neurologic assessment of newborns: The results of both assessments were studied in a group of 45 preterm infants with different risk factors for brain damage that were compared at term age and at a corrected age of 3 months. The present paper reviews the methods available for neurological or neuromotor evaluation at preschool age.

General textbooks on pediatric neurology describe the neurological examination at preschool age in terms of the assessment of the evaluation of cranial nerves, muscle tone, muscle power, reflexes, and the presence of abnormal movements. They stress the fact that assessment at preschool age is difficult because of the time needed to achieve the child’s cooperation.

This study aimed to determine whether neonatal feeding performance can predict the neurodevelopmental outcome of infants at 18 months of age. We measured the expression and sucking pressures of 65 infants 32 males and 33 females, mean gestational age By sharing a same methodology and a similar scoring system, the use of these three assessments prevents any rupture in the course of high risk children follow-up from 32 weeks post-conception to 6 years of age.

The ATNAT which takes 5 minutes to administer may be used in clinical setting as well as in research. The aims of this study were: Participants were 52 term, newborn infants 31 males, 21 females with risk factors for brain damage.

Mean birthweight was g SD g and mean gestational age was The eligibility criteria currently used for neurodevelopmental follow-up are traditionally based on perinatal events and characteristics of the infants at birth.

However, they seem unsatisfactory to target efficiently all children who will manifest long-term neurologic sequelae and eventually require rehabilitation services.

To assess the predictive value of normal, abnormal, or absent general movements in high-risk preterm infants for the later neurological development. The study involved high-risk preterm infants gestational age, Read More. Amiel-Tison neurologic assessment neurologiccal term has recently been updated for clinical application. Experience in this field, in addition to a better understanding of pathophysiologic characteristics of the immature brain, has neurologcial us that an increased precision in assessing central nervous system function in the neonate is compatible with a simplification of the clinical instrument.

The complete procedure takes approximately 5 minutes. The jeurological of this study was to establish correlations between minor neurological findings and developmental performance.

A cohort of 72 preschool children was studied 38 females, 34 males; mean age 3 years 8 months, SD aamiel-tison year 2 months, range 2 assesment 5 years who were considered to be at high risk due to placental insufficiency. The cohort was divided into four categories of neurological status: Neurodevelopmental and behavioural problems have been repeatedly reported in very preterm survivors, often showing themselves later in childhood as poor school performance.

Early identification of problems would mean that appropriate remedial therapy can be implemented. We have previously shown that neurodevelopmental status at 1 year was predictive of outcome at 8 years in a cohort of preterm infants.

Experimental studies on fetal lambs have shown that during an increase in the resistance to placental flow the delivery of oxygen to the brain is preserved as long as net flow through the aortic isthmus is antegrade. Our purpose was to determine whether the same amiel-fison in aortic isthmus flow in human subjects have any impact on neurodevelopmental outcome.

Forty-four fetuses were retrospectively included in this study on the basis of an abnormal Doppler velocity in the umbilical artery. This study investigated the accuracy of prediction of neurodevelopmental outcome at 1 year using amiel-tsion proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy MRS and structured neonatal neurological assessment in term infants after presumed hypoxic-ischaemic brain injury.

Eighteen control infants and 28 infants with presumed hypoxic-ischaemic brain injury underwent proton MRS investigation. Studies were carried out as soon as possible after the cerebral insult, most within 48 hours. Clinical assessment is often neglected in neonatal intensive care units due to technical difficulties.

When a child is in a more stable situation and when maturation progresses with postnatal weeks, neurologic assessment becomes more and more neuroological, as it is related to the upper hemispheric functions.

Several aspects are discussed here: The myocardium, while selected as a preferred organ for perfusion in the asphyxiated fetus or newborn, nevertheless may suffer damage. The objectives of this study were:
