Cerebral palsy: evaluation of a model of risk.
The purpose of this study was to assess a model of risk for cerebral palsy (CP) in preschool children.
The research was structured as a retrospective case-control study in which cases (n = 112) were children with CP while controls (n = 153) were either friend referrals or population-based.
Data were collected via structured telephone interviews.
While significant associations with CP were found on univariate analyses for a number of variables, only four variables-birth weight/gestational age, 5-min APGAR, medication for miscarriage, and urinary tract infection during pregnancy-were found predictive in multivariate analysis.
These variables accounted for 36% of the log-likelihood explained by the model.
