  1. Impact of improved survival of very low birth weight infants on recent secular trends in the prevalence of cerebral palsy.

    Article - En anglais


    To review recent secular trends in the prevalence of cerebral palsy in industrialized countries that have population-based cerebral palsy registries and to estimate such time-trends for the United States, where until recently such registries were absent.

    Data sources

    Recent epidemiologic studies of cerebral palsy published in peer-reviewed journals in English, and US vital data bearing on the principal demographic determinants of cerebral palsy-birth rates, the birth weight distributions, birth weight-specific mortality risk, and cerebral palsy risk among survivors.


    Most epidemiologic studies from industrialized countries show a rise in the childhood prevalence of cerebral palsy in recent decades, largely because of the increasing contribution of children of low and very low birth weight to its prevalence.
