- Causal Mechanisms Underlying Periventricular Leukomalacia and Cerebral Palsy. Kadhim, Hazim; S�bire, Guillaume; Kahn, Andr�; Evrard, Philippe; Dan, Bernard // Current Pediatric Reviews;2005, Vol. 1 Issue 1, p1
Periventricular leukomalacia is a major neuropathological substrate underlying most of the neurologic morbidity in cerebral palsy. Etiopathogenesis of periventricular leukomalacia is believed to be multifactorial, involving hypoxic-ischemic insults and inflammatory processes. While emphasis was...
- Development of a Novel Orofacial Motor Function Assessment Scale for Children With Cerebral Palsy. Botti Rodrigues Santos, Maria Teresa; Scalco Manzano, Felipe; Duarte Ferreira, Maria Cristina; Masiero, Danilo // Journal of Dentistry for Children;Sep-Dec2005, Vol. 72 Issue 3, p113
