RESULTS

Found (18) clinical trials

The CHAMP Study—a multisite clinical trial funded by the National Institutes of Health—compares the efficacy of alternative therapies for young children with unilateral spastic cerebral palsy, also known as hemiparetic cerebral palsy. Children who meet study eligibility criteria will participate at one of the three clinical sites— Roanoke, Virginia; Charlottesville, ...

Phase

The Baby Champ Study, a clinical trial funded by the National Institutes of Health, compares three highly promising forms of therapy for infants and toddlers who have a diagnosis of hemiparetic cerebral palsy. Children who meet study eligibility criteria will participate at one of the two clinical sites: Roanoke, Virginia, ...

Phase

Clinical Orthopaedic Data Bank (Acute and Chronic)

All patients seen the Orthopaedic clinic will be informed of the data collection and asked to participate. If the patient is agreeable to participation, informed consent will then be obtained.

Early Movements as a Predictor of Future Developmental Delay

Cerebral Palsy (CP) is a motor development problem with a prevalence of 2 per 1000 live birth. There are many etiologies to the syndrome such as: brain malformations, infections during pregnancy, pre and perinatal, anoxic brain damage etc. A high risk group for these causes is preterm infants and infants ...

Phase

Physiological Brain Atlas Development

Purpose: To create a brain atlas that will allow physiological and clinical information to be assigned to anatomical locations in MRI space, utilizing non-rigid MRI normalization algorithms. These data will specifically be acquired from the population of patients undergoing stereotactic brain procedures. 2. To collate and analyze the brain data ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of an Advanced Lower Extremity Neuroprostheses

Protocol Outline: Patents undergo surgery in which electrodes are implanted into muscles of the trunk and legs. Electrode leads are connected to an stimulator/telemeter. Following implantation, patients undergo training in standing, transfers and other advanced mobility skills using the functional electrical stimulation system. A prescribed course of exercise, functional training ...

Quadriceps Muscle Plasticity in Children With Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy (CP) is the most common physical disability originating in childhood, occurring in 2-3 per 1,000 live births. Although the primary deficit in CP is injury to the brain, secondary impairments affecting muscle function such as weakness, contractures, and spasticity are often far more debilitating and lead to worsening ...

Phase

Prospective Study of Scoliosis in Children With Cerebral Palsy

Bracing severe neuromuscular scoliotic curves rarely serves as definitive treatment, thus most progressive curves require surgical intervention in order to sustain or improve sitting (or ambulatory) abilities. Surgery is a demanding intervention for these patients, with variable functional gains. Controversy persists regarding indications for surgery, timing, and technique. Concerns about ...

Does Oral Baclofen Improve Care and Comfort in Spastic Children in Nursing Homes?

Baclofen is a drug that reduces the muscle stiffness. In disabled children that have very stiff muscles, the stiffness and secondary changes in the joints may cause discomfort and pain. In this study we will check if treatment with Baclofen reduces pain in disabled children with stiff muscles.

Phase

Treatment of Drooling With Type A Botulinum Toxin in Children With Cerebral Palsy

Sialorrhea, or drooling, has been reported to be a significant problem in 10%to 37% of patients with cerebral palsy. Excessive drooling may cause skin maceration, increased the burden of caregiver, affect articulation of the patients, and increase the risk of aspiration and dehydration. Many options, including various therapies, medications, surgeries ...
