[Prevention of cerebral palcy during pregnancy and delivery].

[Article in Bulgarian]


Cerebral palsy is a disease causing significant medical, emotional, financial and social difficulties for the patient and his family, medical staff and society. In this review we tried to figure out the possibilities for prevention of cerebral palsy during pregnancy and delivery. It have been discussed the strict followup of pregnancy, early prenatal diagnosis and termination of pregnancy with congenital anomalies of the fetus, detection and treatment of intrauterine infections, management in multiple pregnancies, prevention of prematurity. Use of antenatal magnesium also plays a role in the prevention of cerebral palsy. In this review are discussed fetal asphyxia and the role of caesarean section. We present briefly the modem terminology and clinical picture of various types and forms of cerebral palsy, and organization in the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of children with specific impairment in the development of motor function and cerebral palsy.
