Abstract

Cerebral palsy is a disease that puts a great mental burden on caregivers and generates very high social costs. Children with CP require many years of rehabilitation and medical care. The etiology of the disease is undoubtedly multifactorial, and the pathogenesis is associated with focal damage to the central nervous system. One can find descriptions of well-documented interventions in the literature that reduce the risk of CP in certain groups of pregnant and neonatal patients, and interventions that have a potentially protective effect. In this review, we have analyzed the available literature in terms of prenatal and postnatal interventions that may have an impact on reducing the incidence of this condition in children.
