Nakora You will receive an email neurolofical this article is corrected, updated, or cited in the literature. Experience in this nwurological, in addition to a better understanding of pathophysiologic characteristics of the immature brain, has taught us that an increased precision in assessing central nervous system function in the neonate is compatible with a simplification of the clinical instrument. For each item, a dichotomous score was recorded normal: Amiel-Tison neurologic assessment at term has recently been updated for clinical application. Neurological assessment was performed as described by Amiel-Tison by a neonatologist, who examined all preterm infants upon enrolment in the study and during the week preceding discharge.

Dev Med Child Neurol. Amiel-Tison Neurological Assessment at term age: clinical application, correlation with other methods, and outcome at 12 to 15 months. The aims of this study were: 1 to perform the Amiel-Tison Neurological Assessment ATNA in a group of infants with different risk factors for brain damage; 2 to analyze the results of the examinations in light of the risk factors and presumed aetiology; 3 to compare results of examinations with results of cranial ultrasound, electroencephalography EEG , and cerebral function monitoring CFM ; and 4 to evaluate neurological outcome at 12 to 15 months of age using the Amiel-Tison and Gosselin method, and developmental outcome using the Bayley Scales of Infant Development.

Participants were 52 term, newborn infants 31 males, 21 females with risk factors for brain damage. Mean birthweight was g SD g and mean gestational age was Mean age at admission to a neonatal special care unit was 75h, SD The group with a dynamic evolving clinical profile differed significantly from the group with a static stable profile in terms of aetiology, while the group with signs of prenatal brain damage differed from the group without these signs regarding aetiology and the level of severity of neurological signs.

Sensitivity of the ATNA to detect infants with abnormal ultrasound was 0. At follow-up at 12 to 15 months 47 children were examined: neurological examination was normal in 25 and five children had a minor, five a moderate, and 12 a severe neurological deficit. Agreement of the ATNA with neurological and developmental assessment at follow-up was very good. Our findings suggest that the ATNA is also of value in assessing aetiology and timing of brain lesions.

Daizuru Alterations of the fetal motor function identified by 3D-4D US may provide the missing link in these cases. The signs depending on brainstem function, such as primitive reflexes and passive tone in limb flexor muscles have been de-emphasized at the neonatal period as they do not provide information about the cerebral hemispheres and basal ganglia. Despite our modest recent contribution to the domain of prediction, further studies on welldefined high risk populations with rigorous methodology that aim amiel-ttison demonstrate these links are still needed. The Amiel-Tison Assessment at Term: Predictive value at both extremes of the spectrum is good: Pediatrics Oct; 4: Passive tone is examined by evaluating the amplitude of slow passive movements i.
