SPASTIC HEMIPLEGIA - CEREBRAL PALSY

Spastic hemiplegia is a type of spastic cerebral palsy that is associated with the loss of use, loss of control of one's limbs on only one side of the bodyPersons with spastic hemiplegia (hemiparesis) also may experience hemiparetic tremors - uncontrollable shaking of the limbs on one side of the body. Severe hemiparetic tremors can seriously impair movement. The arm  of a hemiplegic patient is generally affected more than the leg. Learning disabilities, vision problems, seizures, and dysfunction of the muscles of the mouth and tongue are classic symptoms of hemiparesis. 

It has been observed that some patients with spastic hemiplegia, may have limbs on the affected side of the body that may not grow as quickly or as large as those on the more normal side. This spastic hemiplegia usually affects the foot most severely. Since the involved foot in hemiplegia is often smaller than the unaffected foot even among patients who walk, this size difference is probablnot due in part to lack of use.  Similarly, infants with spastic hemiplegia, may develop a preference much earlier, since the hand on the unaffected side of their body is stronger and more useful, furthering the non use of the affected limb. Treatments of spastic hemiplegia include botox injections, spinal cord stimulation and medical procedures to reduce the spastity of the hemiplegic CP patient.

Question: What are the most common causes of cerebral palsy?

Answer: During the birth, many times the child’s ability to obtain needed oxygen is a chief cause of cerebral palsy.  It may result from premature separation of the placenta, too large of baby for the birth canal or pelvis, too long or too abrupt of labor, awkward and/or breech deliveries, cord entanglement,  excessive Pitocin, shoulder dystocia, failure to order timely cesarean (c-section), placenta abruptus, excessive force or use of vacuum or forceps, and ruptured uterus. In additional cerebral palsy may occur when there is presence of birth asphyxia, a vaginal birth after a caesarean delivery  (VBAC) with a ruptured uterus, neonatal depression, static encephalopathy, fetal bleeding, periventricular leukomalacia, fetal distress during labor, an abrupted placenta and/or  hypoxic ischemic  encephalopathy,

Answer:  Early signs of cerebral palsy may include but limited to low apgar scores, child born with low ph or acidosis,  a child born with a bluish skin tone, seizure immediately after birth, cerebral edema, difficulty breathing on its own and a child born severely bruised at birth.
