What is Trip?

Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care.

Trip has been online since 1997 and in that time has developed into the internet’s premier source of evidence-based content. Our motto is ‘Find evidence fast’ and this is something we aim to deliver for every single search.

As well as research evidence we also allow clinicians to search across other content types including images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses and news.

The review was limited by a relatively small number of studies. The possibility of studies being missed from the review means that the results should be interpreted with caution. Authors' objectives To examine whether muscle strengthening interventions can increase strength (with or without increasing spasticity) and/or improve activity in children and adolescents with cerebral palsy and whether benefits are maintained beyond the length

Two-year placebo-controlled trial of botulinum toxin A for leg spasticity in cerebral palsy The controlled evidence favoring botulinum toxin A (BtA) treatment for spasticity in cerebral palsy is based on short-term studies.We conducted a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group study of BtA (Dysport) for leg spasticity in 64 children with cerebral palsy. For 2 years, the children received trial injections of up to 30 mu/kg every 3 months if clinically indicated.For

110. Intrauterine growth and survival in cerebral palsy (Abstract)

Intrauterine growth and survival in cerebral palsy Deviations in birth weight from an optimum, thought to be just above average for gestational age, are known to increase both the risk of developing cerebral palsy and the risk of developing cerebral palsy of a more severe form. Influences on survival of such deviations from average birth weight for gestational age are not known.Using a well-established, well-defined and large UK cohort of children and adults with cerebral palsy, followed from (...) % (95% CI 70% to 88%) of the average.Infants with a birth weight lighter than average for gestational age have an increased likelihood of developing a more severe form of cerebral palsy. Surprisingly, among the infants who are very severely impaired, those born much lighter than average for gestational age have the longest life expectancy, and those born much heavier than average for gestational age have the shortest life expectancy.

111. Does botulinum toxin a combined with bracing prevent hip displacement in children with cerebral palsy and ``hips at risk``? A randomized, controlled trial Full Text available with Trip Pro

Does botulinum toxin a combined with bracing prevent hip displacement in children with cerebral palsy and ``hips at risk``? A randomized, controlled trial Cerebral palsy is the most common cause of childhood physical disability in developed countries, affecting two children per 1000 live births. Hip displacement affects about one-third of children with cerebral palsy and may result in pain, deformity, and impaired function. The prevention of hip displacement has not been studied in a randomized (...) trial as far as we know.A randomized, controlled trial was conducted to examine the effect of intramuscular injections of botulinum toxin A combined with use of a variable hip abduction brace on the progression of hip displacement in children with cerebral palsy. The patients in the treatment group received injections of botulinum toxin A to the adductor and hamstring muscles every six months for three years and were prescribed a hip abduction brace to be worn for six hours per day.

113. A randomized, controlled trial of magnesium sulfate for the prevention of cerebral palsy. Full Text available with Trip Pro

A randomized, controlled trial of magnesium sulfate for the prevention of cerebral palsy. Research suggests that fetal exposure to magnesium sulfate before preterm birth might reduce the risk of cerebral palsy.In this multicenter, placebo-controlled, double-blind trial, we randomly assigned women at imminent risk for delivery between 24 and 31 weeks of gestation to receive magnesium sulfate, administered intravenously as a 6-g bolus followed by a constant infusion of 2 g per hour, or matching (...) placebo. The primary outcome was the composite of stillbirth or infant death by 1 year of corrected age or moderate or severe cerebral palsy at or beyond 2 years of corrected age.A total of 2241 women underwent randomization. The baseline characteristics were similar in the two groups. Follow-up was achieved for 95.6% of the children. The rate of the primary outcome was not significantly different in the magnesium sulfate group and the placebo group (11.3% and 11.7%, respectively; relative risk, 0.97

Effect of seat surface inclination on postural control during reaching in preterm children with cerebral palsy. BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Because it is debatable whether seat surface inclination improves motor function in children with cerebral palsy (CP), the effect of seat surface tilting on postural control and quality of reaching was studied. SUBJECTS: The subjects were 58 children with CP aged 2 to 11 years (34 with unilateral spastic CP, 24 with bilateral spastic CP). METHODS: During

118. Self-reported quality of life of 8-12-year-old children with cerebral palsy: a cross-sectional European study. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Self-reported quality of life of 8-12-year-old children with cerebral palsy: a cross-sectional European study. Little is known about the quality of life (QoL) of disabled children. We describe self-reported QoL of children with cerebral palsy, factors that influence it, and how it compares with QoL of the general population.1174 children aged 8-12 years were randomly selected from eight population-based registers of children with cerebral palsy in six European countries and 743 (63%) agreed (...) to 3% and 7%, respectively, of variation in QoL. Children with cerebral palsy had similar QoL to children in the general population in all domains except schooling, in which evidence was equivocal, and physical wellbeing, in which comparison was not possible.Parents can be reassured that most children aged 8-12 years with cerebral palsy will have similar QoL to other children. This finding should guide social and educational policy to ensure that disabled children participate fully in society
