Prognosis of Neonatal Cerebral Arterial Infarction

Reading time: 1 min

The main motor sequela of perinatal ischaemic arterial infarction is contralateral hemiplegia on the side of the infarction, with greater involvement of the upper limb (especially the hand), compared to the lower one. This is the most obvious sequela, but it is not known if it is the most frequent or the one with the greatest impact on families, children and society.

Although what is seen are motor deficits, it is estimated that 20-60% of patients (varying according to the different studies) have other alterations: in vision, visuo-spatial integration, visual memory, language, comprehension, low tolerance, frustration, tendency to isolate, language difficulties, epilepsy and emotional and behavioural disorders.
