New publication: congenital anomalies in children with cerebral palsy

The manuscript reports the results from a multi-centre total population collaborative study between Surveillance of Cerebral Palsy in Europe (SCPE), Australian Cerebral Palsy Register, and European Surveillance of Congenital Anomalies (EUROCAT) that involved six European and three Australian regions. The aim of the study was to describe the frequency and types of major congenital anomalies present in children with pre- or perinatally acquired cerebral palsy (CP), and compare clinical outcomes for children with and without anomalies.
