Imputabilité de l'asphyxie fœtale aigue per-partum dans la paralysie cérébrale infantile

Abstract : Objective: In children with cerebral palsy (CP), acute birth-related fetal asphyxia (ABFA) is frequently implicated when parturation has been complicated. The objective of this work is to assess ABFA accountability in the occurrence of CP by applying obstetrical-pediatric criteria elaborated by ACOG-AAP in 2003. Methods: Descriptive study of 197 children with CP registered in RHEOP and borned in Isère, Savoie and Haute-Savoie from 2000 to 2007 at 34 amenorrhea weeks and more. ABFA is the selected etiology when there is a severe neonatal hypoxia (4 validated essential criteria) occured during birth-related period (at less 3 non specific validated criteria). Results: In total, a diagnosis of AFAPP has been made for one case (0,5%, IC à 95% from 0,09% to 2,9%). Cerebral palsy was due to antenatal etiology in two-thirds of cases, and to a post-natal event in the remaining one-third. Conclusion: It can be confirmed that the prevalence of AFAPP in the genesis of CP is very low (<3%), thus confirming previous results from RHEOP and others population registries. This rarity underscores the importance of extending etiological research from a PC to areas that are still under-explored, all other causes being the majority.
