Parachute and lateral propping reaction in preterm children

Abstract

Com o objetivo de traçar um perfil clinico-epidemiológico e estabelecer marcos do desenvolvimento neurológico de recém-nascidos prematuros aos 3, 6, 9 e 12 meses de idade corrigida, quanto às reações do paraquedismo e do apoio lateral, foi realizado estudo de coorte não controlado, com enfoque prognóstico. Foram incluídos no estudo recém-nascidos com idade gestacional até 36 semanas e 6 dias, com 2000g ou menos de peso ao nascimento. As reações do paraquedismo e apoio lateral estavam presentes em 8,1% aos 6 meses, em 87,5% e 90% respectivamente aos 9 meses. Foi possível avaliar as reações posturais do paraquedismo e do apoio lateral em crianças prematuras no periodo de um ano. Alterações na coordenação tronco-membros pode ser evidenciada no 1o ano de vida através de reações posturais, que são mantidas como marcadores de prematuridade até a idade escolar.A non-controlled, prognostic cohort study was performed with the aim of establishing markers of neurological development and defining a clinical and epidemiological profile of preterm newborns at 3, 6, 9, and 12 months of gestation-corrected age in terms of parachute and lateral propping reactions. Newborns with gestational age of up to 36 weeks and 6 days, weighing 2,000 g or less at birth, were included in the study At 6 months of age, parachute and lateral propping reactions were present in 8.1% of the patients. At 9 months, the parachute reaction was present in 87.5%, and the lateral propping reaction was present in 90% of the children. It was possible to assess parachute and lateral propping reactions in preterm children in the first year of life. Alterations in trunk-limb coordination may be evidenced in the 1st year of life through postural reactions, which are maintained as prematurity markers until school age
