[Pediatric neurofunctional intervention in agenesis of the corpus callosum: a case report].

Pacheco SC, Queiroz AP, Niza NT, da Costa LM, Ries LG - Rev Paul Pediatr (2014)

Bottom Line: Functional performance tests were used such as the neurofunctional evaluation, the Gross Motor Function Measure and the Gross Motor Function Classification System.The intervention also showed improvement in functional performance.The approach based on function with activities that involve muscle strengthening and balance training reactions, influenced the acquisition of a more selective motor behavior.

Post-intervention results: (A) While sitting on the low stool, the patientmaintained trunk control performing unior bimanual object handling; (B) Patientcan transfer from the sitting to the kneeling position using a low stool support;(C) Patient remains on all fours and performs decoupling of limbs; (D) In thestanding position, patient walks with the therapist’s support

Mentions: In relation to motor behavior, movement acquisition was achieved and postural permanencetime improved. The following were achieved: a) in the prone position: full support ofupper limbs on hands, and ability to reach out; b) sitting: improved backward balance,allowing the patient to sit on a bench and on his side, handling objects; c) on allfours: the patient remained with extended elbows and crawled with the lower limbs; d)kneeling: actively sustained trunk with pelvic girdle support or support of a low stool;e) semikneeling: actively remained in the position for a short time; f) in the standingposition: gait was started with support from the therapist's hands or pelvic girdle.After training, postural transfers from supine to sitting, from sitting to kneeling(actively assisted), from kneeling to semi-kneeling (actively assisted), and fromkneeling to standing with support of a low stool were achieved (Fig. 2).
