What is Trip?

Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care.

Trip has been online since 1997 and in that time has developed into the internet’s premier source of evidence-based content. Our motto is ‘Find evidence fast’ and this is something we aim to deliver for every single search.

As well as research evidence we also allow clinicians to search across other content types including images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses and news.

83. Evaluating the effect of intensive intervention in children with cerebral palsy using a hypothetical matched control group: a preliminary study. (Abstract)

Evaluating the effect of intensive intervention in children with cerebral palsy using a hypothetical matched control group: a preliminary study. To evaluate the effect of intensive intervention in children with cerebral palsy using a hypothetical matched control group based on motor growth curves.For pretest-posttest design using a hypothetical control group, a convenient sample of 39 children with cerebral palsy who received intensive intervention without surgical treatment was assigned (...) , using a hypothetical control group, the effectiveness of intensive intervention in children with cerebral palsy has been demonstrated. Although it is desirable to have a baseline phase to make sure whether gross motor function in the hypothetical control group changes in a similar way to that in the experimental group before an intervention phase, the hypothetical control group design is well worth considering as a research design option in the field of cerebral palsy research.

86. Magnesium Sulphate to Prevent Cerebral Palsy following Preterm Birth

asa neuroprotective agent is unknown, it hasa number of biologically plausible actions which may contribute to a protective effect on the preterm neonatal brain. The most common pathological lesion associated with cerebral palsy in preterm infants is periventri- cular white matter injury. 5 Oligodendrocytes constitutea major glial population in the white matter. N-methyl-D-aspartic acid (NMDA) receptors on oligodendrocytes are thought to be important in the glial injury process. NMDA receptor (...)
