Summary:This book aims to give an objective and up-to-date evaluation of the known relationships between perinatal events occuring during pregnancy, labor and the neonatal period on the one hand, and the occurrence of brain damage in surviving children on the other. The various aspects of the subject are covered in sections on pathophysiology, epidemiology, effect of chronic intrauterine deprivation and chronic hypoxia, effect of intrapartum acute hypoxia and trauma, prematurity and the problems of neonatal intensive care. This review offers the most comprehensive and current assessment available of the connections between perinatal events and later brain damage with special consideration given to the information derived during the perinatal period by modern diagnostic procedures. The book will help clarify uncertainties regarding the etiology of brain damage, especially cerebral palsy, and will be of great value to the practicing obstetrician and neonatologist in his daily decision-making
