Time to Consider Modified Motor Optimality Score in Specialized Cohorts.

      We read with great interest the article, “Early spontaneous movements and upper extremity movement score in infants with all Narakas Types of Obstetric Brachial Plexus Palsy” by Yardımcı-Lokmanoğlu et al.

      Early spontaneous movements and upper extremity movement score in infants with all Narakas Types of Obstetric Brachial Plexus Palsy.
      The authors have assessed fidgety movements and motor repertoire using Prechtl general movements assessment (GMA), a motor optimality score (MOS) and affected upper extremity movements using active movement scale (AMS) in infants with obstetric brachial plexus palsy (OBPP). It would be interesting to know the neurocognitive outcome of these children with OBPP based on follow-up assessment with gold standard developmental and motor assessment scales.
