dc.description.abstractBackground: Cerebral Palsy (CP) affects 0.2% of live births worldwide. Its resultant motor spasticity contributes to reduced upper limb function and a significantly reduced quality of life. Intramuscular injection of Botulinum Toxin A (BoNT-A) for upper limb CP is gaining popularity. However, its use for paediatric patients remains off-license and off-label. The administering surgeon therefore requires an up to date, evidence-based rationale to justify its use in an NHS setting, and advise on best-practice.en_GB
