Diagnosis and management of SMA

The International Standard of Care Committee for Spinal Muscular Atrophy was formed in 2005, with a goal of establishing practice guidelines for clinical care of these patients. Consensus was achieved in 2007 on several topics related to common medical problems in spinal muscular atrophy, diagnostic strategies, recommendations for assessment and monitoring, and therapeutic interventions in each care area. TheĀ Consensus Statement for Standard of Care in Spinal Muscular Atrophy and a user friendly version are both available to download from the TREAT-NMD website.
