      Prominent publications by Gitendra Uswatte

      KOL-Index: 14577

      CONTEXT: Single-site studies suggest that a 2-week program of constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT) for patients more than 1 year after stroke who maintain some hand and wrist movement can improve upper extremity function that persists for at least 1 year.

      OBJECTIVE: To compare the effects of a 2-week multisite program of CIMT vs usual and customary care on improvement in upper extremity function among patients who had a first stroke within the previous 3 to 9 months.

      BACKGROUND: Constraint-Induced Movement therapy (CI therapy) is shown to reduce disability, increase use of the more affected arm/hand, and promote brain plasticity for individuals with upper extremity hemiparesis post-stroke. Randomized controlled trials consistently demonstrate that CI therapy is superior to other rehabilitation paradigms, yet it is available to only a small minority of the estimated 1.2 million chronic stroke survivors with upper extremity disability. The current ...

      In this laboratory we have developed a set of techniques that randomized controlled studies and a multisite randomized controlled trial have shown can substantially reduce the motor deficit of adult patients with mild to severe chronic strokes. Equivalent results have been obtained with adult patients after traumatic brain injury and brain resection. The basic technique, termed Constraint-Induced Movement therapy or CI therapy was derived directly from basic research with monkeys with ...

      BACKGROUND: The aim of constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT) is to promote use of a limb that is functionally impaired after a stroke. In one form of CIMT to treat upper limb impairment, use of the less severely affected arm is restricted for many hours each weekday over 2 consecutive weeks. The EXCITE trial has previously shown the efficacy of this intervention for patients 3-9 months poststroke who were followed-up for the next 12 months. We assessed the retention of improvements ...

      There are few studies examining the relationship between psychopathology and positive experiences and traits. Although initial studies suggest persons with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are at increased risk for excessive social anxiety, there have been no studies to date evaluating how these conditions might interact to affect positive experiences and traits. Using self-report scales, informant ratings, and experience-sampling methodologies, we examined the association of social ...

      To date, single voxel spectroscopy (SVS) is the most commonly used MRS technique. SVS is relatively easy to use and provides automated and immediate access to the resulting spectra. However, it is also limited in spatial coverage. A new and very promising MRS technique allows for whole-brain MR spectroscopic imaging (WB-MRSI) with much improved spatial resolution. Establishing the reproducibility of data obtained using SVS and WB-MRSI is an important first step for using these techniques ...

      OBJECTIVE: To investigate the relationship of white matter integrity and path of the corticospinal tract (CST) on arm function before and after constraint-induced (CI) movement therapy in children with hemiparetic cerebral palsy (CP) and adults with chronic stroke.

      DESIGN: Study 1 used a multiple-baseline pre-post design. Study 2 was a randomized controlled trial.

      SETTING: Outpatient rehabilitation laboratory.

      PARTICIPANTS: Study 1 included children with hemiparetic CP (n=10; mean age ± ...

      BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: In research on Constraint-Induced Movement (CI) therapy, a structured interview, the Motor Activity Log (MAL), is used to assess how stroke survivors use their more-impaired arm outside the laboratory. This article examines the psychometrics of the 14-item version of this instrument in 2 chronic stroke samples with mild-to-moderate upper-extremity hemiparesis.

      METHODS: Participants (n=41) in the first study completed MALs before and after CI therapy or a placebo ...

      OBJECTIVE: To examine the psychometric properties of an objective method for assessing real-world arm activity in a large sample with subacute stroke.

      DESIGN: Validation study.

      SETTING: Community.

      PARTICIPANTS: Persons 3 to 9 months poststroke (N=169) with mild to moderate motor impairment of their hemiparetic arm enrolled in a multisite, randomized clinical trial of constraint-induced movement therapy.

      INTERVENTIONS: Not applicable.

      MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Participants wore an ...

      OBJECTIVE: To examine the reliability of the Wolf Motor Function Test (WMFT) for assessing upper extremity motor function in adults with hemiplegia.

      DESIGN: Interrater and test-retest reliability.

      SETTING: A clinical research laboratory at a university medical center.

      PATIENTS: A sample of convenience of 24 subjects with chronic hemiplegia (onset >1yr), showing moderate motor impairment.

      INTERVENTION: The WMFT includes 15 functional tasks. Performances were timed and rated by using a ...

      Research from the present laboratory with adult stroke patients showed that structural neuroplastic changes are correlated with clinical improvements due to constraint-induced movement (CI) therapy. This pilot study evaluated whether comparable changes occur in children receiving CI therapy. Ten children (6 boys) with congenital hemiparesis (mean age: 3 years, 3 months) underwent MRI scans 3 weeks before, immediately before, and immediately after receiving 3 weeks of CI therapy. ...

      OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the reliability and validity of accelerometry for measuring upper-extremity rehabilitation outcome.

      DESIGN: Validation study.

      SETTING: Data recorded in the community.

      PARTICIPANTS: Consecutive Constraint-Induced Movement therapy (CIMT) patients (n = 10) and volunteer community residents with stroke (n = 10). All participants were more than 1 year poststroke and had mild to moderate motor impairment of the more affected arm.

      BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Constraint-Induced Movement therapy (CI therapy) is a neurorehabilitation technique developed to improve use of the more affected upper extremity after stroke. A number of studies have reported positive effects for this intervention, but an experiment with a credible placebo control group has not yet been published.

      METHODS: We conducted a placebo-controlled trial of CI therapy in patients with mild to moderate chronic (mean=4.5 years after stroke) motor deficit ...

      KOL-Index: 8399

      BACKGROUND: Data from monkeys with deafferented forelimbs and humans after stroke indicate that tests of the motor capacity of impaired extremities can overestimate their spontaneous use. Before the Motor Activity Log (MAL) was developed, no instruments assessed spontaneous use of a hemiparetic arm outside the treatment setting.

      OBJECTIVE: To study the MAL's reliability and validity for assessing real-world quality of movement (QOM scale) and amount of use (AOU scale) of the hemiparetic ...
