      KOL-Index: 14701

      IMPORTANCE: Clinical trials suggest that higher doses of task-oriented training are superior to current clinical practice for patients with stroke with upper extremity motor deficits.

      OBJECTIVE: To compare the efficacy of a structured, task-oriented motor training program vs usual and customary occupational therapy (UCC) during stroke rehabilitation.

      DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: Phase 3, pragmatic, single-blind randomized trial among 361 participants with moderate motor impairment ...

      We studied how acute hemiparesis affects the ability to perform purposeful movements of proximal versus distal upper extremity segments. Given the gradient of corticospinal input to the spinal motoneuron pools, we postulated that movement performance requiring distal segment control (grasping) should be more impaired than movement performance requiring proximal segment control (reaching) in people with hemiparesis. We tested subjects with acute hemiparesis and control subjects performing ...

      BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: We sought to determine predictors of acute hospital costs in patients presenting with acute ischemic stroke to an academic center using a stroke management team to coordinate care.

      METHODS: Demographic and clinical data were prospectively collected on 191 patients consecutively admitted with acute ischemic stroke. Patients were classified by insurance status, premorbid modified Rankin scale, stroke location, stroke severity (National Institutes of Health Stroke ...

      Hemiparetic subjects present with movement deficits including weakness, spasticity and an inability to isolate movement to one or a few joints. Voluntary attempts to move a single joint often result in excessive motion at adjacent joints. We investigated whether the inability to individuate joint movements is associated with deficits in functional reaching. Controls and hemiparetic subjects performed two different reaching movements and three individuated arm movements, all in the ...

      KOL-Index: 10601

      BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The authors recently found that grasping was not relatively more disrupted than reaching in people with acute hemiparesis. They now extend this work to the recovery of reach versus grasp.

      METHODS: Hemiparetic subjects were tested acutely, after 90 days, and then after 1 year poststroke, and a control group was evaluated once. Using kinematic techniques, subjects were studied performing reach and reach-to-grasp movements. The authors quantified 3 characteristics ...

      OBJECTIVE: To determine neural correlates of recovery from aphasia after left frontal injury.

      METHODS: The authors studied the verbal performance of patients with infarcts centered in the left inferior frontal gyrus (IFG), using a battery of attention-demanding lexical tasks that normally activate the left IFG and a simpler reading task that does not normally recruit the left IFG. The authors used positron emission tomography (PET) and functional MRI (fMRI) to record neural activity in ...

      OBJECTIVE: To examine the responsiveness and validity of the Action Research Arm Test (ARAT) in a population of subjects with mild-to-moderate hemiparesis within the first few months after stroke.

      DESIGN: Data were collected as part of the Very Early Constraint-Induced Therapy for Recovery from Stroke trial, an acute, single-blind randomized controlled trial of constraint-induced movement therapy. Subjects were studied at baseline (day 0), after treatment (day 14), and after 90 days (day ...

      The purposes of this report were to: 1) determine the amount of upper extremity use in people with hemiparesis post stroke during their inpatient rehabilitation stay, and 2) to examine the relationships between upper extremity use and impairments and activity limitations at this early time point after stroke. We studied 34 subjects with mild-to-moderate acute hemiparesis (mean time since stroke = 9.3 days) and 10 healthy control subjects. Upper extremity use was measured over 24 hours ...

      OBJECTIVE: To estimate minimal clinically important difference (MCID) values of several upper-extremity measures early after stroke.

      DESIGN: Data in this report were collected during the Very Early Constraint-induced Therapy for Recovery of Stroke trial, an acute, single-blind randomized controlled trial of constraint-induced movement therapy. Subjects were tested at the prerandomization baseline assessment (average days poststroke, 9.5d) and the first posttreatment assessment (average ...

      BACKGROUND: Constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT) is among the most developed training approaches for motor restoration of the upper extremity (UE).

      METHODS: Very Early Constraint-Induced Movement during Stroke Rehabilitation (VECTORS) was a single-blind phase II trial of CIMT during acute inpatient rehabilitation comparing traditional UE therapy with dose-matched and high-intensity CIMT protocols. Participants were adaptively randomized on rehabilitation admission, and received 2 ...

      BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Little is known about the relationship between upper-extremity (UE) sensorimotor impairment and reaching performance during the first few months after stroke. The purpose of this study was to examine: (1) how measures of UE sensorimotor impairment are related to the speed, accuracy, and efficiency of reaching in subjects with hemiparesis during the subacute phase after stroke and (2) how impairments measured during the acute phase after stroke may predict the ...

      BACKGROUND: Residual disability after stroke is substantial; 65% of patients at 6 months are unable to incorporate the impaired upper extremity into daily activities. Task-oriented training programs are rapidly being adopted into clinical practice. In the absence of any consensus on the essential elements or dose of task-specific training, an urgent need exists for a well-designed trial to determine the effectiveness of a specific multidimensional task-based program governed by a ...

      In recovered stroke patients, performance of motor tasks with the affected limb has been reported to activate cortical areas ipsilateral to the affected side. The better to determine the causal role these areas play in recovery of motor function, we assessed cerebral activation during motor activity longitudinally after hemiparesis due to cerebral infarction. A secondary goal was to ascertain the relation between mirror movements and activation ipsilateral to motor activity. Positron ...

      BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: We sought to assess the type, frequency, and clinical predictors of neuromedical complications occurring during inpatient rehabilitation after stroke.

      METHODS: One hundred consecutive patient records were reviewed. All medical and neurological complications requiring a physician's order for further evaluation or treatment were recorded.

      RESULTS: Complications were urinary tract infection (44 cases), depression (33), musculoskeletal pain (31), urinary retention ...
