Deans' stroke musings

Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all the trillions and trillions of neurons that DIE each day because there are NO effective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 493 posts on hyperacute therapy, enough for researchers to spend decades proving them out. These are my personal ideas and blog on stroke rehabilitation and stroke research. Do not attempt any of these without checking with your medical provider. Unless you join me in agitating, when you need these therapies they won't be there.

What this blog is for:

Shortly after getting out of the hospital and getting NO information on the process or protocols of stroke rehabilitation and recovery I started searching on the internet and found that no other survivor received useful information. This is an attempt to cover all stroke rehabilitation information that should be readily available to survivors so they can talk with informed knowledge to their medical staff. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.

Theta burst stimulation a new paradigm of non-invasive brain stimulation for post-stroke upper limb motor rehabilitation

I bet your hospital has no way to provide this for your recovery. If this truly works then the presidents of our fucking failures of stroke associations should be contacting every single stroke hospital in the world to get this available for stroke patients. There are no excuses that that notification can't be done.

ABSTRACT
Objectives: The aim of this study was to perform a brief review of studies which investigated the effects of theta burst stimulation (TBS) as a new paradigm of non-invasive brain stimulation on the upper limb motor function in patients with stroke.
Materials and methods: We searched studies published between January 1990 and October 2015 at PubMed, Medline, Cochrane, and CINAHL databases using the following key words: stroke and theta burst stimulation.
Results: Eleven of 67 studies met the inclusion criteria. Of these, six studies used multiple sessions of TBS intervention. The results of the selected studies showed a significant improvement in the upper limb motor functions in nine studies, whereas one study did not show any change after the TBS intervention. One of the selected study showed a negative trend in motor functions after the application of TBS.
Conclusion:Our study showed that TBS had a positive effect on motor recovery in patients with stroke. Combination of both intermittent TBS to the ipsilesional hemisphere and continuous TBS to the contralesional hemispheres would be more effective than the single application of any one of these technique.
