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.

Abstract: Study measured trunk reposition error (TRE), a component of trunk control, in patients with acute stroke compared with age-matched healthy subjects, and investigated whether TRE deficits were potentially mitigated by time spent in a rehabilitation setting. TRE requires the subject to adopt a predetermined position, and then return to that exact position moments later as accurately as possible. Sixty subjects, 30 with acute stroke and 30 healthy controls, completed this study. Subjects with acute stroke were measured before and after an inpatient acute rehabilitation stay. TRE was evaluated using an electromagnetic tracking device. The Berg Balance Scale, Postural Assessment Scale for Stroke, and Functional Independence Measure were used to assess rehabilitation outcomes. Pre-post measures were analyzed with paired t-tests. Between-group measures were analyzed with independent w-tests. There were significant between-group differences (acute stroke versus controls) for all functional outcome measures and for three-dimensional TRE. There were significant improvements in all functional outcome measures following an inpatient rehabilitation stay. All measures of TRE reduced but did not achieve significance. TRE was not as severely impaired as anticipated and was variable based on plane of measure. Time in a rehabilitation setting produced significant improvements in functional outcomes but TRE improvements were not as robust. These results indicate a need for further investigation of the strength of the interrelationship between TRE and function.
