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: The aim of this study was to determine the effectiveness of constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT) in patients with hemiparesis/hemiplegia following stroke and to analyze the main characteristics of CIMT in patients with stroke. A literature review was performed of experimental studies published up to February 2016. Among other search procedures, a search was carried out in different electronic databases. Selection criteria were as follows: the included studies had to be randomized clinical trials, and individuals had to be older than 18 years and to have been treated with CIMT after being diagnosed with subacute or chronic stroke. Twelve articles were included, thus providing 12 treatment groups and 12 control groups. The total sample consisted of 435 individuals divided into 2 groups: 219 persons in treatment groups and 216 individuals in control groups. The oldest study was conducted in 2010 and the most recent in 2015. Results indicate that CIMT is an effective alternative treatment for the rehabilitation of stroke patients, and the benefits can be observed at both the physical and functional levels.
