Stroke (Strokes)

A group of pathological conditions characterized by sudden, non-convulsive loss of neurological function due to BRAIN ISCHEMIA or INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGES. Stroke is classified by the type of tissue NECROSIS, such as the anatomic location, vasculature involved, etiology, age of the affected individual, and hemorrhagic vs. non-hemorrhagic nature. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp777-810)

01/01/2014 - "Balance self-efficacy, a psychological factor, should not be overlooked in attempting to improve functional outcomes in stroke survivors because balance self-efficacy impact ADL through the mediation of balance ability It would be appropriate to assess the balance efficacy as well as balance ability for maximizing performing tasks such as ADLs for individual with stroke Interventions that use a combination of balance training and balance self-efficacy enhancement could be the most effective for improving ADL in the case of community-dwelling stroke patients."
08/01/2011 - "Responsiveness, minimal detectable change, and minimal clinically important difference of the Nottingham Extended Activities of Daily Living Scale in patients with improved performance after stroke rehabilitation."
10/01/2015 - "[Conclusion] The present study showed that robot-assisted gait training is not only effective in improving balance and gait performance but also improves trunk balance and motor skills required by high-severity stroke patients to perform activities daily living. "
01/01/2015 - "Patients participating in the ESD rehabilitation models were, compared with traditional treatment, significantly associated with improved ADL ability measured by the mRS when controlling for confounding factors, indicating that patients with social needs and physical impairment after stroke may benefit from ESD rehabilitation models."
12/01/2014 - "Both individuals after stroke rehabilitated in hospital and those rehabilitated in environmental conditions achieved a significant improvement in functional of paretic limbs and improving independence in activities of daily living. "
