OBJECTIVE We examined the prevalence of shunt dysfunction (e.g., overdraining or underdraining malfunctions) in patients with a ventriculoperitoneal shunt and elucidated effective countermeasures of a programmable valve shunt system in treatments for shunt dysfunction during rehabilitation therapy. SUBJECTS Among 114 patients with a ventriculoperitoneal(More)

We evaluated quantitatively the recovery from impairment and disability in hemiplegic stroke survivors who received cranioplasty in the chronic stage. Seven first-ever stroke survivors with hemiplegia (mean age 56+/-3 years) who required delayed (3-9 months after the onset) cranioplasty during continuous rehabilitation therapy were studied. Recovery grade(More)
