Motor and functional recovery in patients with post-stroke depression
TLDR
Results show a negative impact of PSD on the functional recovery process after discharge and not during hospitalisation, indicating PSD is not an influencing factor for motor recovery. Expand
Glenohumeral subluxation in hemiplegia: An overview.
This review summarizes the recent advances in glenohumeral subluxation (GHS) in hemiplegic patients and analyzes the reliability and validity of clinical evaluation and the effectiveness of differentExpand
Shoulder subluxation after stroke: relationships with pain and motor recovery.
TLDR
Glenohumeral subluxation is a factor associated with shoulder pain development and with arm motor recovery and should be treated in the acute stage of hemiplegia. Expand
Physiotherapy for pusher behaviour in a patient with post-stroke hemiplegia.
TLDR
A literature-based physiotherapy treatment for a stroke patient with clear pusher behaviour makes the patient able to use compensatory strategies for functional activities and results were not maintained to the end of the treatment period. Expand
Scale for Contraversive Pushing: Cutoff Scores for Diagnosing “Pusher Behavior” and Construct Validity
TLDR
The results support the validity of the SCP and suggest the need to choose different SCP cutoff criteria (Crit_2 or Crit_3) according to the aim of the evaluation. Expand
Outcomes from ischemic stroke subtypes classified by the Oxfordshire Community Stroke Project: a systematic review.
TLDR
Stroke subtype is a factor influencing outcome, however, differences among groups, overall in terms of impairment, should be further investigated. Expand
The pusher syndrome in a patient with cerebellar infarction.
Total Hip Arthroplasty After Hip Fracture or Osteoarthritis: Are There Differences in Characteristics and Outcomes in the Early Rehabilitative Stage?
TLDR
Results support the idea that OA patient can have a reduced PROM when compared with HF patients, and improve in all clinical outcome measures with less improvement in PROM abduction scores in the OA group. Expand
Recovery from stroke in patients with diabetes mellitus.
TLDR
It is suggested that diabetes has no influence on motor and functional outcome within the acute and post-acute phase after stroke, and motor recovery was similar in the two groups. Expand
Differences in motor recovery between upper and lower limbs: does stroke subtype make the difference?
TLDR
This study confirms similar motor recovery of limbs in the entire sample, but shows that the LL has greater recovery than the UL in patients with total anterior circulation infarcts, and functional prognosis should take into account the distinct stroke subtypes. Expand
