A new therapeutic method for the rehabilitation of central paresis of the upper extremity, especially of fine skilled finger movements, is presented. The therapeutic concept is the activation of reorganization processes in the CNS. These processes are elicited by the induction of proprioceptive input to the CNS which corresponds physiologically to the lost(More)
Nach wie vor entscheiden vor allem der Zeitpunkt der richtigen Diagnosestellung, der unmittelbare Beginn einer geeigneten spezifischen Therapie und die kompetente Behandlung auf einer Stroke-Unit die Langzeitprognose von Schlaganfallpatienten. Daher finden sich bundesweit Bestrebungen, die erforderliche fachliche Kompetenz und infrastrukturellen(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Stroke Unit care improves stroke prognosis and is recommended for all patients with stroke. In rural areas, population-wide implementation of Stroke Units is challenging. Therefore, the TeleMedical Project for integrative Stroke Care (TEMPiS) was established in 2003 as a TeleStroke Unit network to overcome this barrier in Southeast(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW This review provides a comprehensive overview of the management of acute stroke within the framework of telestroke services. RECENT FINDINGS The remote neurological examination using high quality videoconferencing coupled with remote review of neuroimaging has gained acceptance and proved its reliability in various publications.(More)
TeleStroke has become an increasing means to overcome shortage of stroke expertise in underserved areas. This rapidly growing field has triggered a large amount of publications in recent years. We aimed to analyze recent advances in the field of telemedicine for acute stroke, with main focus on prehospital management, Stroke Unit treatment and network(More)
High blood pressure is common in acute stroke patients. Very high as well as very low blood pressure is associated with poor outcome. Spontaneous fall of blood pressure within the first few days after stroke was associated both with neurological improvement and impairment. Several randomized trials investigated the pharmacological reduction of blood(More)
Intracranial hemorrhages are associated with high rates of disability and mortality. Telemedicine in general provides clinical healthcare at a distance by using videotelephony and teleradiology and is used particularly in acute stroke care medicine (TeleStroke). TeleStroke considerably improves quality of stroke care (for instance, by increasing(More)
