This study aimed to investigate the effect of serum albumin at admission, measured within 24 h after stroke onset, on the functional outcome in ischaemic stroke patients. The medical records of 76 first-ever hemiplegic ischaemic stroke patients were reviewed. Collected data included age, sex, initial stroke severity, cerebrovascular risk factors,(More)
This study measured the prevalence of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) use among Korean stroke patients. Questionnaire-based 20-min interviews were conducted at the hospitals by a trained nurse after an outpatient visit. It included questions on demographic information, clinical information and the utilization of CAM. Of 304 stroke-patient(More)
OBJECTIVE By using a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) technique we assessed brain activation patterns while subjects were viewing the living environments representing natural and urban scenery. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 28 healthy right-handed subjects underwent an fMRI on a 3.0 Tesla MRI scanner. The stimulation paradigm consisted of(More)
This study was performed to evaluate the effect of C-reactive protein (CRP) measured within 24 hr after stroke onset on functional outcome in ischemic stroke patients. The medical records of 28 first-ever hemiplegic ischemic stroke patients with the lesions on the middle cerebral arterial territory were reviewed. Subjects were classified into experimental(More)
We experienced a rare case of winged scapula that was caused by the rupture of the rhomboideus major and the lower trapezius muscles without any nerve injury in a 12 yr old female after she had carried a heavy backpack. Electrodiagnostic study revealed that the onset latencies, amplitudes and conduction velocities were normal in the long thoracic nerve, the(More)
The aim of this study was to follow up the changes in the number of motor units according to the Brunnstrom stage through a motor unit number estimation of the Fwave (F-MUNE) after a stroke, and to identify the functional significance of F-MUNE. Twenty-five patients (15 men, 10 women) with a first unilateral stroke were recruited. The maximal M-potential(More)
Spontaneous cervical epidural hematoma (SCEH) is an uncommon cause of acute nontraumatic myelopathy. SCEH presenting as Brown-Sequard syndrome is extremely rare. A 65-year-old man had motor weakness in the left extremities right after his mother's funeral. He received thrombolytic therapy under the impression of acute cerebral infarction at a local(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of combined therapy of exercise and nootropic agent on cognitive function in a focal cerebral infarction rat model. METHOD Forty 10-week old male Sprague-Dawley rats were subjected to photothrombotic cerebral infarction of the left parietal lobe. All rats were randomly divided into 4 groups: group A was photothrombotic(More)
BACKGROUND Development of a long-term stroke care plan requires serial assessment of long-term patient function and consideration of caregiver mood. However, to date, few comprehensive cohort studies have included both stroke patients and caregivers. METHODS/DESIGN KOSCO is a large, multi-centre prospective cohort study for all acute first-ever stroke(More)
OBJECTIVE To obtain information on the socioeconomic, medical, and functional status of polio survivors, and to use these results as the preliminary data for establishing the middle-aged cohort of polio survivors. METHODS The subjects were recruited based on the medical records of multiple hospitals and centers. They were assessed through a structured(More)
