Recovery of an injured corticobulbar tract in a patient with stroke
A 59-year-old right-handed male who underwent decompressive craniectomy for management of brain swelling and intracerebral hemorrhage following an infarction in the left middle cerebral artery territory is demonstrated to be completely recovered from dysphagia using DTT. Expand
Difference of recovery course of motor weakness according to state of corticospinal tract in putaminal hemorrhage
Patients with preserved integrity of the CST showed better motor function than patients with discontinued integrity of a corticospinal tract at chronic stage, and significant motor recovery was achieved during the first four months after onset. Expand
Change of ascending reticular activating system with recovery from vegetative state to minimally conscious state in a stroke patient
It appeared that the prefrontal cortex and thalamus, which showed increased neural connectivity, contributed to recovery from a VS to an MCS in this patient. Expand

A 56-year-old female patient underwent decompressive craniectomy for removal of an intracerebral hematoma in the right temporoparietal lobe and spontaneous subarachnoid hemorrhage due to a rupturedExpand
Injury of the Lower Ascending Reticular Activating System in a Patient with Cerebral Infarct
This study evaluated the lower portion of the ARAS between the pontine reticular formation and the thalamic intralaminar nuclei in a patient with cerebral infarct, using diffusion tensor tractography (DTT), and found that both lower ARASs were thinner than those of normal control subjects, and thinning of theARAS indicated neural injury.

Diagnosis of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome I Following Traumatic Axonal Injury of the Corticospinal Tract in a Patient with Mild Traumatic Brain Injury
CRPS I of the right hand in this patient appeared to be related to traumatic axonal injury of the left CST following mild traumatic brain injury. Expand
Title: Injury characteristics of the Papez circuit in patients with diffuse axonal injury: a diffusion tensor tractography study.
It is found that all four portions of the Papez circuit in the patient group were vulnerable to DAI, and among four portions, the fornix was the most vulnerable portion in terms of injury incidence and severity. Expand
Recovery of injured Broca's portion of arcuate fasciculus in the dominant hemisphere in a patient with traumatic brain injury
Recovery of injured Broca's portion of AF in the dominant hemisphere along with excellent improvement of aphasia was demonstrated in a patient with TBI, which has important implications in brain rehabilitation. Expand
Diagnosis of Conversion Disorder Using Diffusion Tensor Tractography and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation in a Patient with Mild Traumatic Brain Injury
Using DTT and TMS, conversion disorder was demonstrated in a patient with mild TBI, who showed severe weakness of an arm, suggesting the usefulness of an evaluation of the CST and CFTs from the secondary motor areas using DTT, and the CST using TMS for patients who complain of motor weakness due to conversion disorder.
