Patients with aphasia and acute cerebral infarction in Wernicke´s area benefit from early intense speech and language therapy.
TLDR
Patients with aphasia and acute cerebral infarction in Wernicke´s area benefit from early intense speech and language therapy, according to ECR 2012. Expand
Dysphagia, dysarthria and aphasia following a first acute ischaemic stroke: incidence and associated factors
TLDR
The aim of this study was to determine the incidence and associated factors of dysphagia, dysarthria and aphasia following a first acute ischaemic stroke in patients admitted to a comprehensive stroke center. Expand
Early Prognosis Models in Aphasia
Considering the high incidence of poststroke aphasia and its significant economic impact on the society, there is a pressing need to understand the basic mechanisms of language recovery. Over theExpand
Clinical Trials for Treatment of Aphasia: Some Issues to Consider
  • K. Prasad
  • Medicine
  • Annals of Indian Academy of Neurology
  • 2020
TLDR
There is no clearly effective intervention for aphasia and randomized controlled trials (RCT) to test various hypothesized interventions are urgently needed. Expand
Aphasia rehabilitation: more than treating the language disorder.
TLDR
It is shown that treating the devastating consequences of neurological language disorders requires a prolonged interdisciplinary effort. Expand
Significance of Aphasia after First-Ever Acute Stroke: Impact on Early and Late Outcomes
Background: We assessed the incidence and determinants of aphasia attributable to first-ever acute stroke. We also investigated early and long-term mortality and 1-year dependence in post-strokeExpand
Task-induced brain activity in aphasic stroke patients: what is driving recovery?
TLDR
It is argued that recovery from aphasic stroke may be due as much to the function of high-order, domain-general networks as to recovery of language-specific networks, which has implications for rehabilitation. Expand
Thrombolysis’ benefits on early post-stroke language recovery in aphasia patients
TLDR
Identifying classic aphasia subtypes after thrombolysis is still possible since reperfused areas do not necessary change the classification or lead to completely different aphasic syndromes. Expand
Effect of aphasia on acute stroke outcomes
TLDR
Aphasia is independently associated with increased LOS and complications during the acute stroke admission, adding $2.16 billion annually to US acute stroke care, and the presence of aphasia was more likely to produce a poor functional outcome than hemiparesis. Expand
Semantic aphasia as a sole manifestation of acute stroke.
TLDR
The case of a patient who presented with language impairment as the only symptom in the acute stroke phase, leading to a diagnosis of vascular semantic aphasia is reported, and the importance of accurate language evaluation for stroke diagnosis will be discussed. Expand

Quantitative Study of the Rate of Recovery From Aphasia Due to Ischemic Stroke
The extent of recovery from aphasia following ischemic stroke has been evaluated by a quantitative method. The greatest improvement was observed during the first 3 months following onset. The rate ofExpand
Validation of four scales for the acute stage of stroke
TLDR
Whether a simplified scale for the acute stage of stroke–the Scandinavian Stroke Supervision scale–is sufficient for monitoring symptom progression of prognostic importance is validated. Expand
Aphasia in acute stroke: Incidence, determinants, and recovery
TLDR
Sex, handedness, and side of stroke lesion were not independent outcome predictors, and the influence of age was minimal, but a valid prognosis of aphasia could be made within 1 to 4 weeks after the stroke depending on the initial severity. Expand
Prognosis for improved verbal communication in aphasic stroke patients.
TLDR
The role of 10 selected prognostic variables in relation to recovery of verbal communication in a homogeneous sample of treated aphasic patients and the predictive value of these variables was slightly higher for patients with good TSP than for those with poor TSP. Expand
Prognosis for improved verbal communication in aphasic stroke patients.
TLDR
The role of 10 selected prognostic variables in relation to recovery of verbal communication in a homogeneous sample of treated aphasic patients and the predictive value of these variables was slightly higher for patients with good TSP than for those with poor TSP. Expand
Aphasia type, age and cerebral infarct localisation
TLDR
The predominance of fluent aphasia in older patients was related to the higher proportion of posterior infarcts in these patients, and the hypothesis of age-related changes in the anatomico-functional organisation of language areas was not supported. Expand
Etiology of stroke in patients with Wernicke's aphasia.
TLDR
Patients with Wernicke's aphasia should have computed tomography to exclude intracerebral hemorrhage before institution of anticoagulant therapy and an embolic source should be sought. Expand

Sex Differences in Recovery from Aphasia
TLDR
It was found that females recover significantly better than males in oral expression, but not in auditory verbal comprehension, suggesting the possibility of a different cerebral organization in males and females. Expand
