Background:  While border‐zone infarcts (BZI) account for about 10% of strokes, studies on related aphasia are infrequent. The aim of this work was to redefine specifically their early clinical pattern and evolution. 
Atypical clinical presentations in right hemispheric infarcts: complex stories beyond neurological examination and diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging
TLDR
Three cases of atypical representation of left hemispheric syndromes with right hemispherical lesions are introduced and the possible mechanisms underlying such disorders and their clinical implications are explored. Expand
Premorbid language function: a prognostic factor for functional outcome in aphasia?
Stroke lesion size and location are understood to be more accurate predictors of recovery from aphasia than demographic variables such as age, education, or socioeconomic status.We hypothesise that...
Borderzone Strokes and Transcortical Aphasia
TLDR
This specific aphasic pattern is interesting in clinical practice because it prompts the suspicion of a BZI before the MRI is done, and it helps in the planning of rehabilitation and in providing adapted information to the patient and family concerning the likelihood of language recovery. Expand
Cortical border-zone infarcts: clinical features, causes and outcome
TLDR
Some clinical features are overrepresented in C-BZIs, including initial transient symptoms preceding the onset of a completed deficit, transcortical aphasia and early seizures, leading to an overall good prognosis. Expand
Advances in neurology 2011–12
TLDR
In the year 2011, several important advances in neurology and the neurosciences published in the European Journal of Neurology were published, with the most active field was that of stroke pathophysiology, treatment and outcomes. Expand
Validation of a prediction model for long-term outcome of aphasia after stroke
TLDR
The original model, renamed SPEAK-12, has good discriminative properties, but needs further external validation, and may be used in daily practice to discriminate between patients with good and patients with poor outcome of aphasia at six months after stroke. Expand
Post-stroke Aphasia
Aphasia is a generic term used to describe a range of impairments in language function following acquired brain damage typically involving the left hemisphere [1–3]. Aphasia may affect all modes ofExpand
THROMBOLYSIS AND EARLY SPEECH AND LANGUAGE RECOVERY AFTER STROKE
TLDR
Examination of speech and language recovery in the first three months after stroke in individuals with aphasia indicates that both individuals who did and those who did not receive tPA demonstrated significant gains in language skills. Expand
Tools and Early Management of Language and Swallowing Disorders in Acute Stroke Patients
TLDR
Patients in the stroke units to achieve full benefits from the management proposed in this paper will benefit from diminution of complications and better long-term functional prognosis. Expand
[Language and swallowing disorders in acute stroke patients: tools and early management].
TLDR
A standardized protocol should be used to screen for and manage swallowing disorders in acute stroke patients and imply co-operation and coordination between the medical and allied profession teams and the daily presence of a speech and language therapist. 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
Acute transcortical mixed aphasia. A carotid occlusion syndrome with pial and watershed infarcts.
TLDR
Four patients with their first stroke showed acute transcortical mixed aphasia characterized by nonfluent speech with impaired naming, semantic paraphasias, echolalia, impaired comprehension, good repetition, reading, and writing on dictation, highly suggestive of infarction due to ICA occlusion. Expand
Watershed cerebral infarcts: retrospective study of 24 cases.
TLDR
Main clinical features were: in anterior location, lower limb weakness and frontal syndrome with transcortical motor aphasia in left lesions or spatial dyscalculia in right ones; in posterior location, brachiofacial weakness with constant quadranopsia and hypoesthesia, and Gerstmann syndrome in left lesion. Expand
Isolation of speech area from focal brain ischemia.
TLDR
A patient with atrial fibrillation and internal carotid artery occlusion developed mixed transcortical aphasia and the syndrome of isolation of speech area may be caused by vascular conditions which are able to produce simultaneous pial artery and watershed infarcts. Expand
Unilateral watershed cerebral infarcts
TLDR
Patients with symptomatic unilateral watershed cerebral infarct had internal carotid artery occlusion or tight stenosis associated with a hemodynamically significant cardiopathy, increased hematocrit, or acute hypotension, and each type had a characteristic neurologic picture. Expand
Localization in transcortical sensory aphasia.
TLDR
The lesions shown on computed tomography and isotope scans of 15 patients who satisfied the objective criteria based on test scores were studied and showed a unique posterior parieto-occipital location of lesions. Expand
Aphasia after Stroke: Type, Severity and Prognosis
TLDR
The outcome for language function was predicted by initial severity of the aphasia and by the initial stroke severity (assessed by the Scandinavian Stroke Scale), but not by age, sex or type of aphasIA. Expand
Diffusion- and perfusion-weighted MRI patterns in borderzone infarcts.
TLDR
It is postulate that the perfusion abnormality varies according to the mechanism of the borderzone infarction, and regional perfusion deficits occurring with hypotension in the absence of significant large-artery disease may not be revealed by PWI. Expand
Recovery patterns and prognosis in aphasia.
TLDR
Long-term follow-up demonstrated that global aphasics have a poor prognosis, while Broca's and Wernicke's have an intermediate one and complete recovery occurred frequently among anomic, conduction and transcortical aphasICS and in more than half of the traumatic cases. Expand
Vascular Aphasias: Main Characteristics of Patients Hospitalized in Acute Stroke Units
TLDR
It is shown that vascular aphasias are frequently severe or nonclassic at the acute stage, a finding explained in part by the presence of a previous stroke; that the age effect is due mainly to its influence on infarct location; and that the main determinant of aphasia characteristics is lesion location.
