Presenting features of neuroblastoma with spinal canal invasion. A prospective study of the International Society of Pediatric Oncology Europe - Neuroblastoma (SIOPEN)

This prospective study confirms that children with NB-SCI differ from NBs without SCI, and provides more detailed information regarding presenting symptoms, time intervals between SCI symptoms, medical visit and diagnosis, and correlations between symptoms and imaging features.

Cerebellum regulating cerebral functional cortex through multiple pathways in complete thoracolumbar spinal cord injury

Different degrees of structural and functional changes occurred in each subregion of cerebellum following CTSCI, and FC change between vermis_10 and right fusiform gyrus plays the most important role in dysfunction and may become an important neural network index of rehabilitation therapy.

The Effect of Perturbation-Based Balance Training and Conventional Intensive Balance Training on Reactive Stepping Ability in Individuals With Incomplete Spinal Cord Injury or Disease: A Randomized Clinical Trial

Balance training is beneficial for individuals with iSCI/D, but the addition of manual perturbations did not prove advantageous for performance on a measure of reactive stepping ability.

Cerebrospinal fluid levels of GFAP and pNF-H are elevated in patients with chronic spinal cord injury and neurological deterioration

The present findings suggest that in patients with spinal cord tethering, CSF GFAP and pNF-H levels might reflect ongoing scar formation and neuronal injury potentially responsible for progressive neurological deterioration.

Restoring the Sense of Touch Using a Sensorimotor Demultiplexing Neural Interface

Gait rehabilitation in persons with spinal cord injury using innovative technologies: an observational study

The data provides initial evidence of the potential value of these technologies, especially in persons with SCI having LEMS > 10, and persons affected by SCI can safely experience their walking function with RAGT and FES therapy.

Brain motor control assessment post intensive whole-body exercise vs. upper body exercise after spinal cord injury

BMCA is a valuable objective assessment tool that could add resolution to the clinical evaluation of patients with SCI post different therapeutic techniques.

Ergoterapia in persone con lesione spinale affetteda dolori neuropatici. Una revisione dellaletteratura

Le evidenze ad oggi a disposizione nonostante riportino risultati positivi in merito all’implementazione di tale approccio nella presa a carico della casistica sopracitata, necessitano maggiore ricerca e raggiungimento di campioni piu numerosi al fine di poterne generalizzare l’effetto.

Five times sit-to-stand test for ambulatory individuals with spinal cord injury: a psychometric study on the effects of arm placements

The current findings recommend the FTSST for ambulatory individuals with SCI using arms free by sides, with excellent rater and test–retest reliability and a modest to strong correlation with their physical ability.

Effects of training with a neuro-mechano stimulator rehabilitation bicycle on functional recovery and paired-reflex depression of the soleus in individuals with incomplete paralysis: a proof-of-principle study

Overall, participants with spasticity showed increased soleus H-reflex suppression after one training session with mechanical stimulation and reduced spasticsity scores after long training, which is interpreted as evidence that the training influenced both presynaptic and postsynaptic inhibitory mechanisms acting on soleus motoneurons.



Motor classification of spinal cord injuries with mobility, morbidity and recovery indices

A standardized motor examination is introduced that will aid in the direct comparison of future results for any spinal cord treatment regimes and tables of MIi and recovery rates have been presented to aid the correct classification of new patients and the prediction of their present chances of motor recovery.

The value of postural reduction in the initial management of closed injuries of the spine with paraplegia and tetraplegia

The incidence of various types of fracture and fracture-dislocation and the degree of reduction achieved by postural reduction is analysed in relation to the initial and late neurological lesions.

Definition of complete spinal cord injury

Prospective serial neurological examinations were performed on 445 consecutive traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI) patients admitted for rehabilitation on an average of 22.8±15.6 days after injury, in order to compare the definitions in terms of consistency and prognostic ability.
