BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE We aimed to determine if ischemia involving Broca area predicts Broca aphasia more reliably in acute or chronic stroke. METHODS We included consecutive right-hand-dominant patients with left hemisphere ischemic stroke (<48 hours from onset for acute stroke or >6 months after stroke for chronic stroke). MRI scans were analyzed for ischemic lesions or hypoperfusion in Broca area (Brodmann areas 44 and 45). Patients were scored on the Western Aphasia Battery to classify… CONTINUE READING
