OBJECTIVE To determine the prognostic value of clinical assessment and motor evoked potentials for upper limb strength and functional recovery after acute stroke, and to establish the possible use of motor evoked potentials in rehabilitation. DESIGN A prospective study. SUBJECTS Fifty-two patients with hemiparesis were enrolled one month post-stroke; 38 patients concluded the study at 12 months. METHODS Motor evoked potentials were recorded at baseline and after one month. Upper limb… CONTINUE READING
