Rationale: The corticobulbar tract (CBT) is known to be involved in the motor function of the non-oculomotor cranial nuclei and controls the muscles of the face, head, and neck. Several studies have reported injury of the CBT in patients with brain injury, however, little is known about recovery of the injured CBT. Patient concerns: A 59-year-old right-handed male underwent decompressive craniectomy for management of brain swelling and intracerebral hemorrhage following an infarction in the… Expand
Changes in the prefronto-thalamic tract following cranioplasty
TLDR
The DTT changes suggest that C/P can affect the state of the PTT on both the OP and contra-OP sides, however, the limitation that DTT analysis may underestimate or overestimate fiber tract status due to regions of fiber complexity and crossing fiber should be considered. Expand
The Case of a Patient with Dysphagia and Dysarthria Diagnosed as Pseudobulbar Palsy Caused by Multiple Cerebral Infarction Treated with Banhahoobak-tang
TLDR
Korean medicine treatment could be effective for improving the symptoms of pseudobulbar palsy in patients and herbal medicine (Banhahoobak-tang) could be an effective choice for treating dysphagia. Expand
The Role of White Matter in the Neural Control of Swallowing: A Systematic Review
TLDR
There is sufficient evidence to conclude that white matter is critical in the neural control of swallowing, and several white matter structures were implicated across studies. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that the other neural structures in the subcortical white matter around the lateral ventricle are also vulnerable and are compatible with injuries of the corticospinal tract and fornix by subfalcine herniation, which has been reported in previous studies. Expand
Injury of the corticobulbar tract in patients with dysarthria following cerebral infarct: diffusion tensor tractography study
TLDR
Injury of the CBT in patients with dysarthria following cerebral infarct in the corona radiata is demonstrated using diffusion tensor tractography (DTT), indicating the importance of CBT evaluation for Dysarthria in patients of stroke patients. Expand
Reorganization of the Corticobublar Tract in a Patient with Bilateral Middle Cerebral Artery Territory Infarct.
TLDR
In this patient, it seems that the left CBT was reorganized into the posterior area of the infarcted lesion in terms of the dysphasia recovery course and DTT findings, indicating that this recovery from Dysphasia could be ascribed to brain plasticity, and not to resolution of local factors such as edema.

TLDR
A 25-year-old male patient, who underwent craniectomy and removal of hematoma for traumatic epidural hemorrhage and subarachnoid hemorrhage, showed severe spastic dysarthria at 3 years after onset and showed reducedmovement of the lip and tongue due to spasticity. Expand
Corticobulbar tract changes as predictors of dysarthria in childhood brain injury
TLDR
Examining the speech-related motor pathways using diffusion-weighted MRI tractography offers a promising prognostic tool for people with acquired, developmental, or degenerative neurologic conditions likely to affect speech. Expand
The impact of cranioplasty on neurological function
TLDR
A small but significant number of patients appear to improve clinically following cranioplasty, and the so-called syndrome of the trephined may be more common than had been previously appreciated. Expand
Injury of the Arcuate Fasciculus in the Nondominant Hemisphere by Subfalcine Herniation in Patients with Intracerebral Hemorrhage : Two Case Reports and Literature Review
TLDR
Injury of the arcuate fasciculus (AF) in the nondominant hemisphere in two patients who showed subfalcine herniation after intracerebral hemorrhage in the dominant hemisphere is demonstrated. Expand
Neurological recovery after cranioplasty.
TLDR
A patient who sustained a gunshot wound to the head was successfully treated with acute neurosurgical intervention and cranioplasty was used to repair a large skull defect six months after the injury. Expand
The anatomical location of the corticobulbar tract at the corona radiata in the human brain: Diffusion tensor tractography study
TLDR
According to the findings, the CBT was located almost halfway between the most anterior point and the most posterior point of the lateral ventricle at the CR, and almost one third between the midline and themost lateral point ofThe brain at theCR. Expand
Effect of levodopa in combination with physiotherapy on functional motor recovery after stroke: a prospective, randomised, double-blind study
TLDR
A single dose of levodopa is well tolerated and, when given in combination with physiotherapy, enhances motor recovery in patients with hemiplegia and will be a possible add- on during stroke rehabilitation. Expand
