Residual motor control and cortical representations of function following hemispherectomy: effects of etiology.

Abstract

Fifteen posthemispherectomy children were examined to assess residual motor function of the paretic side using the 74-point Fugl-Meyer Assessment of Motor Recovery scale. The degree of residual motor control differed for upper and lower extremities, with hand function being most severely impaired. Posthemispherectomy motor outcomes also differed as a… (More)
