Objective: To examine the rate and extent of improvement from the different types of aphasia in the first year after stroke. Design: A prospective longitudinal study. Setting: A specialist stroke unit. Participants: Seventy-five aphasic patients with first-ever stroke. Intervention: The type of aphasia was classified according to the criteria of the Western Aphasia Battery. The Western Aphasia Battery aphasia quotient was used to measure the initial severity and the rate and extent of… Expand
Severity of Post-stroke Aphasia According to Aphasia Type and Lesion Location in Koreans
TLDR
Results revealed that within 3 months of stroke, global aphasia was the more severely affected type and cortical lesions were more likely to affect language function than subcortical lesions. Expand
Recovery of aphasia after stroke: a 1-year follow-up study
TLDR
In aphasic stroke patients, various linguistic components have a different recovery pattern, with phonology showing the longest period of recovery that paralleled aphasia severity, as measured with the Token test. Expand
Spontaneous Recovery and Intervention in Aphasia
The recovery of aphasia occurs immediately after the onset of the disease and lasts for several months or more. The speed and degree of improvement in aphasia vary depending on the time since onset,Expand
A 3-year evolution of linguistic disorders in aphasia after stroke
TLDR
The results suggest that it is meaningful to assess the recovery of the linguistic levels separately, starting from the acute stage poststroke. Expand
Clinical usefulness of the Spanish version of the Mississippi Aphasia Screening Test (MASTsp): validation in stroke patients
TLDR
Clinical validation of the Spanish version of the Mississippi Aphasia Screening Test (MASTsp) as a screening test for language disorders in patients who have suffered a stroke shows a good convergent validity, interobserver validity, test—retest reliability and a moderate sensitivity to detect changes over time. Expand
[Clinical usefulness of the Spanish version of the Mississippi Aphasia Screening Test (MASTsp): validation in stroke patients].
TLDR
Clinical validation of the Spanish version of the Mississippi Aphasia Screening Test (MASTsp) as a screening test for language disorders in patients who have suffered a stroke shows a good convergent validity, interobserver validity, test-retest reliability and a moderate sensitivity to detect changes over time.

The Factors Associated with Good Responses to Speech Therapy Combined with Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation in Post-stroke Aphasic Patients
TLDR
Speech therapy with tDCS was established as a treatment tool for aphasic patients after stroke and lower initial severity was associated with good responses. Expand
Global aphasia as a predictor of mortality in the acute phase of a first stroke.
TLDR
Global aphasia in acute stroke can adversely affect prognosis, translated into impairment of dominant perisylvian vascular territories, with mutism as an important semiological element. Expand

Aphasia after Stroke: Type, Severity and Prognosis
TLDR
The outcome for language function was predicted by initial severity of the aphasia and by the initial stroke severity (assessed by the Scandinavian Stroke Scale), but not by age, sex or type of aphasIA. Expand
Aphasia in acute stroke: Incidence, determinants, and recovery
TLDR
Sex, handedness, and side of stroke lesion were not independent outcome predictors, and the influence of age was minimal, but a valid prognosis of aphasia could be made within 1 to 4 weeks after the stroke depending on the initial severity. Expand
Recovery patterns and prognosis in aphasia.
TLDR
Long-term follow-up demonstrated that global aphasics have a poor prognosis, while Broca's and Wernicke's have an intermediate one and complete recovery occurred frequently among anomic, conduction and transcortical aphasICS and in more than half of the traumatic cases. Expand
Aphasia after stroke: natural history and associated deficits.
TLDR
Aphasia was associated with more severe disability, and with a less good recovery of social activities, but did not cause any measurable increase in stress upon carers. Expand
Evolution of Aphasia in the First Year Post-Onset
TLDR
An expansion and integration of Gloning and Quatember's (1964) model of evolution is proposed on the basis of combined results from several studies and the influence of aging, evolution of aphasia and the emergence of dementia post-stroke are discussed. Expand
High scores on the Western Aphasia Battery correlate with good functional communication skills (as measured with the Communicative Effectiveness Index) in aphasic stroke patients
TLDR
The study suggests that in the acute and subacute stages of stroke the scores of WAB and CETI can be surmised from one another. Expand
Aphasia, Depression, and Non-Verbal Cognitive Impairment in Ischaemic Stroke
TLDR
Although the prevalence of depression in aphasic patients decreases in the long term, the proportion of patients suffering from major depression seems to increase, and the importance of the multidimensional evaluation of aphasics stroke patients is emphasized. Expand
Aphasia in Acute Stroke
TLDR
In both fluent and nonfluent groups, hemiparesis and/or visual field cut were associated with poor prognosis; among survivors, aphasia improved in 52%, and in only 13% did it clear completely. Expand
Prognostic indicators and the pattern of recovery of communication in aphasic stroke patients.
TLDR
The biographical variables of age, months post-onset and handedness were shown to be differentially correlated with improvements and indicate that language recovery is relatively independent of age and of handedness. Expand
Intensity of Aphasia Therapy, Impact on Recovery
TLDR
Intense therapy over a short amount of time can improve outcomes of speech and language therapy for stroke patients with aphasia. Expand
