Speech Recovery Following Global Aphasia Without Hemiparesis
TLDR
Using the CT scan to determine lesion site and the initial severity of lan guage deficits can predict outcome accurately in patients with global aphasia without hemiparesis.
Global aphasia without other lateralizing signs.
TLDR
This debate is confused by the fact that, although hemiparesis was said to be absent, ten of the 12 described patients had some degree of right-sided weakness or corticospinal Computed tomographic scan of left hemisphere showing single temporoparietal infarct.
Language Dysfunction in White Matter: Lesions Without Significant Hemiparesis
TLDR
The localization of the lesions was more important in prognosis than lesion size, and prolonged dysphagia was associated with a poor prognosis.
Shifting of global aphasia to Wernicke’s aphasia in a patient with intact motor function: a case report
TLDR
Although this is a single case demonstration, the results may strengthen the role of the right hemisphere in GAWH patients and suggests additional study that examines the possible benefits of stimulating activity at right homologous regions for recovering language function after global aphasia.
Chapter 14 APHASIA I : CLINICAL AND ANATOMIC ISSUES
TLDR
Old questions such as cerebral laterality, the influence of handedness, the effects of gender and bilingualism on aphasia, and the mechanisms of recovery have been reexplored.
Global aphasia without hemiparesis: language profiles and lesion distribution
TLDR
Although patients with acute GAWH are similar on neurological examination, they are heterogeneous with respect to early aphasia profile, language recovery, and lesion profile.
Lesion localization of global aphasia without hemiparesis by overlapping of the brain magnetic resonance images
TLDR
This study is the first to demonstrate the heterogeneous anatomical involvement in global aphasia without hemiparesis by overlapping of the brain magnetic resonance images.
Impairment of language is related to left parieto-temporal glucose metabolism in aphasic stroke patients
TLDR
The close relation between left temporo-parietal functional activity and all five AAT subtests suggests that the different aspects of aphasia tested by AAT can be related to a common disorder of language processing in those areas.
The influence of infarct location on recovery from global aphasia
Abstract The influence of the anatomical location of the cerebral infarcts causing global aphasia on recover was studied on a sample of 54 global aphasics with first-ever strokes imaged by

Localisation of Lesions in Aphasia: Clinical-CT Scan Correlations in Stroke Patients
CT scan studies of aphasia.
TLDR
Describing of atypical aphasias associated with subcortical lesions and correlation of lesion site with specific, partial aspects of linguistic impairment are two areas where CT scan studies are increasing the authors' understanding of the language machinery in the brain.
Neurolinguistic status and localization of lesion in aphasic patients with exclusively consonant-vowel recurring utterances.
TLDR
Eight patients whose speech production consisted exclusively of one and the same recurring consonant-vowel (CV) syllable, similar to Broca's first patient Leborgne, represent a variety of global aphasia, characterized by fluency of output and the preservation of some prosody.
Occipital infarctions associated with hemiparesis.
TLDR
71 patients with a CT-verified infarction in the irrigation area of the posterior cerebral arteries were studied retrospectively and in 17 subjects a hemiparesis was associated with the occipital infarctions, but no adequate cause was found.
