Hemiplegia: Severe or complete loss of motor function on one side of the body. This condition is usually caused by BRAIN DISEASES that are localized to the cerebral hemisphere opposite to the side of weakness. Less frequently, BRAIN STEM lesions; cervical SPINAL CORD DISEASES; PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES; and other conditions may manifest as hemiplegia. The term hemiparesis (see PARESIS) refers to mild to moderate weakness involving one side of the body.Agnosia: Loss of the ability to comprehend the meaning or recognize the importance of various forms of stimulation that cannot be attributed to impairment of a primary sensory modality. Tactile agnosia is characterized by an inability to perceive the shape and nature of an object by touch alone, despite unimpaired sensation to light touch, position, and other primary sensory modalities.Cerebral Palsy: A heterogeneous group of nonprogressive motor disorders caused by chronic brain injuries that originate in the prenatal period, perinatal period, or first few years of life. The four major subtypes are spastic, athetoid, ataxic, and mixed cerebral palsy, with spastic forms being the most common. The motor disorder may range from difficulties with fine motor control to severe spasticity (see MUSCLE SPASTICITY) in all limbs. Spastic diplegia (Little disease) is the most common subtype, and is characterized by spasticity that is more prominent in the legs than in the arms. Pathologically, this condition may be associated with LEUKOMALACIA, PERIVENTRICULAR. (From Dev Med Child Neurol 1998 Aug;40(8):520-7)Muscle Hypertonia: Abnormal increase in skeletal or smooth muscle tone. Skeletal muscle hypertonicity may be associated with PYRAMIDAL TRACT lesions or BASAL GANGLIA DISEASES.Stroboscopy: The observation of successive phases of MOVEMENT by use of a flashing light.Voice Training: A variety of techniques used to help individuals utilize their voice for various purposes and with minimal use of muscle energy.Kinesthesis: Sense of movement of a part of the body, such as movement of fingers, elbows, knees, limbs, or weights.Exercise Movement Techniques: Methods or programs of physical activities which can be used to promote, maintain, or restore the physical and physiological well-being of an individual.Vocal Cord Paralysis: Congenital or acquired paralysis of one or both VOCAL CORDS. This condition is caused by defects in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM, the VAGUS NERVE and branches of LARYNGEAL NERVES. Common symptoms are VOICE DISORDERS including HOARSENESS or APHONIA.Denial (Psychology): Refusal to admit the truth or reality of a situation or experience.Muscle Hypotonia: A diminution of the skeletal muscle tone marked by a diminished resistance to passive stretching.Gait: Manner or style of walking.Hemispherectomy: A neurosurgical procedure that removes or disconnects the epileptogenic CEREBRAL CORTEX of a hemisphere. Hemispherectomy is usually performed for patients with intractable unilateral EPILEPSY due to malformations of cortical development or brain lesions. Depending on the epileptogenic area in the hemisphere, cortical removal can be total or partial.Cerebral Infarction: The formation of an area of NECROSIS in the CEREBRUM caused by an insufficiency of arterial or venous blood flow. Infarcts of the cerebrum are generally classified by hemisphere (i.e., left vs. right), lobe (e.g., frontal lobe infarction), arterial distribution (e.g., INFARCTION, ANTERIOR CEREBRAL ARTERY), and etiology (e.g., embolic infarction).Dysphonia: Difficulty and/or pain in PHONATION or speaking.Wheelchairs: Chairs mounted on wheels and designed to be propelled by the occupant.Cerebrovascular Disorders: A spectrum of pathological conditions of impaired blood flow in the brain. They can involve vessels (ARTERIES or VEINS) in the CEREBRUM, the CEREBELLUM, and the BRAIN STEM. Major categories include INTRACRANIAL ARTERIOVENOUS MALFORMATIONS; BRAIN ISCHEMIA; CEREBRAL HEMORRHAGE; and others.Pneumoencephalography: Radiographic visualization of the cerebral ventricles by injection of air or other gas.Stroke: A group of pathological conditions characterized by sudden, non-convulsive loss of neurological function due to BRAIN ISCHEMIA or INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGES. Stroke is classified by the type of tissue NECROSIS, such as the anatomic location, vasculature involved, etiology, age of the affected individual, and hemorrhagic vs. non-hemorrhagic nature. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp777-810)Ocular Motility Disorders: Disorders that feature impairment of eye movements as a primary manifestation of disease. These conditions may be divided into infranuclear, nuclear, and supranuclear disorders. Diseases of the eye muscles or oculomotor cranial nerves (III, IV, and VI) are considered infranuclear. Nuclear disorders are caused by disease of the oculomotor, trochlear, or abducens nuclei in the BRAIN STEM. Supranuclear disorders are produced by dysfunction of higher order sensory and motor systems that control eye movements, including neural networks in the CEREBRAL CORTEX; BASAL GANGLIA; CEREBELLUM; and BRAIN STEM. Ocular torticollis refers to a head tilt that is caused by an ocular misalignment. Opsoclonus refers to rapid, conjugate oscillations of the eyes in multiple directions, which may occur as a parainfectious or paraneoplastic condition (e.g., OPSOCLONUS-MYOCLONUS SYNDROME). (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p240)Neurologic Examination: Assessment of sensory and motor responses and reflexes that is used to determine impairment of the nervous system.Muscle Spasticity: A form of muscle hypertonia associated with upper MOTOR NEURON DISEASE. Resistance to passive stretch of a spastic muscle results in minimal initial resistance (a "free interval") followed by an incremental increase in muscle tone. Tone increases in proportion to the velocity of stretch. Spasticity is usually accompanied by HYPERREFLEXIA and variable degrees of MUSCLE WEAKNESS. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p54)Electric Stimulation Therapy: Application of electric current in treatment without the generation of perceptible heat. It includes electric stimulation of nerves or muscles, passage of current into the body, or use of interrupted current of low intensity to raise the threshold of the skin to pain.Patient Positioning: Moving a patient into a specific position or POSTURE to facilitate examination, surgery, or for therapeutic purposes.Paresis: A general term referring to a mild to moderate degree of muscular weakness, occasionally used as a synonym for PARALYSIS (severe or complete loss of motor function). In the older literature, paresis often referred specifically to paretic neurosyphilis (see NEUROSYPHILIS). "General paresis" and "general paralysis" may still carry that connotation. Bilateral lower extremity paresis is referred to as PARAPARESIS.Arm: The superior part of the upper extremity between the SHOULDER and the ELBOW.Upper Extremity: The region of the upper limb in animals, extending from the deltoid region to the HAND, and including the ARM; AXILLA; and SHOULDER.Orthotic Devices: Apparatus used to support, align, prevent, or correct deformities or to improve the function of movable parts of the body.Motor Skills: Performance of complex motor acts.Brain Damage, Chronic: A condition characterized by long-standing brain dysfunction or damage, usually of three months duration or longer. Potential etiologies include BRAIN INFARCTION; certain NEURODEGENERATIVE DISORDERS; CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; ANOXIA, BRAIN; ENCEPHALITIS; certain NEUROTOXICITY SYNDROMES; metabolic disorders (see BRAIN DISEASES, METABOLIC); and other conditions.Equinus Deformity: Plantar declination of the foot.Infarction, Anterior Cerebral Artery: NECROSIS occurring in the ANTERIOR CEREBRAL ARTERY system, including branches such as Heubner's artery. These arteries supply blood to the medial and superior parts of the CEREBRAL HEMISPHERE, Infarction in the anterior cerebral artery usually results in sensory and motor impairment in the lower body.Physical Therapy Modalities: Therapeutic modalities frequently used in PHYSICAL THERAPY SPECIALTY by PHYSICAL THERAPISTS or physiotherapists to promote, maintain, or restore the physical and physiological well-being of an individual.Awareness: The act of "taking account" of an object or state of affairs. It does not imply assessment of, nor attention to the qualities or nature of the object.Perceptual Disorders: Cognitive disorders characterized by an impaired ability to perceive the nature of objects or concepts through use of the sense organs. These include spatial neglect syndromes, where an individual does not attend to visual, auditory, or sensory stimuli presented from one side of the body.Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy: A syndrome characterized by severe burning pain in an extremity accompanied by sudomotor, vasomotor, and trophic changes in bone without an associated specific nerve injury. This condition is most often precipitated by trauma to soft tissue or nerve complexes. The skin over the affected region is usually erythematous and demonstrates hypersensitivity to tactile stimuli and erythema. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1360; Pain 1995 Oct;63(1):127-33)Migraine with Aura: A subtype of migraine disorder, characterized by recurrent attacks of reversible neurological symptoms (aura) that precede or accompany the headache. Aura may include a combination of sensory disturbances, such as blurred VISION; HALLUCINATIONS; VERTIGO; NUMBNESS; and difficulty in concentrating and speaking. Aura is usually followed by features of the COMMON MIGRAINE, such as PHOTOPHOBIA; PHONOPHOBIA; and NAUSEA. (International Classification of Headache Disorders, 2nd ed. Cephalalgia 2004: suppl 1)Speech Therapy: Treatment for individuals with speech defects and disorders that involves counseling and use of various exercises and aids to help the development of new speech habits.Movement: The act, process, or result of passing from one place or position to another. It differs from LOCOMOTION in that locomotion is restricted to the passing of the whole body from one place to another, while movement encompasses both locomotion but also a change of the position of the whole body or any of its parts. Movement may be used with reference to humans, vertebrate and invertebrate animals, and microorganisms. Differentiate also from MOTOR ACTIVITY, movement associated with behavior.

Functional consequences of mutations in the human alpha1A calcium channel subunit linked to familial hemiplegic migraine. (1/797)

Mutations in alpha1A, the pore-forming subunit of P/Q-type calcium channels, are linked to several human diseases, including familial hemiplegic migraine (FHM). We introduced the four missense mutations linked to FHM into human alpha1A-2 subunits and investigated their functional consequences after expression in human embryonic kidney 293 cells. By combining single-channel and whole-cell patch-clamp recordings, we show that all four mutations affect both the biophysical properties and the density of functional channels. Mutation R192Q in the S4 segment of domain I increased the density of functional P/Q-type channels and their open probability. Mutation T666M in the pore loop of domain II decreased both the density of functional channels and their unitary conductance (from 20 to 11 pS). Mutations V714A and I1815L in the S6 segments of domains II and IV shifted the voltage range of activation toward more negative voltages, increased both the open probability and the rate of recovery from inactivation, and decreased the density of functional channels. Mutation V714A decreased the single-channel conductance to 16 pS. Strikingly, the reduction in single-channel conductance induced by mutations T666M and V714A was not observed in some patches or periods of activity, suggesting that the abnormal channel may switch on and off, perhaps depending on some unknown factor. Our data show that the FHM mutations can lead to both gain- and loss-of-function of human P/Q-type calcium channels.  (+info)

A clinical guide to assess the role of lower limb extensor overactivity in hemiplegic gait disorders. (2/797)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to assess the role of knee and ankle extensor overactivity in the hemiplegic gait observed in stroke victims and to propose a clinical guide for selecting patients before treatment of a supposed disabling spasticity. METHODS: A standardized physical examination procedure was performed in 135 consecutive stroke patients. All patients were able to walk without human assistance. The period after stroke ranged from 3 to 24 months (mean, 11.5+/-7.25 months). Spasticity was evaluated with the stroke victim in sitting position and during walking. Overactivity of the quadriceps was considered disabling when inducing inability to flex the knee during the swing phase despite adequate control of knee flexion in sitting and standing positions; overactivity of the triceps surae was considered to be disabling when heel strike was not possible despite good control of the ankle flexion in sitting position; triceps retraction was also considered. RESULTS: Disabling overactivity was observed in 56 (41.5%) patients: 11 times for the quadriceps femoris, 21 times for the triceps surae, and 21 times for both muscles. It was considered to be the main disorder impairing gait among only 16 (12%) patients: 9 for the quadriceps alone, 3 for the triceps alone, and 4 for both. Sitting spasticity of the lower limb was not predictive of disabling overactivity during walking. CONCLUSIONS: Extensor muscle overactivity is one of the components of gait disorders in stroke patients. The difficulty in assessing spasticity and its real causal effect in gait disturbances are discussed. A clinical guide is proposed.  (+info)

Activation of selected trunk muscles during symmetric functional activities in poststroke hemiparetic and hemiplegic patients. (3/797)

OBJECTIVE: To compare the EMG activity between the recti abdominii muscles and between the lumbar erector spinae muscles in hemiparetic and hemiplegic patients during functional symmetric trunk movements and to compare patients' EMG activity profiles with those of healthy controls. METHODS: EMG activity from the selected muscles was recorded during three symmetric and time controlled trunk exercises. Data analysis was based on values of cross correlations and of ratios between EMG activity of the bilateral corresponding muscles. RESULTS: In all groups, the highest cross correlations were obtained for both muscles when the muscles acted as prime movers. For the recti abdominii muscles, these values in the patients were comparable with those of the healthy subjects, whereas for the extensor muscles, the highest synchronous activity was displayed in healthy subjects and the lowest in hemiplegic patients. Laterality differences in the amount of EMG activity of the recti abdominii muscles were not biased towards one side. For the extensor muscles, in the controls, the activation levels were higher in the left erector spinae muscle than in the right one in two of the three exercises. Similarly, in the extensor muscles of the hemiparetic patients, activity on the paretic side was higher than on the non-paretic side in two exercises. CONCLUSIONS: In patients with a supratentorial poststroke hemiparesis or hemiplegia, bilateral corresponding axial trunk muscles co-contract during symmetric trunk activities. Synchronous activation is at its highest level during voluntary dynamic tasks and is greater in the recti abdominii than in the erector spinae muscles. For both muscles, EMG activation levels on the paretic side were not lower than on the non-paretic side. Thus, the assertion that the muscles on the paretic side are activated to a lesser extent than their counterparts on the non-paretic side during symmetric trunk movements was not confirmed.  (+info)

Global aphasia without hemiparesis: language profiles and lesion distribution. (4/797)

OBJECTIVES: Global aphasia without hemiparesis (GAWH) is an uncommon stroke syndrome involving receptive and expressive language impairment, without the hemiparesis typically manifested by patients with global aphasia after large left perisylvian lesions. A few cases of GAWH have been reported with conflicting conclusions regarding pathogenesis, lesion localisation, and recovery. The current study was conducted to attempt to clarify these issues. METHODS: Ten cases of GAWH were prospectively studied with language profiles and lesion analysis; five patients had multiple lesions, four patients had a single lesion, and one had a subarachnoid haemorrhage. Eight patients met criteria for cardioembolic ischaemic stroke. RESULTS: Cluster analysis based on acute language profiles disclosed three subtypes of patients with GAWH; these clusters persisted on follow up language assessment. Each cluster evolved into a different aphasia subtype: persistent GAWH, Wernicke's aphasia, or transcortical motor aphasia (TCM). Composite lesion analysis showed that persistent GAWH was related to lesioning of the left superior temporal gyrus. Patients with acute GAWH who evolved into TCM type aphasia had common lesioning of the left inferior frontal gyrus and adjacent subcortical white matter. Patients with acute GAWH who evolved into Wernicke's type aphasia were characterised by lesioning of the left precentral and postcentral gyri. Recovery of language was poor in all but one patient. CONCLUSIONS: Although patients with acute GAWH are similar on neurological examination, they are heterogeneous with respect to early aphasia profile, language recovery, and lesion profile.  (+info)

Sparing effect of hemiplegia on tophaceous gout. (5/797)

The sparing effect of hemiplegia on the development of tophaceous gout is described. The useless upper limb had no tophaceous deposits and the partially paralysed lower limb had only limited urate deposits. Disuse was presumably the major contributor to the limited deposition of urates on the paralysed side.  (+info)

Surgical treatment of internal carotid artery anterior wall aneurysm with extravasation during angiography--case report. (6/797)

A 54-year-old female presented subarachnoid hemorrhage from an aneurysm arising from the anterior (dorsal) wall of the internal carotid artery (ICA). During four-vessel angiography, an extravasated saccular pooling of contrast medium emerged in the suprasellar area unrelated to any arterial branch. The saccular pooling was visualized in the arterial phase and cleared in the venophase during every contrast medium injection. We suspected that the extravasated pooling was surrounded by hard clot but communicated with the artery. Direct surgery was performed but major premature bleeding occurred during the microsurgical procedure. After temporary clipping, an opening of the anterior (dorsal) wall of the ICA was found without apparent aneurysm wall. The vessel wall was sutured with nylon thread. The total occlusion time of the ICA was about 50 minutes. Follow-up angiography demonstrated good patency of the ICA. About 2 years after the operation, the patient was able to walk with a stick and to communicate freely through speech, although left hemiparesis and left homonymous hemianopsia persisted. The outcome suggests our treatment strategy was not optimal, but suture of the ICA wall is one of the therapeutic choices when premature rupture occurs in the operation.  (+info)

Impaired modulation of quadriceps tendon jerk reflex during spastic gait: differences between spinal and cerebral lesions. (7/797)

In healthy subjects, functionally appropriate modulation of short latency leg muscle reflexes occurs during gait. This modulation has been ascribed, in part, to changes in presynaptic inhibition of Ia afferents. The changes in modulation of quadriceps tendon jerk reflexes during gait of healthy subjects were compared with those of hemi- or paraparetic spastic patients. The spasticity was due to unilateral cerebral infarction or traumatic spinal cord injury, respectively. The modulation of the quadriceps femoris tendon jerk reflex at 16 phases of the step cycle was studied. The reflex responses obtained during treadmill walking were compared with control values obtained during gait-mimicking standing postures with corresponding levels of voluntary muscle contraction and knee angles. In healthy subjects the size of the reflexes was profoundly modulated and was generally depressed throughout the step cycle. In patients with spinal lesion the reflex depression during gait was almost removed and was associated with weak or no modulation during the step cycle. In patients with cerebral lesion there was less depression of the reflex size associated with a reduced reflex modulation on the affected side compared with healthy subjects. On the 'unaffected' side of these patients reflex modulation was similar to that of healthy subjects, but the reflex size during gait was not significantly different from standing control values. These observations suggest that the mechanisms responsible for the depression of reflex size and the modulation normally seen during gait in healthy subjects are impaired to different extents in spasticity of spinal or cerebral origin, possibly due to the unilateral preservation of fibre tracts in hemiparesis.  (+info)

Aphasic disorder in patients with closed head injury. (8/797)

Quantitative assessment of 50 patients with closed head injury disclosed that anomic errors and word finding difficulty were prominent sequelae as nearly half of the series had defective scores on tests of naming and/or word association. Aphasic disturbance was associated with severity of brain injury as reflected by prolonged coma and injury of the brain stem.  (+info)

A 49-year-old man with meningeal cysticercosis presented with a pure motor hemiparesis. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging showed a capsular infarction and a suprasellar cyst with surrounding arachnoiditis.

This is the first reported case of pure motor hemiparesis due to a parasitic disease of the central nervous system. ...
The case is presented of a 60 years old man who developed sudden right hemiplegia without other accompanying neurological signs and later a spastic hemiparesis. Neuropathological studies indicated an ischaemic lesion of the left medullary pyramid which was accompanied by hypertrophy of the left inferior olivary nucleus. An additional lesion, demyelination of the right gracile tract, is poorly explained. This case represents the second reported instance of pure motor hemiplegia due to a circumscribed lesion in the medullary pyramid and possibly an unique instance of olivary hypertrophy without obvious damage to the central tegmental tract, ipsilateral superior cerebellar peduncle, or contralateral dentate nucleus. The olivary hypertrophy is thought to have arisen from local damage to the termination of the central tegmental fibres at the left inferior olivary nucleus. The question of the development of spasticity in a pure pyramidal tract lesion is discussed.. ...
Subjects studied were moderately impaired hemiparetic stroke patients who were medically stable and well into the long-term recovery phase after stroke. The baseline aerobic capacity of subjects was less than that observed in otherwise normal hypertensive subjects of similar ages.13 This finding in hemiparetic patients is likely related to low endurance, the reduction in number of motor units capable of being recruited during dynamic exercise,14 and the reduced oxidative capacity of paretic muscle.15 The maximal heart rate responses were also influenced by the presence of β-adrenergic receptor antagonists in some subjects. However, these subjects average maximal workload (61.6 W) and maximal heart rate (134.1 beats per minute [bpm]) are similar to the maximal workload and heart rate during aerobic testing reported in the three previous investigations of responses to intense exercise in hemiparetic patients. King et al,5 in a study of 70 hemiparetic stroke patients who used a Schwinn Air-Dyne ...
I would be very interested in learning anything more about my hemiplegia - particularly any suggestions from the medical profession. Alternatively, I would like to hear from people who are in a similar position to myself. In September, 1984 and at the age of 17, I had a car accident in which I suffered a right hemiplegia. All details of my resultant disabilities and an account since the accident are listed below. I have limited functional movement of my right shoulder, arm and elbow, since they are quite spastic. My hand has the ability to grasp, while my arm has some distinct uses that involve acting on resistive forces. Examples being, lifting weights, chin-ups, push-ups, holding and carrying bulky objects, etc. For anything involving fine coordinated movements, they are of little functional use. My leg has also been partially affected. While these exercises do maintain my right sides mobility, I do not feel they are helping in the long term. It is also interesting to note that my right side ...

Hemiplegia is not a disease entity but a symptom representing functional deficit. There are numerous diseases which may result in hemiplegia, but it is usually caused by cerebrovascular accident. Hemiplegia resulting from cerebrovascular accident usually occurs in adult life when clients have many important familial and social responsibilities. Hemiplegia imposes extrastressors upon them and results in impairment in the physical function necessary for activities of daily living. Further hemiplegic patients experience psychological stress such as anxiety, frustration, and depression. When severe, these psychological stressors will have a great influence upon recovery. This study was done for the purpose of contributing to the planning of stressor reducing nursing strategies by identifying the stressors experienced by hemiplegic patients, which stressor has the greatest influence, and the relation between stressors and depression, on the basis of the stressor factors in Neumans Health-Care ...
Alternating hemiplegia is a form of hemiplegia that has an ipsilateral and contralateral presentation in different parts of the body. The disorder is characterized by recurrent episodes of paralysis on one side of the body. There are multiple forms of alternating hemiplegia, Webers syndrome, middle alternating hemiplegia, and inferior alternating hemiplegia. This type of syndrome can result from a unilateral lesion in the brainstem affecting both upper motor neurons and lower motor neurons. The muscles that would receive signals from these damaged upper motor neurons result in spastic paralysis. With a lesion in the brainstem, this affects the majority of limb and trunk muscles on the contralateral side due to the upper motor neurons decussation after the brainstem. The cranial nerves and cranial nerve nuclei are also located in the brainstem making them susceptible to damage from a brainstem lesion. Cranial nerves III (Oculomotor), VI (Abducens), and XII (Hypoglossal) are most often associated ...

Background The theoretical role of muscle coactivation is to stiffen joints. The aim of this study was to assess the relationship between muscle coactivation and joint excursions during gait in children with and without hemiplegic cerebral palsy.. Methods Twelve children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy and twelve typically developing children underwent gait analysis at three different gait speeds. Sagittal hip, knee, and ankle kinematics were divided into their main components corresponding to joint excursions. A coactivation index was calculated for each excursion from the electromyographic envelopes of the rectus femoris/semitendinosus, vastus medialis/semitendinosus, or tibialis anterior/soleus muscles. Mixed linear analyses of covariance modeled joint excursions as a function of the coactivation index and limb.. Findings In typically developing children, increased coactivation was associated with reduced joint excursion for 8 of the 14 linear models (hip flexion, knee loading, knee extension ...
Unfortunately, even if the cause of hemiplegia is known, there is no cure for it. Once brain injury has occurred, the only available treatments are to ease the symptoms and improve the quality of life. Drugs are used to treat painful mucle spasms. Drugs like Librium or Valium are frequently administered to help break up muscle spasms and also help to calm the ill person. Drugs are also given to individuals whom have recurrent seizures. [9]. Surgery has a very small role in the treatment of hemiplegia. Some individuals may develop joint contractures and acquire severe deformities of the joints. In such cases the surgeon may cut the ligaments and relieve joint contractures. Individuals whom are unable to swallow may have a tube inserted into the stomach by the surgeon. This allows food to be given directly into the stomach. The food is blended or pureed and instilled at low rates. Prosthetics. The majority of individuals with hemiplegia will benefit from some type of prosthetic device. There are ...
... refers to a state in which there is a complete or near-complete loss of movement on one entire side of the body. Hemiplegia is caused by damage to the brain in regions that control body movements, and it is similar but more severe than hemiparesis. The side of the body that is paralyzed is opposite to the damaged side of the brain. Hemiplegia may be present at birth or may develop later in life from stroke or damage to the brain from injury, infection, or tumors. The major symptoms of hemiplegia include stiffness, weakness, or lack of control on either the left or right side of the body. Other early symptoms include the use of only one hand, keeping one hand in a fist, difficulty walking and balancing, and difficulty performing actions requiring fine motor skills, such as using scissors or writing. In general, affected children may experience delayed milestones compared to their peers and are more likely to develop scoliosis, or curvature of the spine, as they grow. Once present, ...

In a series of 57 hemiplegic patients who subsequently fractured their hips, it was found that hip fracture occurred significantly more often on the hemiplegic side. Hip fracture was equally common in right- and left-sided hemiplegia, and often occurred within one year of the stroke. Two factors seem to be important in the genesis of hip fractures in hemiplegic patients: the tendency of stroke patients to fall to the affected side as a result of impaired locomotor function, and the development of disuse osteoporosis in the hemiplegic limb.. ...
In a variety of settings, the OT works with children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy (CP). Hemiplegic CP often affects sensation, perception, cognition, communication, and motor movements. These skills impact participation in home, school, community life, and activities of daily living (ADLs) such as grooming, dressing, and feeding. The OT has the responsibility to decide the most effective way to allocate treatment. Constraint induced movement therapy has been shown to improve developmental disuse in the effected upper extremity. As there are many variations of this intervention, the OT wants to know what is the most effective type, frequency, duration, and intensity of constraint induced treatment.

A novel model of hemiplegia in young and aged rats is described. Osmotic minipumps were used to deliver a chronic (7 days), localized application of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) (100 micrograms/microliter/h), to the somatomotor cortex of unrestrained rats. This resulted in an easily quantifiable, contralateral and reversible motor syndrome in both young and aged animals. In the young group, the motor deficit cleared over 5-day period, while in the aged animals it persisted for at least a 2-week period. Control animals treated with saline-filled minipumps did not develop a long-lasting motor deficit. The GABA-induced facilitation of hemiplegia due to small motor cortex lesions and the age effects on behavioral recovery of function are discussed. Cortical inhibitory mechanisms may play a role in debilitating syndromes such as stroke or post-epileptic paralysis.. ...

A patient developed weakness of the right leg and homolateral ataxia of the arm, caused by a subcortical infarct in the area supplied by the anterior cerebral artery in the left paracentral region, demonstrated by CT and MRI. Cerebral blood flow studied by technetium-labelled hexamethyl-propylene-amine oxime using single photon emission computed tomography showed decreased blood flow in the left lateral frontal cortex and in the right cerebellar hemisphere ("crossed cerebral-cerebellar diaschisis"). The homolateral ataxia of the arm may be caused by decreased function of the right cerebellar hemisphere, because of a lesion of the corticopontine-cerebellar tracts, whereas crural hemiparesis is caused by a lesion of the upper part of the corona radiata.. ...
In the beginning of my journey of accepting my daughters diagnosis of hemiplegic cerebral palsy, I had a very difficult time seeing all the things she was capable of doing. I spent my days focused on the cants, not the cans. It was hard on me because I claimed to be positive and encouraging on the outside, but on the inside, I was battling negative thoughts about her future. When she was very young, I spent my workdays supporting parents of children with disabilities and gave all of my positive energy to them, and was tapped out when I got home.. Because of her chronic muscle tone issues, I had a very hard time being around other children that had great balance and gross motor skills. When Olivia was around 2 years old and not yet walking, I remember vividly going to see my nieces dance recital. I spent the entire performance secretly crying because I felt bad that Olivia would probably never be able to participate in a dance class. I realize now that I was giving up on her before she even ...
Anosognosia for hemiplegia (AHP) is a lack of awareness about paralysis following stroke. Recent explanations use a forward model of movement to suggest that AHP patients fail to register discrepancies between internally- and externally-generated sensory information. We predicted that this failure would impair the ability to recall from memory whether information is internally- or externally-generated (i.e., reality monitor). Two experiments examined this prediction. Experiment 1 demonstrated that AHP patients exhibit a reality monitoring deficit for non-motor information (i.e., perceived vs. imagined drawings), whilst hemiplegic controls without anosognosia (nonAHP) perform like age-matched healthy volunteers (HVs). Experiment 2 explored if this deficit occurs when AHP patients discriminate performed, imagined, or observed movement. Results showed impaired reality monitoring for movements in AHP and nonAHP patients relative to HVs. Findings suggest that reality monitoring processes not ...
Case Presentation: The patient was a 27 year-old man who was referred to the clinic following a few days of fever and cold with consciousness deficit and right hemiplegia. Based on the analysis of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and diagnosis of pneumococcal meningitis, he received suitable antibiotic treatment. Despite complete return of consciousness, good general condition, and negative smear and culture of CSF, fever continued and no considerable improvement was observed in the hemiplegia. Therefore, brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was performed and according to the findings, treatment was started with the diagnosis of acute disseminated encephalomyelitis. Treatment with prednisolone at first obviated the fever and after a month brought about a complete hemiplegia cure. Following the status of the patient after three months, his MRI clearly showed considerable reduction in lesions. ...

Elbow extension was restored in eight arms via the deltoid and in eight arms via the biceps. At 24 months follow-up, seven of the eight biceps transfers produced antigravity strength (grade 3 or better). In contrast, only one arm with the deltoid transfer was able to extend against gravity. There was a significant but subclinical loss of elbow flexion torque following both transfers. Three months after surgery, the deltoid group showed a 51% loss of elbow flexion torque and the biceps group a 52% loss of elbow flexion torque.

We investigated the participation of catecholaminergic mechanisms in the functional recovery from motor cortex lesions in young (9 months) and aged (26 months) rats. The animals were studied during the recovery period from an hemiplegic syndrome secondary to small motor cortex lesions potentiated by the localized, chronic (7 days) infusion of GABA into the lesion site. Acute administration of haloperidol (0.1 mg/kg IP) to these recovered animals induced a re-emergence of the contralateral motor syndrome in both groups. In the young group, the haloperidol-induced hemiplegia lasted one day whereas in the aged animals the deficit was significantly prolonged lasting three days. Apomorphine administration (0.5 mg/kg IP) prior to or immediately after haloperidol injection failed to prevent or reverse the reappearance of the motor deficit. Adult animals recovered from motor cortex aspirations performed 7 to 12 months prior were refractory to haloperidol effects. Amphetamine administration to young rats ...

We finally ginned up the courage, after last summers setback, to return to writing our (newly expanded) insiders view of Hemiplegia, the condition which affects my left side. As weve made our way back from that warm season disappointment, at first timidly, despite the admonitions of our rehab therapist Heidi Engel, and, lately, more aggressively, we feel the confidence return that we exhibited when we made our way to southern Burgundy last May, and daily walked the steep ridge upon which the village of Ameugny is situated.. We realize that, while, indeed our body suffered from the brain swelling episode, the real problem has been a loss of confidence. There are lots of daily actions - able-bodied me never even thought about them - that are daunting to the hemiplegic. Stepping off curbs is one - it took 18 months of carefully planned and heavily repeated rehab exercises before I could confidently, and reliably, step off a curb without risking a fall.. In any case, we returned two weeks ago to ...

CLINICAL HISTORY:. An 80-year-old man was transferred to our institution with worsening heart failure. His past medical history was significant for Type-2 diabetes mellitus, hypertension, coronary artery disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, emphysema, chronic renal insufficiency and recurrent exacerbations of congestive heart failure. In addition, approximately 5 weeks prior to this admission, he presented at another institution with acute onset of left hemiplegia. Radiographic imaging at the time revealed a right thalamic lesion interpreted to represent acute ischemic changes. He received thrombolytic therapy but showed little improvement in neurological symptoms. He was transferred to a rehabilitation program but there also showed no improvement in neurological symptoms. While in rehabilitation, recurrent heart failure required hospitalization and transfer to this institution. His cardiopulmonary function improved with treatment, but his neurologic status remained unchanged until ...

I no longer use the word because what benefits it has are negated by the hurt it causes. Simple as that. And the NYT, the medical profession and all should do the same. The word is often used because it is a quick concise way of describing someone. A lot of the other descriptions leave doubt and are not understood. Globally challenged, intellectually disabled, congitively delayed, will get a huh from a lot of people. The other word leaves no doubt. That someone has CP or learning disabilities or a whole host of any other issues still does not address the issue that the person has very low functioning executive decision skills ...
Hemiplegic shoulder pain is common in stroke survivors, developing in up to 54% of patients. The underlying mechanisms include soft tissue lesions, impaired motor function and central nervous system-related phenomena. Hemiplegic shoulder pain has many underlying causes and is challenging to manage, requiring a team approach, including physicians, therapists and caregivers. The management strategy must target the underlying causes. Preventative measures, such as positioning and handling, can reduce the risk of developing hemiplegic shoulder pain. We have reviewed the literature on hemiplegic shoulder pain, and used this to categorise the underlying mechanisms, and to explore the best management strategies.. ...

Overall, there are only small differences between constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT) and bimanual training (BIM) in improving upper limb activity outcomes for children with congenital hemiplegia, say researchers in an article published in Developmental Medicine and Child Neurology. Results generally reflect specificity of practice, they add, with CIMT improving unimanual capacity and BIM improving bimanual performance. For this study, researchers randomly allocated 63 children (mean age 10.2, SD 2.7, range 5-16 y; 33 boys, 30 girls), 16 in Manual Ability Classification System level I, 46 level II, and 1 level III, and 16 in Gross Motor Function Classification level I, 47 level II to either CIMT or BIM group day camps (60 hours over 10 days).

I do of course think that there are other reasons as to why mental illness seem to be more prevalent amongst the milder forms of cerebral palsy like hemiplegia. Its quite difficult to word this and get the tone right. In my experience, Ive always been compared to able-bodied people. I went to mainstream school, Ive done very well academically. Sometimes Ive struggled to come to terms with having a disabled identity and the fact I do have limitations. Partly because, throughout my childhood I was like every other child. Ok, some things were difficult/impossible due to my hemiplegia but for the large part I was normal. Its only as an adult, that I realised it was a struggle to keep up if you like. I hate to admit it, but my independence does have a limit. Ill always need help with certain things like tying shoe laces, with meal preparation, domestic chores, I could go on. Ive realised its going to be tough out there in the workplace for a graduate, let alone one with a disability. Due to ...
Ong HT, Tong LZ, Tan JX, Lin J, Burdet E, Teo CL, Ge SSet al., 2016, Pediatric rehabilitation of upper limb function using novel robotic device reachMAN2, Pages: 1-7 Studies of robotic therapy for adults with physical disabilities due to stroke have been an active field of research for the last two decades and the results suggest that stroke patients can benefit from this kind of therapy. Due to the success of robot-assisted rehabilitation in adults, it is reasonable to believe that this approach may be well suited to the needs of children with physical disabilities. This paper presents the results of a preliminary study of three children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy, using the reachMAN2, a novel robotic device for the pediatric rehabilitation of upper limb function. The device has two degrees-of-freedom to train pinching, forearm supination/pronation and wrist flexion/ extension movements.

BACKGROUND: Flexor carpi ulnaris muscle tenotomy and transfer to the extensor side of the wrist are common procedures used to improve wrist position and dexterity in patients with cerebral palsy. Our aim was to determine whether this muscle still influences wrist torque even after tenotomy of its distal tendon. METHODS: Intra-operatively, we determined in vivo maximal wrist torque in hemiplegic cerebral palsy patients (n=15, mean age 17 years) in three conditions: 1) with the arm and the muscle intact; 2) after tenotomy of the flexor carpi ulnaris just proximal to the pisiform bone, with complete release from its insertion; and 3) after careful dissection of the belly of the muscle from its fascial surroundings up until approximately halfway its length ...

This review presents the mechanistic underpinnings of corticospinal tract (CST) development, derived from animal models, and applies what has been learned to inform neural activity-based strategies for CST repair. We first discuss that, in normal development, early bilateral CST projections are latter refined into a dense crossed CST projection, with maintenance of sparse ipsilateral projections. Using a novel mouse genetic model, we show that promoting the ipsilateral CST projection produces mirror movements, common in hemiplegic cerebral palsy (CP), suggesting that ipsilateral CST projections become maladaptive when they become abnormally dense and strong. We next discuss how animal studies support a developmental
Relatively little has been discovered about the cause of the condition since its initial identification. Recent studies from the empirical data are prone to consider anosognosia a multi-componential syndrome or multi-faceted phenomenon. That is it can be manifested by failure to be aware of a number of specific deficits, including motor (hemiplegia), sensory (hemianaesthesia, hemianopia), spatial (unilateral neglect), memory (dementia), and language (receptive aphasia) due to impairment of anatomo-functionally discrete monitoring systems.[2][3]. Anosognosia is relatively common following different causes of brain injury, such as stroke and traumatic brain injury; for example, anosognosia for hemiparesis, (weakness of one side of the body) with onset of acute stroke is estimated at between 10% and 18%.[6] However, it can appear to occur in conjunction with virtually any neurological impairment. It is more frequent in the acute than in the chronic phase and more prominent for assessment in the ...
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): An estimated 30% of chronic stroke patients with motor disabilities of the limbs are plegic in the hand or the foot - that is, they cannot move the hand or foot. While some plegic stroke patients have completely paralyzed muscles, without the ability to activate even minimally the plegic muscles ( profound plegia ), other plegic stroke patients are capable of producing volitional muscle activation, but are not strong enough to make the joint move ( pseudo plegia ). The long-term objective of this study is to restore functional movement to stroke patients with profoundly plegic muscles and with pseudo plegic muscles. Stroke is the leading cause of disability in the U.S., amounting to 50 billion in health care costs annually. Each year, about 700,000 US citizens suffer stroke, and those who survive without full recovery join a growing population of chronically disabled individuals currently totaling 5.8 million. Any therapeutic intervention that effectively ...

Autosomal dominant porencephaly type I is a rare type of porencephaly that causes cysts to grow on the brain and damage to small blood vessels, which can lead to cognitive impairment, migraines, seizures, and hemiplegia or hemiparesis. Different people are affected very differently by this disease. The main manifestation is fluid-filled cysts that grow on the brain and can cause damage that varies depending on their location and severity. Symptoms may manifest early in infancy, or may manifest as late as adulthood. Symptoms associated with autosomal dominant porencephaly type I include migraines, hemiplegia or hemiparesis, seizures, cognitive impairment, strokes, dystonia, speech disorders, involuntary muscle spasms, visual field defects, and hydrocephalus. Autosomal dominant porencephaly type I is caused by mutations in a gene called COL4A1, located at 13q34 (band 34 on the long arm of chromosome 13). These mutations are inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern. COL4A1 codes for a form of ...
Hello! Hey there! My daughter has MCADD too! I swear that I searched for parent blogs with MCADD after my Hannah was born 2 1/2 years ago and I found nothing - now I just found 3 and I am delighted. Hannah is not one of the luckiest of MCADD kids - she had an actual metabolic crisis at just three days of age and so had a stroke and now has right hemiplegia, but CP doesnt hold her back much, she is a therapy success story in every way. And if anyone who has found you has an older child I am very interested in connecting to them too - Id love to find a parent who could tell me how to beat that whole refusing to eat game! You can read about Hannah at http://gas-food-lodging.blogspot.com/ Wed love to keep in touch.. ReplyDelete ...
Figure 7: The Liber Continens edited in Venice in 1529, Ottaviano Scoto Press. (Source).. Rhazes commented that the lesion causing hemiplegia needs to affect the hemibrain (parenchyma) and is not limited to the ventricle. Therefore, the corresponding spinal cord and nerves originating from this hemibrain were also damaged. He also stated that when there is a stroke with hemiplegia and preservation of facial movement, the above explanation by Galen is contradicted. He rejected Galens explanation of hemiplegia without facial involvement in a stroke being caused by a longitudinal lesion affecting the whole hemispinal cord or its corresponding roots. He also stated that a compressive lesion of the hemispinal cord that is so severe as to cause paralysis is unlikely to spare the contralateral side. Rhazes wrote an entire manuscript raising doubts about some of Galens conclusions and criticizing Galen not only as a medical scientist but also as a logician (Kitab al-shukuk ala Galinus [Doubts About ...

You may also hear terms such as hemiplegia or diplegia. These refer to the parts of the body affected by cerebral palsy..

Spastic hemiplegia and cerebral palsy often lead to typical deformities of the upper extremity. Muscle- and joint-contractures may be painful and aesthetically unappealing and may interfere with function and hygiene. Within the first weeks after the cerebral incidence the vital threat is dominating and the exact amount of neurologic impairment is not assessable. During this period, conservative treatment should counteract the development of contractures. After spontaneous neurologic recovery, surgical options should be taken into account. When choosing surgical procedures, factors as volitional motor control, sensibility and cognition must be taken into account besides the morphologic changes. This is best achieved in a multidisciplinary setting of neurologists, rehabilitation specialists, physiotherapists and surgeons. ...

Racehorses with laryngeal hemiplegia make an unusual whistling noise when they breathe, caused by the narrower airway. An endoscope inserted into the upper respiratory tract will be able to identify the condition and this examination is commonly known as the wind test. Portable endoscopes are often used at horse sales/purchases for this reason so that the buyer can be sure that their horse is in good health and will be a sound investment. Trying to race a horse that suffers from laryngeal hemiplegia would be irresponsible as it could prove to be extremely dangerous to their health as they struggle for adequate breath.. ...

Clinical Findings: There is usually a history of loss of consciousness, followed by a lucid interval. Level of consciousness decreases as the hematoma expands. The hematoma may take a few hours to strip the dura away from the skull. As it expands, confusion, somnolence, and vomiting may develop. Usually there are no localizing findings until significant midline shift has occurred. At that point, a fixed dilated pupil is seen (almost always on the side of the impact), with a contralateral hemiparesis. Both pupils may become fixed and dilated as uncal herniation progresses ...

Epidemiological studies have shown that sporadic cases occur with approximately the same prevalence as familial cases.. The attacks in 1.2.3.2 Sporadic hemiplegic migraine have the same clinical characteristics as those in 1.2.3.1 Familial hemiplegic migraine. Some apparently sporadic cases have known FHM mutations, and in some a first- or second-degree relative later develops hemiplegic migraine, thus completing fulfilment of the criteria for 1.2.3.1 Familial hemiplegic migraine and requiring a change of diagnosis.. Sporadic cases usually require neuroimaging and other tests to rule out other causes. A lumbar puncture may be necessary to rule out 7.8 Syndrome of transient headache and neurological deficits with cerebrospinal fluid lymphocytosis (HaNDL).. ...
The objective of this study is to report a new manifestation of acute stroke following antifibrinolytic agent administration in young women carrying heterozygosity for methylene-tetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) C677T. The study included two young women who developed an acute ischaemic stroke following three days of tranexamic acid administration for bleeding gynaecological disorders. Case 1, a 44-year-old woman, presented left hemiplegia, mild dysarthria and anosognosia. Brain magnetic resonance imaging showed right ischaemic fronto-temporal lesion due to subocclusion of the right middle cerebral artery. Case 2, a 49-year-old woman, developed aphasia and right hemiplegia. Neuroimaging showed left capsular and periventricular infarcts due to near occlusion of the left internal carotid artery. Thrombophilia screening, coagulation parameters, homocysteine testing, 12-lead electrocardiography, and transthoracic and transoesophageal echocardiography were unremarkable. Genetic assay showed that both ...

ISSN 2078-5135.. BACKGROUND: A positive Hutchinsons sign indicates an increased risk of ocular involvement in herpes zoster ophthalmicus (HZO). We examined the sensitivity of Hutchinsons sign as an indicator of ocular involvement in a consecutive series of patients presenting with HZO. METHODS: We conducted a descriptive observational prospective study of patients ,18 years old presenting with HZO and consenting to pre- and post-test counselling and HIV and CD4 testing. A full ophthalmological examination focused on the extent of ocular involvement, and the presence of Hutchinsons sign was confirmed by two clinicians. RESULTS: Thirty-three patients were enrolled; 29 were HIV positive, of whom 18 (62%) had not been diagnosed with HIV prior to enrolment. Of the 29 HIV-positive patients, 21 (72%) were ...

A 56-year-old man presented to the emergency department after a highway-speed, single-vehicle motor vehicle accident. Physical examination revealed no evidence of head trauma but was notable for a Glasgow Coma Scale score of 6, with the patient exhibiting a withdrawal response to pain on his left side. Computed tomography findings included a hyperdense middle cerebral artery sign (HMCAS) on the left side (image A). A magnetic resonance (MR) angiogram showed occlusion of the left middle cerebral artery, and an MR image revealed an infarct (image B). Although the patients mental status improved, he was discharged to inpatient rehabilitation 9 days later because of hemiplegia on his left side. ...
Varicella zoster virus (VZV) causes two distinct viral syndromes. VZV infection is a common and usually benign childhood infection, manifesting as chickenpox. Herpes zoster ophthalmicus (HZO) is a potentially devastating visual disease with variable presentation caused by the re-activation of a latent infection of the trigeminal ganglion by the VZV.. The most common causes of re-activation of VZV are decreased cell-mediated immunity related to age, malignancies, chemo- or radiotherapy, HIV infection, and the use of immunosuppressive drugs.1 The characteristic vesicular cutaneous involvement in the area supplied by the ophthalmic division of the trigeminal nerve with respect to the horizontal midline is usually the first clinical sign and is often preceded by pain in this area caused by viral replication in the ganglion.. Hutchinsons sign results from the involvement of the skin and/or nasal mucosa of the tip of the nose on the ipsilateral side of the HZO infection. This involvement of the ...
