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 ...
The findings of a preliminary epidemiological survey of Vellore, South India, and adjoining rural areas are presented. The prevalence of "completed strokes" and hemiplegias due to any cause is 56.9 per 100,000. The high incidence of hemiplegia in the young has been pointed out. The need for concerted efforts for a proper evaluation of the incidence of cerebrovascular disease in India seems imperative.. ...
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, ...

Noninvasive rehabilitation strategies for children with unilateral cerebral palsy are routinely used to improve hand motor function, activity, and participation. Nevertheless, the studies exploring their effects on brain structure and function are very scarce. Recently, structural neuroplasticity was demonstrated in adult poststroke patients, in response to neurorehabilitation. Our purpose is to review current evidence on the effects of noninvasive intervention strategies on brain structure or function, in children with unilateral cerebral palsy. The main literature databases were searched up to October 2013. We included studies where the effects of upper limb training were evaluated at neurofunctional and/or neurostructural levels. Only seven studies met our selection criteria; selected studies were case series, six using the intervention of the constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT) and one used virtual reality therapy (VR). CIMT and VR seem to produce measurable neuroplastic changes in
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.. ...

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 ...
To ensure therapist familiarity with scoring the assessments, the 3 therapist participants completed a 3-hr training session facilitated by Rater A. The therapists initially reviewed the manual together and discussed the scoring criteria. After this discussion, the video of a child (data not included in the study) was played, and all 3 therapists independently scored the assessment. They were permitted to stop the tape and rewatch it at any point but were not allowed to discuss their scores. The group then reviewed and compared the scores, and a consensus was reached regarding the score allocated to each item. They were instructed to review the videotape during the consensus process. They were then given a second video to score, which was reviewed and completed in the same manner (data again not included in the study). All 3 raters were in total agreement on the final scores allocated to each item. The training terminated with a discussion of the assessment, and all 3 therapists reported that ...
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.

The Childrens Hemiplegia and Stroke Association (CHASA) exists to help children - children who have survived an early brain injury that results in hemiplegia or hemiparesis (weakness on one side of the body). We also help adults who have been living with a diagnosis of hemiplegia since childhood. We could tell you about all the difficulties and challenges faced by some, but not all, of our survivors - paralysis, epilepsy (seizures), issues with learning, vision, balance, emotions and behavior - but those challenges dont really define these kids. They are fun-loving, amazing children, teens, and adults who just want to be like everyone else and enjoy life and feel successful. They experience daily struggles and find ways to adapt. CHASA exists to help these children become happy, successful, independent adults and along we way, we also help their parents, siblings, and sometimes a few grandparents.. ...

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 ...

Methods Eight right-brain-damaged-patients, 4 hemiplegic (2 with and 2 without AHP) and 4 non-hemiplegic (2 with only perceptual-neglect and 2 with also MN) were evaluated with a bimanual motor battery, before and after examiners reinforcement to use the contralesional limb. The requested bimanual movements could be either symmetric or asymmetric, either intransitive or transitive (with/without objects). We compared the examiners evaluation of patients performance with the patients self-evaluation of their own motor capability (explicit knowledge). We also evaluated the presence/absence of compensatory unimanual strategies that, if present, suggests implicit knowledge of the motor deficit.. ...
