Constrained-Induced Dysarthria Therapy: Case Report.

Ann Rehabil Med 2019 Feb 28;43(1):115-117. Epub 2019 Feb 28.

Stroke Rehabilitation Unit, Inkendaal Rehabilitation Hospital, Vlezenbeek, Belgium.

We describe a 33-year-old woman with chronic bulbar dysarthria after ischemic brainstem stroke who underwent a new form of constraint-induced therapy, namely constraint-induced dysarthria therapy, based on three principles: avoidance of supportive devices, intensive therapy, and gradually augmenting difficulty. After a 2-month intervention, improvement was noted for speech intelligibility, fluency, and intensity. This led to increased communicative participation, including during conversation situations, which has been maintained over a 12-month follow-up. Read More

Limitation of Intraoperative Transcranial Electrical Stimulation-Motor Evoked Potential Monitoring During Brain Tumor Resection Adjacent to the Primary Motor Cortex.

Ann Rehabil Med 2018 Oct 31;42(5):767-772. Epub 2018 Oct 31.

Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, Seoul National University Hospital, Seoul National University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Transcranial electrical stimulation-motor evoked potential (TES-MEP) is a valuable intraoperative monitoring technique during brain tumor surgery. However, TES can stimulate deep subcortical areas located far from the motor cortex. There is a concern about false-negative results from the use of TES-MEP during resection of those tumors adjacent to the primary motor cortex. Read More

Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, Ewha Womans University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Polydeoxyribonucleotide (PDRN) is safe and effective in wound healing, cellular growth, synthesis of extracellular matrix protein, and inflammation reduction via activation of adenosine A2 receptors. We report a 28-year-old male patient treated with PDRN injections for chronic non-healing wound refractory to negative pressure wound therapy, skin graft, or growth factors. Three injections of PDRN were administered at the wound site into the anterior and medial sides of the left stump on the 1st, 4th, and 9th days of hospitalization. Read More
