Does a combination treatment of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation and occupational therapy improve upper limb muscle paralysis equally in patients with chronic stroke caused by cerebral hemorrhage and infarction?: A retrospective cohort study.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2021 Jun;100(24):e26339

Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, The Jikei University School of Medicine, Tokyo.

Abstract: The clinical presentation of stroke is usually more severe in patients with intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) than in those with cerebral infarction (CI); recovery of stroke-related muscle paralysis is influenced and limited by the type of stroke. To date, many patients have been treated by neurorehabilitation; however, the changes in the recovery of motor paralysis depending on the type of stroke, ICH or CI, have not been established. This study aimed to determine this difference in improvement of upper extremity paralysis using 2-week in-hospital NovEl intervention Using Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation combined with Occupational therapy (NEURO).

Association between aphasia severity and brain network alterations after stroke assessed using the electroencephalographic phase synchrony index.

Sci Rep 2021 Jun 14;11(1):12469. Epub 2021 Jun 14.

Neurorehabilitation Research Institute, Morinomiya Hospital, Osaka, 536-0025, Japan.
