Botulinum toxin A (GSK1358820) is a sterile, purified type A botulinum neurotoxin complex. In Japan, 240 units of botulinum toxin A are approved as a maximum dose per administration for up...
This is a study to confirm the superior efficacy of a single treatment of GSK1358820 over placebo in patients with post-stroke upper limb spasticity of both the wrist and finger flexors us...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of CORETOX® in the treatment of Post stroke upper limb spasticity
Botulinum toxin type A (BoNT-A) is widely used in the clinics to reduce spasticity and improve upper limb function for post-stroke patients. However, there were no studies to compare the e...
Spasticity is a common post-stroke complication, and it results in substantial deterioration in the quality of life of patients. Although potential positive effects of warm-needle moxibustion on spast...
The usual complications after recent stroke such as disabling spasticity and shoulder pain seemed less frequent in recent years. This study examined the frequency of spasticity and shoulder pain in re...
Deficits in regulation of tonic stretch reflex thresholds (TSRTs) after stroke occur in elbow flexors and extensors leading to spasticity in specific joint ranges. Threshold deregulation may also be r...
Upper extremity impairments post-stroke impact participation in valued occupations. Home programs are used to extend the frequency and amount of upper extremity practice for people post-stroke, but no...
Proprioception deficits are common post-stroke and predict poor functional outcome. It is unknown if the presence of proprioception deficits is negatively associated with the motor and functional abil...
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)
Restoration of functions to the maximum degree possible in a person or persons suffering from a stroke.
Syndromes which feature DYSKINESIAS as a cardinal manifestation of the disease process. Included in this category are degenerative, hereditary, post-infectious, medication-induced, post-inflammatory, and post-traumatic conditions.
Stroke caused by lacunar infarction or other small vessel diseases of the brain. It features hemiparesis (see PARESIS), hemisensory, or hemisensory motor loss.
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)
Stroke - Cerebrovascular Disease (CVA)
A stroke is a serious medical condition that occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off. Strokes are a medical emergency and prompt treatment is essential because the sooner a person receives treatment for a stroke, the less damage is ...
