Unilateral alterations in muscle structure1, composition2,3, viscoelastic characteristics3 and microvasculature4 are evident during chronic stages of stroke recovery. Changes to paretic muscle tissue after stroke are mechanistically complex and often inconsistent with alterations typically resulting from disuse, over-stimulation or aging alone5,6. Ultrasound provides a clear diagnostic advantage for objectively measuring muscle changes in real-time7. While commonly used assessments and scales (e.g., Modified Ashworth and Tardieu) provide a clinical gradation of neuromuscular dysfunction (i.e., degree of spasticity, resista...

ConclusionThe paretic distal tibia showed more compromised vBMD, cortical area, cortical thickness, and estimated failure load than the non-paretic tibia. Gait speed and spasticity were independently associated with estimated failure load. As treatment programs focusing on these potentially modifiable stroke-related impairments are feasible to administer, future studies are needed to determine the efficacy of such intervention strategies for improving bone strength in individuals with chronic stroke.

AbstractCranioplasty after decompressive craniectomy (DC) has been found to improve the neurological condition. The underlying mechanisms are still unknown. The aim of this study is to investigate the roles of the postural changes and atmospheric pressure (AP) in the brain hemodynamics and their relationship with clinical improvement. Seventy-eight patients were studied before and 72  h after cranioplasty with cervical and transcranial color Doppler ultrasound (TCCS) in the sitting and supine positions. Craniectomy size, shape, and force exerted by the AP (torque) were calculated. Neurological condition was assessed w...
