Energy Intake at Admission for Improving Activities of Daily Living and Nutritional Status among Convalescent Stroke Patients.

Energy Intake at Admission for Improving Activities of Daily Living and Nutritional Status among Convalescent Stroke Patients. Neurol Med Chir (Tokyo). 2019 May 22;: Authors: Nishiyama A, Wakabayashi H, Nishioka S, Nagano A, Momosaki R Abstract Our aim was to clarify the nutritional status and energy intake needed for activities of daily living (ADL) improvement among convalescent stroke patients. This retrospective cohort study of stroke patients used data from the Japan Rehabilitation Nutrition Database. Mean energy intake per ideal body weight was 26 kcal/kg/day at 1 week after hospitalization. Patients were divided into two groups according to energy intake: ≥26 kcal/kg/day (high) and

Conclusions These results provide novel evidence that ipsilateral projections are not likely to contribute to strength but are correlated to spasticity of spastic-paretic elbow flexors after stroke.

Objective The aim of the study was to investigate the association between body mass index and rehabilitation outcome in hemiparetic patients with stroke in subacute phase. Design This was a prospective study testing the correlation between body mass index and the effectiveness of rehabilitation, measured using Barthel Index scores. We enrolled patients with subacute stroke (n = 664; age, 68 ± 14 yrs; length of hospital stay, 84 ± 34 days). We assessed the body mass index and Barthel Index both at admission and discharge. The effectiveness of rehabilitation was computed as the percentage increment in Bart...

This article synthesized resources that reported aerobic and resistance training guidelines for people with multiple sclerosis, stroke, and Parkinson disease. Systematic searches yielded 25 eligible resources from electronic databases and Web sites or textbooks of major organizations. Data were extracted (exercise frequency, intensity, time, and type) and synthesized into three sets of recommendations. Exercise guidelines for multiple sclerosis consistently recommended 2–3 d/wk of aerobic training (10–30 mins at moderate intensity) and 2–3 d/wk of resistance training (1–3 sets between 8 and 15 repet...

In conclusion, these results suggest that face-name mnemonic strategy training has the potential to improve memory performance and to foster brain activation changes, by the recruitment of contralesional areas from default-mode, frontoparietal, and dorsal attention networks as a possible compensation mechanism.

This study presents the results of over 10-year (median 133 months, range 95–149) safety follow-up of VIF-CAD patients. Overall, 12 (36.4%) patients died in VIF and 8 (42.1%) in Placebo group (P = .68). Cardiovascular mortality was 12/33 (36.4%) in the VIF group and 6/19 (31.6%) in Placebo group (P = .73). Two Placebo patients died due to malignancies, but no VIF patients (P = .17). The Kaplan–Meier curves of combined endpoint: cardiovascular mortality, myocardial infarction and stroke were similar for both patient groups (P = .71). Odds ratio of Placebo group increa...
