Effectiveness of rehabilitation training combined with acupuncture on aphasia after cerebral hemorrhage: A systematic review protocol of randomized controlled trial
Conclusion: The results of this study will provide present evidence on assessing effectiveness of RT and acupuncture after CH. Dissemination and ethics: The findings of this study are expected to be published in peer-reviewed journals. It does not require ethical approval, because no individual data will be utilized in this study. Systematic review registration: PROSPERO CRD42019131587.

We retrospectively evaluated patients who underwent STA-MCA bypass surgery for acute atherosclerotic occlusion intractable to other treatments. From June 2010 to May 2014, 10 patients underwent STA-MCA bypass surgery for acute atheroscleroti...
Goals of care discussions are frequently indicated after acute stroke. Many of these conversations happen without direct patient participation secondary to aphasia or encephalopathy.
The thalamus is related to language function, and some thalamic stroke cases can cause aphasia . However, most previous cases reporting thalamic damage-induced ipsilateral subcortical diaschisis and aphasia were hemorrhagic stroke [1,2]. Only a few left thalamus infarction cases showed cortical hypoperfusion concerned with the aphasia, but no single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) or thalamic nucleus data were available . Thus, aphasia pathology due to cortical hypoperfusion following thalamus infarction, especially with respect to thalamic nuclei, is still unknown.
AbstractPurpose of the ReviewAlthough visual and somatosensory disturbances are the most common migraine aura (MA) symptoms, patients can also experience other symptoms during their MA. The aim of this review is to provide an overview of studies that report symptoms of dysphasia and other higher cortical dysfunctions (HCDs) during MA, as well as to determine the frequency of HCDs.Recent FindingsFive studies met the inclusion criteria, corresponding to 697 patients overall. The most frequently reported HCDs were those of the language group (range 10 –53%). The occurrence of visual HCDs was noted in 12–40 patient...
Conclusions: We speculated that damages to the basal ganglia disrupted the cortico-subcortical circuits that facilitated the transhemispheric communications of language functions, resulting in decreased interhemispheric FC. Consequently, the intrahemispheric FC increased as a possible compensatory mechanism to restore the language functions. PMID: 31955634 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
