Neural Tract Injuries Revealed by Diffusion Tensor Tractography in a Patient With Severe Heat Stroke
Neurologic sequelae of heat stroke are prevalent among patients with severe heat stroke who require admission to an intensive care unit. Radiologic diagnosis of the condition is challenging because not every patient with clinical deficits shows abnormalities in computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging. In this case review, we report a patient who had been diagnosed with a severe heat stroke and showed gait disturbance, language disorder, and cognitive impairment although conventional magnetic resonance imaging did not reveal significant findings that correlated with his symptoms. Diffusion tensor tractography has ...

Resilience After Spinal Cord Injury: A Scoping Review
Rehabilitation medicine has recently embraced resilience, and research in this area has surged within the past decade. Several systematic reviews of resilience research have been conducted in traumatic brain injury, chronic diseases, and stroke populations. A decade into research into the role of resilience in the lives of individuals with spinal cord injury, a review of the current state of the research literature is needed to identify trends and knowledge gaps. The aims of this scoping review were (a) to classify study methods and designs used for resilience research in spinal cord injury to date, (b) to describe how res...

Paucity of Clinical Practice Guidelines for the Rehabilitation of Burn Survivors
Clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) provide an efficient route from research to practice because they follow a prescribed, vetted process for evidence collection. CPGs offer underserved fields, such as burn rehabilitation, an accessible approach to reliable treatment. A literature search was performed using the terms “Burns AND CPGs AND Rehabilitation.” Three reviewers determined whether guideline development followed an established vetting process. “Rehabilitation” required evidence of treatment to improve, maintain, or restore human function and provide treatment to facilitate recovery. Only 160 a...

Associations Between Physical Activity Intensities and Physical Function in Stroke Survivors
Conclusions These findings suggest that light activity as well as moderate to vigorous physical activity may contribute to better physical functioning in stroke survivors. Although moderate to vigorous physical activity significantly predicted the objective measure of physical function (Short Physical Performance Battery), light physical activity consistently predicted higher scores on all subscales of the Late-Life Function and Disability Instrument. Disabilities resulting from stroke may limit this population from engaging in moderate to vigorous physical activity, and these findings highlight the importance of light p...

Early Quantitative Partial Weight-Bearing Exercise After Periarticular Fractures of the Tibia Using a Lower-Body Positive-Pressure Treadmill: A Case Series
The partial weight-bearing protocol after lower limb fracture is an important issue in postoperative rehabilitation. Because it is difficult to quantify the actual weight load and provide a constant weight, the protocol is unestablished. By training with a lower-body positive-pressure treadmill and using an in-shoe pressure-measuring device, partial weight-bearing exercise can be performed with quantified loads. This case series illustrates the applicability of an early quantitative partial weight-bearing rehabilitation program using lower-body positive-pressure treadmill with an in-shoe pressure-measuring device after per...

Electrophysiological Changes After Human Muscle Tear: A Potential Confounder
The goal of this prospective electrophysiologic study is to describe the chronological electromyographic findings observed in a human gastrocnemius muscle after a traumatic tear. A 30-yr-old man sustained a tear of the medial gastrocnemius. Needle electromyography was performed serially at 5, 15, and 26 wks after injury, with the contralateral gastrocnemius muscle serving as a control. Audiovisual recordings of the studies were analyzed in a blinded manner. Five weeks after injury, the affected gastrocnemius displayed increased insertional activity on electromyography. By 15-wk postinjury, insertional activity had diminish...
