Evaluation of the effects of extremely low frequency electromagnetic field on the levels of some inflammatory cytokines in post-stroke patients.
CONCLUSION: The increased expression of IL-1β found in this study may be a response to ELF-EMF stimulation. It is hypothesized that a neuroprotective role of this cytokine may occur due to IL-1β-dependent regulation of neurotrophic factors. Further research is needed to explore this hypothesis.

Sex differences in the effects of exercise on cognition post-stroke: Secondary analysis of a randomized controlled trial.
CONCLUSION: Females living with stroke may demonstrate a greater response to exercise on selective attention and conflict resolution compared with males with stroke. These findings suggest that there may be sex-specific effects of exercise on cognitive function in individuals with stroke. PMID: 31608416 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Relationship between pre-stroke physical activity and symptoms of post-stroke anxiety and depression: An observational study.
CONCLUSION: In this group of patients with mild symptoms of emotional distress, it seems that pre-stroke physical activity might be protective against post-stroke depression, but not anxiety. Many patients with mild-to-moderate stroke report being equally active before and after the stroke. PMID: 31565752 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Effects on walking of simultaneous upper/lower limb abobotulinumtoxina injections in patients with stroke or brain injury with spastic hemiparesis.
CONCLUSION: Simultaneous lower and upper limb abobotulinumtoxinA treatment does not hamper improvement in walking speed compared with lower limb treatment alone. Thus, physicians may split the 1,500 U abobotulinumtoxinA dose as needed to best treat patients with spastic paresis. PMID: 31529136 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Need for structured healthcare organization and support for return to work after stroke in Sweden: Experiences of stroke survivors.
CONCLUSION: Tailored rehabilitation content and a structured stepwise return-to-work process facilitated return to work. Insufficient structure within the healthcare system and lack of support in daily life were perceived barriers to return to work, and need to be improved. These aspects should be considered in the return-to-work process after stroke. PMID: 31468058 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Intra- and inter-rater reliability of Fugl-Meyer Assessment of Upper Extremity in stroke.
CONCLUSION: The FMA-UE is reliable both within and between raters in patients with stroke in the early subacute phase. A wider international use of FMA-UE will allow comparison of stroke recovery between regions and countries and thereby potentially improve the quality of care and rehabilitation in persons with stroke worldwide.

Comparison of measurement properties of three shortened versions of the balance evaluation systems test (bestest) in people with subacute stroke.
CONCLUSION: All short-form BESTests demonstrated excellent intra-rater and inter-rater reliability (intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) = 0.95-0.99) and excellent concurrent validity (r = 0.93-0.96). Unlike the Brief-BESTest and Mini-BESTest, the S-BESTest and BESTest had no significant floor/ceiling effects (< 20%). The standardized response mean (SRM) of all 4 BESTest versions were large, ranging between 1.19 and 1.57, indicating sufficient internal responsiveness. The area under the curve (AUC) of the S-BESTest and BESTest were significantly higher than the Brief-BESTest and Mini-BESTest, reflecting b...

Closeness and life satisfaction six years after stroke for patients and spouses.
CONCLUSION: For the vast majority of people who have had a stroke and their spouses, long-term satisfaction with aspects of "Closeness" decline.

Development and validity of an innovative test to assess guideline-consistent clinical reasoning by physical therapists in stroke rehabilitation.
CONCLUSION: The script concordance test has good construct validity. Greater self-reported guideline knowledge, successful completion of the post-bachelor Dutch Neurorehabilitation course, as well as systematic participation in professional development activities facilitate important factors that enhance specialization. The script concordance test is a valid feedback tool for physical therapists to support professional development in the domain of stroke rehabilitation.

Safety and efficacy of recovery-promoting drugs for motor function after stroke: A systematic review of randomised controlled trials.
CONCLUSION: Candidate drug interventions promoting motor recovery post-stroke were identified, specifically selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors and levodopa; however, the high risk of bias in many trials is concerning. Drugs to improve motor function remain an important area of enquiry. Future research must focus on establishing the correct drug intervention to be administered at an optimal dose and time, combined with the most effective adjuvant physical therapy to drive stroke recovery.

Impact of unilateral spatial neglect with or without other cognitive impairments on independent gait recovery in stroke survivors.
CONCLUSION: The presence of unilateral spatial neglect without other cognitive impairments is not a significant factor for regaining independent gait. In contrast, unilateral spatial neglect becomes a strong negative factor when combined with other cognitive impairments. PMID: 30406267 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Effect of long-term use of ankle-foot orthoses on tibialis anterior muscle electromyography in patients with sub-acute stroke: a randomized controlled trial.
CONCLUSION: Use of ankle-foot orthoses post-stroke reduced tibialis anterior muscle activity in the swing phase within 1 measurement; however, long-term use of ankle-foot orthoses for 26 weeks did not affect such activity. Early or delayed provision of ankle-foot orthoses did not affect the findings. The results indicate that there is no need to fear negative consequences on tibialis anterior-activity because of long-term AFO-use (early) after stroke.

Influence of functional electrical stimulation of the hamstrings on knee kinematics in stroke survivors walking with stiff knee gait.
Conclusion: The results of this exploratory study suggest an increase in knee kinematics in swing after functional electrical stimulation of the hamstrings in stroke survivors walking with a stiff knee gait. The largest improvement in peak knee flexion in swing was seen when participants walked with hamstring stimulation. Participants with low neurological impairment responded better to hamstring stimulation, and there are indications that the effect of hamstring stimulation can be predicted during a single session. The effect of functional electrical stimulation is comparable to that of more invasive treatment options, su...

Rehabilitation outcomes of stroke patients with low left ventricular ejection fraction in the subacute rehabilitation phase.
CONCLUSION: Stroke patients with low left ventricular ejection fraction in the subacute phase could achieve almost the same functional outcomes as those of patients with preserved left ventricular ejection fraction.

Assessing of imagined and real expanded Timed Up and Go tests in patients with chronic stroke: A case-control study.
CONCLUSION: Temporal congruence was similar for healthy subjects and patients for all sub-tasks of the ETUG test. Moreover, temporal congruence was reduced for the same sub-tasks of the ETUG test in patients and healthy subjects. This suggests that the motor imagery involved the same cerebral structures in both groups, probably including the cerebellum, since it was intact in all patients.
