Determinants of Balance Recovery After Stroke - Retrospective Study "DOBRAS-R"

Completed

Phase N/A Results N/A

Trial Description

Retrospective cohort study of consecutive patients investigated in a neurorehabilitation ward after a first hemispheric stroke. Postural and gait disorders in relation to referential of verticality have been analyzed in routine care.

Detailed Description

300 consecutive patients, admitted in our department for neurorehabilitation after a first hemispherical stroke, have been enrolled retrospectively. During their hospitalisation, all patients have been routinely evaluated with clinical scales, evaluating motor and cognitive deficits. Postural and visual vertical (VV) assessments have been performed 1 to 4 times during in-patient-stay.
The objective was to analyse the determinants of balance recovery after stroke, in particular the impact of wrong referential of verticality.
Data collection was performed by means of medical records. Observation period covered from january 2012 to march 2017.
