BACKGROUND: Pre-existing cognitive impairment (CI) is emerging as a predictor of poor post-operative outcomes in elderly patients. Little is known about impaired preoperative cognition and outcomes after elective spine surgery in this patient population. The purpose of this study was to assess the prevalence of neuro CI in elderly patients undergoing deformity surgery and its impact on postoperative outcomes. METHODS: Elderly subjects undergoing elective spinal surgery for correction of adult degenerative scoliosis were enrolled in this study...

Hepatic encephalopathy (HE) is a neuropsychiatric syndrome that ultimately occurs as a complication of acute or chronic liver failure; accompanied by hyperammonemia. This study aimed to evaluate the potential of biopropolis as a hepato- and neuro-protective agent using thioacetamide (TAA)-induced acute HE in rats as a model. Sixty Wistar rats were divided into 5 groups: Group 1 (normal control) received only saline and paraffin oil. Group 2 (hepatotoxic control) received TAA (300 mg/kg, once). Groups 3, 4, and 5 received TAA followed by vitamin E (100 mg/kg) and biopropolis (100 and 200 mg/kg), respectively, daily for 30 days...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the impact of early mobilization and rehabilitation on global functional outcome one year after aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage. METHODS: Prospective, controlled, interventional study comprising patients managed in the neuro-intermediate ward following repair of a ruptured intracranial aneurysm. Patients in the Control group (n = 76) received standard treatment, whereas those in the Early Rehab group (n = 92) in addition underwent early mobilization and rehabilitation...

OBJECTIVE Early rehabilitation is effective in an array of acute neurological disorders but it is not established as part of treatment guidelines after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH). This may in part be due to the fear of aggravating the development of cerebral vasospasm, which is the most feared complication of aSAH. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of early rehabilitation and mobilization on complications during the acute phase and within 90 days after aSAH. METHODS This was a prospective, interventional study that included patients with aSAH at the neuro-intermediate ward after aneurysm repair...

Folliculosebaceous cystic hamartoma (FSCH) is a distinct type of cutaneous hamartoma of pilosebaceous origin that usually occurs on the face. For FSCH, other parts have been reported such as the genital area, and the trunk. A 50-year-old woman presented with an asymptomatic dome-shaped scalp nodule. The clinical diagnosis was pilar cyst or tumor. Histopathological assessment showed FSCH with absolute neural component as the only mesenchymal stroma, leading to the diagnosis of folliculosebaceous cystic neural hamartoma...

Professional occupational therapy (OT) and physical therapy (PT) programs traditionally instruct students using volunteers, including children who have disabilities. Presenting a child before a classroom of students may deprive the child of dignity and may limit students' understanding of the child's disability and the importance of family-centered service delivery. An alternative approach that respects the child's privacy and promotes dignity is student observation in the context of the child's daily living...

At Gibson Rehab Center in Williamsport, PA, a continuous quality improvement project to bolster the institution's discharge planning process has resulted in increased satisfaction and an award for quality. The 15-month project was spearheaded by a multidisciplinary team charged with identifying areas that had a significant impact on customer service and suggesting better ways of delivering that service. Among the changes the group suggested were establishing a weekly discharge planning group for new neuro patients, assigning a discharge coordinator for each treatment team, and creating an interdisciplinary communication sheet for the home health therapy staff...

The neurologically injured patient experiences physiological and psychological disruptions regardless of the type of severity of injury. Through increased knowledge, nurses planning care can minimize loss of functional ability, anticipate complications and enhance recovery. Neuro-rehab rounds were developed to increase the involvement of support therapies for the patient in the neurotrauma intensive care unit (ICU) of a particular hospital. Increasing the critical care nurses' awareness of rehabilitation principles was the secondary goal...

In this study, posture is studied in the context of neuro-otological problems. In the several chapters, postural elements, postural influence upon balance aspects as well as postural components of the balance function in normal and pathological conditions are emphasized. Two main applications are put forward: rehabilitation by postural treatment techniques (REHAB) and examination techniques for the vestibulospinal aspects (posturography--PG). I. Balance function Balance is provided by automatic reflexes for stabilization of the visual field (vestibulo-ocular reflex--VOR) and for a correct posture, erect standing (vestibulo-spinal reflex--VSR) and head position (vestibulo-collic reflex--VCR)...
