Abstract

Purpose: Global aphasia and neglect are considered to be the neuropsychological disorders mostly affecting the hemiplegia outcome. The aim of this study is to examine which of the two disorders is making worse the recovery from hemiplegia. Methods: The study was conduced on 45 patients suffering from hemiplegia: 15 subject with global aphasia, 15 with neglect and 15 without neuropsychological disorders (control group). All patients were subject to rehabilitation treatment. Before and after rehabilitation, the assessment of patients was made using neuropsychological tests, Fugl-Meyer scale and Functional Independence Measure (FIM). At admission, all patients were not self-sufficient. Results: At the end of the rehabilitation period the recovery of motor function was poor in both groups. The damage on limbs motion was severe in 93.4% and marked in 6,6% of both patients with global aphasia and neglect. At discharge, the FIM motor score of patients with global aphasia (44.6+/-13) was higher than in those with neglect (37.2+/-10) and was not statistically different from control group (51.2+/-18) (p= 0.493). The FIM motor score of patients with neglect was significantly lower than control group (p=0.036) In patients with global aphasia effectiveness was 35.5% and efficiency 0.40 while in patients with neglect effectiveness was 18% and efficiency 0.22. The final disability was lower in patients subject to global aphasia than neglect. Conclusions: The study showed that neglect limits the recovery from stroke more than global aphasia.e.
