Abstract


Background. Ischaemic stroke causes the considerable worsening functional state and lowering patient’s quality of life. It was from statistical analysis, that about 60% patient’s after stroke stays with durable symptoms of focal damage of brain. The patient’s after stroke of brain make up the most numerous group exacting the rehabilitation among the ill’s treated on neurological wards. The aim of post stroke rehabilitation is recovery independence and the improvement of quality of life.
Material and methods. Study group consisted of 85 patients up to 3 months after ischaemic stroke. The functional state using “Repty” Functional Index, Rivermead Mobility Index and Södring Motor Evaluation Scale has been obtained. Partially the early change of quality of life using Frenchay Activity Index has been assessed. The effects of early rehabilitation regarding on the stroke subtype has been also analysed.
Results. After early rehabilitation the best effects in patients with total anterior circulation infarcts and partial anterior circulation infarcts has been observed. The worse effects in patients with posterior circulation infarcts and lacunar infarcts has been observed.
Conclusions. The folded structure and the specific of stroke extorts the considerable individualization of procedures. The investigations showed the correlation between sub-type of ischaemic stroke and effects of rehabilitation has been observed. The clinical subtype of stroke differentiates the results of improving significance. It has been confirmed that early beginning of comprehensive rehabilitation after stroke may statistically significant influence on effects of rehabilitation.
