Apraxia


Presentation

  • In the present paper we describe the case of a left-brain damaged patient, who presented both symptoms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Resting Tremor
  • After treatment, although the bradykinesia, rigidity, and resting tremor of the patient significantly decreased, the dexterity of the patient's hands did not improve.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • Additionally, two of the children showed significant generalization to imitated phrases with the treatment items. Four of the children maintained their treatment gains up to 4 months post-treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Despite evidence that several types of limb apraxia significantly impact functional abilities, surprisingly few studies have focused on development of treatment paradigms.[doi.org]

Prognosis

  • Prognosis The prognosis for individuals with apraxia varies and depends partly on the underlying cause.[ninds.nih.gov]
  • Analysis of his articulatory and prosodic abnormalities in the context of intact communicative abilities as well as description of symptoms dynamics over time provides valuable information for clinical diagnosis of this specific disorder and prognosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Prognosis The prognosis of acquired apraxia/dyspraxia will depend on the nature and severity of the underlying cause.[patient.info]

Etiology

  • Our results argue for shared neural correlates of limb apraxia in AD and bvFTD and validate the syndrome as an important neuropsychological feature across different etiologies.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • It is hoped that this will further our understanding of the initial stages of pregnancy and the etiology of various reproductive disorders.[news-medical.net]
  • The etiology of OMA is usually not known. However, the condition is sometimes attributed to insults occurring either during the perinatal period or the first 6 months of life.[aapos.org]
  • Etiology Dysarthria Dysarthric errors result from a disruption of muscular control due to lesions of either the central or peripheral nervous systems.[csuchico.edu]

Epidemiology

  • Epidemiology [ 1 ] DCD is thought to affect 1 in 10 children of school age in the UK. It is more common in boys than in girls. Presentation Presentation is variable in terms of severity from person to person.[patient.info]
  • Epidemiology The epidemiology of AADS was most recently reported by Bickerton et al. (2012) .[frontiersin.org]
  • Figure 4 illustrates the time course of recovery from paresis at the impairment and at the functional levels, as derived from epidemiological data after stroke.[doi.org]

Pathophysiology

  • Our results prompt research into the pathophysiological background and therapeutic options to treat limb-kinetic apraxia. The simple coin rotation test provides valuable information about ADL-related dexterity skills. 2016 EAN.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • [ edit ] The prevailing hypothesis for the pathophysiology of ideomotor apraxia is that the various brain lesions associated with the disorder somehow disrupt portions of the praxis system. [3] The praxis system is the brain regions that are involved[en.wikipedia.org]

Prevention

  • It prevents a person from carrying out a learned movement. Various interventions are used to treat apraxia but evidence of their benefit has been lacking. To determine which therapeutic interventions targeted at motor apraxia reduce disability.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
