Abstract

This self-directed learning module highlights new advances in the treatment of patients after stroke by means of a case study format. It is part of the chapter on stroke rehabilitation in the Self-Directed Physiatric Education Program for practitioners and trainees in physical medicine and rehabilitation. This article discusses both medical and rehabilitation issues that arise in the care of persons with strokes involving the right and left middle cerebral arteries and the vertebral artery. Cases were chosen to cover problems seen in both older and younger persons. Management of common sequelae that are typical of these stroke syndromes and identification of common co-morbidities are included.
