Abstract
This study examines how prestroke dementia and cognitive dysfunction after stroke influence the personal activities of daily living (P-ADL) in elderly patients in the acute phase after stroke. Elderly stroke patients (n=60) referred to geriatric rehabilitation were included. Assessments were carried out at admission and evaluated at discharge from the geriatric ward. The median age of the group was 77 years. Astrand's questionnaire was used to interview a close relative about the patient's prestroke cognitive status. P-ADL was assessed with the Barthel Index (BI). The Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE) and a neuropsychological test battery were used to measure cognitive functions. Analyses were made using non-parametrical methods. In the... (More)
This study examines how prestroke dementia and cognitive dysfunction after stroke influence the personal activities of daily living (P-ADL) in elderly patients in the acute phase after stroke. Elderly stroke patients (n=60) referred to geriatric rehabilitation were included. Assessments were carried out at admission and evaluated at discharge from the geriatric ward. The median age of the group was 77 years. Astrand's questionnaire was used to interview a close relative about the patient's prestroke cognitive status. P-ADL was assessed with the Barthel Index (BI). The Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE) and a neuropsychological test battery were used to measure cognitive functions. Analyses were made using non-parametrical methods. In the acute phase after stroke, neither the presence of prestroke dementia nor the cognitive status after stroke onset among these elderly patients influenced P-ADL at admission or at discharge. Prestroke dementia and cognitive dysfunction's were found to be common after stroke onset, however this did not have any impact on dependence in P-ADL in these elderly patients at admission or at discharge.
