EVALUACION CLINICA Y TRATAMIENTO DE LA ESPASTICIDAD

Una de las complicaciones médicas más frecuentes de la enfermedad de la neurona motora superior es la espasticidad, habitual en los pacientes con lesión de la médula espinal, en la esclerosis múltiple y en los pacientes con secuelas de ictus, parálisis cerebral y traumatismos cráneo-encefálicos. Si bien es considerada una alteración de la función motora, algunos pacientes presentan además dolor crónico incapacitante, contracturas o espasmos, que pueden interferir con el sueño o producir alteraciones psicológicas.

NEUROPSYCHOLOGICAL ASSESSMENTS OF DEMENTIA IN DOWN SYNDROME AND INTELLECTUAL DISABILITIES

About this book

Up until the early 1980s there were a limited number of tests used for diagnosing dementia, and those existing were severely limited in terms of accurate detection, particularly in individuals with intellectual disabilities. The last 25 years however have seen several neurological measures being developed to aid in this diagnosis, with treatment further branching out to include psychologists, psychiatrists, specialised nurses and neuroscientists, as well as clinical practioners.
