Cranioplasty is the main surgical intervention for repairing cranial defects performed in about 80% of the patients following cancer surgery or decompressive craniectomy. Although some works have shown recovery of motor and cognitive function, including memory, attention, and executive functions, until today no studies have focused on language recovery after cranioplasty. A 68-year-old woman came to the Neurorehabilitation Unit of the IRCCS Neurolesi (Messina, Italy) because of a fluent aphasia due to a severe left nucleocapsular hemorrhage and greatly improved her motor and neuropsychological status after cranioplasty...

David B Grover, Jeffrey L Alexander
BACKGROUND: Telemedicine-delivered cardiac rehabilitation (telemedicine-CR) provides an alternative pathway for patients who are unable to participate in conventional CR. Little is known regarding the relationships among potential participants' perceptions of barriers to CR participation, interest in telemedicine-CR, and self-efficacy beliefs toward the use of telemedicine. The purpose of this study was to identify if associations exist between these variables. METHODS: A quantitative, correlational survey study was conducted using the Cardiac Rehabilitation Barriers Scale and a survey examining interest in and self-efficacy for telemedicine technologies...

PURPOSE: Nurses' perspectives on electronic medical record (eMR) use and compatibility with person-centered care (PCC) in rehabilitation were explored. DESIGN: This cross-sectional, qualitative study involved nurses practicing in a spinal cord injury service within the first Australian tertiary hospital to implement a large-scale eMR system. METHODS: Ten focus groups were audio-recorded and transcribed for thematic analysis. FINDINGS: The three themes were (1) discovering how eMR fits in a specialty setting, (2) making eMR work through adaptability, and (3) realizing the impact of eMR inclusion in the nurse-patient relationship...
