Abstract
Objectives:This retrospective study aimed to compare right-brain damage (RBD) and left-brain damage (LBD) patientssuffering from unilateral neglect (UN) after hemispheric stroke in the acute phase, in their recovery and on theirdifferentattention profiles.Method: We included 56 first-ever hemispheric stroke patients with UN (36 RBD and 20 LBD) with results fortwo attention tests (Bell and TAP tests) at two intervals.We comparedthem side by side and to previous validation’s studies.Results:RBD were more severely impaired at T1for the spatial attention and were slower and more impaired for the nonspatial attention. Around 64% were impaired due to a middle cerebral artery (MCA) stroke in RBD. UN in LBD were caused by MCA (45%) and posterior cerebral artery (35%). Only RBD could beassessed at two intervals, with an improvement for every test between the acute and the later phase. The two attention patternsseemed to evolve independently, with a better recovery for the spatial attention pattern.Conclusion:RBD are more impaired in the acute stage of UN. Nonspatial attention deficitsat the entry seems to persisteven after several weeks of therapyopposed to spatial attention deficit which better recovers.Further research is needed to assess the recovery of LBD and compare them to RBD.
