Minimally Invasive Brain Surgery(Functional Stereotaxy) for Stroke

History

Humoud is a 64 years old male patient who admitted to Beijing Puhua International Hospital due to “movement disorder in left limbs for 10 years”. He was diagnosed as sequel of stroke.

Medical Condition before Minimally Invasive Brain Surgery (Functional Stereotaxy) for Stroke

The patient’s left heel-knee-tibia test was lack of stability. The patient’s muscle strength: 4/5 in his right limbs; 3-/5 in his left wrist and extensor of fingers; 2/5 in the flexor; 5-/5 in the proximal end; 4/5 in the proximal end of the left lower limb; 5-/5 in the distal end of the left lower limb. Shuffling gait in his left foot could be noted while his walking. His alternative movements of left hand were clumsy.

Minimally Invasive Brain Surgery (Functional Stereotaxy) for Stroke

Several medical protocols were applied to the patient, including stereotactic operation with neural growth factor injection, neural nutrition and cerebral metabolism as well as symptomatic treatment such as monitoring blood glucose and blood pressure, adjusting oral administration of hypotensive drugs and hypoglycemic drugs, combined with rehabilitation therapy and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

Medical Condition after Minimally Invasive Brain Surgery for Stroke

The patient’s general condition is much better than before. The movements of his left upper limb and shoulder joint have been more flexible compared with before, especially when he moves his body side to side. Finger flexion was the same as before. Muscular tension of extorsion in his left upper limb has been significantly decreased. Muscular strength in the left lower limb is improved than before. Muscle strength: 4+/5 in his right limbs; 4/5 in his left wrist and extensor of fingers; 3/5 in the flexor; 5/5 in the proximal end; 4+/5 in the proximal end of the left lower limb. The movement of going down/up on one leg has been also improved compared with the time when he was admitted.
