Combined tDCS+PNS After Acute Stroke
Effect of Combined Anodal tDCS and Peripheral Nerve Stimulation on Motor Recovery in Acute Stroke

Recent work showed that application of peripheral nerve and cortical stimulation independently can induce 10-15 % improvement in motor performance in patients with chronic stroke.

The purpose of this study was to compare in post-stroke hemiplegic patients the effect on motor recovery of one session of anodal transcranial direct current stimulation to the ipsilesional primary motor cortex (M1) combined with a peripheral radial nerve electrical stimulation (rEPNS) to the paretic hand repeated 5 successive days with the effect of the same peripheral nerve stimulation combined with sham tDCS.

Design: randomized, double-blind, parallel controlled clinical trial. Patients eligible for the study: Acute ischaemic stroke Primary outcome measure: Jebsen Taylor test Secondary outcome measures Nine peg hole test Hand tapping grip and wrist force Cortical excitability of Ipsilesional M1(TMS) Follow-up: 30 days
