Clinical Trial Summary

Stroke is the leading cause of adult disability throughout the world. Motor function deficit is one of the common consequences. It is usually described for the peripheral muscles that there is a cortical representation contralaterale with a crossed cortico-spinal route: the consequence is a contralaterale motor disorder on the brain damage.

The impact of a stroke on diaphragm movements have been described in 6 studies: however, they were all observational and transversal studies evaluating diaphragm function.

Assessment using diaphragm thickness is another technique described in the literature. Visualization of diaphragm in the zone of apposition allows to assess diaphragm thickness at inspiration and expiration. The impact of a stroke on diaphragm thickening has been reported in only one recent observational study.

It seems that diaphragm would be damaged after a stroke, but unilateral or bilateral dysfonction is yet to be confirmed. Moreover, only a few measurements were performed in these studies, and not a diaphragm function follow-up.


Clinical Trial Description

To our knowledge, no longitudinal study evaluated diaphragm movements and diaphragm thickness fraction. This study is a preliminary study which aims to evaluate diaphragm function after a stroke and its evaluation within the first months.

Starting hypothesis is the following: after a stroke, patients with a unilateral motor dysfunction have a diaphragm dysfunction predominant on the same side as the motor dysfunction. After a few months, retrieval is insufficient and they could benefit from a specific reinforcement program. ;
