Clinical Trial Summary

This study is aimed to investigate the effect of continuous theta burst stimulation (cTBS) and low frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) on upper extremity spasticity and functional recovery in patients with chronic ischemic stroke.

Clinical Trial Description

A sham-controlled double-blind randomized study was undertaken. 20 patients with chronic stroke were randomized into active rTMS group (n=7), active cTBS group (n=7) and sham cTBS group (n=6). In the active rTMS group, 10 sessions of intact hemispheric upper extremity motor area (M1) were targeted and inhibitor rTMS was applied with a frequency of 1 Hz consisting of 1200 pulses for 20 minutes. In the active cTBS group, 10 sessions of intact hemispheric upper extremity motor area (M1) were targeted and cTBS was administered for a total of 600 pulses consisting of 3 burst stimulations of 50 Hz repeated every 200 milliseconds for 40 seconds. Sham cTBS was applied in the same protocol but using sham coil. Within 30 minutes after TMS sessions, all patients underwent 10 sessions of joint range of motion, stretching, strengthening, balance and coordination exercises, hand rehabilitation and daily living activities under the guidance of a physiotherapist, regardless of which group they were in. Upper Extremity Fugl-Meyer Motor Function Scale, Modified Ashworth Scale (MAS), Functional Independence Measure (FIM), Motor Activity Log-28 (MAL-28) and Brunnstrom upper extremity and hand motor recovery stage were assessed at pre-treatment, post-treatment and follow up at 4 weeks. ;
