Prise en charge rééducative via internet de patients opérés d'une tumeur par neurochirurgie éveillée

Abstract : Working memory deficits are common in low-grade glioma patients after awake surgery and often impair functioning in everyday life. The aim of our study was to explore the short-term effects and the transfers of an internet-based specific rehabilitation of working memory in three adult patients, carriers of a brain tumor grade II / III localized in the frontal or frontotemporal left lobe, and treated by awake neurosurgery. They followed 25 online training sessions of working memory over 5 weeks. After rehabilitation, the patients showed improved working memory in both entrained tasks and in neuropsychological tests, slightly improved speed of reaction and naming, better understanding of spoken and written language, and more positive perception of their mood and communication. Only one patient felt a significant decrease in his daily cognitive impairment. The control variables (word list memorizing tests in episodic memory and fluences) were relatively stable.
