Devenir des patients mutiques à la phase aiguë de l'AVC et état des lieux de leur prise en charge orthophonique

Abstract : Following a cerebrovascular accident (CVA), language impairments (aphasia) occur in 20% to 55% of patients during the acute phase. A period of mutism can be observed, engendering major communication difficulties. Speech therapy is therefore required. This study is centred on the evolution of mute patients and the analysis of their speech therapy. To carry out the study, I met patients treated at Bordeaux hospital in the acute phase of their CVA. After three and six months, an in-depth language and communication assessment was carried out to determine the extent of their recovery from mutism. Results show a good average evolution of initial mutism. However, clinical and language data do not allow to reliably predict a possible recovery from mutism. Nor does a consensual rehabilitation protocol appear to currently stand out. Therapy must be based on that used with most acute non-fluent aphasias once the most efficient method/s to produce the first words has/have been identified.
