Langage élaboré et gliomes infiltrants : étude de sensibilité d’une batterie d’évaluation

Abstract : Complaints about their language skills are often expressed by patients with infiltrating gliomas. These generally rather mild disorders may be unnoticed during cognitive assessment because the current tests are insufficiently sensitive to objectify them. Today, only a few tests assess all components of language. Thus, the aim of our study was to bring to light the sensitivity of the French ELEA battery (assessment of sophisticated language in adults). To achieve this, we submitted 14 patients, that had undergone wide awake brain surgery for a cerebral glioma, to a protocol including executive and attentional tests, assessment of the impact of aphasia on daily life (Aphasia Handicap Score and Aphasia Severity Rating Scale) and 16 ELEA tasks. Results evidence both pre- and post-operative impairments as well as correlations between these disorders and tumor grade, involved hemisphere and aphasia handicap score. However, gender, age and education level were not significant criteria. Our conclusion is that thorough language assessment of patients with gliomas and specific rehabilitation programs are therefore necessary.
