Intérêt de la Thérapie Prismatique dans la Rééducation de l'Héminégligence suite à un AVC Droit

Abstract : Context: Hemispatial neglect is a complication which can occur after stroke. It is a factor which implicates a longer and harder recovery for stroke patients. Many different therapies are proposed for managing hemispatial neglect; out of those, Prism Adaptation seems to be one of the most promising. Objectives: To assess Prism Adaptation in the rehabilitation of hemispatial neglect in patients suffering from a right hemisphere stroke. Participants: Patients suffering from hemispatial neglect after a right hemisphere stroke. Methods: Several databases (Pubmed / PEDro / Science direct) have been searched, until december 2019, in order to select eligible articles. Selected articles should include at least one of the following scales: Behavioral Inattention Test (BIT) and the Catherine Bergego Scale (CBS). Results: From the whole of the articles, 7 controlled trials corresponded to the inclusion criteria. All of the 7 articles compared Prism Adaptation to a similar protocol using placebo lenses. The results indicate improvements in the BIT score, especially in the BITH sub-test. Improvements in the CBS score have been non significatives. Conclusion: Prism Adaptation seems to be a promising therapy for improving visuospatial disorders of hemispatial neglect patients but further research is needed in order to confirm if it can replace conventional therapies.
