Abstract

[Purpose] To clarify the relationship between white matter fiber damage and the Ability for Basic Movement Scale (ABMS) II in patients with stroke in a diffusion tensor tract-based spatial statistic study. [Subjects and Methods] Twelve patients with stroke (seven men and five women, mean age ± SD: 61.6 ± 8.5 years) were evaluated using the ABMS II. The patients were divided into the ABMS II good group and the ABMS II poor group. Tract-based spatial statistical analysis was performed using diffusion tensor images in both groups. [Results] Patients in the ABMS II good group had significantly higher fractional anisotropy values of the anterior thalamic radiation (ATR), superior longitudinal fasciculus (SLF), inferior occipitofrontal fasciculus (IOF), and uncinate fasciculus (UF) of the lesion-containing hemisphere than patients in the ABMS II poor group. [Conclusion] ATR, SLF, and IOF damage may affect ABMS II scores in patients with stroke.
