Abstract

Clinical experience suggests that visual neglect in stroke patients fluctuates over short periods of time. This fluctuation has been variously attributed to fatigue, time of day, previous activities, patient learning and compensation. Such fluctuations have clinical implicationsfor the assessment and rehabilitation of visual neglect but do date no formal study has evaluated the extent of such fluctuation over the course of a day. Twenty-two patients with an acute stroke and 19 patients with convalescent stroke were examined for visual neglect twice on the same day using the Visual Neglect Recovery Index (VNRI), a valid and sensitive measure of the severity of neglect, which could be used to select acute patients for trials of treatment of neglect. The inter-test reliability was extremely high. In contrast to past clinical accounts most patients failed to show significant fluctuation. Although preliminary, this finding suggests that a single assessment of visual neglect, using the VNRI, could help select patients for treatment trials.
