Title Current Status of Rehabilitation for Patients with Homonymous Field Defects
Creator Susanne Trauzettel-Klosinski
Subject Homonymous Hemianopia; Reading; Orientation; Rehabilitation; Training
Description In patients with brain damage, often the hemianopic field defect is not diagnosed, because other neurological symptoms, such as hemiplegia, are predominant. The mean time between the brain damage and the diagnosis of the hemianopia was found to be 3 +/- 2 months (Zhang et al 2006). Additionally, the patients often do not realize the field defect, even though they experience activity limitations in their everyday life.
