Objective: To investigate the relationship between the carotid intima-media thickness (tCIM) and trunk control in individuals in individuals who have the acute phase of ischemic cerebrovascular disease.
Materials and Methods: This study was conducted between January 2016 and January 2017 at the intensive care unit and Neurology Department of Gaziantep University. Thirty-one patients who had ischemic cerebrovascular disease within the last 72 hours were included in the study. tCIM was measured using portable ultrasound. The Trunk Impairment Scale (TIS) and Trunk Control Scale (TCS) were used for trunk assessment.
Results: t was demonstrated that there was no significant relationship between the TIS, TCS, and right and left tCIM measurements in any subjects (p>0.05). When the risk factors were investigated, it was found that hypertension was the leading risk factor with 30%. A comparison of the subjects according to the affected side showed that there was no difference between trunk control, trunk impairment, and tCIM (p>0.05).
Conclusion: There is no relationship between tCIM and trunk control. There is a need for further studies that investigate the relationship between functionality and risk factors.
