Could a simple test predict long-term stroke recovery?

Researchers have demonstrated that results from a simple test may predict how well individuals who have recently experienced a stroke will recover up to 3 years later. This could help doctors to make informed treatment decisions, and allow patients and their families to understand the long-term prognosis.

The long-term implications of a stroke can vary enormously between patients and can be difficult to predict, but estimating the long-term prognosis for a patient could be useful in determining what future treatment or care may be necessary.
