M. V. Putilina, M.A.Soldatov

According to the WHO, more than 5 million people died of cerebral stroke in the past decade, and more than 80 % of 15 million survivors were disabled. Primary disability among stroke survivors reaches 3,2 per 10 000 population, and only 20 % return to work. Early rehabilitation after a stroke includes therapeutic effects in the time period immediately following after its appearance, during which adequate therapy can reduce the extent of brain damage and improve the outcome of stroke. The complexity of rehabilitation consists of the use of a number of complementary techniques aimed to overcome the neurological defect. The emergence of new methods of rehabilitation therapy stimulating neuroplasticity increases the therapeutic potential of rehabilitation technologies. The use of peptide drug Cortexin in post-stroke rehabilitation is justified.
