Towards Cerebrolysin Efficacy in Patients with «Silent» Cerebral Infarctions
Keywords:cerebral infarction, motor functions, cognitive functions, Cerebrolysin
The article considers the issue of the treatment for «silent» cerebral infarctions. The study on Cerebrolysin efficacy in patients with this disease is provided. It is demonstrated that Cerebrolysin leads to significant improvement in motor and cognitive functions, such as stability, gait, attention, short-term memory, as well as to the improvement of the regulatory functions.
