Materials & Methods: This study was a clinical randomized trial. Patients were classified randomly in one of the heparin (n=32) and one group Aspirin (n=30) treatment. At first in the Heparin treatment group, patients were medicated by Heparin 100 IU/kg and then it was followed by 1000IU/hour for 48 hours. In the Aspirin treated group, whom took 325mg/day for 48 hours. The effectiveness of both treatments were evaluated after 48 hours on neuro-muscular, speech, vision, and sphincter function.

Results: The results showed that both treatments were effective on improvement of neuro-muscular, speech, vision, and sphincter function, while Heparin effectiveness was more than Aspirin. Improvement of Nervous function in the Heparin group was 43.8% in compare of 33.3% for Aspirin (p=0.40). In addition, in the Heparin treatment group 56.3% of muscular dysfunction was attained optimum muscular function in compare of 33.3% with Aspirin (p=0.001). It was found significant relation for improvement of speech function in Heparin treatment group (P=0.01). There were not a significant finding relation for improvement of vision, and sphincter function between Heparin and Aspirin treated groups.
