Stroke Rehabilitation

A stroke, previously known medically as a cerebrovascular accident (CVA), is the rapidly developing loss of brain function(s) due to disturbance in the blood supply to the brain. This can be due to ...

Stroke CVA

A stroke is a cerebrovascular accident that results in inadequate blood flow to part of the brain, starving it of oxygen and causing immediate and irreversible changes to the neurones. If affects 15...

Vascular Dementia

Vascular Dementia accounts for 25% of all dementias (the second most commen cause after Alzheimers. It is the cumulative effects of many small strokes - patients often have evidence of vascular path...

Can Simple Biomarkers Improve Stroke Prediction in AF?

Whether a patient with AF needs a blood thinner is as much a "guess" as it was a decade ago, says Dr Mandrola. Could a novel biomarker score developed from the ENGAGE-AF trial replace th...

Three-Biomarker Score Could Enhance Stroke Risk Prediction in AF

In a proof-of-principle analysis based on a large randomized trial, using a score derived in part from troponins and natriuretic peptides "dramatically and substantially improved our ability to p...

Scientists develop prediction score to identify older adults at risk of developing pneumonia

In a study published in the Journal of American Geriatrics Society, researchers developed a "prediction score" to help healthcare professionals determine which older adults might be most at risk for d...

DAPT score improves risk prediction of continued DAPT

(HealthDay)—A decision tool (dual antiplatelet therapy [DAPT] score) improves risk prediction for continued DAPT beyond assessment of myocardial infarction (MI) history, according to a study publish...

Blood coagulation detector may help in monitoring stroke risk

Atrial fibrillation (AF) causes an irregular and sometimes fast heart rate, and is a common risk factor for stroke. To estimate this risk in AF patients and determine the requirement for anticoagulati...

Risk Score for Prediction of the Long-term Benefit of an ICD

The authors evaluate the value of a simple risk score for identifying patients who are more likely to benefit from a CRT-defibrillator. Europace

ABC Risk Score Better Predicts Bleeding in AF

A novel biomarker-based risk prediction score is better able to predict bleeding risk in atrial-fibrillation patients on anticoagulation and "should be useful in decision support," the a...

Stroke risk assessment in atrial fibrillation: risk factors and markers of atrial myopathy

The mechanisms of thromboembolism in patients with atrial fibrillation are complex and not well understood, and existing stroke risk scores are limited in their predictive capacity. In this Review, Ca...

The ability of the ABCD2 score to predict stroke 1 year after TIA or minor stroke was assessed.

Comparitive study of Greek stroke score, Siriraj stroke score and Allen stroke score to differentiate acute stroke etiology in comparision with CT scan.

Long-Term Risk of Stroke after Transient Ischemic Attack.

In the absence of active management, the stroke risk after a transient ischemic attack (TIA) may be high. Almost 10 years ago, the results of the EXPRESS and SOS-TIA studies called for a more rapid ma...

White Matter Hyperintensities Improve Ischemic Stroke Recurrence Prediction.

Nearly one in 5 patients with ischemic stroke will invariably experience a second stroke within 5 years. Stroke risk stratification schemes based solely on clinical variables perform only modestly in ...

The ABC-stroke risk score was superior to the CHA2DS2-VASc score for predicting stroke in atrial fibrillation.
