This study examined the influence of acute phase post-stroke depression (PSD) on various functional outcomes over 1 year after stroke. PSD was diagnosed at 2 weeks after stroke using the Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview and functional outcomes were assessed via the National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale, the Barthel Index, and the Mini-Mental State Examination at 2 weeks and 1 year. Acute phase PSD was an independent predictor of poor functional outcomes during both the acute and chronic phases. Considering the negative impact of PSD on stroke outcomes, identification of acute phase PSD is important for improving functional outcomes.

In subacute stroke patients, dynamic time series data of brain imaging and motor function measurement were obtained from 7 days to 6 months (total 9 times) after stroke onset
Undernutrition after stroke is frequent and is due to cognitive impairment, visuospatial perceptive deficits, hemiparesis, depression and dysphagia. The impact of intensive nutritional sup...
Management of acutely elevated blood pressure during the early phase of ischemic stroke remains controversial. In patients treated with IV-tPA, the risk of ICH is closely related to the BP...
A morpholine and thiophene derivative that functions as a FACTOR XA INHIBITOR and is used in the treatment and prevention of DEEP-VEIN THROMBOSIS and PULMONARY EMBOLISM. It is also used for the prevention of STROKE and systemic embolization in patients with non-valvular ATRIAL FIBRILLATION, and for the prevention of atherothrombotic events in patients after an ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME.
Proteins that are secreted into the blood in increased or decreased quantities by hepatocytes in response to trauma, inflammation, or disease. These proteins can serve as inhibitors or mediators of the inflammatory processes. Certain acute-phase proteins have been used to diagnose and follow the course of diseases or as tumor markers.
Comparative studies to verify the effectiveness of diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic drugs, devices, or techniques determined in phase II studies. During these trials, patients are monitored closely by physicians to identify any adverse reactions from long-term use. These studies are performed on groups of patients large enough to identify clinically significant responses and usually last about three years. This concept includes phase III studies conducted in both the U.S. and in other countries.
Decompression external to the body, most often the slow lessening of external pressure on the whole body (especially in caisson workers, deep sea divers, and persons who ascend to great heights) to prevent DECOMPRESSION SICKNESS. It includes also sudden accidental decompression, but not surgical (local) decompression or decompression applied through body openings.
Depression in POSTPARTUM WOMEN, usually within four weeks after giving birth (PARTURITION). The degree of depression ranges from mild transient depression to neurotic or psychotic depressive disorders. (From DSM-IV, p386)
