Despite the use of validated prehospital stroke scales, stroke mimics are frequent among patients transported by Emergency Medical Services to the Emergency Department. We aimed to describe the freque...
Tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) is administered to patients with suspected ischemic stroke to improve blood flow to the brain In rare cases, patients present with complaints of stroke symptoms that...
Acute ischaemic stroke represents the most common cause of new sudden neurological deficit, but other diseases mimicking stroke happen in about one-third of the cases. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)...
The actions and responses of the hospital personnel during acute stroke care in the emergency department (ED) may differ according to the severity of a patient's stroke symptoms. We investigated wheth...
Significant improvement of stroke symptoms may occur in acute stroke patients due to large artery occlusion (LAO) treated with intravenous thrombolysis (IVT). Directly proceeding with endovascular thr...
Stroke is caused by sudden changes in blood flow in the brain. This can be fatal or can result in permanent disability. A fast diagnosis is essential to initiate effective interventions an...
The clinical and radiological data of patients with an acute ischemic stroke treated with intravenous thrombolysis (IVT) or intraarterial thrombolysis (IAT) in a Swiss stroke unit are asse...
This study focuses on if low dose CT without intravenous contrast has a high enough specificity and sensitivity for acute diverticulitis that it can be used as the primary diagnostic metho...
This is a biomedical, single-center, and prospective study of a consecutive patients cohort in acute ischemic stroke with carotid plaque.
The purpose of this trial is to determine if intravenous administration of the metal ion trapping agent DP-b99 within 1-9 hours of acute ischemic stroke onset, and then for 3 additional da...
A condition caused by the failure of body to dissipate heat in an excessively hot environment or during PHYSICAL EXERTION in a hot environment. Contrast to HEAT EXHAUSTION, the body temperature in heat stroke patient is dangerously high with red, hot skin accompanied by DELUSIONS; CONVULSIONS; or COMA. It can be a life-threatening emergency and is most common in infants and the elderly.
A water-soluble radiographic contrast media for cholecystography and intravenous cholangiography.
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.
Immunoglobulin preparations used in intravenous infusion, containing primarily IMMUNOGLOBULIN G. They are used to treat a variety of diseases associated with decreased or abnormal immunoglobulin levels including pediatric AIDS; primary HYPERGAMMAGLOBULINEMIA; SCID; CYTOMEGALOVIRUS infections in transplant recipients, LYMPHOCYTIC LEUKEMIA, CHRONIC; Kawasaki syndrome, infection in neonates, and IDIOPATHIC THROMBOCYTOPENIC PURPURA.
A condition characterized by abnormal posturing of the limbs that is associated with injury to the brainstem. This may occur as a clinical manifestation or induced experimentally in animals. The extensor reflexes are exaggerated leading to rigid extension of the limbs accompanied by hyperreflexia and opisthotonus. This condition is usually caused by lesions which occur in the region of the brainstem that lies between the red nuclei and the vestibular nuclei. In contrast, decorticate rigidity is characterized by flexion of the elbows and wrists with extension of the legs and feet. The causative lesion for this condition is located above the red nuclei and usually consists of diffuse cerebral damage. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p358)
