Animal and clinical studies suggest complementary effects of magnesium and high-dose pyridoxine (vitamin B6) on stress reduction. This is the first randomized trial evaluating the effects of combined magnesium and vitamin B6 supplementation on stress in a stressed population with low magnesemia using a validated measure of perceived stress.
Mobile stroke units offer improved time to administration of thrombolytics for ischemic stroke patients. Acquisition of intravenous (IV) access, however, can be challenging in the pre-hospital environment leading to treatment delays. Intraosseous (IO) access is commonly used in the pre-hospital setting for a variety of conditions and may serve as a viable means for tPA (tissue plasminogen activator) administration. We describe 3 cases in which tPA was administered via IO access on a mobile stroke unit as pa...
Occupational therapy, physiotherapy and speech and language therapy are central to rehabilitation after a stroke. The UK has introduced an audited performance target: that 45 min of each therapy should be provided to patients deemed appropriate. We sought to understand how this has influenced delivery of stroke unit therapy.
Previous in vitro and in vivo studies indicate that enzymes that synthesize and metabolize vitamin D are magnesium dependent. Recent observational studies found that magnesium intake significantly interacted with vitamin D in relation to vitamin D status and risk of mortality. According to NHANES, 79% of US adults do not meet their Recommended Dietary Allowance of magnesium.
Tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) is the only FDA approved thrombolytic drug for acute ischemic stroke but concerns regarding its limitations remain. Here, we developed a new strategy by incorporating tPA into porous magnetic iron oxide (FeO)-microrods (tPA-MRs) for targeted thrombolytic therapy in ischemic stroke induced by distal middle cerebral artery occlusion. We showed that intra-arterial injection of tPA-MRs could target the cerebral blood clot in vivo under the guidance of an external magnet, where...
Introduction Ischemic stroke is becoming a primary cause of disability and death worldwide. To date, therapeutic options remain limited focusing on mechanical thrombolysis or administration of thrombolytic agents. However, these therapies do not promote neuroprotection and neuro-restoration of the ischemic area of the brain. Areas Covered This review highlights the option of minimal invasive, intra-arterial, administration of biological agents for stroke therapy. The authors provide an update of all availab...
Stroke occurrence while on antiplatelet therapy, i.e., a breakthrough stroke, is often conveniently attributed to antiplatelet resistance. However, undetected paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF) may underlie breakthrough strokes. We hypothesized that a breakthrough stroke may be a clinical marker for patients at risk of having AF detected after stroke (AFDAS).
Persistent physical activity is important to maintain motor function across all stages after stroke.
Despite the prognostic significance of mineral and bone disorders in patients undergoing hemodialysis, very few studies have focused on magnesium metabolism in this population. Nephrologists have paid much attention to hypermagnesemia, which is sometimes caused by magnesium administration, but the clinical implication of low magnesium has been largely overlooked. Recently, several cohort studies have reported that lower serum magnesium levels are associated with an increased risk of all-cause and cardiovasc...
Ischemic stroke with large-vessel occlusion can be treated with alteplase and/or endovascular therapy; however, the administration of each treatment is time sensitive.
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia among adults. Despite the proven advantages in primary and secondary stroke prevention in patients with AF, oral anticoagulation (OAC) therapy is still underused in many countries. In this study, we investigated the incidence of AF-related ischemic stroke over the past decade in South Korea and trends of preventive antithrombotic therapy use before stroke in a nationwide cohort.
The mean of three trials is commonly employed to report measures of muscle strength after a stroke. However, only a single trial showed to provide consistent and reliable results regarding dynamometric measures of grip, pinch, and trunk strength in individuals with stroke. Nevertheless, there were not found any studies that investigated whether only a single trial could also be used for the assessment of strength of the upper and lower-limb muscles.
The Quality in Acute Stroke Care Trial implemented nurse-initiated protocols to manage fever, hyperglycaemia and swallowing (Fever, Sugar, Swallow clinical protocols) achieving a 16% absolute improvement in death and dependency 90-day post-stroke.
This study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) therapy in patients with urinary incontinence after stroke (UIAS).
We aimed to assess the feasibility and safety of fast-track hospitalizations in a selected cohort of patients with stroke.
Despite ample clinical trial data demonstrating that oral anticoagulation (OAC) treatment is highly effective in reducing stroke for patients with atrial fibrillation (AF), OAC treatment remains underutilized in current clinical practice. Targeting hospitalist and emergency department providers with electronic decision support represents a potential quality improvement opportunity in the use of OAC medication in AF patients.
Use of prehospital stroke scales may enhance stroke detection and improve treatment rates and delays. Current scales, however, may lack detection accuracy. As such, we examined if coordination and diplopia (Balance and Eyes) assessments increase the accuracy of the Face-Arms-Speech-Time (FAST) scale in a multi-site prospective study of emergency response activations for presumed stroke.
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a common cardiac arrhythmia that increases the risk of stroke. Medical therapy for decreasing stroke risk involves anticoagulation, which may increase bleeding risk for certain patients. In determining the optimal therapy for stroke prevention for patients with AF, clinicians use tools with various clinical, imaging and patient characteristics to weigh stroke risk against therapy-associated bleeding risk.
Intrapartum magnesium sulphate administration is recommended for fetal neuroprotection in women with imminent very preterm birth. However, previous studies have not included or separately analyzed the outcomes of pregnancies with fetal growth restriction that were treated with intrapartum magnesium sulphate.
Hypomagnesemia is a common side effect of panitumumab. The effect of magnesium-containing supplement as a laxative and concomitant antacid (proton pump inhibitor and histamine H antagonist) administration on panitumumab-induced hypomagnesemia was retrospectively investigated.
The lack of effective therapies mandates the development of new treatment strategies for ischemic stroke. The NR2B9c peptide can prevent N-Methyl-D-aspartate receptor (NMDAR)-mediated neurotoxicity induced by ischemia without affecting essential NMDAR activity and brings hope for stroke therapy. However, it is very difficult for NR2B9c to cross by itself the blood-brain barrier (BBB) and the neuron membrane. To provide a suitable delivery for unleashing the therapeutic potential of NR2B9c, in consideration ...
This study aimed to investigate the feasibility and potential effectiveness of mirror-aided cross-education compared to cross-education alone in post-stroke upper limb recovery.
An international cluster-randomized quality improvement trial to increase the adherence to evidence-based therapies for acute ischemic stroke and transient ischemic attack patients: Rationale and design of the BRIDGE STROKE Trial.
Translating evidence into clinical practice in the management of acute ischemic stroke (AIS) and transient ischemic attack (TIA) is challenging especially in low- and middle-income countries.
Emergency medical services are an important part of acute stroke management. We devised a prehospital stroke scale, the TOYOTA prehospital stroke scale for tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA) intravenous therapy (TOPSPIN) for triaging patients with ischemic stroke and especial indications for intravenous t-PA therapy in December 2006; this scale comprises 5 items including consciousness, atrial fibrillation, language disorder, disturbance of the upper extremities, and disturbance of the lower extremities. T...
Clinical trials regarding the antishivering effect of perioperative magnesium have produced inconsistent results. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis with Trial Sequential Analysis to evaluate the effect of perioperative magnesium on prevention of shivering.
