Diagnosis of stroke and understanding the mechanism of stroke is critical to implement optimal treatment. RNA expressed in peripheral blood cells is emerging as a precision biomarker to aid in stroke diagnosis and prediction of stroke cause. In this review, we summarize available data regarding the role of RNA to predict stroke, the rationale for these changes, and a discussion of novel mechanistic insight and clinical applications.
Dysmenorrhea and stroke are health problems affecting women worldwide in their day-to-day lives; however, there is limited knowledge of the stroke risk in women with dysmenorrhea, and there have been no studies assessing the specific distribution of stroke subtypes. This case-control study assessed stroke subtypes by age and the role of comorbidities in women with dysmenorrhea.
: Chronic pain is common following stroke, yet its characteristics are poorly understood.: To characterize the beliefs and perceptions of people with stroke who experience chronic pain and compare these to a non-stroke population with chronic pain.: An online survey of the Pain Beliefs and Perceptions Inventory for stroke and non-stroke individuals with chronic pain. Pain beliefs and perceptions, including perceived causes of pain, were compared across the two groups.: A total of 223 participants completed ...
As part of a program of work to develop an educational strategy and implementation plan for the World Stroke Organization, we conducted a survey of World Stroke Organization members (health professionals, laypersons (Stroke Support Organizations)) to identify their potential educational needs.
Although pediatric stroke is rare, it is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in children. The diagnosis of stroke is often delayed in children, which can contribute to death and disability. Management of pediatric stroke is challenging because there are few data to support the efficacy of interventions, and management is based on society guidelines and expert opinion, as well as extrapolation from adult stroke management. This issue reviews the most common causes of pediatric stroke, provides guidanc...
Stroke population-based studies in the same setting comparing time trends of rates are a gold standard method to determine the primary prevention status of stroke. Twelve years ago, we measured the stroke incidence and mortality in Matão city, Southeast of Brazil.
Tau is a protein mainly expressed in adult human brain. It plays important roles both in neurodegenerative diseases and stroke. Stroke is an important cause of adult death and disability, ischemic stroke almost account for 80% in all cases. Abundant studies have proven that the increase of dysfunctional tau may act as a vital factor in pathological changes after ischemic stroke. However, the relationship between tau and ischemic stroke remains ununified. Based on present studies, we firstly introduced the s...
The benefit of statins on stroke incidence is well known. However, data on the relationship between pre- and post-stroke statin use, recurrence, and survival outcomes are limited. We aim to investigate the short- and long-term relationships between statin prescription, stroke recurrence, and survival in patients with first-ever ischemic stroke.
Stroke is uncommon among young adults. However, the incidence of stroke among young women increases with pregnancy during peripartum and postpartum periods. The relative risk of suffering from haemorrhagic stroke was three times higher than ischemic stroke during these periods when compared with antenatal period. Neuroimaging should be prioritized in order to establish diagnosis and to facilitate treatment in a patient with suspected acute stroke. Prophylaxic anticoagulants should be used in high risk patie...
There is a considerable literature on arm/hand dysfunction post stroke, but little information on the participants' opinions about perceived and desired arm/hand strength, recovery, and function.
Little is known about any potential sex disparities in access to mechanical thrombectomy (MT), including before the pivotal clinical trials establishing MT as a standard of care for acute ischemic stroke management.
In addition to lowering stroke risk, warfarin use is also associated with reduced stroke severity in patients with atrial fibrillation and acute ischaemic stroke. We sought to determine whether the effect of non-vitamin K oral anticoagulants (NOACs), compared to warfarin, differed by stroke severity.
Urinary tract infection (UTI) is one of the most common infections seen in patients hospitalized for acute stroke, resulting in greater utilization of hospital resources in addition to patient discomfort. Although post-stroke infections (PSIs) are commonly referenced for interference with stroke recovery as well as associations with worse clinical outcome, factors associated specifically with UTI after stroke remain unclear.
The primary objective of this study was to identify the specific predictors of early and late stroke in patients after open heart surgery. Secondary outcomes included (a) risk factors for perioperative stroke, (b) anatomic location of stroke according to time of presentation, and (c) the impact of stroke on operative mortality.
Little attention has been paid to the pathogenesis of in-hospital stroke, despite poor outcomes and a longer time from stroke onset to treatment. We studied the pathophysiology and biomarkers for detecting patients who progress to in-hospital ischemic stroke (IHS).
A recurrent stroke increases the rates of mortality and morbidity after an initial stroke. There is, however, a dearth of data on the prevalence of recurrent stroke in Nigeria.
Movement disorders including hemichorea-hemiballism as the initial presentation of an acute ischemic stroke are uncommon. Structures outside of the deep subcortical areas such as the subthalamic nucleus or basal ganglia are rarely involved.
In-hospital strokes account for up to nearly 1 in 5 strokes. Clinical outcomes, such as length of stay, disability, and mortality are worse for in-hospital strokes than for those that occur in the community. For a variety of reasons, stroke can be more difficult to recognize and treat in hospitalized patients. Earlier recognition of stroke results in better clinical outcomes, presumably due to faster diagnosis and subsequently, prompt treatment.
A coordinated stroke rehabilitation care team is considered optimal for supporting stroke survivors from diagnosis to recovery. Despite this recognition, many stroke survivors cannot access essential rehabilitation services. Furthermore, there is a lack of understanding of stroke patients' and their caregivers' rehabilitation needs and wishes. We sought to gain insight into healthcare and social structures from the perspective of patients and caregivers that can better support long-term stroke recovery.
Proteinuria has emerged as an important vascular risk factor for adverse cardiovascular events including stroke. Hypertension has been proposed as the principal confounder of this relationship but its role has not been systematically examined.
Stroke is a common cause of adult-onset epilepsy (post-stroke epilepsy, PSE). Despite an increasing awareness, there is a concern for under-diagnosis of the condition. We aimed to study the adherence to the latest updated epilepsy definition, as well as the incidence and diagnosis of PSE in an ischemic stroke-cohort admitted to a tertiary University Hospital.
Stroke has become the second most common cause of death. Several biomarkers have been detected in the peripheral blood from stroke patients, but none has found a place in clinical practice. Cell-free DNA (cf-DNA) liberated into the blood soon after the onset of stroke might be useful for assessing disease severity and prognosis.
SSA has a high stroke incidence and post-stroke morbidity. An inexpensive pharmacological treatment for stroke recovery would be beneficial to patients in the region. Fluoxetine, currently on the World Health Organization Essential Medicines List, holds promise as a treatment for motor recovery after ischemic stroke, but its effectiveness is controversial and untested in this context in SSA.
Due to substantial improvements in prevention and therapy, stroke incidence and mortality rates have decreased during the last decades, but evidence is still lacking on whether all socioeconomic groups benefited equally and how the length of life affected by stroke developed over time. Our study investigates time trends in stroke-free life years and life years affected by stroke. Special emphasis is given to the question whether trends differ between income groups, leading to decreasing or increasing social...
