Clinical Trials [1732 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Study of Robot-assisted Arm Therapy for Acute Stroke Patients

The purpose of this study is to compare standard occupational therapy to a combination of conventional (standard) and robotic therapy. The Reo Go device will provide robotic therapy that g...

Robotic Training for Stroke Neurorehabilitation

The overall goal is to further develop a robotic exoskeleton for neurorehabilitation of arm function after stroke. The investigators previously developed a novel training protocol that com...

Assessment of a Upper Limb Robotic Device in Stroke Patients

The objectives of this phase II clinical study are: evaluate the efficacy, safety, patient adeherence and clinical applicability of a new robotic device for patients with stroke at a physi...

Robotic Assisted Upper-Limb Neurorehabilitation in Stroke Patients

This study will compare robotic training with usual care and intensive comparison therapy to attempt to improve upper extremity function.

Rehabilitation of the Stroke Hand at Home

The purpose of this research is to evaluate a therapy delivery system for stroke patients that provide accessible, affordable stroke care. User-friendly home therapy robots and a telerehab...

Influence of beta-blocker therapy on the risk of infections and death in patients at high risk for stroke induced immunodepression.

Stroke-induced immunodepression is a well characterized complication of acute ischemic stroke. In experimental studies beta-blocker therapy reversed stroke-induced immunodepression, reduced infection ...

Relevance of standard intravenous thrombolysis in endovascular stroke therapy of a tertiary stroke center.

The majority of patients undergoing endovascular stroke treatment (EST) in randomized controlled trials received additional systemic thrombolysis ("combination or bridging therapy (C/BT)"). Neverthele...

A Network-Wide Stroke Team Program Reduces Time to Treatment for Endovascular Stroke Therapy in a Regional Stroke-Network.

Driven by the positive results of randomized, controlled trials of endovascular stroke therapies (EVT) in stroke patients with large vessel occlusion, different approaches to speed up the workflow for...

Closure of patent foramen ovale or medical therapy alone for secondary prevention of cryptogenic cerebrovascular events.

About one-third of ischemic stroke are cryptogenic. Paradoxical embolism through patent foramen ovale (PFO) has been identified as a possible cause of cryptogenic stroke. Therefore, PFO closure has be...

Transcatheter Closure of Patent Foramen Ovale versus Medical Therapy after Cryptogenic Stroke: A Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials.

Patent foramen ovale (PFO) with atrial septal aneurysm is suggested as an important potential source for cryptogenic strokes. Percutaneous PFO closure to reduce the recurrence of stroke compared to me...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Restoration of functions to the maximum degree possible in a person or persons suffering from a stroke.

Stroke caused by lacunar infarction or other small vessel diseases of the brain. It features hemiparesis (see PARESIS), hemisensory, or hemisensory motor loss.

Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.

A group of pathological conditions characterized by sudden, non-convulsive loss of neurological function due to BRAIN ISCHEMIA or INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGES. Stroke is classified by the type of tissue NECROSIS, such as the anatomic location, vasculature involved, etiology, age of the affected individual, and hemorrhagic vs. non-hemorrhagic nature. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp777-810)

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.
