This is a pivotal phase study of up to 120 subjects and 15 clinical sites. All subjects are implanted with the Vivistim System® and then randomized to either study treatment or active-con...
Patients admitted to the in-patient rehabilitation center with a diagnosis of stroke will be recruited into the study. The participants will wear two activity monitors (one commercial grad...
The purpose of this study is to compare two cushioning materials (a gel mattress and an egg-crate foam mattress) placed beneath patients undergoing gynecologic surgery to prevent patients ...
As the population ages and the number of stroke survivors increases, information is needed to determine the best way of providing home care services for rehabilitation to stroke survivors ...
Stroke is the leading cause of disability worldwide. Of the annual incidence of stroke (~750,000) in the USA about 60% fail to recover arm and hand use contributing to reduced quality of l...
We developed and tested a triage system to accelerate the interpretation of stroke head computed tomographies (CTs), with the goal of optimizing the time available for acute stroke therapy.
Novel neuroprotective therapies are desperately needed to improve neuronal recovery after ischemic stroke and extend the therapeutic window or offset some of the adverse effects of tissue-type plasmin...
In Orange County, California, patients with suspected acute stroke are taken to stroke neurology receiving centers that are designated by County Emergency Medical Services authorities as either hubs o...
A risk scoring system for predicting ischemic stroke incidence may identify type 2 diabetes patients at high risk for ischemic stroke who can benefit from preventive intervention programs. Such a risk...
Heart disease and stroke remain among the leading causes of death nationally. We examined whether differences in recent trends in heart disease, stroke, and total mortality exist in the U.S. and Kaise...
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.
A vascular anomaly composed of a collection of large, thin walled tortuous VEINS that can occur in any part of the central nervous system but lack intervening nervous tissue. Familial occurrence is common and has been associated with a number of genes mapped to 7q, 7p and 3q. Clinical features include SEIZURES; HEADACHE; STROKE; and progressive neurological deficit.
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.
