A Clinical Trial to Assess the Acute Safety and Functional Outcome and Recovery After STROKE: The FIRST Trial

2014-08-27 03:14:59 | BioPortfolio


Current literature has only limited information on the natural history of acute ischemic stroke from large vessel occlusion in a stroke cohort who presents within 8 hours from symptom onset, particularly on 90 day functional outcome as defined by the mRS. Data from this trial will advance our knowledge on this important topic and may serve as a bench mark for future trials

Circulating Troponin I Level in Patients with Acute Ischemic Stroke.

Cardiac troponin levels in the blood are an important biomarker of acute coronary events, but may also be elevated in the context of acute ischemic stroke without an obvious concurrent myocardial insu...

Current Endovascular Approach to the Management of Acute Ischemic Stroke.

Estimation of seizures prevalence in ischemic strokes after thrombolytic therapy.

Post stroke seizures are a complication that occur in 5-20% of acute ischemic stroke (AIS) patients, cause a reduction in quality of life and a greater burden on the health system. There is not enough...

Comparative Safety and Efficacy of Modified TICI 2b and TICI 3 Reperfusion in Acute Ischemic Strokes Treated With Mechanical Thrombectomy.

Mechanical thrombectomy (MT) is the current standard of care for acute ischemic stroke (AIS) patients with emergent large-vessel occlusions (ELVO). Successful reperfusion of ELVO is traditionally defi...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The application of repeated, brief periods of vascular occlusion at the onset of REPERFUSION to reduce REPERFUSION INJURY that follows a prolonged ischemic event. The techniques are similar to ISCHEMIC PRECONDITIONING but the time of application is after the ischemic event instead of before.

The minimum acceptable patient care, based on statutes, court decisions, policies, or professional guidelines.

A drug combination of aspirin and dipyridamole that functions as a PLATELET AGGREGATION INHIBITOR, used to prevent THROMBOSIS and STROKE in TRANSIENT ISCHEMIC ATTACK patients.

Ischemic injury to the OPTIC NERVE which usually affects the OPTIC DISK (optic neuropathy, anterior ischemic) and less frequently the retrobulbar portion of the nerve (optic neuropathy, posterior ischemic). The injury results from occlusion of arterial blood supply which may result from TEMPORAL ARTERITIS; ATHEROSCLEROSIS; COLLAGEN DISEASES; EMBOLISM; DIABETES MELLITUS; and other conditions. The disease primarily occurs in the sixth decade or later and presents with the sudden onset of painless and usually severe monocular visual loss. Anterior ischemic optic neuropathy also features optic disk edema with microhemorrhages. The optic disk appears normal in posterior ischemic optic neuropathy.
