Code Stroke is a system for the rapid identification, pre-notification and transport of acute ischemic stroke patients. The objective of this study was to define quality indicators and to compare treatment outcomes in hospitals where Code Stroke has been implemented and hospitals without the use of Code Stroke (control patients).
China has the largest burden of cerebrovascular disease in the world. About 60% to 80% of which are ischemic stroke. In recent years, stroke has replaced heart disease and tumor diseases as the first cause of death and disability in adult population. The primary purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of indobufen treatment in reducing the risk of a 3-month new stroke (any type of stroke, including ischemic stroke and hemorrhagic stroke) for patients with moderate/sev...
The purpose of this project is to follow first-ever- acute stroke patients from onset, one, two and four years post stroke and study the effect of two different approaches of exercises implemented the first year post-stroke.
The primary aim of this retrospective cohort study is to test the hypothesis that previous traumatization (long) before an ischemic stroke increases the degree of stroke-induced PTSD symptoms at 9-13 months after the stroke event. Secondary outcome parameters include quality of life and depression.
The Stroke Recovery Initiative is a nation-wide participant recruitment registry that connects people who have had a stroke with researchers who are working to develop new approaches to improve recovery after stroke.
The rapid diagnosis and treatment of acute ischemic stroke are critical in the reduction of morbidity, disability and stroke associated mortality Under-education about stroke may prevent people from recognizing symptoms early enough to seek immediate care. The studies reported on stroke patients managed in stroke center have shown that 39-42% of patients could not name any symptoms of stroke and 36% to 43% no risk factor of stroke. The stroke patients are therefore a populati...
The goal of this study is to evaluate left atrial structural and functional abnormalities in stroke of likely cardio-embolic origin and atherosclerotic stroke with cardiac MRI.
The purpose of the project is to investigate specific markers in blood samples from patients with stroke (ischemic or hemorrhagic). This could hopefully help in the early diagnostic to separate patients with ischemic stroke from those with hemorrhagic stroke as treatment are different and patients need to come quickly to the correct treatment site.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) with positive airway pressure starting shortly after acute ischemic stroke or high risk TIA (1) reduces recurrent stroke, acute coronary syndrome, and all-cause mortality 6 months after the event, and (2) improves stroke outcomes at 3 months in patients who experienced an ischemic stroke.
Stroke patients frequently suffer from stroke associated pneumonia. Pathophysiologically speaking, dysphagia and central nervous system (CNS)-injury induced immunosuppression largely contribute to the risk for pneumonia. In mouse models for stroke, the self-cleaning mechanisms of the lung are also affected by stroke, possibly further contributing to this risk. We designed a pilot-study to examine the structural and functional integrity of the self-cleaning mechanisms of ...
This is an observational study to address the following questions. 1. How many people develop stroke-shoulder pain within 3 days of stroke? 2. How many people have stroke shoulder pain at 8-10 weeks after stroke? 3. Does having stroke-shoulder pain within 3 days of stroke predict the likelihood of having stroke-shoulder pain at 8-10 weeks? 4. What are the best bedside examination tests to identify stroke-shoulder pain?
Get With The Guidelines-Stroke is a program for improving the quality of care for patients hospitalized with stroke by promoting consistent adherence to the latest evidence-based clinical practice guidelines.
Stroke survivors have higher risks of falling compared to other healthy non-stroke adults. Stroke patients' balance can be trained by Kinect-based training that enable user friendly and interactive training.
Approximately 11,000 veterans annually are hospitalized with a newly acquired incident stroke. Based on American Heart Association ratios of stroke incidence and prevalence, up to 80,000 veterans may be stroke survivors. The assessment of outcomes in stroke survivors is important for clinical practice and research, yet there is no consensus on the best measures of stroke outcome in either clinical practice or research. We have developed a new stroke-specific outcome measure, ...
This is a randomized controlled behavioral intervention trial to assess the efficacy of a brief intervention to increase stroke preparedness.
This is a randomized follow-up study after discharge from a stroke unit after a first stroke. The patients are randomized either to follow-up at a special out-patient stroke unit or with their general practitioners. The hypothesis is that follow-up with specialists is superior to follow-up with general practitioners. Endpoints are mortality, recurrent stroke and handicap measured with different scales.
The purpose of the study was to investigate the correlation between the nucleosome concentration and the rate of recanalization after thrombolysis. All patients were admitted to the Stroke Unit at the University Hospital Sainte-Anne where they received standard stroke care. The investigators included all patients treated by intravenous thrombolysis for anterior circulation stroke with vessel occlusion. Exclusion criteria were neoplasms, chronic inflammatory diseases and cytosta...
Although hyperlipidemia is not always the risk factor of stroke, inhibition of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A(HMG-CoA) reductase can decrease the incidence of stroke in the patient with ischemic heart disease. The neuroprotective mechanism beyond cholesterol lowering should be expected to attenuate inflammation and atherosclerosis. The present study hypothesizes if pravastatin prevents recurrent stroke in the ischemic stroke patients with safety.
TELECAST is a prospective single-center study evaluating guideline-based acute ischemic stroke care at an Acute Stroke Ready Hospital (ASRH) pre- and post-initiation of a specialist telestroke inpatient rounding service. TELECAST will study the following clinical endpoints: diagnostic stroke evaluation, secondary stroke prevention, health screening and evaluation, stroke education, inpatient complications, and stroke recurrence rates. Additional relevant non-clinical data will ...
This research project will evaluate the relationship between cardiovascular risk factors, degrees of physical and mental activity prior to the stroke, brain tissue integrity, post-stroke community participation and neurological recovery after the stroke. We will recruit and study a biracial cohort, gaining insight into the possible mechanisms that explain why the adverse risk profile, which is more commonly present in African-Americans than non-Hispanic Whites in the stroke bel...
The purpose of this study is to find the genes that increase the risk of developing an ischemic stroke using DNA samples collected from concordant (stroke-affected) sibling pairs.
Depression is one of the important psychiatric sequelae after stroke. The prevalence of post stroke depression (PSD) is approximately 20-40%. Depression comorbid with stroke has been found to be associated with increased disability, cognitive function decline, poorer rehabilitation outcome and higher mortality rate.We are going to conduct a trial of prevention of psot stroke depression by prescribing milnacipran in advance.
The link between post-stroke pathways and patient sequelae have not yet been clearly defined. The main purpose is to identify the post-stroke life pathways components associated with sequalae at 3 months and 1 year after the acute stroke episode.
CereDx has early proof of concept clinical data of a multi-omic peripheral blood biomarker profile that can be used to determine stroke from no stroke in the emergency setting. The objective of this observational cohort clinical study is to determine the clinical utility of this multi-omic biomarker profile. Primary Study Aims: 1. The diagnostic tests characteristics of a multi-omic biomarker diagnostic for stroke (ischemic stroke, transient ischemic attack (TIA)...
The primary goal of this project is to carry out a trial comparing pre-hospital diagnosis and treatment of patients with stroke symptoms using a Mobile Stroke Unit (MSU) with subsequent transfer to a Comprehensive Stroke Center (CSC) Emergency Department (ED) for further management, to standard pre-hospital triage and transport by Emergency Medical Services (EMS) to a CSC ED for evaluation and treatment (Standard Management-SM).
