CONCLUSIONS: MS was significantly associated with IMT and the presence of carotid plaque and with positively increased risks of MI, stroke, and CVD mortality independent of CVD risk factors in older Chinese adults. PMID: 31826385 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS: Mortality and CRP levels were statistically significantly higher in the advanced dementia group not fed via PEG. The mortality and rate of complications in the dementia group were similar to those in the stroke group. Feeding with PEG-tubes is a proper and preferable method for advanced dementia patients.

CONCLUSIONS: Different performed randomized clinical trials (RCT) show that VRT safely facilitates in a statistically significant way motor and functional recovery of upper limb, gait, balance, quality of life related to health, and activities of daily living, together with conventional therapy, but have no clearly demonstrated overall superiority to conventional therapy. In this regard, underlying specific mechanisms remain elusive at this stage. Future RCT should define the good responder stroke patient profile based on the VRT used in conjunction with conventional therapy, allowing the generation of neurorehabilitation ...
