β(S) globin gene haplotype and the stroke risk among Egyptian children with sickle cell disease. Hematology. 2017 Nov 20;:1-6 Authors: Abou-Elew HH, Youssry I, Hefny S, Hashem RH, Fouad N, Zayed RA Abstract BACKGROUND AND AIM OF WORK: Sickle cell disease (SCD) is an inherited disease of the beta globin gene. The β(S) globin gene haplotypes are Senegal, Benin, Bantu, Cameroon, Arab-Indian and atypical haplotypes. In SCD, stroke is a life-threatening event in both adults and children. In light of paucity of studies on β(S) globin gene haplotypes in Egypt, we aimed to determine β(S) gl...

By reducing out-of-pocket costs for preventive treatment, the Affordable Care Act appears to have encouraged more people to have health screenings related to their cardiovascular health,a UCLA study found. Comparing figures from 2006 through 2013, researchers found that more people were screened for diabetes, high cholesterol, cigarette use and high blood pressure — all risk factors for heart disease — after the ACA was implemented than before.But the research, published in the peer-reviewed American Journal of Managed Care, also revealed a disparity between men and women in one key area. Although more men who ...

This study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of two oral health promotion (OHP) programmes to reduce dental plaque levels following stroke. A multi‐centre randomised clinical control trial was conducted among patients hospitalised following stroke in Malaysia. Patients were randomly allocated to two OHP groups: (i) control group who received the conventional method for plaque control—daily manual tooth brushing with a standardised commercial toothpaste, (ii) test group—who received an intense method for plaque control—daily powered tooth brushing with 1% Chlorhexidine gel. Oral health assessments were...

Abstract A patient presented with symptoms of decompensated heart failure 2 months after percutaneous mitral valve (MV) repair. Echocardiography demonstrated impaired left ventricular function with elevated MV pressure gradients and pulmonary pressures during rapid atrial fibrillation. Heart rate control was achieved by implantation of a biventricular pacemaker with subsequent His‐bundle ablation because atrial fibrillation was refractory to medical treatment. During biventricular pacing at different rates (50–110 b.p.m.), heart rate correlated positively with both MV mean pressure gradient and global lon...

Conclusions: Within limitations of using the HADS-D as a referent criterion, the present results provide justification for further development of the HRQOLISP-E as the first stroke-specific screening tool for depression. PMID: 29158623 [PubMed - in process]

This study aimed to determine the prevalence of ICS in a single center registry from Turkey. Materials and methods: We reviewed the charts of 619 patients with acute ischemic stroke. ICS was defined as any ICS> 50% on cerebrovascular imaging. The demographic data, risk factors, NIHSS scores and C reactive protein level at admission, mortality in hospital, recurrent stroke, and mRS in the follow-up period were recorded. Results: A total of 72 (11.6%) patients with ICS (45 males (62.5%); mean age 68.3 ± 12.6 years) were included. Sixty-seven patients (10.8%) had symptomatic ICS and 44 patients (7.1%) had ICS withou...
