Functional Activation-Informed Structural Changes during Stroke Recovery: A Longitudinal MRI Study.

Conclusion: This study demonstrated that combining the stroke-induced functional reorganization and structural change provided new insights into the underlying innate plasticity process during stroke recovery. Significance: This study proposed a new approach to integrate functional and structural information for investigating the innate plasticity after stroke. PMID: 29204440 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSION: Isolated BAD may cause variable clinical manifestations and the outcome can be favorable. Application of different and advanced imaging studies with serial image follow-up are useful to confirm the diagnosis. PMID: 29468623 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSION: Nutritional status was poor in stroke patients across all stroke severities within weeks. Further longitudinal outcome studies to identify the poor outcome and the evolution of nutritional status are warranted. PMID: 29468620 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSION: This review may be helpful for researchers, diabetic patient and decision makers in the field of ethnobotanical sciences. These efforts may also provide treatment to everyone and focus on the role of traditional novel medicine plants that have anti-diabetic abilities. PMID: 29473531 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Disruption of the blood‐brain barrier (BBB) following cerebral ischemia is closely related to the infiltration of peripheral cells into the brain, progression of lesion formation, and clinical exacerbation. However, the mechanism that regulates BBB integrity, especially after permanent ischemia, remains unclear. Here, we present evidence that astrocytic N‐myc downstream‐regulated gene 2 (NDRG2), a differentiation‐ and stress‐associated molecule, may function as a modulator of BBB permeability following ischemic stroke, using a mouse model of permanent cerebral ischemia. Immunohistological analysis showed...

Right heart failure is a potentially devastating complication of mechanical circulatory support, occurring at a rate of 0.49 events per 100 patient-months.1 Pulmonary vasodilators such as phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors (PDE5i) have been frequently used to unload the right ventricle in left ventricular assist device (LVAD) patients, but there is scant evidence to support this practice.2,3 The purpose of this analysis is to provide additional data regarding the safety and efficacy of the PDE5i sildenafil in a real world population of patients supported with LVADs at Washington University in St. Louis. Sildenafil use was not ...

CONCLUSION: Participants felt capable of increasing physical activity but fatigue was often perceived as a barrier to physical activity. This needs to be considered when encouraging stroke survivors to be more active. PMID: 29465097 [PubMed - in process]
