Effects of High-Frequency Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Combined with Task-Oriented Mirror Therapy Training on Hand Rehabilitation of Acute Stroke Patients.

Effects of High-Frequency Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Combined with Task-Oriented Mirror Therapy Training on Hand Rehabilitation of Acute Stroke Patients. Med Sci Monit. 2018 Feb 06;24:743-750 Authors: Kim J, Yim J Abstract BACKGROUND Impairments of hand function make it difficult to perform daily life activities and to return to work. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of high-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (HF-rTMS) combined with task-oriented mirror therapy (TOMT) on hand rehabilitation in acute stroke patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS Twenty subacute stroke patients in the initial stages (

Reed, Henry E. Rice, Elisabeth T. Tracy, Obinna O. AdibeAbstractBackgroundBlunt cerebrovascular injury (BCVI) is a rare consequence of blunt trauma. There appears to be benefit to an aggressive approach to screening for BCVI due to catastrophic sequelae of unrecognized injury. However, screening for BCVI carries extensive cost and oncologic risk to young patients. Foundational BCVI studies examined adults primarily, leaving questi...

CONCLUSION: In LAO patients, directly proceeding EVT following IVT may not be hesitated. In addition, while LAO patients with incomplete IV-tPA treatment responses result in transient improvement of neurological symptoms but later reversed, EVT may be a potential rescue therapy in carefully selected patients.

DiscussionThis systematic review aims to clarify whether BPV is associated with elevated risk for dementia, cognitive impairment, and cognitive function. An evaluation of the etiological links between BPV with incident dementia might inform evidence-based clinical practice and policy concerning blood pressure measurement and hypertension management. The review will identify sources of heterogeneity and may inform decisions on whether it is feasible and desirable to proceed with an individual participant data meta-analysis.Systematic review registrationPROSPEROCRD42017081977

This study determines the association between PF4-H Ab and cardiovascular events including coronary artery disease (CAD), ischemic stroke (IS), and native arteriovenous fistula thrombosis (AVFT), in a longitudinal 7-year follow-up.Patients and methods84 hemodialysis patients were enrolled. Data collection included chart reviews and assessments of laboratory records. PF4-H Ab was evaluated by ELISA and a titer  ≥ 0.4 was defined to have PF4-H Ab.Results30 patients were PF4-H Ab positive, 30 patients had CAD, 29 patients had IS, and 43 patients had AVFT. In Cox proportional hazard regression analysis, PF4-H ...
