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 (
A growing number of studies suggest that getting a handle on a few key risk factors can bring type 2 diabetes under control. Lowering blood sugar, for instance, reduces the risk of additional health problems, such as heart disease and stroke related to the disease. But most of these studies have focused on studying one risk factor — like blood sugar, cholesterol or blood pressure — at a time. In a new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, researchers analyzed what happens to death rates and other health problems when people control up to five known risk factors for type 2 diabetes. The study ...
The expert who once coined the rule 'Time is brain!' uses a model to argue that there is also a need to consider the circulation pattern in the brain.
Authors: Wegehaupt FJ, Schleich J, Hamza B, Wiedemeier D, Attin T Abstract We compared the prevention of erosive and erosive/abrasive enamel loss by a medical minerals gel system (R.O.C.S.) to that by an anti-erosive toothpaste. Seventy-two bovine enamel samples were randomly allocated to six groups (E1–E3 and EA1–EA3; n=12). Per day, samples were eroded (2 min) 9 times using HCl (pH 2.6). Between erosive challenges and over night samples were stored in artificial saliva. Per day, samples were stored (100 s; groups E1–E3) or additionally brushed (20 brushing strokes; groups EA1–EA3) in/with ...

People who suffer a stroke caused by bleeding in the brain could be helped by four simple checks of their brain scans, research suggests. The checks could help spot people at risk of further bleeding so they can be monitored more closely.
On Aug. 7, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force posted a final recommendation statement and final evidence summary on screening for atrial fibrillation with electrocardiography to prevent stroke.
According to the American Heart/American Stroke Association, stroke affects nearly 800,000 people in the United States each year. It is the fifth leading cause of death, and the leading cause of long-term disability. It’s also the leading cause of preventable disability. In China it is the leading cause of death surpassing both cancer and heart disease. Stroke occurs when a blood vessel carrying oxygen and nutrients to the brain is either blocked by a blood clot or plaque (ischemic stroke), or…
