ABSTRACT Get With The Guidelines ® – Stroke is an in-hospital program for improving stroke care by promoting adherence to scientific guidelines. Of the patients with transient ischemic attack (TIA), 10-15% have a stroke within three months, and many patients do not receive the recommended interventions to prevent this outcome. Objective: The goal of this study was to assess the adherence to stroke quality indicators in patients with TIA. Methods: This retrospective observational study evaluated consecutive patients admitted to a primary stroke center with TIA or acute ischemic stroke (AIS) from August 2008 to Dec...

Publication date: Available online 16 October 2018Source: Journal of Clinical NeuroscienceAuthor(s): Shengbang Zheng, Baodong YaoAbstractRisk factors for first-ever stroke have been studied extensively, while those for recurrent stroke are not accurately understood. To provide the adequate secondary prevention for the patients, it is necessary to reveal the risk factors that dominate recurrent stroke. Multiple databases were adopted to search for the relevant studies and full-text articles involving in the risk factors for stroke recurrence were reviewed. Meta-analyses were performed with Review Manager 5.0 to estimate the...

Authors: Sung PH, Lin HS, Lin WC, Chang CC, Pei SN, Ma MC, Chen KH, Chiang JY, Chang HW, Lee FY, Lee MS, Yip HK Abstract This phase I clinical trial tested the hypothesis that circulatory CD34+ cell therapy might be safe for old ischemic stroke (IS) (defined as IS>6 months) patients and also to evaluate the neurological function after the therapy. Nine old IS patients (with mean IS interval: 8.6 ± 6.4 years) were consecutively enrolled and received intra-carotid artery transfusion of circulatory-derived autologous CD34+ cells (3.0×107 cells/patient) into the ipsilateral brain infarct area at cathete...

CONCLUSIONS: D-dimer>2.785 μg/ml may be an effective cutoff value and a sensitive index for identifying CAIS patients. AMBIs in ≥3 vascular territories and AMBIs in both the anterior and posterior circulations are two imaging characteristics of CAIS. PMID: 30317943 [PubMed - in process]
