From Hospital to Home to Participation: A Position Paper on Transition Planning after Stroke

Based on a review of the evidence, members of the American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine Stroke Group ’s Movement Interventions Task Force offer these five recommendations to help improve transitions of care for patients and their caregivers: (1) improving communication processes, (2) utilizing transition specialists, (3) implementing a patient-centered discharge checklist, (4) utilizing standardi zed outcome measures, and (5) establishing partnerships with community wellness programs.Due to changes in healthcare policy, there are incentives to improve transitions during stroke rehabilitation.

Authors: Esenwa C, Lekoubou A, Bishu KG, Small K, Liberman A, Ovbiagele B Abstract Background: Compared with non-Hispanic Whites (NHW), racial-ethnic minorities bear a disproportionate burden of stroke and receive fewer evidence-based stroke care processes and treatments. Since 2015, mechanical thrombectomy (MT) has become standard of care for acute ischemic stroke (AIS) patients with proximal anterior circulation large vessel occlusion (LVO). Objectives: Our objectives were to: assess recent trends in nationwide MT utilization among patients with AIS; determine if there were racial differences; and identify wh...

CONCLUSION: Isolated superior striate vein thrombosis is a rare form of intracranial venous thrombosis and should be considered in the differential diagnosis of stroke-like episodes with headache in adults. Isolated superior striate vein thrombosis presents with characteristic imaging features on CT and MRI. PMID: 31969077 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Taguchi A, Sakamoto S, Okazaki T, Oshita J, Kuwabara M, Kurisu K Abstract BACKGROUND: Several recent randomized controlled trials have reported that perioperative complications of carotid artery stenting increase with age, and Japan has the highest proportion of elderly in the world. We retrospectively compared clinical factors, treatment outcomes, and adverse events between younger and elderly carotid artery stenting patients at a single institution in Japan to assess carotid artery stenting safety for the aged population. METHODS: A total of 150 consecutive patients treated with carotid artery stenti...

ConclusionsThis study indicated that exercise combined with low-level inhibition of GABAA receptors after stroke could facilitate the recovery of motor function accompanied by BDNF upregulation in the ipsilateral M1. Therefore, this study provides a novel insight of pharmacological neuromodulation into stroke rehabilitation.

The prevalence of acute BAO is 10.4% among patients treated with thrombectomy for acute large vessel occlusion. Vertebral artery stump syndrome (VASS) reportedly causes ischemic stroke with tandem occlusions as vertebral artery (VA) origin occlusion and BAO. The pathogenesis of ischemic stroke due to VASS can be attrib...

Publication date: Available online 23 January 2020Source: PeptidesAuthor(s): Keita Sasaki, Sebok Kumar Halder, Hayato Matsunaga, Hiroshi UedaAbstractProthymosin alpha (ProTα)-mimetic hexapeptide (amino acid: NEVDQE, P6Q) inhibits cerebral or retinal ischemia-induced behavioral, electrophysiological and histological damage. P6Q also abolishes cerebral hemorrhage induced by ischemia with tissue plasminogen activator (tPA). In the present study we examined the beneficial effects of P6Q on other post-stroke prognostic psychology-related symptoms, which obstruct the motivation toward physical therapy. Intravenous (i.v.) a...

BY JESSICA DAMASSA Can artificial intelligence help prevent cardiovascular diseases? Biotech startup, Prevencio, has developed a proprietary panel of biomarkers that uses blood proteins and sophisticated AI algorithms to detect cardiovascular conditions like coronary and peripheral artery disease, aerotic stenosis, risk for stroke and more. Dean Loizou, Prevencio’s VP of Business Development, breaks down the process step-by-step and explains exactly how Prevencio reports its clinically viable scores to doctors. How does the AI fit into all this? We get to that too, plus the details around this startup’s plan...
