In recent years, mediation analysis has become a popular means to identify and quantify pathways linking an exposure to an outcome, thereby elucidating how a particular exposure contributes to the occurrence of a specific outcome. When a mediator is a modifiable risk factor, this opens up new opportunities for interventions to block (part) of the exposure`s effect on the outcome. Recent examples in Scandinavian Journal of Work Environment Health have addressed the mediating effect of wellbeing on the association between type of office and job satisfaction (1) and examined whether workplace social capital contributes to the...

Background: Hypertension is a well-known risk factor for intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). On many of the other potential risk factors, such as smoking, diabetes, and alcohol intake, results are conflicting. We assessed risk factors of ICH, taking also into account prior depression and fatigue. Methods: This is a population-based case-control study of 250 primary ICH patients, conducted in Helsinki University Hospital, Finland. The controls (n  = 750) were participants of the FINRISK study, a large Finnish population survey on risk factors of chronic noncommunicable diseases, matched with cases by sex and age.

Poststroke depression (PSD) affects one-third of stroke patients and is linked with higher stroke morbidity, mortality, and recurrence. Current guidelines do not direct when to screen for PSD, and predictors of PSD are not well understood. We sought to understand progression of PSD symptoms early after ischemic stroke, identify predictors of PSD, and describe the use of antidepressants in PSD.

CONCLUSION: Despite widespread use of rTMS, high-quality evidence for its routine use for the treatment of stroke survivors is lacking. Further studies are required to establish differential roles of various protocols and long-term effects of rTMS in the stroke population. PMID: 31922207 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
