Recovering a neuronal network: Stroke affects the brain and entire nervous system, requiring an integrated treatment plan to recover impaired functionality

(Natural News) Medical advances have yet to design a proper treatment and management plan for stroke recovery that is truly effective. It is estimated that while a majority of patients recover from their initial stroke, a massive 60 percent are left with a diminished arm or leg, and another 15 percent are unable to re-enter...

In conclusion, this is the first report to show that pyroptotic cell death occurs in the aging brain and that the inflammasome can be a viable target to decrease the oxidative stress that occurs as a result of aging. Reducing Levels of Protein Manufacture Slows Measures of Aging in Nematodes https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2018/12/reducing-levels-of-protein-manufacture-slows-measures-of-aging-in-nematodes/ Researchers here demonstrate that an antibiotic slows aging in nematode worms, providing evidence for it to work through a reduction in protein synthesis. Beyond a slowing of aging, one of the con...

HIGH blood pressure symptoms include chest pain, shortness of breath, and finding blood in your urine. But you could be at risk of “life-threatening” hypertension if your headache is accompanied by these signs.

ao Chen When exercising in a high-temperature environment, heat stroke can cause great harm to the human body. However, runners may ignore important physiological warnings and are not usually aware that a heat stroke is occurring. To solve this problem, this study evaluates a runner’s risk of heat stroke injury by using a wearable heat stroke detection device (WHDD), which we developed previously. Furthermore, some filtering algorithms are designed to correct the physiological parameters acquired by the WHDD. To verify the effectiveness of the WHDD and investigate the features of these physiological parameter...

Conclusion: We compared the relationship between the SGA and the spirometry as certified pulmonary function test. The SGA data were statistically significant and reliable for pulmonary function assessment in stroke patients. It will therefore be useful during rehabilitation to improve pulmonary function and clinical monitoring in stroke patients. PMID: 30519571 [PubMed - in process]

ConclusionsWe demonstrate the feasibility of a rabbit model of embolic MCA occlusion with angiographic documentation. Serial MR imaging demonstrated changes comparable to those observed in human ischemic stroke, confirmed histopathologically.

ConclusionsA risk model for in-hospital stroke following TAVR was developed from the STS/ACC TVT Registry and used to estimate site-specific stroke performance. This model can serve as a valuable resource for quality improvement, clinical decision-making, and patient counseling.

The objective of this research is validation of the enhanced effects of multiple combined treatment of AG extract with MSCs on stroke through angiogenesis. Our results confirmed that AG extract with MSCs improved the neovascularization increasing expression of angiogenesis-regulated molecules. The changes of brain and the behavioral ability showed the increased effects of AG extract with MSCs. As a result, AG extract and MSCs may synergistically increase the therapeutic potential by enhancing neovascularization. This mixed approach provides a new experimental protocol of herbal medicine therapy for the treatment of a varie...

Authors: Bakelants E, Belmans A, Verbrugghe P, Adriaenssens T, Jacobs S, Bennett J, Meuris B, Desmet W, Rega F, Herijgers P, Herregods MC, Dubois CL Abstract AIMS: Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is the preferred treatment modality for patients with severe aortic stenosis at high or prohibitive risk for surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR). We aimed to evaluate real-world outcomes after treatment according to the decisions of the multidisciplinary heart team in a Belgian health-economic context. METHODS AND RESULTS: Four hundred and five high-risk patients referred to a tertiary centre betwee...

CONCLUSIONS: Our results suggest that compared to CABG, HCR is associated with a lower risk of postoperative blood transfusion and infection, as well as a shorter ICU stay and hospital stay. HCR was also associated with a higher risk of long-term TVR. PMID: 30504516 [PubMed - in process]
