This thesis aimed to elucidate the role of informal caregiver subjective well-being in explaining formal long-term care service (LTCS) use. A systematic review and meta-analysis of literature found that elevated caregiver burden, caregiver depression, and poorer caregiver health status are associated with increased formal LTCS use. Quantitative analyses of longitudinal data collected from stroke survivors and their caregivers revealed that increased caregiving burden and caregiver depression are prospective and concurrent predictors of stroke rehabilitation use at 12-month post-stroke, and that non-distressed caregivers at...

Patients who underwent cerebral angiog...

Authors: Wang Q, Liu X, Zhao J, Zhu R Abstract INTRODUCTION: Ischemic stroke is a life-threatening condition worldwide, including China. Nowadays, intravenous thrombolysis and mechanical thrombectomy are chiefly applied as clinical therapeutics; however, strict time windows and underlying risks limit their benefits for patients. Thus, it is urgently needed to seek new effective targets for stroke to improve clinical outcomes. AREAS COVERED: Circular RNAs have recently emerged as ideal therapeutic candidates for ischemic stroke with high stability and evolutionary conservation in the brain tissue. The neurovascu...

This study provides characterization of a lipid-rich necrotic core, a dangerous type of coronary plaque made up of dead cells and cell debris that is prone to rupture. Ruptured plaque can lead to a heart attack or stroke. The analysis involved 209 middle-aged patients (ages 37-62) with psoriasis who participated in the Psoriasis Atherosclerosis Cardiometabolic Initiative at the National Institutes of Health, an ongoing observational study. Of these participants, 124 received biologic therapy, and 85 were in the control group, treated only with topical creams and light therapy. To measure the effects of biologic ther...

AbstractBackgroundDysphagia affects up to 30% of hospitalized patients, and it is associated with numerous complications.AimsAssess the impact of a 24/7 dysphagia screening protocol in an Internal Medicine Unit regarding respiratory complications (such as aspiration pneumonia) as the primary outcome. Length of stay and discharge destination were secondary outcomes.MethodsCase-control hospital-based analysis comparing the outcomes before and after the implementation of the screening protocol. We analysed demographic data (such as age and gender) and clinical data (presence of dysphagia, vascular risk factors and other comor...
