A new marker identification of high risk stroke patients: Jugular saturation

The aim of this prospective study; to investigate in emergency patients with stroke the relationship between jugular saturation and National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS), lesion volume and mortality score.

Authors: Khan R Abstract Introduction: There has been considerable study assessing the treatment of cryptogenic stroke (CS) recently. This review examines the role of patent foramen ovale (PFO) closure in CS, while also discussing the evidence for alternative medical therapies in disease treatment.Areas Covered: PFO closure for treatment of CS has been assessed in 6 randomized controlled trials (RCTs). This review summarizes the background, results and limitations of these trials. Methodological and treatment-related differences in RCTs provide potential explanations for the discordance in outcomes observed between...

Authors: Valentí V, Cienfuegos JA, Becerril Mañas S, Frühbeck G Abstract Bariatric-metabolic surgery is the safest, most effective and long-lasting treatment for obesity and its associated co-morbidities, whether they be metabolic (type 2 diabetes, hyperlipidemia non-alcoholic fatty liver disease) or cardiovascular (myocardial infarction, stroke). Due to the obesity pandemic, bariatric-metabolic surgery is the second most frequent intra-abdominal procedure and the gastroenterologist and the surgeon must be aware of the physiologic changes caused by the anatomic reconfiguration following surgery. ...

Publication date: Available online 21 February 2020Source: Neuroscience &Biobehavioral ReviewsAuthor(s): Jennifer Grau-Sánchez, Thomas F. Münte, Eckart Altenmüller, Esther Duarte, Antoni Rodríguez-FornellsAbstractMusic-based interventions have emerged as a promising tool in stroke motor rehabilitation as they integrate most of the principles of motor training and multimodal stimulation. This paper aims to review the use of music in the rehabilitation of upper extremity motor function after stroke. First, we review the evidence supporting current music-based interventions including Music-supporte...

Discussion IAB is a rather frequent finding in the general population. IAB is a risk factor for AF and is associated with an increased risk of stroke or TIA independently of associated AF. Key messagesBoth partial and advanced interatrial block are associated with increased risk of atrial fibrillation in the general population.Advanced interatrial block is an independent risk factor for stroke and transient ischemic attack.The clinical significance of interatrial block is dependent on the subtype classification.

Discussion of Preliminary Findings Sensors doi: 10.3390/s20041221 Authors: Steven Barlow Rebecca Custead Jaehoon Lee Mohsen Hozan Jacob Greenwood Automated wireless sensing of force dynamics during a visuomotor control task was used to rapidly assess residual motor function during finger pinch (right and left hand) and lower lip compression in a cohort of seven adult males with chronic, unilateral middle cerebral artery (MCA) stroke with infarct confirmed by anatomic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). A matched cohort of 25 neurotypical adult males served as controls. Dependent variables were extracted from ...

In conclusion, MGCs represent a macrophage/microglia subtype with strong phagocytosis capacity. MGCs exhibited not only an M2 but also an M1 phenotype and appeared involved in hemoglobin degradation. Anti-CD47 antibody boosted the number of MGCs, which may contribute to enhance hematoma clearance. Understanding the exact roles of MGCs in ICH may reveal novel targets for ICH treatment.

CONCLUSION: Given the abrupt and significant life-changing nature of stroke, it is often necessary to manage a diverse array of psychological issues that often cannot be simply managed via psychotropic medications. Moreover, an understanding of the patients' emotional adjustment and issues can help them maximize their rehabilitation, recovery, and community integration. For the cases discussed, psychology consultations were central in helping optimize their rehabilitation and functional outcomes. PMID: 32083601 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
