Variations in Modeling for Treating All Patients With Stroke With Suspected Large Vessel Occlusion
To the Editor We read the article by Holodinsky et al, who reported the results of a modeling study to identify the optimal triage and transport strategy for patients suspected of having large-vessel occlusion, with interest.

CONCLUSION: BPPV is the most frequent diagnosis seen in the ED; however, physicians need to document nystagmus more precisely and perform diagnostic tests systematically, in order to make an accurate diagnosis. To avoid misdiagnoses, ED physicians and ENT specialists should be able to recognize central signs in patients with an acute vestibular syndrome. Every fourth patient does not receive a definitive diagnosis. Diagnostic ED workup for patients with dizziness needs further improvement. PMID: 32221628 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionsMore macrovascular and microvascular complications were found in Northern compared to Southern patients, and the largest difference also appeared in the younger age groups under 55, which may be meaningful to a screening and treatment strategy according to geographic differences.

BackgroundIschemic stroke is the most common type of stroke, while pharmacological therapy options are limited. Ginsenosides are the major bioactive compounds in Ginseng and have been found to have various pharmacological effects in the nervous system. In the present study, we sought to evaluate the effects of Ginsenoside-Rb1 (G-Rb1), an important ingredient of ginsenosides, and the probable neuroprotective mechanisms in experimental ischemic strokes.MethodsStudies of G-Rb1 on ischemic stroke animal models were identified from 7 databases. No clinical trials were included in the analysis. The primary outcome measures were ...
