CONCLUSION: In patients with isolated LMI, we postulate that disruption of the descending pathway from the pontine micturition centre to the sacral spinal cord at the level of the lateral tegmentum results in urinary retention. PMID: 31607099 [PubMed]

CONCLUSION: Females living with stroke may demonstrate a greater response to exercise on selective attention and conflict resolution compared with males with stroke. These findings suggest that there may be sex-specific effects of exercise on cognitive function in individuals with stroke. PMID: 31608416 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Both groups improved in the CAHAI. There was a significant between-group difference in the secondary outcome measure (FMUE) where the bilateral priming group had an average increase of 10 points from pre-intervention to follow up. PMID: 31609714 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Gillebert, Dante Mantini, Cathy J. Price, Thomas M.H. HopeAbstractAround a third of stroke survivors suffer from acquired language disorders (aphasia), but current medicine cannot predict whether or when they might recover. Prognostic research in this area increasingly draws on datasets associating structural brain imaging data with outcome scores for ever-larger samples of stroke patients. The aim is to learn brain-behavior trends from ...

Publication date: Available online 14 October 2019Source: Journal of Orthopaedic TranslationAuthor(s): Bing Chen, Bin Zi, Ling Qin, Qiaosheng PanAbstractAgeing population is now a global challenge, where physical deterioration is the common feature in elderly people. In addition, the diseases, such as spinal cord injury, stroke, and injury, could cause a partial or total loss of the ability of human locomotion. Thus, assistance is necessary for them to perform safe activities of daily living. Robotic hip exoskeletons are able to support ambulatory functions in elderly people and provide rehabilitation for the patients with...

AbstractPercutaneous left atrial appendage closure (LAAC) may decrease risks of stroke and bleeding in elderly patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF), but it is still lacking of evidence. The present study aimed at evaluating the efficacy and safety of LAAC in patients with NVAF over 75  years. 351 patients with NVAF who underwent LAAC were retrospectively analyzed on the LAAC procedure characteristics and the clinical follow-up according to age (age ≥ 75 years or

AbstractFor Japanese patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF), the risk of stroke and major bleeding events was assessed by using the CHADS2, CHA2DS2-VASc, and HAS-BLED scores. The risk factors for embolism and major bleeding under DOAC may be different from current reports. We analyzed the data set of the EXPAND Study to determine the risk factors for events among Japanese NVAF patients in the era of direct oral anticoagulant. Using the data of EXPAND Study, the validity for predictability of the CHADS2, CHA2DS2-VASc, and HAS-BLED scores was identified using the receiver operating characteristic curve analysi...
