Management Protocols and Encountered Complications among Stroke Patients Admitted to Stroke Unit of Jimma University Medical Center, Southwest Ethiopia: Prospective Observational study

ConclusionBoth neurologic and medical complications were common in majority of stroke patients. But the management protocol for stroke patients was sub-optimal and lagging behind the recommended guidelines due to lack of skilled personnel, appropriate treatment and diagnostic agents. The clinical team involved in the care of stroke patients should make preparations to take preventive measures that will save a lot of lives.

Publication date: Available online 4 December 2019Source: Interdisciplinary NeurosurgeryAuthor(s): Zhihui Deng, John DavisAbstractThere is evidence of disrupted cerebral blood flow in patients with a skull defect due to decompressive craniectomy though the pathophysiologic mechanism is yet to be established. Here we report on a patient who suffered one episode of transient ischemic attack (TIA) when developing early stage sinking skin flap syndrome (SSFS) post decompressive craniectomy due to a severe traumatic brain injury. This case report of TIA as a clinical presentation of SSFS indicating a potentially increased risk ...

Conclusions: Our results suggest that in this community-dwelling population, a higher CAA score is related to cognitive impairment and a higher risk of stroke, dementia, and death. The composite CAA score can be used to practically quantify the severity of vascular brain injury.

DiscussionThis review will be the first to report and summarise the risk for and incidence of PPC in adult patients with MetS undergoing surgery across a range of surgical specialities. The results have the potential to inform the development of evidenced-based interventions to improve the management of PPC in the surgical patient with MetS. Findings from this systematic review and meta-analysis will inform a subsequent Delphi study on priorities and responses to PPC in patients with MetS. We will also disseminate our results through publication in scientific peer-reviewed journals, conference presentations and promotion t...

To achieve a large motion stroke, compact structure and good decoupling performance, a novel displacement amplifier including L-shape levers and half-bridge (LSLHB) is proposed. By utilizing a concave input mechanism for location restriction between PEA and flexible mechanism, the motion coupling caused by the inc...
