Test-retest reliability and responsiveness of isokinetic dynamometry to assess wrist flexor muscle spasticity in subacute post-stroke hemiparesis
To overcome the limitations of clinical scales, objective measurement methods are becoming prominent in spasticity assessment. The aim of this study was to assess the test –retest reliability and responsiveness of isokinetic dynamometry to evaluate wrist flexor spasticity in patients with subacute stroke.

CONCLUSION: Physical and mental health functioning declined among symptomatic individuals and those with stroke/TIA history. Thus, frequent monitoring for the early detection of stroke symptoms may be recommended. PMID: 32653213 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Baud JM, Stanciu D, Yeung J, Maurizot A, Chabay S, de Malherbe M, Chadenat ML, Bachelet D, Pico F Abstract INTRODUCTION: Carotid atherosclerosis represents 8 to 15% of ischemic strokes in relation to the concept of "vulnerable" plaque. Contrast enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) can detect moving microbubbles within the plaque corresponding to neovessels that constitute "precursors" of vulnerable plaque and intraplaque hemorrhage. CEUS was not studied specifically in acute ischemic strokes. The aim of this study is to analyse the prevalence of CEUS carotid plaque ipsilateral at the ischemic str...
AbstractIntracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is a non-traumatic cerebrovascular disorder with very high morbidity and mortality and regarded as one of the deadliest stroke subtypes. Notably, there is no effective treatment for ICH. Despite an overall increase in preclinical studies, the pathophysiology of ICH is complex and remains enigmatic. To this end, ICH was induced in male CD-1 mice and the ipsilateral brain tissue was characterized in an unbiased manner using a combination of proteomics and bioinformatics approaches. A total of 4833 proteins were revealed by quantitative proteomic analysis. Of those, 207 proteins ex...
CONCLUSIONS: D-ER at either a 7.5 mg or 10 mg dose did not significantly increase performance on the 2 MinWT in stroke survivors with gait impairment, although this study was terminated early before full enrollment. (Clinical Trial # NCT02271217). PMID: 32651338 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
DiscussionThe protocol outlines the methods for systematically reviewing and synthesising evidence of screening strategies for type 2 diabetes mellitus and their effect on health outcomes associated with the disease. The potential impact of this systematic review is improved evidence-informed decision-making for policies and practice for screening of type-2 diabetes.Systematic review registrationPROSPERO CRD42020147439
