Arm Subscore of Motricity Index to Predict Recovery of Upper Limb Dexterity in Patients With Acute Ischemic Stroke

Conclusions Early arm subscore of the Motricity Index at 1 wk predicts upper limb functional capacity before inpatient rehabilitation facility discharge and at 3-mo outpatient follow-up.

Introduction: The practice of endovascular therapy has evolved dramatically over the last 10 years with randomized clinical trials investigating the benefit of thrombectomy in select patient populations based on time of presentation, imaging criteria, and procedural technique. We sought to understand the benefit of thrombectomy in patients treated within the context of a clinical trial at a single academic center.Methods: Patient-level data recorded in case forms and core-lab adjudicated data were analyzed from patients enrolled in RCTs investigating the benefit of endovascular thrombectomy over medical management (IMSIII,...

Authors: Huang ZX, Lin J, Zhang C, Dai YY, Lin S, Liu X Abstract Early neurologic deterioration (END) in the acute phase of ischemic stroke is a serious clinical event, which is closely related to poor prognosis. Therefore, it is important to identify presentation features that predict END and take relevant treatment measures, as they could help to prevent the deterioration of high-risk patients. The prospective intervention study was carried out from January 2018 to December 2019. We included consecutive patients hospitalized for acute ischemic stroke (AIS) within 6 hours of onset. Patients were randomly assigned ...

Objective: To determine the relationship between stress hyperglycemia and prognosis of acute ischemic stroke people with and without diabetes.Methods: A subgroup of 8,622 acute ischemic stroke people with baseline levels of fasting blood glucose and HbA1c from the China National Stroke Registry II were analyzed. Stress hyperglycemia was measured by glucose/glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) ratio, calculated by fasting blood glucose divided by HbA1c. Diabetes was diagnosed according to medical history or a HbA1c level of ≥6.5%. The outcomes included severe neurological deficit defined as modified Rankin Scale score of 3 to 5 a...
