Modern aspects of the pathophysiology of walking disorders and their rehabilitation in post-stroke patients - Khatkova SE, Kostenko EV, Akulov MA, Diagileva VP, Nikolaev EA, Orlova AS.

The problem of rehabilitation of post-stroke patients with motor deficit remains relevant with growing prevalence of disability and decreasing mortality, despite all measures aimed at stroke prevention and morbidity reduction. One of the most common conseq...

Authors: Susmitha K, Chandrasekhar V, Kiran G, Divya A, Rani GS, Sarangapani M Abstract Stroke is becoming a main cause of early death and disability in developing countries like India, and it is mostly enhanced by increased predominance of major risk factors. A detailed knowledge about the nature and magnitude of the stroke cases in this particular area is not only important for acute treatment but also it helps to prevent hospital admissions due to reoccurring stroke. The present study was conducted in the Department of Stroke at MGM Hospital, Warangal, India, to study the patterns of stroke admissions. All the c...

Abstract Stroke is a leading cause of death and disability in developed countries. N-methyl-D-aspartate glutamate receptors (NMDARs) have important roles in stroke pathology and recovery. Depending on their subtypes and locations, these NMDARs may promote either neuronal survival or death. Recently, the functions of previously overlooked NMDAR subtypes during stroke were characterized, and NMDARs expressed at different subcellular locations were found to have synergistic rather than opposing functions. Moreover, the complexity of the neuronal survival and death signaling pathways following NMDAR activation was fur...

AbstractStroke has a high incidence rate and often leads to permanent disability, particularly if it is not treated promptly. However, no blood biomarkers for early diagnosis are available to date. Therefore, we sought to detect stroke-specific blood biomarkers by identifying proteins associated with the underlying coagulation mechanism, which accounts for more than 80% of all stroke cases. Protein profiling was performed using blood samples from 16 healthy controls and 18 patients who suffered a stroke as the discovery set. We identified upregulated proteins (>  1.5-fold change andp value

AbstractSpinal cord infarction (SCI) is a rare disease among central nervous system vascular diseases. Only a little is known about venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA-ECMO)-related SCI. Retrospective observational study conducted, from 2006 to 2019, in a tertiary referral center on patients who developed VA-ECMO-related neurovascular complications, focusing on SCI. During this period, among the 1893 patients requiring VA-ECMO support, 112 (5.9%) developed an ECMO-related neurovascular injury: 65 (3.4%) ischemic strokes, 40 (2.1%) intracranial bleeding, one cerebral thrombophlebitis (0.05%) and 6 (0.3%) sp...

t B Abstract Platelets are anucleate cells known for their essential function in hemostasis and formation of thrombi under pathologic conditions. In recent years, strong evidence emerged demonstrating the critical involvement of platelets in inflammatory processes including acute ischemic stroke (AIS), which is one of the leading causes of death and disability worldwide. Recanalization of the occluded brain artery to reconstitute cerebral blood flow is the primary goal in the treatment of stroke patients. However, despite successful reperfusion many patients show progression of infarct sizes, a phenomenon referred...

Conclusions: Walking in their real-world provided a meaningful, desirable, but challenging goal for participants that required significant emotional effort. Successful progress in real-world walking builds confidence and hope and can contribute to psychological wellbeing by providing opportunities for successful mastery and social connectedness.IMPLICATIONS FOR REHABILITATIONReal-world settings can be unpredictable which makes walking in the real-world after stroke demanding.Positive experiences of walking in the real-world can provide significant psychological benefits to stroke survivors.Many survivors need to carefully ...
