The landscape of disparities in obstetric neurocritical care and a path forward
Health disparities in the obstetric population affect maternal morbidity and mortality. In the past years, there has been no significant improvement in disparities in care in the obstetric population. Patients who are pregnant are known to have a higher risk of pregnancy-associated neurologic conditions such as stroke and intracerebral hemorrhage. They can also experience concomitant neurocritical care disease states such as status epilepticus and traumatic brain injury. Studies exploring the disparities of care among pregnant patients who are neurotically ill are lacking. We aim to provide the landscape of disparities of ...

Serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D is associated with stroke history in a reverse J-shape
ConclusionUsing data from a large, cross-sectional cohort program, we found that circulating 25(OH)D was related to stroke history in a reverse J-shaped manner. Given how the causal relationship between circulating 25(OH)D and history of stroke has not been established, more high-quality evidence based on the reverse J-shaped feature is needed to elucidate the link between vitamin D and stroke risk, and the effect of vitamin D supplements on stroke prevention.

Translation of the Fugl-Meyer assessment into Romanian: Transcultural and semantic-linguistic adaptations and clinical validation
ConclusionsThe final Romanian version of FMA's official evaluation protocols showed good preliminary reliability and validity, which could be thus recommended for use and expected to help improve the standardization of this assessment scale for patients after a stroke in Romania. Furthermore, this endeavor could be added to similar international translation and cross-cultural adaptations, thereby facilitating a more appropriate comparison of the evaluation and outcomes in the management of stroke worldwide.
