Effects of Prehospital Thrombolysis in Stroke Patients With Prestroke Dependency Clinical Sciences
Background and Purpose—Data on effects of intravenous thrombolysis on outcome of patients with ischemic stroke who are dependent on assistance in activities of daily living prestroke are scarce. Recent registry based analyses in activities of daily –independent patients suggest that earlier start of intravenous thrombolysis in the prehospital setting leads to better outcomes when compared with the treatment start in hospital. We evaluated whether these observations can be corroborated in patients with prestroke dependency.Methods—This observational, retrospective analysis included all patients with acute ischemic str...

Cause-specific Mortality after Stroke: Relation to Age, Sex, Stroke Severity, and Risk Factors in a 10-Year Follow-up Study
We investigated cause-specific mortality in relation to age, sex, stroke severity, and cardiovascular risk factor profile in the Copenhagen Stroke Study cohort with 10 years of follow-up. In a Copenhagen community, all patients admitted to the hospital with stroke during 1992-1993 (n = 988) were registered on admission. Evaluation included stroke severity, computed tomography scan, and a cardiovascular risk profile. Cause of death within 10 years according to death certificate information was classified as stroke, heart/arterial disease, or nonvascular disease. Competing-risks analyses were performed by cause-specific Co...

Determinants of early case‐fatality among stroke patients in Maputo, Mozambique and impact of in‐hospital complications
The burden of stroke is increasing in developing countries that struggle to manage it efficiently. We identified determinants of early case‐fatality among stroke patients in Maputo, Mozambique, to assess the impact of in‐hospital complications. Patients admitted to any hospital in Maputo with a new stroke event were prospectively registered (n = 651) according to the World Health Organization's STEPwise approach, in 2005–2006. We assessed the determinants of in‐hospital and 28‐day fatality, independently of age, gender and education, and computed population attributable fractions. In‐hospital mortality was ...

Multicentre collection of uniform data on patients hospitalised for transient ischaemic attack or stroke in the Philippines: the Philippine Neurological Association One Database-Stroke (PNA1DB-Stroke) protocol
Introduction For scientific advances to translate into improved patient outcomes, systems of care must be in place to facilitate delivery of care. There is scarce information on quality of care and clinical outcome in our stroke patients. We aim to collect uniform data from patients with first or recurrent transient ischaemic attack (TIA) or ischaemic or haemorrhagic stroke to determine in-patient caseload, patient profile, types of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, outcomes and overall quality of care among patients hospitalised for acute stroke in the Philippines. Methods and analysis This multicentre observational...

Seasonal Variation and Trends in Stroke Hospitalizations and Mortality in a South American Community Hospital
Numerous studies have reported the presence of temporal variations in biological processes. Seasonal variation (SV) in stroke has been widely studied, but little data have been published on this phenomenon in the Southern Hemisphere, and there have been no studies reported from Argentina. The goals of the present study were to describe the SV of admissions and deaths for stroke and examine trends in stroke morbidity and mortality over a 3-year period in a community hospital in Argentina. Hospital discharge reports from the electronic database of vital statistics between 1999 and 2001 were examined retrospectively. Patients...

Outcomes after Tissue Plasminogen Activator Administration under the Drip and Ship Paradigm May Differ According to the Regional Stroke Care System
The drip and ship paradigm for stroke patients enhances the rate of using intravenous tissue plasminogen activator (IVT) in community hospitals. The safety and outcomes of patients treated with IVT for acute ischemic stroke (AIS) under the drip and ship paradigm were compared with patients directly treated at a comprehensive stroke center in the Busan metropolitan area of Korea. This was a retrospective study of patients with AIS treated with IVT between January 2009 and January 2012. Information on patients' baseline characteristics, neuroimaging, symptomatic intracerebral hemorrhage (sICH), and outcome 90 days after usi...

Prevalence of Triggering Factors in Acute Stroke: Hospital-Based Observational Cross-sectional Study
Although chronic risk factors for stroke are reasonably well understood, the acute precipitants, or triggers, of stroke relatively remain understudied. Identification of particular time periods during which stroke risk is elevated could prove a valuable strategy to reduce stroke incidence through the introduction of appropriate prevention strategies during a period of vulnerability. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of trigger factors in acute stroke patients and to investigate the association of the presence of trigger factors with initial stroke severity at presentation (National Institutes of Health ...

Changes in Serum Growth Factors in Stroke Rehabilitation Patients and Their Relation to Hemiparesis Improvement
Predicting recovery from hemiparesis after stroke is important for rehabilitation. A few recent studies reported that the levels of some growth factors shortly after stroke were positively correlated with the clinical outcomes during the chronic phase. The aim of this study was to examine the relationships between the serum levels of growth factors (vascular endothelial growth factor [VEGF], insulin-like growth factor-I [IGF-I], and hepatocyte growth factor [HGF]) and improvement in hemiparesis in stroke patients who received rehabilitation in a postacute rehabilitation hospital. Subjects were 32 stroke patients (cerebral ...
