Prognostic factors of functional outcome in post-acute stroke in the rehabilitation unit
CONCLUSION: Baseline ADL function was the most important prognostic factor of functional independence in post-acute stroke. Moreover, the activity limitation of dependency on sitting up and motor function impairment of hemiplegic lower limb prognosticated functional independence.PMID:34303583 | DOI:10.1016/j.jfma.2021.07.009

Treatment of pseudobulbar affect (PBA) in a patient with a history of traumatic brain injury, partial brain resection, and brainstem stroke: a case report
ConclusionsThis case provides anecdotal evidence for the efficacy of dextromethorphan/quinidine in the treatment of pseudobulbar affect with remarkably swift and complete cessation of symptoms. As a secondary point, it is worth noting that our  patient had experienced two devastating neurological traumas, both in anatomical areas that have been implicated in the corticopontine–cerebellar circuit thought to be responsible for pseudobulbar affect. However, only the second trauma, an acute left pontine infarction, produced symptoms of emo tional disinhibition. The authors hope that reporting this case will provide both con...

Pharmaceutical interventions for emotionalism after stroke.
CONCLUSIONS: Antidepressants may reduce the frequency and severity of crying or laughing episodes based on very low quality evidence. Our conclusions must be qualified by several methodological deficiencies in the studies and interpreted with caution despite the effect being very large. The effect does not seem specific to one drug or class of drugs. More reliable data are required before appropriate conclusions can be made about the treatment of post-stroke emotionalism. Future trialists investigating the effect of antidepressants in people with emotionalism after stroke should consider developing and using a standardised...

Interventions for treating urinary incontinence after stroke in adults.
CONCLUSIONS: There is insufficient evidence to guide continence care of adults in the rehabilitative phase after stroke. As few trials tested the same intervention, conclusions are drawn from few, usually small, trials. CIs were wide, making it difficult to ascertain if there were clinically important differences. Only four trials had adequate allocation concealment and many were limited by poor reporting, making it impossible to judge the extent to which they were prone to bias. More appropriately powered, multicentre trials of interventions are required to provide robust evidence for interventions to improve urinary inco...

A qualitative study on palliative needs of stroke patients in an Indian tertiary care setting - Doctors & #39; perspective
Conclusions: From the interviews of the clinicians, we can conclude that care of a stroke patient is more than medical management and rehabilitation, as several other aspects of the patient's life are affected by the condition. The quality of life aspect has to be looked upon as an area that requires active intervention in a setting of stroke. Physical disabilities were viewed as the most significant factor in reducing the quality of life. Spiritual needs have a low priority in comparison to other physical needs. Due to high patient load and time constraints, many of the needs are unaddressed. Two important area...

Low Testosterone Level as a Predictor of Poststroke Emotional Disturbances: Anger Proneness and Emotional Incontinence
The role of sex hormones in poststroke mood and emotional disturbances is unclear. We aimed to evaluate the impact of sex hormones on poststroke emotional disturbance, especially anger proneness (AP) and emotional incontinence (EI). We also investigated whether statins, which are widely used for stroke prevention, affect sex hormone levels or the presence of poststroke AP/EI based on the hypothesis that intensive treatment with statins would inhibit the synthesis of cholesterol, the preferred substrate of testosterone.

Stroke survivors ’ and carers’ experiences of a systematic voiding programme to treat urinary incontinence after stroke
ConclusionsThe effectiveness of a systematic voiding programme may partly lie in its educational component, challenging patients’ and carers’ assumptions that post‐stroke incontinence is inevitable. Individual adaptation of the programme, and the ability to incorporate it alongside other aspects of care, are likely to be key factors influencing implementation. Relevance to clinical practiceUrinary incontinence is common after stroke. In order to maximise benefits from a systematic voiding programme, nurses should support stroke survivors to overturn erroneous beliefs, to participate in tailoring of the programme, and...

Management of post-stroke mood and emotional disturbances.
Authors: Kim JS Abstract INTRODUCTION: Mood and emotional disturbances are common in stroke patients. Out of diverse post-stroke emotional disturbances, depression, anxiety, emotional incontinence, anger proneness, and fatigue are frequent and important symptoms. These symptoms are distressing for both the patients and their caregivers, and negatively influence the patient's quality of life. The emotional symptoms are not apparent and are therefore often neglected by neurologists. Their phenomenology, predicting factors, and pathophysiology have been under-studied, and are under-recognized. In addition, well-designed ...

How does sex affect the care dependency risk one year after stroke? A study based on claims data from a German health insurance fund.
DISCUSSION: It may be assumed that women have a higher risk of becoming care-dependent after stroke than men because they are older and suffer more often from geriatric conditions such as urinary incontinence at onset of stroke. Preventive strategies should therefore focus on geriatric conditions in order to reduce the post-stroke care dependency risk for women. PMID: 28330419 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

A review of post-stroke urinary incontinence.
CONCLUSIONS: Stroke is a debilitating disease which causes urinary incontinence in many patients. As a result, patients have increased rates of hospitalization and disability compared to post-stroke patients without urinary incontinence. The history and physical exam are key in diagnosing the type of urinary incontinence with urodynamic studies being an adjunctive study. Non-pharmacologic treatment, such as behavioral therapy, and pharmacologic agents including antimuscarinics and beta adrenergic medications, are not well studied in the post-stroke patient.
