A stroke of bad luck: new-onset mania in elderly patient following undetected stroke, a case report
The phenomenon of developing depression after a stroke is fairly common in the literature (29%) but developing mania after a stroke is rare reportedly to be 1-2% of stroke survivors (Starkstein). One of the earliest descriptions of mania after stroke was described in 1989 of the right hemisphere (Starkstein). In 2011, a systematic review looking at 32 studies identified 49 cases describing symptoms of mania post-stroke. At initial presentation, 92% of these patients presented with elevated mood, 71% with increased rate of speech, 69% with insomnia and 63% with agitation (Santos).

The role of rehabilitation psychology in stroke care described through case examples.
CONCLUSION: Given the abrupt and significant life-changing nature of stroke, it is often necessary to manage a diverse array of psychological issues that often cannot be simply managed via psychotropic medications. Moreover, an understanding of the patients' emotional adjustment and issues can help them maximize their rehabilitation, recovery, and community integration. For the cases discussed, psychology consultations were central in helping optimize their rehabilitation and functional outcomes. PMID: 32083601 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Combination of Alprazolam and Bailemian Capsule Improves the Sleep Quality in Patients With Post-Stroke Insomnia: A Retrospective Study
Insomnia is often ignored in the diagnosis and treatment of patients after stroke. The present study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of alprazolam (ALP) combined with Bailemian capsule (BC, a traditional Chinese patent medicine) in the treatment of post-stroke insomnia (PSI). A total of 231 stroke patients involved in this retrospective study were treated by ALP, BC, or ALP + BC for 3 weeks. The quality of sleep was evaluated by the Pittsburgh sleep quality index (PSQI) and polysomnography (PSG), while self-care ability was monitored by the modified Rankin Scale (mRS) before and after treatment. Compared to the baseline, th...

Transcutaneous auricular vagus nerve stimulation in treating post-stroke insomnia monitored by resting-state fMRI: The first case report
Post-stroke insomnia (PSI) is one of the most frequent complications in the patients with cerebrovascular diseases. About 37 to 59% of the stroke patients report insomnia complaints [1]. Moreover, researches have indicated that insomnia is related to the increased cardiocerebrovascular morbidity and decreased stroke outcome [2]. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and drug intervention are the common treatments for PSI, however, because of dissatisfacted efficiency and side effects of drugs [1], it is very urgent to find an effective, safe and convenient complementary and alternative therapy.

Post-stroke Recrudescence from Infection: an Immunologic Mechanism?
AbstractPost-stroke recrudescence (PSR) usually occurs in the setting of infection, hypotension, hyponatremia, insomnia or stress, and benzodiazepine use. Animal studies have suggested an infection-related immunologic mechanism for PSR. This retrospective study was designed to assess whether infection-triggered PSR is related to a prior infection during the index stroke. We identified 95 patients admitted to Massachusetts General Hospital from 2000 to 2015 with post-stroke recrudescence who had adequate medical record information concerning the index stroke. The frequency of infections, as well as other triggers such as hy...

Sleep disorders and the risk of stroke.
Authors: McDermott M, Brown DL, Chervin RD Abstract INTRODUCTION: Stroke is a major cause of disability and death in the United States and across the world, and the incidence and prevalence of stroke are expected to rise significantly due to an aging population. Obstructive sleep apnea, an established independent risk factor for stroke, is a highly prevalent disease that is estimated to double the risk of stroke. It remains uncertain whether non-apnea sleep disorders increase the risk of stroke. Areas covered: This paper reviews the literature describing the association between incident stroke and sleep apnea, REM sle...

Modafinil for the Improvement of Patient Outcomes Following Traumatic Brain Injury
Conclusion. Modafinil is a central nervous system stimulant with well-established effectiveness in the treatment of narcolepsy and shift-work sleep disorder. There is conflicting evidence about the benefits of modafinil in the treatment of fatigue and EDS secondary to TBI. One randomized, controlled study states that modafinil does not significantly improve patient wakefulness, while another concludes that modafinil corrects EDS but not fatigue. An observational study provides evidence that modafinil increases alertness in fatigued patients with past medical history of brainstem diencephalic stroke or multiple sclerosis. ...

Subjective and objective features of sleep disorders in patients with acute ischemic or haemorrhagic stroke
Introduction: More than one third of stroke patients develop sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, periodic limb movement disorder, insomnia, and hypersomnia. However, scientific sleep data, especially based on polysomnography analysis, in the group of stroke patients are scarce. The aim of the study was to investigate the subjective and objective sleep parameters in the patients with an acute ischemic or haemorrhagic stroke.

Effect of bright light treatment in patient with post-stroke insomnia
Introduction: Post-stroke insomnia is associated with physical and mental health-related quality of life as well as functional outcomes in stroke patients during rehabilitation. Hypnotics could aggravate sleep apnea or delay neurological recovery in post-stroke insomnia, so non-pharmacologic treatment of insomnia after stroke is needed. Bright light treatment has been regarded as effective non- pharmacologic treatment for insomnia in general population. However, there has been no study using bright light treatment in post-stroke insomnia.

Insomnia as an additional clinical correlate of suicidal ideation after stroke
Suicide-related behaviors are frequent among stroke survivors [1]. In a recent systematic review and meta-analysis [2], it has been shown that about one out of eight subjects suffering from stroke may have suicidal ideation afterward (i.e., thinking about, considering or planning suicide). Findings, based on 15 studies including 13 independent samples and 10,400 unique subjects, showed a pooled proportion of suicidal ideation of 11.8% (7.4% to 16.2%). Suicidal ideation was less likely in stroke survivors who were married, employed and had higher education levels.

Insomnia and health-related quality of life in stroke.
CONCLUSION: The findings show that stroke survivors who experienced insomnia had a reduced overall HRQoL and were impaired in the energy and thinking domains of HRQoL. Early screening for sleep disturbance would be beneficial to prevent later development of post-stroke insomnia. Pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions are suggested to improve HRQoL in stroke patients with insomnia. PMID: 25908494 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
