Relationship between multimorbidity and outcomes in atrial fibrillation
CONCLUSIONS: In a nationwide contemporary cohort of AF anticoagulated patients, multimorbidity was inversely associated with good anticoagulation control. A progressively higher risk for major bleeding, CV death and all-cause death was found across CCI quartiles.PMID:34303775 | DOI:10.1016/j.exger.2021.111482

by Nicole M. Davis Armstrong, Wei-Min Chen, Fang-Chi Hsu, Michael S. Brewer, Natalia Cullell, Israel Fern ández-Cadenas, Stephen R. Williams, Michèle M. Sale, Bradford B. Worrall, Keith L. Keene Aberrant DNA methylation profiles have been implicated in numerous cardiovascular diseases; however, few studies have investigated how these epigenetic modifications contribute to stroke recurrence. The aim of this study was to identify methylation loci associated with the time to recurrent cerebr o- and cardiovascular events in individuals of European and African descent.

IJERPH, Vol. 18, Pages 6615: The Effectiveness of Additional Core Stability Exercises in Improving Dynamic Sitting Balance, Gait and Functional Rehabilitation for Subacute Stroke Patients (CORE-Trial): Study Protocol for a Randomized Controlled Trial
rútia Background: Trunk impairment produces disorders of motor control, balance and gait. Core stability exercises (CSE) are a good strategy to improve local strength of trunk, balance and gait. Methods and analysis: This is a single-blind multicenter randomized controlled trial. Two parallel groups are compared, and both perform the same type of therapy. A control group (CG) (n = 110) performs conventional physiotherapy (CP) (1 h per session) focused on improving balance. An experimental group (EG) (n = 110) performs CSE (30 min) in addition to CP (30 min) (1 h/session in total). EG is divided in two subgroups, in wh...

Bottlenecks in the Acute Stroke Care System during the COVID-19 Pandemic in Catalonia
Conclusion: During the COVID-19 pandemic, Catalonia ’s stroke system’s weakest points were the delay to EMS alert and a decline of stroke code activations, reperfusion treatments, and interhospital transfers, mostly at local centers. Patients suffering an acute stroke during the pandemic period had higher odds of poor functional outcome and death . The complete stroke care system’s analysis is crucial to allocate resources appropriately.Cerebrovasc Dis

Socioeconomic Factors Predicting Depression Differ in the Acute Stage and at 1 year After Ischemic Stroke or TIA
The most prevalent psychiatric complication after stroke is depression. Clinically relevant depressive symptoms appear in about one third of cases after stroke.1,2 The frequency of post stroke depression (PSD) is highest in the first year after stroke.3 In a recent Spanish survey of patients with TIA and minor stroke 43.9 % had post stroke depression (PSD) at 10 days after the cerebrovascular event and 8.6 % of patients had PSD 12 months later.4 Severity of depressive symptoms often changes in the first year after stroke.

Reducing Hypertension in a Post-Stroke Black and Hispanic Homecare Population: Results of a Pragmatic Randomized Controlled Trial.
CONCLUSION: The significant across-the-board SBP decreases suggest that UHC nurse/patient/physician interactions were the central component of SBP reduction and that additional efforts to lower recurrent stroke risk should test incremental improvements in usual care, not resource-intensive transitional care interventions. They also suggest the potential value of pragmatic homecare programs as part of a broader strategy to overcome HTN treatment barriers and improve secondary stroke prevention globally.

How to unfasten the Spanish Stroke Belt? Andalusia chooses research
Andalusia in southern Spain, one of the largest regions in the European Union, has made a profound economic and social transformation that has led to establishment of a modern universal public health care system. However, due to its high stroke mortality rates, Andalusia is still known as the ‘Spanish Stroke Belt’. To fight these figures, successive initiatives culminated in the launch of the Andalusian Plan for Stroke Care, to be developed during the period of 2011 to 2014. In addition, involved professionals have hypothesized that clinical and experimental research may contribute to improving stroke care in our commu...
