This study will measure Interleukin 6 (IL-6), a well-documented inflammatory biomarker that is increased in the acute phase of stroke, and to compare its levels after the administration of melatonin - a well-documented anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant - that regulates circadian rhythm, which helps promote sleep.
Severe acute brain injury (SABI), including large artery acute ischemic stroke, intracerebral hemorrhage, and severe traumatic brain injury continue to be the leading cause of death and disability in adults in the U.S. Due to concerns for a poor long-term quality of life, withdrawal of mechanical ventilation and supportive medical care with transition to comfort care is the most common cause of death in SABI, but occurs at a highly variable rate (for example in Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) 45-89%). Decision aids (DAs) are shared decision-making tools which have been successfully implemented and validated for many other diseases to assist difficult decision making. The investigators have developed a pilot DA for goals-of-care decisions for surrogates of SABI patients. This was developed through qualitative research using semi-structured interviews in surrogate decision makers of TBI patients and physicians. The investigators now propose to pilot-test a DA for surrogates of SABI patients in a feasibility trial.
A single site, study of the SENSE device in up to 20 study subjects, (five healthy controls and five each with ICH, AIS with LVO and AIS without LVO) in whom SENSE can be applied within 24 hours of stroke symptom onset.
This cohort study will evaluate the relatiobship of stroke recurrence and anti-platelet resistance in ischemic stroke patients
This is a registry for all patients admitted to hospital settings with Ischemic stroke in Mansoura University Hospital. The registry will capture patients' data, investigations and vitamin D level on admission. Follow-up is taking place using MODIFIED RANKIN SCALE
The purpose of this study is: - to assess efficacy of MMH-MAP in the treatment of mild cognitive impairment in early stage of recovery after ischemic stroke - to assess safety of MMH-MAP in the treatment of mild cognitive impairment in early stage of recovery after ischemic stroke
The XIENCE 28 USA Study is prospective, single arm, multi-center, open label, non-randomized trial to evaluate safety of 1-month (as short as 28 days) dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) in subjects at high risk of bleeding (HBR) undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with the approved XIENCE family (XIENCE Xpedition Everolimus Eluting Coronary Stent System [EECSS], XIENCE Alpine EECSS and XIENCE Sierra EECSS) of coronary drug-eluting stents.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) with positive airway pressure starting shortly after acute ischemic stroke or high risk TIA (1) reduces recurrent stroke, acute coronary syndrome, and all-cause mortality 6 months after the event, and (2) improves stroke outcomes at 3 months in patients who experienced an ischemic stroke.
Clopidogrel is an anti-platelet agent used to inhibit blood clots. Variation in response to clopidogrel has been reported among different population and may lead to reoccurring ischemic events. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the incidence of clopidogrel resistance in ischemic stroke patients from different ethnicities in Northern Israel and to find different strategies to overcome high platelet reactivity including clopidogrel dose adjustment or the choice of alternative agents. Quantification of platelet aggregation will be determined by vasodilator stimulated phosphoprotein (VASP) assay.
The primary objective of the trial is to establish the effectiveness of IAT (versus medical management) in patients with moderate-large infarcts (NCCT ASPECTS 2-5) at baseline, with adaptive enrichment to better define the upper limit of infarct volume for treatment eligibility. Furthermore, the investigators aim to determine whether certain subgroups of patients with large baseline infarcts will have a greater treatment benefit. Finally, the investigators will assess the agreement of ASPECTS scores between site investigators, the core imaging lab, and automated software.
