Post-stroke depression (PSD) is one of the most common post-stroke dysfunction, with a high incidence. PSD affects prognosis and disease rehabilitation, increases disease mortality and suicide risk, and aggravates the economic burden on individuals and society. Studies have shown that transcranial alternating current (TAC) can also be used to treat depression, insomnia and anxiety. So far, this stimulator has been approved by FDA and is widely used in clinical practice in North America. However, there have not been any reports on the use of this technology in the treatment of depression and post-stroke depression in China. In this study, the latest TACs technology was used to treat PSD, and the therapeutic effects and adverse reactions could be preliminarily observed.
We plan to conduct a randomized controlled trial to examine whether usual rehabilitation plus an iPad application-based intervention improves post-stroke depression symptoms compared to usual rehabilitation alone. The purpose of this pilot randomized controlled trial is to investigate the feasibility of the final randomized controlled trial.
This study aim to clarify the participants's mental state with Demoralization Scale- Mandarin Version(DS-MV). Based on clinical observations and literature review, investigators assume participants's DS-MV score high correlation with PHQ-9 score.
This mixed-method study includes a randomised controlled trial and an exploratory qualitative study, and aims to examine the effects of caregiver-delivered affective touch on depressive symptoms, state of attachment security, self-esteem, and perceived family harmony among stroke survivors, and to explore the mediating effect of attachment security and how an intervention may affect depressive symptoms from stroke survivor's perspective. A total of 184 survivor-caregiver dyads will be recruited from various non-governmental organisations. The dyads will be randomly allocated to intervention (IG) and control (CG) groups, stratified by the survivor's attachment style. IG caregivers will be taught to deliver a 15-minute affective touch intervention to stroke survivors. To address the attention effect, CG caregivers will be asked to sit with the survivors during a 15-minute fine motor coordination exercise. Both activities, affective touching and fine motor exercise, will be performed for 12 weeks (3 times/week), and the outcomes mentioned earlier will be measured at baseline, 12 and 36 weeks after study entry.
About 50% of all stroke patients develop post-stroke depression (PSD). A meta-analysis has shown that rTMS treatment can reduce depressive symptoms in PSD patients. In addition to rTMS alone for the improvement of depression, the question arises as to whether a combination therapy of rTMS plus antidepressant medication can achieve a stronger or longer-term effect in PSD patients. Unfortunately, there are currently no trials of combination therapy with rTMS and drug therapy in PSD patients. Therefore, this study will investigate whether combination therapy of antidepressant and rTMS can provide additional relief of depressive symptoms compared to antidepressant and sham rTMS therapy. It is assumed that the additional active rTMS achieves a faster normalization of affect and drive than with a sham rTMS, so that the patients benefit from neurorehabilitation measures earlier and more sustainably.
Fatigue is a prevalent, prolonged and partly disabling symptom following cerebral stroke. The health services has little knowledge of fatigue, both in terms of what characterizes those affected, and with regard to how fatigue can be treated. Persons going through a stroke may experience impairments in cognitive functions such as attention and memory. This will often cause previously effortless activities of daily living to become strenuous and exhausting. Experiencing a stroke will also in many cases lead to a major change in life due to other related loss of function, grief and health-related concerns. Emotional reactions like depression and anxiety are widespread. Specific knowledge of how cognitive impairment, emotional reactions and coping strategies contribute to development and maintenance of fatigue is lacking. The present research project will contribute with new and important knowledge in this area. A total of 250 adults have been followed up after stroke with multiple examinations. Average age at the time of stroke was 70 years. The investigators now plan to follow them up three to four years after stroke. This provides a unique opportunity to investigate how depression and anxiety, over time, may be related to the experience of fatigue, cognitive impairment and negative coping strategies such as worrying and rumination. The investigators will use questionnaires and cognitive tests when examining these associations. Such new knowledge about cognitive and emotional factors related to the development of fatigue long-term after stroke may help determine who is at risk of developing symptoms of fatigue. Furthermore, it can shed light on possible preventional measures, and provide better suited advice to those affected by fatigue. This knowledge can also pave the way for new, research-based treatment methods.
This study aims to pilot test an 8-week, self-administered dyadic (couples-based) positive psychology intervention for couples coping with stroke using a randomized, waitlist control design. Mood and well-being will be assessed pre- and post-intervention, and at 3-month follow-up. It is expected that both partners will demonstrate improvement in mood and well-being.
This is a multicenter, randomized trial aims to reveal the efficacy and safety of Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) individualized therapy based on the 'emotional loop destabilization' mechanism of PSD .One hundred and twenty participants will be recruited from three centers and randomized with a 1:1 ratio to receive "Personalized" rTMS treatment or traditional rTMS treatment in addition to routine antidepressant treatments.The data of neuropsychological tests and MRI will be collected at 0, 2，4 and 8 weeks after the commencement of the treatment.
This is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial aims to assess the effectiveness of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation(rTMS) in treating depression after basal ganglia ischemic stroke and to examine whether such effects are related to restoration of white matter integrity.Sixty-six participants will be recruited from three centers and randomized with a 1:1 ratio to receive active rTMS treatment or sham rTMS treatment in addition to routine supportive treatments.The data of neuropsychological tests and MRI will be collected at 0, 2 and 4 weeks after the commencement of the treatment.
To explore the efficacy and safety of Jiedu Tongluo granules for post stroke depression. A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial was designed. The treatment group was administered the Jiedu Tongluo granules, while the control group was administered the placebo.
