This is a bi-centric study whose main objective is the validation of a rapid screening test for language disorders in the acute phase of right hemisphere stroke. Primary objective The main objective is the validation of a rapid language disorder screening tool that will be used in the acute phase of right hemispheric stroke. Secondary objectives Secondary objectives are: - Characterize the "atypical crossed aphasia" since the acute phase of stroke with a large cohort of patients , which, to our knowledge, has never been done. - Re-evaluate the number of patients with acute language disorder in right hemisphere stroke. - Validate the use of R-LAST by different categories of carers
Fragile brain is the most common phenomenon seen in the patients undergoing CEA. The patients with fragile brain have a high incidence of postoperative brain dysfunction. This study intends to apply EEG monitoring (Sedline) to CEA to investigate whether EEG monitoring can reduce the incidence of postoperative neurological complications in CEA patients and improve their prognosis. 220 patients with CEA were randomly divided into 2 groups. Group S [Sedline monitoring + Transcranial Doppler (TCD) + regional cerebral oxygen saturation (rS02)，n=110] and group C [Bispectral index (BIS) + TCD +rSO2,n=110], recording intraoperative and postoperative conditions, neuropsychology scale assessment, blood examination and imaging examination. The incidence of postoperative neurological complications was compared between the two groups.
Aphasia is one of the most common and disabling disorders following stroke, in many cases resolving in long-term deficits. There is evidence that intensive aphasia therapy is effective for language recovery, even in the chronic phase post-stroke. However, as many patients are left with residual language disorders and intensive aphasia rehabilitation is difficult to achieve, the investigators are exploring tablet-based therapies to further facilitate language recovery in a cost-effective manner.
Investigators aim to study efficiency of systemic thrombolytic therapy on acute ischemic stroke patients with near infrared spectroscopy.
DISPLACE is a three part, multi-center U.S. based study to evaluate the barriers to stroke screening and prevention in children with sickle cell anemia (SCA). In the United States, TCD (Transcranial Doppler ultrasound) is a proven method of screening children with SCA for stroke. However, many children are not getting the screening they need. This study will examine the issues that hinder and help children get the screening at 28 different hospitals and sickle cell centers to improve care for all children with sickle cell anemia. The investigators will then plan a study (part 3) aimed to improve stroke screening and prevention in sickle cell anemia.
NBO is a nonpharmacological measure of neuroprotection. The purpose of our study is to evaluate the safety and efficiency of NBO（Normobaric hyperoxia) in the acute ischemic stroke patients who received endovascular treatment. Looking for more clinical evidence for the ischemic stroke patients who will be treated with NBO in the future.
Evaluation of a new EMG controlled game to improve hand function in chronic stroke survivors.
The aim of this case-controlled observational cross-sectional study is to investigate the test-retest reliability, validity and clinical utility of a rapid robotic assessment of finger proprioception using a passive gauge position matching tasks in MS and stroke subjects. Session 1 Informed consent Descriptive measures Session 2 Clinical testing Robotic assessment (3x) Session 3 Clinical testing Robotic assessment (3x)
This study aims at investigating whether bilateral movement-based training with computer games could augment motor function of paretic upper limb and improve quality of life in sub-acute stroke patients.
The purpose of the research is to use plasma free fatty acid profiling as a biomarker for ischemic stroke. The plasma free acid profile will be specifically and significantly changed in early stages upon stroke onset, and correlate with the stroke volume and progression determined by imaging techniques.
