The study is a single-arm, open-label, multicenter clinical trial.The primary purpose of this trial is to evaluate the incidence of symptomatic intracranial hemorrhage in patients with acute ischemic stroke within 48 hours after the use of Eptifibatide injection. Patients with acute ischemic stroke treated with intravascular thrombolytic therapy, mechanical thrombolysis, angioplasty and so on were treated with Eptifibatide injection on the first day, followed by the second day, the third day, the discharge day and the 90 days.
In this project, the investigators will investigate the effects of a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), escitalopram, on augmenting language therapy effectiveness, as measured by naming untrained pictures and describing pictures, in individuals with aphasia in the acute and subacute post stroke period (i.e., within three months post stroke).
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.
Introduction: Stroke is a sudden illness, responsible for important neurological and cognitive sequelae that can result in functional limitations and dependence. It is the leading cause of neurological impairment in young adults and resting-related muscle loss is one of the major factors involved. Early rehabilitation is essential for these patients and neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) has been identified as an intervention alternative due to its known effects on the prevention of muscle loss in patients with various pathologies. Objective: To evaluate the effects of NMES associated with conventional physiotherapy compared to conventional physiotherapy on muscle thickness and functionality of patients with acute stroke. Methodology: This is a randomized clinical trial, which will be performed at the Emergency and Unit Unit of the Stroke of the Hospital de Clínicas of Porto Alegre (HCPA). Patients with acute stroke, with up to 72 hours of hospital admission, who present with lower limb force deficit due to the current stroke will be included. Patients will be randomized into two groups: intervention group, who will receive the application of NMES associated with conventional physiotherapy and control group, who will receive the conventional physiotherapy of the HCPA. EEMS training will be applied once a day (30 minutes of application per session with an increase of five minutes each week and gradual reduction in OFF time), five days a week until hospital discharge or up to a maximum of three weeks. The following outcomes will be assessed before and after the intervention: quadriceps and tibial thickness and quality of the quadriceps and tibialis anterior, muscle strength, stroke severity, gait, functionality and disability.
This study evaluates whether a 4-week exercise training program focusing on lower limb flexors can improve lower limb motor function late after stroke. It is hypothesized that there would be significant improvements in gait and strength of the flexor muscles as a result of the training. It is also hypothesized that the training effects, if any, would be retained at 4 weeks after ending the training.
This is a pilot study to collect data to support a VA grant submission to study fMRI and neurophysiological predictors of hand function and recovery during a robotic intervention in people with hand impairments due to stroke or spinal cord injury.
This is a randomized controlled behavioral intervention trial to assess the efficacy of a brief intervention to increase stroke preparedness.
The goal of this study is to evaluate left atrial structural and functional abnormalities in stroke of likely cardio-embolic origin and atherosclerotic stroke with cardiac MRI.
Thanks to using VR googles and the phenomenon of total immersion "VR Tier One" allows to completely separate the patient from the hospital environment, provides an intense visual, auditory and kinesthetic stimulation. Depending on the stage of therapy it can have a calming and mood-improving effect or, in another part of the game, it can motivate and cognitively activate the patient. The additional aim of the game is to help the patients regain their emotional balance, let them recognize their resources in order to bring them to power in the rehabilitation process and trigger the natural recovery mechanisms.
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.
