This study will evaluate the safety and effectiveness of Respiratory-gated Auricular Vagal Afferent Nerve Stimulation (RAVANS) for improving motor recovery after stroke. Subacute stroke patients will receive RAVANS or sham stimulation concurrent with arm motor training during 10 intervention sessions occurring daily for 30 minutes over 2 weeks. The safety and improvements in arm motor function after the intervention will be compared in patients receiving RAVANS to those receiving sham stimulation.
This is a Phase II, randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled study for subjects with evidence of PSCI.
The objective of the MEDIS study is to determine if subjects experiencing an Acute Ischaemic Stroke due to large vessel occlusion, treated with IV tPA combined with the MED procedure have a greater likelihood of recanalisation 30-90 minutes after the completion of tPA infusion than subjects treated with IV tPA (plus sham device). Safety of the MED System Procedure will be evaluated by the incidence of symptomatic PH-2 haemorrhagic transformation within 24 hours following the procedure. Lastly, a health economics study will be conducted to estimate health care costs for each treatment.
Invasive intracranial pressure (ICP) monitoring is highly effective, but involves risks. HS-1000 measures ICP non-invasively by assessing the acoustic properties of the patient's head. HS-1000 device, a proprietary non-invasive ICP monitor, is expected to safely and accurately monitor ICP with minimal discomfort to patients, and provide information about normal or elevated ICP levels to the physicians.
A prospective pilot study to evaluate the recanalization and safety of mechanical thrombectomy through a cerebral angiogram in patients with stroke symptoms last seen normal between 8 - 24 hours.
Autologous human umbilical cord blood (hUCB) stored at Cord Blood Registry will be given to children who have suffered from a Perinatal Arterial Ischemic Stroke. The aim is to determine if hUCB infusion is safe, if late functional outcome is improved, if hUCB treatment improves physiologic response in the child's SSEP & EEG, and the effect of hUCB infusion in altering anatomic findings on MRI.
The past 10 years of research in post stroke patients have shown certain types of rehabilitation can help neuronal plasticity of the brain. Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) can be used to monitor this plasticity by mapping the brain's function (measuring brain activity). Recent research suggests that TMS can be used for both prognosis (determining future function) and to determine what type of rehabilitation therapy will work best after stroke. The purposes of this research study are to: 1) determine changes in cerebellar activity after motor cortical stroke 2) compare changes in recovery of motor function with changes in cerebellar - motor cortex connections; 3) determine the ability of TMS to "predict" functional outcome after stroke. The primary hypotheses are: 1) functional recovery will be correlated with TMS changes (as measure of motor threshold (MT), intracortical inhibition, cerebellar cerebral inhibition (CBI), motor evoked potentials (MEPs) and recruitment curves; 2) baseline TMS will predict future functional outcomes.
This research is a Randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter clinical study. Chinese subjects with Ischemic Stroke.
Primary Endpoint: The primary objective is to show that AIS patients, ineligible for or refractory to treatment with IV-tPA, with appropriate image selection, treated with mechanical thrombectomy within 6-12 hours of symptom onset have less stroke related disability and improved good functional outcomes as compared to those treated with best MT with respect to endpoint defined as: • 90-day global disability assessed via the modified Rankin score (mRS), analyzed using raw mRS scores. Statistical details can be found in section 7.2. Secondary Endpoints: - 90-day global disability in the 6-12 hr cohort assessed via the overall distribution of mRS - Proportion of patients with good functional recovery for the 6-12 hr cohort as defined by mRS 0-2 at 90 days - Mortality at 30 and 90 days - Intracranial hemorrhage with neurological deterioration (NIHSS worsening >4) within 24 hours of randomization - Procedure related serious adverse events (SAE's) - Arterial revascularization measured by TICI 2b or 3 following device use
The ReStore™ Thrombectomy device restores blood flow in the neurovascular by removing thrombus in patients experiencing ischemic stroke. Patients enrolled in the ReStore Trial will be randomized to treatment with the ReStore™ Thrombectomy Device (investigational treatment) or to treatment with a commercially available thrombectomy device It is expected that the investigational treatment safety profile in terms of clinically significant procedural adverse events will be comparable to the control group.
