Patients with acute ischemic stroke in anterior circulation within 4,5 hours of symptom onset, has a bone window and Trombolysis In Brain Ischemia (TIBI) <=4 in a relevant artery eligible. Both patients receiving thrombolysis and those who do not due to contraindications such as anticoagulation or recent surgery are enrolled, but into different study arms (CE-5S A for thrombolysis and B for non-thrombolysis); the decision to treat with thrombolysis or not is done according to clinical routine. All included patients are randomized to receive transcranial ultrasound and SonoVue-infusion or sham-ultrasound and placebo; i.e. in CE-5S A, contrast enhanced sonothrombolysis is compared to thrombolysis and in CE-5S B, contrast enhanced sonolysis is compared with conservative management. Main outcome is improvement in National Institute of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) at 24 hours compared to baseline. Main safety outcome is symptomatic intracerebral haemorrhage.
This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled parallel group outpatient 42-day treatment study that will utilize standard stroke rehabilitation outcome measures to evaluate the effect of DNS-3379 on upper extremity motor recovery in subjects following ischemic stroke.
The purpose of this study is to test the effects of tDCS (Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation) on stroke patients with working memory problems.
This Phase IIa, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel group study will evaluate the safety, efficacy and pharmacodynamics of basmisanil in adult participants with severe motor impairment following an ischemic stroke.
The purpose of this study is to test the efficacy and safety of tDCS (Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation) on apathy in stroke patients.
Thrombectomy is now the standard of care of revascularization in acute ischaemic stroke. Data tend to show that final neurologic outcome is superior if the thrombectomy procedure was performed under conscious sedation. The Rothschild Foundation is a high output centre with more than 400 thrombectomy procedures every year. We report a rate of 5% of these procedures requiring general anesthesia despite conscious sedation being the standard of care. This study aims to identify clinical factors associated with a risk of conversion of a conscious sedation to a general anesthesia.
It has been suggested that augmenting repetitive task practice with the use of box (mirror) therapy (BT) can enhance the benefits of task practice and may provide stroke survivors an opportunity to engage in self-directed practice outside of normally scheduled therapy sessions. However, the dosage of BT to be used in clinical practice is unclear. In order for practitioners to begin integrating BT into clinical practice situations more information is needed to determine what defines a therapeutic dose. The aim of this study is to differentiate between two dosages of self-directed BT added to treatment as usual for decreasing arm and hand motor impairments, improving activity level, and increasing self-directed participation after stroke. Forty-five subjects from the Stroke Rehabilitation Unit at Helen Hayes Hospital (HHH) will be randomly assigned into three groups: treatment as usual plus 30 minute dosage of self-directed BT 5x/week; treatment as usual plus 60 minute dosage of self-directed BT 5x/week; treatment as usual plus 30 minutes of self-directed sham BT 5x/week.
With aging of the persons living with HIV, cardiovascular diseases now account for substantial mortality and morbidity. Stroke frequency grows exponentially with aging and its incidence doubles every decade over 55 years of age. The prognosis of ischemic stroke depends mainly on the care in Stroke Units in the acute phase of the disease (thrombolysis/thrombectomy). It is important that HIV patients are referred to these units in the first hours of a stroke and not to their infectious disease units which is a loss of chance. It would also be important to know whether HIV patients need specific protocols for stroke emergency management. The study aims to compare the functional prognosis after the first occurrence of an ischemic stroke, in patients admitted to a Stroke Unit, whether they are infected or not infected by HIV.
Randomised controlled multi-centered study using MindMotionPRO, an immersive virtual reality based system for upper limb motor rehabilitation in early post-stroke patients. The study aims to evaluate the ability of MindMotionPRO technology to increase the rehabilitation dose. Effectiveness will be evaluated by validated rehabilitation performance scales. Cost-effectiveness will be assessed by the resource utilization.
The primary objective of the study is to investigate the energy consumption, cardiorespiratory load and perceived exertion, and how these parameters change, during walking with robot-assistance compared to walking on a treadmill and walking overground in stroke patients. A secondary objective is to investigate whether these changes or differences in energy consumption, cardiorespiratory load and perceived exertion during walking with and without robot-assistance in stroke patients are related to changes or differences spatiotemporal gait characteristics.
