The aim of this study is to objectively evaluate the effectiveness of radial extracorporeal shock wave therapy (rESWT) and conventional physical therapy program on the gait pattern through a new gait analysis system which encompasses spatiotemporal and kinematic parameters and to correlate the findings with the clinical evaluation.
This study assess the relationship between lower limb spasticity and trunk movements during static and dynamic balance in post-stroke patients who also underwent conventional physical therapy, visual feedback balance training and radial extracorporeal shock wave therapy intervention.
Magnetic susceptibility imaging is a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique that uses the magnetic properties of tissues and the BOLD (blood oxygen level-dependent) effect. It allows a better visualization of venous structures and hemorrhagic lesions. These sequences are now used in clinical routine. The extreme sensitivity of these sequences to the oxy/deoxyhemoglobin ratio makes it possible to describe a new MRI semiology, particularly in the context of cerebral ischemia. The interest of the analysis of the venous network signal, which can reflect cerebral perfusion, has been reported. However, the influence of the hematocrit level on the signal of the venous network in magnetic susceptibility imaging has not been evaluated at present. It seems important to better define the influence of hematocrit level on the signal of the veins with this sequence to avoid potential diagnostic errors.
The purpose of this study is to assess the effect of rTMS and tDCS coupled with robotic therapy on upper extremity functional recovery
The investigators will perform a long term registry based prospective analysis on incidence of major cardiovascular events or death in hypertensive patients with obstructive sleep apnea . Effects of PAP (positive airway pressure) compliance, antihypertensive medication and blood pressure control will be investigated in the study.
A prospective, multicenter, single-arm objective performance criteria trial to investigate the safety and efficacy of SINOMED ADPAT for Recanalization Therapy in acute large-vessel occlusive stroke.
The purpose of this study was to examine whether if the effect of standing with assistance of the tilt table on diaphragm excursion and thickness in the stroke patients with tracheotomy.
Lack of proper stroke care delivery leads to poor patient outcomes in middle- and low-income countries that can be improved by implementation of international standards. We aim to determine feasibility of implementing stroke core measures and training through blended learning modules in resource poor countries to improve stroke outcomes.
A mixed methods randomised controlled pilot trial, conducted in miniature of future definitive trial, in which the investigators will test optimised intervention and study processes. The investigators will individually randomise stroke survivor participants in a 1:1 allocation to: HEADS: UP or Control.
Korean Stroke Cohort for functioning and rehabilitation (KOSCO)-II is a large, multi-centre prospective cohort study for all acute first-ever stroke patients admitted to participating hospitals in nine distinct areas of Korea. This study is designed as a 10-year, longitudinal follow-up investigating the residual disabilities, activity limitations, and quality of life issues arising in patients suffering from first-ever stroke as previous similar stroke cohort with KOSCO. The main objectives of this study are to identify and compare the factors that influence residual disability and long-term quality of life in first-ever acute stroke patients with KOSCO. The secondary objectives of this study are to determine and compare the risk of mortality and recurrent vascular events in first-ever acute stroke patients with KOSCO. Investigators will investigate longitudinal health behaviors and patterns of healthcare utilization, including stroke rehabilitation care. Investigators will also investigate the long-term health status, mood, and quality of life in stroke patient caregivers. In addition, investigators will identify baseline and ongoing characteristics that are associated with secondary outcomes.
