NCT ID: NCT06451965 Active, not recruiting - Clinical trials for Post-stroke Depression

SCED - Wisdom Enhancement for Post-Stroke Depression

Start date: September 1, 2023
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

One-third of stroke survivors experience post-stroke depression, but there are currently no official guidelines for supporting them. Researchers aim to investigate whether the wisdom enhancement timeline technique can reduce depression in stroke survivors. The investigators also want to understand how this technique positively impacts mood, identity, self-esteem, and wisdom. The study will involve nine stroke survivors from the National Health Service (NHS) to gain insights into effective ways to support those with post-stroke depression.

NCT ID: NCT06401655 Active, not recruiting - Stroke Clinical Trials

Financial Coaching for Adults Living With Acquired Brain Injury

Start date: February 21, 2024
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This pilot study will utilize a longitudinal concurrent mixed-methods research design that gathers and analyzes qualitative and quantitative data overtime about a new 10-session financial coaching program the investigators have developed. The data collected will be used to inform improvements to future related studies and programs for people living with acquired brain injury (ABI). These mixed-methods data from each method will be integrated to provide a comprehensive understanding of the intervention (i.e., the financial coaching program). Each individualized intervention per ABI-survivor participant will be completed over 3-4 months (i.e., 12-14 weeks).

Guideline-recommended Basic Parameter Adherence in Neurocritical Care Patients

Start date: November 30, 2022
Study type: Observational

The aim of the planned study project is to assess the current situation regarding the treatment of patients with severe stroke at the neuro-critical care unit. Specifically, determination of whether the target parameters recommended in the guidelines for temperature, systolic blood pressure, mean arterial blood pressure, blood glucose, arterial oxygen partial pressure and arterial carbon dioxide partial pressure had to be maintained. From the planned data analysis, the need for the introduction of cerebrovascular bundles can be derived and planned.

NCT ID: NCT06365931 Active, not recruiting - Stroke/Brain Attack Clinical Trials

Physiological and Functional Effects of Percutaneous Neuromodulation vs Transcutaneous Neuromodulation

Start date: February 16, 2024
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

INTRODUCTION: Clubfoot, drop foot or clubfoot, is a disorder that prevents reaching 100º of dorsiflexion actively. Its etiology is varied, and may be due to congenital problems, direct alteration of the bone structure, spasticity or shortening of the posterior musculature (triceps suralis), a neurological factor or a combination of several. Thus, we can differentiate between congenital clubfoot and acquired clubfoot. Stroke is one of the main causes of acquired clubfoot, which is due to paralysis of the dorsiflexor musculature and/or spasticity of the plantar flexor musculature. Electrical stimulation is able to increase muscle activation by depolarization of the motor plate and modulation of nerve conduction. This can be done transcutaneously, through surface electrodes or percutaneously through needles, so neuromodulation is presented as a tool applicable to the pathology of the equine foot, if we take into account the increased activation of the dorsiflexors of the foot. OBJECTIVE: The main objective is to evaluate which of the techniques, percutaneous or transcutaneous, is more effective for the approach of clubfoot in post-stroke patients. METHODOLOGY: a clinical trial with randomized probabilistic assignment in four groups is proposed: G1 (percutaneous neuromodulation): patients will receive a needle circuit approaching the deep peroneal nerve in an ultrasound-guided manner. They will receive a 20-30Hz symmetrical biphasic current; G2 (transcutaneous neuromodulation): patients will have a superficial electrode circuit placed over the belly of the tibialis anterior muscle. They will receive a symmetrical biphasic current of 20-30Hz; G3 (placebo-percutaneous group): in which the patients will receive the neuromodulation circuit with needles at 0 intensity; G2 (placebo-transcutaneous group): the patients will receive the electrodes at 0 intensity over the belly of the tibialis anterior muscle. The variables to be analyzed are: anthropometric variables (age, weight, height, BMI), muscle oxygenation (SatO2, O2Hb, HHb and THb), muscle strength of the foot dorsiflexors measured with dynamometer, muscle activation by surface electromyography, active and passive joint balance with goniometry or inclinometer, assessment of gait and balance, assessment of load distribution by static and dynamic pressure platform, spasticity and questionnaire on quality of life and functionality. The acute effects after one intervention session (pre-post intervention of one session) and the effects after a 10-session program will be analyzed.

NCT ID: NCT06315153 Active, not recruiting - Ischemic Stroke Clinical Trials

Comprehensive Assessment of Atherosclerotic Ischemic Stroke Risk and Development of a Prediction Model

Start date: January 3, 2022
Study type: Observational [Patient Registry]

This observational study was designed for the assessment of plaque vulnerability in patients with carotid atherosclerotic stenosis and the development of predictive models for the occurrence and recurrence of atherosclerotic ischemic stroke. The objectives of the study were as follows: first, to integrate the degree of carotid stenosis and plaque characteristics assessed by vascular ultrasound for a comprehensive assessment of plaque vulnerability; second, to develop an assessment tool for the risk of future ischemic stroke in patients with asymptomatic carotid stenosis by combining vascular risk factors, serologic markers, carotid ultrasound characteristics, and contrast-enhanced ultrasonographic parameters; and third, to incorporate vascular ultrasound parameters into existing predictive models of ischemic stroke recurrence risk to develop a risk assessment tool for atherosclerotic ischemic stroke. The main questions it aims to answer are: - How to screen high-risk patients and those eligible for revascularization from asymptomatic carotid stenosis patients for primary prevention of stroke. - How to improve the prediction accuracy of atherosclerotic ischemic stroke based on existing prediction models for secondary prevention of stroke.

NCT ID: NCT06297044 Active, not recruiting - Healthy Clinical Trials

Neural and Cognitive Correlates of Pragmatic Abilities

Start date: March 29, 2018
Study type: Observational

Pragmatics of language refers to the set of abilities that allow one to use and interpret language according to context and, in general, to communicate effectively. Disorders in the pragmatics of language are prevalent in various clinical populations. They are a cause of social withdrawal and worse quality of life, both for patients directly affected and for their family members. Despite this, this type of disorder is rarely considered in neuropsychological assessment and rehabilitation. This study's objective is to characterize pragmatic deficits in various neurological populations, allowing for the most accurate diagnosis possible and leading to the planning of personalized and effective Rehabilitation Plans.

Efficacies of Different Managements in Patients With Overactive Bladder With Stroke

Start date: November 1, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The goal of this clinical trial is to comparing the efficacies of different managements in patients with overactive bladder symptoms with stroke The main question it aims to answer are: - Are pelvic floor training exercises and bladder training enough to ease the symptoms of overactive bladder in patients with stroke? - Is tibial nerve stimulation really effective and does it decrease the need of medications in patients with overactive bladder with stroke? Participants are questioned if they have the symptoms of overactive bladder. After urodynamic evaluation, they are separated in 2 groups. Pelvic floor training exercises and bladder training are given in both groups; while one of the groups is followed with tibial nerve stimulation and the other one is followed with sham tibial nerve stimulation for 6 weeks. Our main aim was to compare effectiveness of tibial nerve stimulation in patiens with overactive bladder with stroke.
