This is a prospective, multicenter, cohort study aiming to compare the safety and efficacy of EmboTrap II with other stent retrievers without inner channel for acute middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO). All enrolled patients will be followed up at 90 days after randomization.
Time is one of the most important in the decision of treatment of acute ischemic stroke. The optimal One-stop management from admission to recanalization associated with reduction of in-hospital times. The development of ﬂat-detector computed tomography perfusion capable angio-suite allowed One-stop management to be improved treatment time better and better. To compare One-stop management versus our standard workflow in shortening door-to-recanalization time.
The investigators propose to perform serial detailed cognitive, motor, behavioral, and blood collection follow-up using longitudinal structured telephone interviews of an anticipated 350 ICH survivors enrolled in Minimally Invasive Surgery Plus Alteplase for Intracerebral Hemorrhage Evacuation (MISTIE) III and ENRICH trials to identify specific cognitive and motor impairment and to perform RNA sequencing to evaluate for evidence of chronic inflammation. The investigators' expected sample size in 2022 accounts for mortality attrition of 10%/year.
The objective of this study is to retrospectively evaluate the outcomes and clinical benefits provided by this brace to adult patients with upper limb impairment or paralysis due to brachial plexus, stroke (CVA), spinal cord injury, or other neurological disease or injury.
Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the world after coronary heart disease and cancer. In recent years, by controlling the risk factors of stroke, its incidence has decreased by 30% and the mortality rate due to this disease has decreased by 14%. However, it is still among the most important diseases that cause disability in adults. The aging of the world population and the increase in the number of individuals with chronic diseases, including stroke, increase the need for rehabilitation services rapidly. Access to rehabilitation services is restricted due to the insufficient number of specialist health personnel and the difficulty of transportation for people living in rural areas. At the same time, barriers such as decrease in physical mobility, increase in bothersome symptoms and travel restrictions in developed countries are expected to increase with the aging population and will cause a decrease in participation in rehabilitation. In this context, telerehabilitation shows a promising way to increase rehabilitation access with fewer healthcare professionals or to help maintain positive outcomes following rehabilitation. Telerehabilitation, which is among the telehealth possibilities, is defined as the use of information and communication technologies to provide clinical rehabilitation services remotely. These technologies allow communication between healthcare personnel and patients, as well as the transmission of imaging and other healthcare data from one place to another. Telerehabilitation includes clinical rehabilitation services focused on evaluation, diagnosis and treatment (Janet vd.,). Tele-assessment, which is among the service delivery model of telerehabilitation, is defined as the transfer of patient data to the healthcare professional or team, instantly or retrospectively, through equipment, sensors, questionnaires and tests. Unlike other services, there are factors that make tele-assessment difficult. It is necessary to ensure that patient performance is correctly evaluated. Internet and video transmission can affect the ability to accurately assess patient performance and thus affect the tele-assessment. Consideration should be given to the validation of tele-assessment for certain assessments that are frequently used in the assessment of patient performance. For this reason, we chose to examine the timed 'Up & Go'(TUG) test and '30second Chair-Stand Test' (30s-CST), which are the most common tests in the evaluation of lower extremity muscle strength, balance, and mobility in rehabilitation. TUG and 30s-CST are simple clinical outcome measures commonly used to assess functional performance. Johansen et al. found that the TUG test and 30s-CST in stroke patients had excellent internal and inter-research reliability when administered face-to-face. This study is based on studies showing that the application of tests that are effective in the evaluation of functional performance with the tele-assessment method is an effective method.
The aim of the study is to compare the effects of specific functional task-oriented motor imagery training combined with the Bobath Therapeutic Approach and physical practice after imagery on upper extremity motor function in stroke patients.
Despite numerous advances in diagnosing procedures, treatment and prevention, stroke is considered a significant cause of long-term disability in the adult population Quality of life, which is deteriorated in patients after stroke (CVA), especially in the first years after stroke, is not only affected by the disease but is closely related to dignity and the satisfaction of human needs, including educational needs. The term "Health-Related Quality of Life" (HRQoL) is used in the scientific literature as a criterion of change for medical purposes. It is an indicator of health service needs and a way to evaluate health status in a very efficient way. Psychoeducation can be applied in medical and nursing practice, as an intervention that can improve and/or maintain the quality of life, especially if it is provided to patients without a significant cognitive deficit. Psychoeducational programmes can be defined as didactic-therapeutic interventions that serve to provide information about the disease, emotional and social support and, last but not least, facilitate adaptation to new life situations.
A prospective cohort study (questionnaires), with an embedded case control study (neuropsychological assessments) in which the data is gathered within a timeframe of 3 years. A group of 700 patients and a group of 100 healthy volunteers will be participating.
To successfully manipulate objects in one's surroundings, such as when lifting a cup, one must accurately perceive their physical interactions. This includes accurately interpreting the tactile cues arising at one's fingertips when touching an object. Currently, tactile perception is assessed in individuals with stroke using passive protocols. Research has yet to explore whether activating one's muscles impacts the tactile perceptual process in individuals with stroke despite previous research demonstrating the effect of muscle activation on tactile perception in individuals who are neurologically intact. The proposed research will be the first to address the impact of muscle activation, in addition to stroke, on tactile perception. As such, the proposed research is significant for advancing our understanding of the extent to which tactile deficits occur in individuals with stroke, particularly during volitional movement.
This study aims to evaluate the relationship between sarcopenia and functional outcomes with temporal muscle mass change.
