The role of TCD in the evaluation of acute stroke
BACKGROUND: The additional information that transcranial Doppler (TCD) can provide as part of a multimodal imaging stroke protocol in the setting of hyper acute strokes has not been evaluated. METHODS: Consecutive ...
Frequency, determinants, and effects of early seizures after thrombolysis for acute ischemic stroke: The ENCHANTED trial
(Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2017)
BACKGROUND: Seizures after ischemic stroke have not been well-studied. We aim to determine the frequency, determinants, and significance of early seizures after thrombolysis for acute ischemic stroke. METHODS: Data ...
Head position and cerebral blood flow in acute ischemic stroke patients: protocol for the pilot phase, cluster randomized, Head Position in Acute Ischemic Stroke Trial (HeadPoST pilot)
(Sage Publications, 2016)
RATIONALE: Few proven interventions exist for acute ischemic stroke (AIS), and most are expensive and restricted in applicability. Lying flat 'head down' positioning of AIS patients has been shown to increase by as much ...
Thrombolysis for Acute ischemic Stroke with Recombinant Tissue Plasminogen Activator in a Chilean Public Hospital
Background: The only accepted treatment for acute ischemic stroke is thrombolysis with recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA). It was implemented in Chile in 1996, although its use was mainly restricted in Chile ...
Statistical analysis plan of the head position in acute ischemic stroke trial pilot (HEADPOST pilot)
(Sage Publications, 2017)
Performance measures for in-hospital care of acute ischemic stroke in public hospitals in Chile
(BioMed Central, 2013)
Background: The aim of this study were to describe acute care of ischemic stroke patients and adherence to performance measures, as well as the outcomes of these events, in a sample of patients treated in public hospitals in ...
Minimum intravenous thrombolysis utilization rates in acute ischemic stroke to achieve population effects on disability: A discrete-event simulation model.
(Elsevier B.V., 2016)
BACKGROUND: The only pharmacological treatment with proven cost-effectiveness in reducing acute ischemic stroke (AIS) associated disability is intravenous thrombolysis with recombinant tissue plasminogen activator but ...
Impact of living and socioeconomic characteristics on cardiovascular risk in ischemic stroke patients
OBJECTIVE: We aimed to stratify the risk of vascular event recurrence in patients with cerebral infarction according to living and socioeconomic characteristics and geographic region. METHOD: The Outcomes in Patients ...
Head Position in Stroke Trial (HeadPoST) - sitting-up vs lying-flat positioning of patients with acute stroke: study protocol for a cluster randomised controlled trial
(Biomed Central Ltd., 2015)
BACKGROUND: Positioning a patient lying-flat in the acute phase of ischaemic stroke may improve recovery and reduce disability, but such a possibility has not been formally tested in a randomised trial. We therefore ...
