  • The volume covers topics such as causative factors of stroke such as hypertension, the immune system, genetic factors and the neurovegetative system, to the role of new imaging techniques in improving diagnosis and treatment, from preventive therapy and recanalization to the important and intriguing effects of neuroprotection, neuroregeneration and post stroke rehabilitation. (eurekaselect.com)

  • An overview of the role of physical therapy in stroke rehabilitation, provided by Heads Up! (dmoztools.net)
  • treatment of stroke
  • Readers will be able to understand perspectives from stroke medicine researchers about the relationship between the nervous system and other physiological systems in the body and their role in the onset and treatment of stroke. (eurekaselect.com)

  • Overview of the University of Pittsburgh's study of neuronal cell transplantation for the treatment of stroke. (dmoztools.net)
  • prediction
  • Relating WMH to stroke risk prediction scores may have advantages over the use of individual risk factors because a risk score provides a quantitative probability of stroke accounting for the cumulative cardiovascular risk factor burden. (ahajournals.org)
  • dementia
  • Background and Purpose- Previous studies of cardiovascular risk factors and white matter hyperintensity (WMH) on brain MRI have been limited by the failure to exclude symptomatic cerebrovascular disease and dementia or by the use of semiquantitative rather than quantitative methods to measure WMH volume (WMHV). (ahajournals.org)
  • We examined the relationship between Framingham Stroke Risk Profile (FSRP) and WMHV measured quantitatively in a stroke and dementia-free subset of the Framingham Offspring Cohort. (ahajournals.org)
  • or (3) failure to exclude subjects with a history of symptomatic stroke or dementia. (ahajournals.org)
  • 1,7,8,27 Stroke and dementia are associated with elevated WMH burden and may confound relationships between WMH and cardiovascular risk factors. (ahajournals.org)
  • The current study examines the relationship between the Framingham Stroke Risk Profile (FSRP) and individual cardiovascular risk factors and WMHV in a community-based sample of individuals free of stroke and dementia using quantitative MRI methods. (ahajournals.org)
  • interventions
  • however, it was not sufficiently reliable for tracking stroke volume changes after haemodynamic interventions. (sigmaaldrich.com)
  • Although medical interventions to prevent and manage stroke have advanced considerably over the last two decades, they are not consistently implemented worldwide. (eurekaselect.com)
  • Today, early interventions are available to reduce the likelihood of such disabilities after a stroke. (dmoztools.net)

  • impedance
  • The conventional method of calculating stroke volume (SV) with impedance has been to measure changes in thoracic impedance for only those beats of the impedance cardiogram (IC) which cross on a specific baseline. (semanticscholar.org)
  • velocity
  • The plug flow velocities can be differentiated and integrated against time to derive acceleration, peak velocity and stroke distance. (wikipedia.org)
  • continuous
  • The FSRP and its component risk factors measured a mean of 7.5 years before MRI were related to both continuous measures of LWMHV and to the presence of large volumes of LWMHV (LWMHV-large). (ahajournals.org)
