The COVID-19 pandemic has necessitated public health measures that have impacted the provision of care for people living with dementia and their families. Additionally, the isolation that results from social distancing may be harming well-being for families, as formal and informal supports become less accessible. For those with living with dementia and experiencing agitation, social distancing may be even harder to maintain, or social distancing could potentially aggravate dementia-related neuro...

Importance Earlier administration of intravenous tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) in acute ischemic stroke is associated with reduced mortality by the time of hospital discharge and better functional outcomes at 3 months. However, it remains unclear whether shorter door-to-needle times translate into better long-term outcomes. Objective To examine whether shorter door-to-needle times with intravenous tPA for acute ischemic stroke are associated with improved long-term outcomes. Design, Setting...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to evaluate random forests (RFs) to identify ROIs on F-florbetapir and F-FDG PET associated with Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) score. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fifty-seven subjects with significant white matter disease presenting with either transient ischemic attack/lacunar stroke or mild cognitive impairment from early Alzheimer disease, enrolled in a multicenter prospective observational trial, had MoCA and F-florbetapir PET; 55 had F-FDG PET. Scans were...

OBJECTIVES To test the hypotheses that peak skeletonized mean diffusivity (PSMD), a measure of cerebral white matter microstructural disruption, is 1) increased in patients with cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) compared to normal control (NC), mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and Alzheimer's disease (AD); 2) associated with neuropsychological test performance among CAA patients; and 3) increased more quickly over one year in CAA than in AD, MCI, and NC. METHODS Ninety-two participants provided ...

Objective: Better methods for detecting preclinical neuropathological change are required for prevention of dementia. Mild behavioral impairment (MBI) and subjective cognitive decline (SCD) can represent neurobehavioral and neurocognitive axes of early stage neurodegenerative processes, which are represented in Stage 2 of the NIA-AA Alzheimers disease research framework. Both MBI and SCD may offer an opportunity for premorbid detection. We test the hypothesis that MBI and SCD confer additive ris...

Background: The U.S. lacks an appropriate stroke surveillance system. This study developed and validated post-stratification weights for an existing stroke patient registry to represent the entire ...
This document provides guidance on implementing evidence-based stroke care during the COVID-19 pandemic, based on expert opinion from the Canadian Stroke Best Practices Advisory Committee. Despite incomplete and rapidly evolving evidence, we offer early guidance without formal recommendations and evidence grades because urgent changes are necessary. This guidance is based on expert opinion and early shared experiences with reorganizing stroke systems at the time of writing (April 13, 2020). This...

KEY POINTS In 2016, 270 204 people in Canada (excluding Quebec) were admitted to hospital for heart conditions, stroke and vascular cognitive impairment, including 107 391 women and 162 813 men, of whom 91 524 died.[1][1] This equates to 1 out of every 3 deaths in Canada and outpaces other diseases
