BackgroundThe first-pass effect, defined as a complete or near-complete recanalization after one pass (first-pass effect) of a mechanical thrombectomy device, has been related to better clinical ou...
Background and purposeSuccessful reperfusion can be achieved in more than two-thirds of patients with usual large-vessel occlusion stroke causes treated with mechanical thrombectomy. However, the s...

The COVID-19 pandemic affecting all parts of the world is having huge implications for stroke care. Not only do stroke patients appear to be more susceptible to severe infection, but the pandemic is having major implications on how we deliver stroke care, while ensuing safety of both our patients and health care professionals. COVID-19 infection itself has also been described as a risk factor for stroke. The World Stroke Organization has been monitoring the impact of the pandemic globally, and h...

BACKGROUND: Sphenopalatine ganglion stimulation (SPG-Stim) for ischemic stroke, starting 8-24 h after onset and continuing through five days in a pooled analysis of two recent, randomized, sham-controlled trials, improved outcome of acute ischemic stroke patients with confirmed cortical involvement. As a neuromodulatory therapy, SPG-Stim differs substantially from existing pharmacologic (lytic and antiplatelets) and device (endovascular thrombectomy) acute ischemic stroke treatments. AIM: Focuse...

BACKGROUND: Pre-existing comorbidities can compromise recovery post-stroke. However, the association between comorbidity burden and patient-rated perceived impact has not been systematically investigated. To date, only observer-rated outcome measures of function, disability, and dependence have been used, despite the complexity of the impact of stroke on an individual. AIM: Our aim was to explore the association between comorbidity burden and patient-rated perceived impact and overall recovery, ...

INTRODUCTION: There is an urgent need to identify patients at high risk during the ongoing coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. Whether a history of stroke is associated with increased severity of disease or mortality is unknown. METHOD: We pooled studies from published literature to assess the association of a history of stroke with outcomes in patients with COVID-19. RESULTS: A pooled analysis of 4 studies showed a approximately 2.5-fold increase in odds of severe COVID-19. While a trend w...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: "Take Charge" is a novel, community-based self-directed rehabilitation intervention which helps a person with stroke take charge of their own recovery. In a previous randomized controlled trial, a single Take Charge session improved independence and health-related quality of life 12 months following stroke in Maori and Pacific New Zealanders. We tested the same intervention in three doses (zero, one, or two sessions) in a larger study and in a broader non-Maori and non-Pa...
