International PFO Consortium

Background The prevalence of patent foramen ovale (PFO) is about 25% in the general population and approximately 40% in patients who have ischemic stroke of unknown cause (cryptogenic stroke). Given the large number of asymptomatic patients, no primary prevention is currently recommended. On the contrary, secondary prevention is very important. ...

Phase N/A

Natural History of Stroke: Cause and Development

OBJECTIVE: This is a natural history/disease pathogenesis protocol for evaluation of patients with or at risk for acute stroke, transient ischemic attack (TIA), or other disturbances of cerebrovascular circulation. The purpose of this protocol is to generate natural history data to serve as the basis for future hypothesis-driven protocols as ...

Phase N/A

Mindful Hearts Study

Evidence demonstrates that chronic stress doubles the risk of myocardial infarction and contributes to proinflammatory processes implicated in coronary artery disease and stroke. Veterans who have experienced combat are at greater risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD) compared to noncombat Veterans and non-Veterans. However, previous research has focused primarily on male ...

Phase N/A

Psychoeducation for Transient Ischaemic Attack and Minor Stroke

Participants will complete measures at baseline and then randomly allocated to receive the intervention or usual care. The intervention group will receive a group psychoeducational intervention (designed in Phase 1: Qualitative study) in addition to self-help leaflets and usual care. It is anticipated that the intervention will be offered in ...

Phase N/A

Characteristics of Blood- Brain Barrier Permeability in Neurological Patients

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the most common traumatic events, occurring in approximately 200 per 100,000, and is a known risk factor for later development of epileptic seizures. This occurs in up to 17% of TBI patients, and accounts for approximately 20% of symptomatic epilepsies (Annegers, JF. et ...

Phase N/A

Prognostic Value of Cardiac and Renal Markers in Ischemic Stroke and Transient Ischemic Attack

Patients with ischemic stroke or TIA will be included in the 48 hours following the onset of symptoms, in 3 university hospitals.For each patient will be collected - 1 blood sample for the BNP measure in pg/ml - 1 blood sample for the Cystatin C measure in mg/l - 2 ...

Phase N/A

Transcranial and Rapid Magnetic Stimulation for Gait Apraxia Due to Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus and Cerebral Ischemia

The transcranial monitoring intensity would be equivalent to the well known CLOTBUST study (<300mw/sq cm)for one hour, using two probes. All will be treated as an outpatient and there is no form of infusion or interventional treatment. The rapid magnetic stimulation is at about 50a/us, 15Hz, 1000 pulses with 10 ...

Phase N/A

Short-Term Prognosis Evaluation of Transient Ischemic Attack Patients Using ABCD2 Score

The feasibility of risk stratification of patients with acute transient ischemic attack admitted to Beijing anzhen hospital by the ABCD2 score system is yet to be determined. The aim of this paper was to evaluate and validate the short-term prognosis of TIA patients in Peking area using this new score ...

Phase N/A

Sleep Apnea in Cerebrovascular Disease

The study will evaluate a diagnostic/therapeutic intervention among veterans with cerebrovascular disease, hypertension, and obesity using unattended polysomnography to diagnose sleep apnea and CPAP with an adherence/educational protocol to treat sleep apnea. Electronic databases will be used to identify patients at two VA medical centers with cerebrovascular disease (stroke or ...

Phase N/A

Smoking Cessation Intervention After Stroke or Transient Ischaemic Attack.

Patients with stroke or transient ischemic attach should receive advise on smoking cessation. It is however unknown if an intensive smoking cessation program is better than ordinary advise on smoking cessation during hospitalisation for stroke or transient ischemic attack. The aim of the study was to assess if an intensive ...
