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

Incidence of Acute Cerebrovascular Events Using Either Minimized or Standard Cardiopulmonary Bypass Circuit

Coronary artery bypass grafting with extracorporal circulation is established as the golden standard. The conventional cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) system is associated with inflammatory reaction, hemolysis, hemodilution an disturbances of the blood coagulation system. Also it's well known that neurological disturbances caused by embolic material and air bubbles are potential risks ...

Melodic-Intonation-Therapy and Speech-Repetition-Therapy for Patients With Non-fluent Aphasia

One of the few accepted treatments for severe non-fluent aphasia is Melodic Intonation Therapy (MIT). Inspired by the common clinical observation that patients can actually sing the lyrics of a song better than they can speak the same words, MIT emphasizes the prosody of speech through the use of slow, ...

Phase

RESTORE-IT-Study of Rifalazil in Chlamydia Pneumoniae Seropositive Patients With a History of Atherosclerotic Disease

To evaluate the effect of treatment with rifalazil versus placebo taken once weekly for 12 weeks on carotid atherosclerotic disease progression in patients who test positive for Chlamydia pneumoniae. Measurements of the carotid artery wall (intima-media thickness) and plaque characteristics will be evaluated with high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ...

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

Surgical Manipulation of the Aorta and Cerebral Infarction

Stroke is one of the most devastating complications following coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) with an overall incidence ranging from 2.0 % to 3.2 %. The presumed etiology for the majority of strokes after CABG is atheroembolism from the diseased aorta ascendens caused by surgical manipulation. Off-pump coronary artery bypass ...

The Effectiveness and Safety of Butylphthalide Soft Capsules in Secondary Prevention of Ischemic Stroke Trial

The efficacy and safety of Butylphthalide Soft Capsules (En Bi Pu, NBP)in acute ischemic stroke has been demonstrated in China recently. Its role in secondary prevention of ischemic stroke need to be evaluated.
