Aerobic Walking Exercise for Non-Ambulatory Stroke Survivors

By doing this study, researchers hope to learn the effects of aerobic exercise on heart, lung, and bone health in people who cannot walk after a stroke.

Phase N/A

Novel Oral Anticoagulants in Stroke Patients

Background: For decades, oral anticoagulation with vitamin K antagonists (VKA) has been the sole option for the treatment of a variety of diseases like venous thrombosis, pulmonary embolism and the prevention of stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation. Despite its clinical efficacy, the treatment with VKA is associated with multiple ...

Phase N/A

Spatial Neglect and Delirium After Stroke

Delirium assessment and prevention has a tremendous impact on hospitalization outcomes and health care costs. Delirium is a multi-component syndrome characterized by an acute reduction in cognitive functioning, affecting awareness, thinking, attention, and memory. Stroke survivors, representing 17% of the US population aged 65 and over (CDC, 2012), are at ...

Phase N/A

Epidemiology of Silent and Overt Strokes in Sickle Cell Anemia

Sickle cell anemia is a rare disease occurring in an estimated 66,000 children and adults, often poor and underserved, in the United States. Strokes and silent strokes contribute significantly to illness burden in adults with sickle cell anemia, resulting in impairment, challenges with school and job performance, and premature death. ...

Phase N/A

Family-Clinician Collaboration to Improve Neglect and Rehabilitation Outcome After Stroke

Spatial neglect (SN) frequently occurs in patients who have had a stroke. The problems caused by SN result in patients failing to attend to the space contralateral to the side of the stroke. This failure to attend to half of the patient's field may result in problems with perception, memory, ...

Phase N/A

New Technology for Individualised Intensive Training of Gait After Stroke- Study II

The effectiveness of the interventions will be assessed in terms aspects of body function, walking ability and endurance as well as level of activity in daily living and participation assessed at the end of intervention and at a 6 and 12 months follow-up. Intensive gait training with HAL is performed ...

Phase N/A

Optimal Blood Pressure and Cholesterol Targets for Preventing Recurrent Stroke in Hypertensives

ESH-CHL-SHOT will randomize about 7500 participants aged > or = 65 years with SBP > or = 140 mmHg or antihypertensive therapy, who have presented a stroke or TIA, within 1 to 6 months before randomization. The trial will investigate the effects of randomization to antihypertensive treatment of different intensities, ...


Efficacy of Fluoxetine - a Trial in Stroke

Stroke is a serious, life-threatening medical condition that happens when the blood supply to a part of the brain is cut off, usually due to a blood clot (ischemic) or hemorrhage. Symptoms vary according to how much of the brain is affected and where in the brain the stroke occurs ...


Treatment of Intracerebral Hemorrhage in Patients on Non-vitamin K Antagonist

Novel, non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOAC) target selected players in the coagulation cascade as the direct thrombin inhibitor dabigatran and the factor Xa-inhibitors apixaban and rivaroxaban. Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is the most feared complication of NOAC treatment (NOAC-ICH). Outcome of NOAC-ICH can be devastating and is a major cause ...


Effect of Bilateral TENS With TOT on Upper Limb Function in Patients With Chronic Stroke

This proposed study aims to compare the effects of unilateral and bilateral transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS). It will compare the effectiveness of bilateral TENS + task-oriented training (TOT) with unilateral TENS+TOTin improving upper limb function in patients with chronic stroke. The null hypothesis will be that bilateral TENS+TOT and ...
