A nomogram-based clinical tool for acute ischemic stroke screening in prehospital setting

Alireza Baratloo; Mahtab Ramezani; Hosein Rafiemanesh; Meisam Sharifi; Somayeh Karimi

Volume 22, Issue 1 , January 2023, , Pages 58-62

  Background: We believe that designing a new tool which is comparable in terms of both sensitivity and specificity may play an important role in rapid and more accurate diagnosis of acute ischemic stroke (AIS) in prehospital stage. Therefore, we intended to develop a new clinical tool for the diagnosis ...  Read More

The effect of pyridostigmine on post-stroke dysphagia: A randomized clinical trial

Abbas Rahimi-Jaberi; Yadollah Askari; Khojasteh Rahimi-Jaberi; Mohammad Moghadam

Volume 21, Issue 2 , April 2022, , Pages 98-104


  Background: Swallowing is one of the most complex functions of the central nervous system (CNS), which is controlled by different parts of the brain. Oropharyngeal dysphagia (OD) is one of the most common complications after stroke. Despite a variety of behavioral, compensatory, and rehabilitative methods, ...  Read More

Safety and efficacy of remote ischemic preconditioning in patients with severe carotid artery stenosis before carotid artery stenting: A proof-of-concept, randomized controlled trial

Maedeh Asadi; Etrat Hooshmandi; Fatemeh Emaminia; Hanieh Mardani; Ali Mohammad Keshtvarz-Hesamabadi; Mojtaba Rismanchi; Abbas Rahimi-Jaberi; Vahid Reza Ostovan; Nima Fadakar; Afshin Borhani-Haghighi

Volume 21, Issue 2 , April 2022, , Pages 119-124


  Background: Remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) has been proposed as a possible potential treatment for ischemic stroke. This study aimed to investigate the frequency of micro-embolic brain infarcts after RIPC in patients with stroke who underwent elective carotid artery stenting (CAS) treatment.Methods: ...  Read More

Investigation of therapeutic effects of wearable robotic gloves on improving hand function in stroke patients: A systematic review

Shima Fardipour; Mohammad Hadadi

Volume 21, Issue 2 , April 2022, , Pages 125-132


  Background: Over the past decades, wearable robotic gloves due to their positive features are used by clinicians to improve motor function in the upper extremity. This systematic review aims to evaluate the studies that investigated the therapeutic effects of wearable robotic gloves to improve hand function ...  Read More

Cerebral border zone infarctions: An etiologic study

Mazyar Hashemilar; Parla Tohidi; Nasrin Forghani; Elyar Sadeghi-Hokmabadi; Ehsan Sharifipour

Volume 21, Issue 1 , January 2022, , Pages 1-6


  Background: Cerebral border zone infarctions (BZIs) are a subtype of acute ischemic stroke that occur at the junction between two major cerebral arterial territories. Internal and external BZIs are defined based on the known patterns in brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). However, the etiology and ...  Read More

Assessment of computed tomography perfusion RAPID estimated core volume accuracy in patients following thrombectomy

Riwaj Bhagat; Allison Muha; Kerri Remmel; Wei Liu

Volume 21, Issue 1 , January 2022, , Pages 17-22


  Background: Computed Tomography Perfusion (CTP) maps ischemic core volume (CV) and penumbra following a stroke; however, its accuracy in early symptom onset is not well studied. We compared the accuracy of CTP RAPID estimated CV with diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) infarct volume (IV) in patients following ...  Read More

Brain, heart, and sudden death

Shahram Oveisgharan; Fariborz Ghaffarpasand; Peter Sörös; Mustafa Toma; Nizal Sarrafzadegan; Vladimir Hachinski

Volume 21, Issue 1 , January 2022, , Pages 40-51


  During the past 30 years, rate of coronary artery disease, as the main cause of sudden death, has decreased more than rate of sudden death. Likewise, cause of sudden death remains elusive in not a trivial portion of its victims. One possible reason is attention to only one organ, the heart, as the cause ...  Read More

Low-dose versus standard-dose alteplase for intravenous thrombolysis in patients with acute ischemic stroke in Iran: Results from the safe implementation of treatments in stroke registry

Elyar Sadeghi-Hokmabadi; Abdoreza Ghoreishi; Reza Rikhtegar; Payam Sariaslani; Shahram Rafie; Alireza Vakilian; Ehsan Sharifipour; Masoud Mehrpour; Mohammad Saadatnia; Mohammad Mirza-Aghazadeh-Attari; Mehdi Farhoudi

Volume 20, Issue 4 , October 2021, , Pages 208-213


  Background: Rates of intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) after intravenous thrombolysis (IVT) differ depending on ethnicity, one reason that few Eastern countries have approved a lower dose of alteplase. Data in this regard are scarce in the Middle Eastern region. Methods: The present retrospective study ...  Read More

Accuracy of prehospital ambulance stroke test in terms of diagnosis of patients with acute ischemic stroke: A multi-center study

Somayeh Karimi; Farhad Heydari; Sahar Mirbaha; Mohamed Elfil; Alireza Baratloo

Volume 19, Issue 4 , October 2020, , Pages 196-199


  Background: Andsberg et al. have recently introduced a novel scoring system entitled “PreHospital Ambulance Stroke Test (PreHAST)”, which helps to early identification of patients with acute ischemic stroke (AIS) even in prehospital setting. Its validity has not been assessed in a study yet, ...  Read More

Lower limb motor function and hip muscle weakness in stroke survivors and their relationship with pelvic tilt, weight-bearing asymmetry, and gait speed: A cross-sectional study

Vishakha Darak; Suruliraj Karthikbabu

Volume 19, Issue 1 , January 2020, , Pages 1-7


  Background: Poor motor recovery of hip muscles affect the walking post-stroke. The study objective was to examine how lower extremity motor function and hip muscle weakness are related to weight-bearing asymmetry (WBA), excessive pelvic tilt, and gait speed in stroke survivors. Methods: Eighty patients ...  Read More
