This study investigated the effects of regular exercise participation on common carotid artery stiffness in patients recently diagnosed with transient ischaemic attack (TIA). A total of 21 male and 4 female participants (mean±s.d.; 66±12 years, 1.72±0.07 m, 85.5±12.4 kg), recruited within 2 weeks of TIA diagnosis, completed a risk stratification assessment(More)
Acute bilateral ptosis can be a hallmark of several serious neurological conditions. We present the first case of acute bilateral near-complete ptosis secondary to neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder. We suggest that clinicians should consider this disorder among the differential diagnosis of acute bilateral ptosis, especially if there are other(More)
We investigated if hemodynamic variability, cerebral blood flow (CBF) regulation, and their interrelationships differ between patients with transient ischemic attack (TIA) and controls. We recorded blood pressure (BP) and bilateral middle cerebral artery flow velocity (MCAv) in a cohort of TIA patients (n = 17), and age-matched controls (n = 15).(More)
Participation in exercise and education programs following transient ischemic attack (TIA) or minor stroke may decrease cardiovascular disease risk. The purpose of this study was to assess the long-term effect (3.5 years) of an exercise and education program administered soon after TIA or minor stroke diagnosis on clinical outcome measures (stroke(More)
BACKGROUND Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a major risk factor for stroke and is associated with increased stroke severity and greater morbidity and mortality. Anticoagulation is highly effective for preventing episodes of thromboembolism but remains under-utilised. AIMS The aim of this review was to estimate the short-term risk of thromboembolic events in(More)
Early exercise engagement elicits meaningful changes in peripheral blood pressure in patients diagnosed with transient ischaemic attack (TIA) or minor stroke. However, central hemodynamic markers may provide clinicians with important diagnostic and prognostic information beyond that provided by peripheral blood pressure readings. The purpose of this(More)
The New Zealand National Stroke Network introduced a National Stroke Thrombolysis Register on the first of January 2015 to assist with quality assurance and continuous service improvement. In the first 6 months, there were 179 [75 women, mean (SD) age 69.9 (14) years] treated with stroke thrombolysis out of a total of 2,796 ischaemic stroke patients, giving(More)
