In a selected group of right-handed patients with single stroke lesions of either the right (n = 14) or left (n = 22) hemisphere and no predisposing factors for psychiatric disorder, we found that the severity of depression was significantly increased in patients with left anterior lesions as opposed to any other lesion location. In addition, the severity(More)
Fifteen patients with bilateral hemisphere brain injury secondary to thromboembolic stroke or trauma were evaluated for depression, cognitive impairment, and functional physical impairment. Analysis of CT scans and standardized mood scales revealed that patients with left anterior brain injury were significantly more depressed than patients without such(More)
Thirty left-handed patients hospitalized for stroke were examined for mood disorders. Patients with left hemisphere lesions and nondominant hand impairments had significantly higher depression scores and more depressive diagnoses than patients with right hemisphere lesions and dominant hand impairments. Major depression was strongly associated with left(More)
Patients who developed post-stroke depression 3 to 24 months after hospital discharge (N = 21) were compared with patients who developed depression during hospitalization (N = 26) and patients who never developed depression over 24 months of follow-up (N = 15). During the acute hospitalization and at follow-up, the three groups were not significantly(More)
The efficacy of nortriptyline in the treatment of post-stroke depression was assessed by a double-blind study in thirty-four patients. Half of the patients had major depression. There was a significantly greater improvement in depression in patients treated with nortriptyline than in a similar group of placebo-treated patients. Depression was measured by(More)
BACKGROUND Stem-cell transplantation can cure primary immunodeficiencies. However, in patients with pre-existing organ toxicity, patients younger than 1 year, and those with DNA or telomere repair disorders, chemotherapy-based conditioning is poorly tolerated and results in major morbidity and mortality. We tested a novel antibody-based minimal-intensity(More)
Dexamethasone suppression tests (DSTs) were given to 65 acute and chronic stroke patients. For patients who had had a stroke less than 1 year earlier, nonsuppression on the DST was significantly associated with the presence of poststroke depression. The authors, who used the DSM-III symptom criteria for major depression, found that DST sensitivity was 67%(More)
