Delivery, dose, outcomes and resource use of stroke therapy: the SSNAPIEST observational study
- Medicine, Psychology
To understand how stroke therapy is delivered in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and which factors are associated with dose, outcome and resource use, secondary analysis of the Sentinel Stroke National Audit Programme was used.
Stroke impairment categories: A new way to classify the effects of stroke based on stroke-related impairments
- Medicine, PsychologyClinical rehabilitation
People with the most and least severe categories were least likely to receive therapy, and received least therapy compared to −35 minutes/day of stay for the moderately severe categories.
Etiological Classification of Cerebral Ischemic Stroke by the TOAST, SSS-TOAST, and ASCOD Systems
- MedicineThe neurologist
Observer’s experience may affect the reliability of etiological classification systems in patients with ischemic stroke, particularly in the TOAST system.

The association between arterial stiffness, initial stroke severity, and 3 week outcomes in ischaemic stroke patients
The aim of this study was to investigate the association between arterial stiffness and stroke severity at presentation and at three weeks, and highlights the need for further research into the relationship between QKD and initial stroke severity.
A New Era in Acute Ischaemic Stroke Treatment: A Review of UK and European Thrombectomy Guidelines
A systematic review of the new trials that compare thrombectomy to best medical-care created a new protocol which encompasses the trial results and European recommendations, in the hope to assist physicians worldwide.
Diabetes and stroke in Qatar: results of a prospective stroke register
The results indicate that Qataris and Arabs are more at risk than other ethnic groups of lacunar infarcts and the group of patients with HbA1c≥ 6.5% features more prominently in all subtypes of ischaemic strokes.

The etiological diagnosis can be predicted by OCSP in TACI and PACI, but it is hard in POCI, and a number of LACI are due to LAA.
Pilot study of carotid surgery for acute stroke
- Medicine, PsychologyThe British journal of surgery
A randomized pilot study of urgent carotid surgery for acute stroke was undertaken to assess the feasibility of a definitive multicentre trial.
Accuracy of initial stroke subtype diagnosis in the TOAST study
- Medicine, PsychologyNeurology
It is concluded that clinical trials in stroke should not attempt to restrict entry into trials based on presumed stroke subtype, and a careful evaluation for etiology is justified in all patients presenting with stroke, regardless of presumed subtype.
Carotid artery and heart disease in subtypes of cerebral infarction.
A finding of carotid artery stenosis > or = 80% or occlusion, atrial fibrillation, or a major cardioembolic source detected at TTE or TEE was more frequent among patients with cortical symptoms from anterior or middle cerebral artery territories than among those with lacunar syndromes.

Pure Motor Hemiparesis and Sensorimotor Stroke: Accuracy of Very Early Clinical Diagnosis of Lacunar Strokes
- Medicine, PsychologyStroke
Pure motor hemiparesis and sensorimotor stroke diagnosed within 12 hours of the event are poorly predictive of lacunar strokes, and hence, the very early identification of these syndromes cannot be used for patient selection in therapeutic trials.
Validation of a clinical classification for subtypes of acute cerebral infarction.
- Medicine, PsychologyJournal of neurology, neurosurgery, and psychiatry
Although this classification system defines subtypes of stroke with different outcomes, simple clinical measures-level of consciousness, paresis, disability, and incontinence at onset-are more powerful predictors of death or dependency at one year.
