Use the labels in the right column to find what you want. Or you can go thru them one by one, there are only 12345 posts. Searching is done in the search box in upper left corner. I blog on anything to do with stroke.DO NOT DO ANYTHING SUGGESTED HERE AS I AM NOT MEDICALLY TRAINED, YOUR DOCTOR IS, LISTEN TO THEM. BUT I BET THEY DON'T KNOW HOW TO GET YOU 100% RECOVERED. I DON'T EITHER, BUT HAVE PLENTY OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTOR TO ANSWER.
Deans' stroke musings
Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all thetrillions and trillions of neuronsthateach daybecause there areeffective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 493 posts on hyperacute therapy, enough for researchers to spend decades proving them out. These are my personal ideas and blog on stroke rehabilitation and stroke research. Do not attempt any of these without checking with your medical provider. Unless you join me in agitating, when you need these therapies they won't be there.
What this blog is for:
Shortly after getting out of the hospital and getting NO information on the process or protocols of stroke rehabilitation and recovery I started searching on the internet and found that no other survivor received useful information. This is an attempt to cover all stroke rehabilitation information that should be readily available to survivors so they can talk with informed knowledge to their medical staff. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.

Circulating omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids and subclinical brain abnormalities on MRI in older adults: the Cardiovascular Health Study
So how much fatty fish should we be getting while in the hospital? I just recently started buying tins of sardines in mustard sauce and making sandwiches of them.
This would seem to confirm the use of fish oil as a pretreatment and post treatment for concussions.
of tuna or other broiled or baked fish, but not fried fish, is
associated with fewer subclinical brain abnormalities on magnetic
resonance imaging (MRI). We investigated the association between plasma
phospholipid omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), objective
biomarkers of exposure, and subclinical brain abnormalities on MRI.
METHODS AND RESULTS:
the community-based Cardiovascular Health Study, 3660 participants aged
≥ 65 underwent brain MRI in 1992-1994, and 2313 were rescanned 5 years
later. MRIs were centrally read by neuroradiologists in a standardized,
blinded manner. Participants with recognized transient ischemic attacks
or stroke were excluded. Phospholipid PUFAs were measured in stored
plasma collected in 1992-1993 and related to cross-sectional and
longitudinal MRI findings. After multivariable adjustment, the odds
ratio for having a prevalent subclinical infarct was 0.60 (95% CI, 0.44
to 0.82; P for trend = 0.001) in the highest versus lowest long-chain
omega-3 PUFA quartile. Higher long-chain omega-3 PUFA content was also
associated with better white matter grade, but not with sulcal or
ventricular grades, markers of brain atrophy, or with incident
subclinical infarcts. The phospholipid intermediate-chain omega-3 PUFA
alpha-linolenic acid was associated only with modestly better sulcal and
ventricular grades. However, this finding was not supported in the
analyses with alpha-linolenic acid intake.
older adults, higher phospholipid long-chain omega-3 PUFA content was
associated with lower prevalence of subclinical infarcts and better
white matter grade on MRI. Our results support the beneficial effects of
fish consumption, the major source of long-chain omega-3 PUFAs, on
brain health in later life. The role of plant-derived alpha-linolenic
acid in brain health requires further investigation.
