Deans' stroke musings

Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all the trillions and trillions of neurons that DIE each day because there are NO effective 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.
My back ground story is here:

Hot Topics: Advances in Stroke

If these three guys are supposed to be experts, we are totally screwed. Not one of them mentioned any of the prevention ideas I've written about and whats worse is no mention of the neuronal cascade of death. All it was about is status quo stuff. That is nowhere close to being able to handle the upcoming tsunami of stroke. They should be hanging their heads in shame. If I was a real bastard I'd be writing to their institutions demanding to know when someone intelligent and innovative takes over.
Only 3min 13 seconds of blah.
What works and what doesn't work in stroke? We asked three experts in the field for their take: Joseph Broderick, MD, director of the UC Neuroscience Institute at the University of Cincinnati and UC Health, James C. Grotta, MD, director of stroke research in the Center for Innovation & Research at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center, and Thomas G. Brott, MD, of the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fla. In this video, they discuss stents, tPA, and artery bypass. What's not working includes clot removal and some recent devices.
F*CK it all - There is absolutely nothing working in stroke. If you don't know that get the hell out and let some intelligent people solve the stroke problems.
