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.

Round Table Discussion: The Latest Developments in Huntington Disease - CME

Other neuro diseases have progress.

Masters of Neurology: Avoiding MS Treatment Failure March 2017

 Stroke is stuck in a time warp where nothing is being done because no one will acknowledge that there are any problems in stroke. NO problems, nothing to fix, no usable research. Tell that to the 10 million disabled survivors a year. You'll get an earful.

Round Table Discussion: The Latest Developments in Huntington Disease - CME

Huntington disease (HD) is a rare neurodegenerative disorder of the central nervous system (CNS) characterized by abnormal involuntary movements, behavioral disturbance, cognitive dysfunction, and psychiatric disease. Currently, there is no established treatment to delay the onset or prevent the progression of HD, and available pharmacologic interventions for controlling the motor and non-motor aspects of the disease are limited. However, recent therapeutic advances, particularly in suppressing chorea, have been shown to have a favorable effect on motor function, safety, and quality of life. In this roundtable discussion, recorded immediately after the 2016 International Congress of Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders Meeting in Berlin, Germany, leading experts in HD explore some of the most recent evidence and latest developments in the treatment for this devastating disease
