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.

A new study shows e-ASPECTS correlates with and is a predictor of outcome after mechanical thrombectomy

You better hope that your stroke meets the criteria to use this intervention. There should be protocols for every type of stroke, No stroke patient left behind.

Oxford – A new study shows e-ASPECTS correlates with and is a predictor of outcome after mechanical thrombectomy. With mechanical thrombectomy gaining ground as a possible treatment for patients suffering from acute ischemic stroke, it is even more important to select those patients who can derive the most benefit.
e-ASPECTS has proved to be a patient selection tool which can assist, in line with international guidelines, in selecting the ones who are more likely to benefit from mechanical thrombectomy.
This study, the first with e-ASPECTS in patients who all underwent mechanical thrombectomy, confirmed substantial agreement of e-ASPECTS with manual ASPECTS done by expert readers. During the study, patients with low e-ASPECTS scores (0-5) showed a high probability of unfavorable outcome.
The results of this study have been published in the American Journal of Neuroradiology.
Dr. Michalis Papadakis, Brainomix CEO, stated: "This is the first clinical study to demonstrate e-ASPECTS correlation with treatment outcomes after mechanical thrombectomy. We are very excited that this study further demonstrates the significant value of e-ASPECTS in supporting and optimizing life-saving treatment decisions."
