This observational, longitudinal cohort study enrolled 149

Carpal Tunnel: Nerve Assessment Using Ultrasound Technology

Carpal Tunnel: Nerve Assessment Using Ultrasound Technology Overview  Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a prevalent nerve condition commonly diagnosed through symptoms and nerve tests. Recent advances in ultrasound technology, particularly Shear Wave Elastography (SWE), offer new possibilities for diagnosis. However, defining clear diagnostic criteria remains a challenge. This research aims

Hyperglycemia Reveals Mortality Risk In Hospitalized Stroke Victims

Hyperglycemia Reveals Mortality Risk In Hospitalized Stroke Victims Overview The study aimed to assess various indicators of stress-induced hyperglycemia in predicting in-hospital outcomes for patients with acute intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). Utilizing data from the Chinese Stroke Center Alliance database, which encompasses a large, nationwide cohort, the researchers examined stress-induced hyperglycemia through two

Endovascular Thrombectomy Outcomes In Stroke: The Truth About HT Or ICH Risk

Endovascular Thrombectomy Outcomes In Stroke: The Truth About HT Or ICH Risk Overview The study investigated the occurrence of hemorrhagic transformation (HT) and symptomatic intracranial hemorrhage (sICH) following endovascular thrombectomy (EVT) in patients with acute ischemic stroke (AIS). Through a retrospective analysis of 118 patients who underwent EVT for acute anterior circulation

Success Of Vagus Nerve Stimulation In Epileptic Encephalopathies

Success Of Vagus Nerve Stimulation In Epileptic Encephalopathies Developmental and epileptic encephalopathies (DEE) encompass epilepsies accompanied by developmental impairments, which may arise from underlying causes or epileptic activity, leading to cognitive and behavioral issues. Conditions like Dravet and Rett syndromes, linked to single gene defects, typically manifest in infancy or early

Nanosized Traditional Chinese Medicine Technology To Overcome The Blood-Brain Barrier

Nanosized Traditional Chinese Medicine Technology To Overcome The Blood-Brain Barrier Overview This review explores the intersection of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and nanotechnology, known as nano-TCM, as a promising avenue for overcoming the challenges posed by the blood-brain barrier (BBB) in treating central nervous system (CNS) diseases. While TCM has demonstrated efficacy
