1. Robotic-Assisted Gait Training Effect on Function and Gait Speed in Subacute and Chronic Stroke Population: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials

    Background: The review is intended to provide the effectiveness of robotic-assisted gait training (RAGT) for functional gait recovery in poststroke survivors through a systematic review and to provide evidence for gait speed improvements through the meta-analysis of randomized controlled t...

  2. Prevalence and Risk Factors of Cerebral Microbleeds in Patients with Nonvalvular Atrial Fibrillation: An Enhanced T2*-Weighted Angiography Imaging Study

    Background/Aims: Cerebral microbleeds (CMBs) may predict the occurrence of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). Warfarin use may cause ICH. It is still controversial whether warfarin increases CMBs in atrial fibrillation (AF) patients. The study aimed to investigate the prevalence of CMBs and r...

  3. Periventricular White Matter Lesions Influence Gait Functions in Parkinson’s Disease

    Objective: We quantitatively evaluated the gait of Parkinson’s disease (PD) patients over a 10-m course during normal walking and during dual-task walking while performing a calculation task, and clarified which parts of white matter lesions (WML) influence gait in PD patients. Methods: ...

  4. Objective Monitoring of Driving Behavior in Parkinson’s Disease: The Utility of the Chula Parkinson Car®

    Introduction: Driving competency is important to evaluate among individuals with Parkinson’s disease (PD). Driving in natural situations is the preferred assessment method; thus, we used a naturalistic driving environment to identify driving competency among individuals with PD in compar...

  5. Determinants of Patient Delay in Transient Ischemic Attack

    Introduction: Early diagnosis and stroke preventive treatment in patients with transient ischemic attack (TIA) are crucial, but hampered by delayed reporting of symptoms. Previous studies on causes of patient delay provided inconsistent results. We aimed to assess determinants of patient d...

  6. Association of Smell Identification Deficit with Alzheimer’s Disease Assessment Scale-Cognitive Subscale, Japanese Version Scores and Brain Atrophy in Patients with Dementia

    Introduction: Olfactory dysfunction is commonly associated with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and may be related to disorder of the central olfactory processing system. In this work, therefore, we examined the relationships between olfactory changes and the most affected cognitive domain or d...

  7. Pre-Operative Interictal Discharge Patterns and Magnetic Resonance Imaging Findings Affect Prognosis of Temporal Lobe Epilepsy Surgery

    Objective: This study investigated whether pre-operative interictal discharge patterns detected by electroencephalogram (EEG) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings affect the surgical prognosis in temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) patients. Methods: A retrospective analysis of 115 cases...

  8. Safety of Intravenous Thrombolysis for Acute Stroke in Patients with an Active Malignancy: Case Series and Review of the Literature

    Introduction: Evidence is scarce regarding the safety of alteplase for acute stroke in patients with an active malignancy. Methods: We reviewed medical records for patients with both conditions treated at our institution over a 2-year period. Results: Five patients were identified, of whic...

  9. Olfactory Identification among Various Subtypes of Parkinson Disease

    Introduction: This study is aimed at investigating the olfactory function among different subtypes of Parkinson disease (PD) and the impact of sex on smell identification test. Methods: In this cross-sectional study, we used Iran-smell identification test (Iran-SIT). PD severity was determ...

  10. Efficacy and Safety of Endovascular Thrombectomy for Ischemic Stroke in Nonagenarians

    Introduction: Increased life expectancy results in a rapid increase of nonagenarian patients presenting with acute ischemic stroke (AIS) caused by large vessel occlusion (LVO). We conducted this study to assess the efficacy and safety of endovascular thrombectomy (ET) in this age group wit...
