Carotid artery stenting has emerged as an alternative to carotid endarterectomy especially in patients with high risk of carotid endarterectomy. Older age (≥80 years old) was recognized as one of the high risk factors of carotid endarterectomy. However, the association between older age and increased risk of adverse events for carotid artery stenting has been reported.… Read More...

Robot-assisted therapy is regarded as an effective and reliable method for the delivery of highly repetitive training that is needed to trigger neuroplasticity following a stroke. However, the lack of fully adaptive assist-as-needed control of the robotic devices and an inadequate immersive virtual environment that can promote active participation during training are obstacles hindering the achievement of better training results with fewer training sessions required.… Read More...

Both obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and altered cerebrovascular reactivity (CVR) are associated with increased stroke risk. Nevertheless, the incidence of abnormal CVR in patients with OSA is uncertain due to the high variability in the way CVR is measured both within and between studies.… Read More...
