High blood pressure (BP) after stroke is associated with a poor outcome. However, exercise training or speech therapy for patients with stroke can raise the BP. The aim of this study was to examine cardiovascular responses during the moving beans task (MBT) used in occupational therapy and to study the influence of psychological characteristics on cardiovascular responses during this task in healthy subjects.… Read More...

In post-stroke patients, the possibility of performing an active ankle dorsiflexion movement is favorable for the recovery of gait. Moreover, the fatigue due to repetitive active ankle dorsiflexion could reduce the speed gait. We assessed the change in coefficient of fatigability of active ankle dorsiflexion after a home-based self-rehabilitative procedure in post-stroke patients.… Read More...

Untreated infective endocarditis (IE) often produces infective emboli in major cerebral arteries. We describe a case of middle cerebral artery occlusion due to IE, which caused severe vasospasm and reocclusion after mechanical thrombectomy (MT). We present the pathologic findings of the occluded middle cerebral artery and investigate the precautions to be taken while performing MT due to IE.… Read More...

Delayed cerebral ischemia is a major cause of morbidity after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage. The management for preventing the delayed cerebral ischemia is clinically difficult because of its multifactorial nature. We tested the hypothesis that spatial and temporal changes of regional cerebral blood flow after subarachnoid hemorrhage might relate to the incidence of the delayed cerebral ischemia and the clinical outcome.… Read More...

IMM-H004 (7-hydroxy-5-methoxy-4-methyl-3-[4-methylpiperazin-1-yl]-2H-chromen-2-one) is a novel coumarin derivative that showed better effect in improving global cerebral ischemia in rats. However, the effects and mechanisms in focal cerebral ischemia were not clear. Blood–brain barrier (BBB) protection is a vital strategy for the treatment of cerebral ischemia.… Read More...

We examined platelet transfusion (PTx) in the Ethnic/Racial Variations of Intracerebral Hemorrhage (ERICH) study, hypothesizing that rates of PTx would vary among hospitals and depend on whether patients were on an antiplatelet therapy or underwent intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) surgical treatment.

Molecular hydrogen (H2) acts as a therapeutic antioxidant. Inhalation of H2 gas (1-4%) was effective for the improvement of cerebral infarction in multiple animal experiments. Thus, for actual applications, a randomized controlled clinical study is desired to evaluate the effects of inhalation of H2 gas.… Read More...

We investigated the effects of acrobatic training (AT) on expression of α-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazolepropionic acid receptor (AMPAR) subunits in the sensorimotor cortex and striatum after intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH).
