In Ontario, the National Rehabilitation Reporting System (NRS) is mandated for use as a measurement of change for stroke patients after admission to and discharge from rehabilitation. The NRS includes the functional independence measure (FIM) and supplementary measurement items developed by the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI).… Read More...

The Alberta Stroke Program Early CT Score (ASPECTS) on baseline imaging is an established predictor of functional outcome in anterior circulation acute ischemic stroke (AIS). We studied ASPECTS before intravenous thrombolysis (IVT) and at 24 hours to assess its prognostic value.… Read More...

Most ruptured cerebral aneurysms are small (<7 mm). Evidence suggests low rupture rates for such lesions (<1% per year). Population studies demonstrate a prevalence rate of 3.2%. This study simultaneously estimates the prevalence of aneurysms in a single geographic population while reporting the observed rate of aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH) in the same geographic region composed of a poor urban minority demographic.

Stroke is one of the leading causes of disability and mortality. Patients who receive organized inpatient care in a stroke unit (SU) have better clinical outcomes. However, evidence on the cost analysis of an SU is lacking. The objective of this study was to assess the performance and analyze the cost-effectiveness of an SU.… Read More...

Isolated distal deep venous thrombosis (IDDVT) is a common complication after ischemic stroke. However, there is a paucity of evidence regarding the clinical features and risk factors of IDDVT in patients with acute ischemic stroke. This study aimed to establish and validate a clinical prediction scale of IDDVT at an early stage of ischemic stroke development.… Read More...

Dural venous sinus thrombosis (DVST) is a cause of infarction and intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) that can lead to significant morbidity. Endovascular therapy has emerged as an adjunctive therapy in select cases but has been associated with increased hemorrhagic complications. We present our experience with a large single-center cohort of DVST cases treated with current-generation thrombectomy devices.… Read More...
