Objective It is uncertain if patients with cardioembolic stroke and absence of a guidance-based indication for statin therapy should be administered a statin for prevention of subsequent vascular events. This study was performed to determine whether the statin therapy is beneficial to prevent major vascular events in this population. Methods Using a prospective multicenter stroke registry database, we identified acute cardioembolic stroke patients who were hospitalized between 2008 and 2015. Patients who had other established...
Data from: Lipid profiles and obesity as potential risk factors of sudden sensorineural hearing lossJoong Seob Lee, Dong Hyun Kim, Hyo Jeong Lee, Hyung Jong Kim, Ja Won Koo, Hyo Geun Choi, Bumjung Park & Sung Kwang Hong
Objectives: The objective of our study was to establish whether increased lipid profiles and obesity affect the prevalence and prognosis of sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSNHL). Methods: This was a case-controlled study with a longitudinal design. According to our criteria, 324 patients with SSNHL were included in this study. To manage potential covariates, 972 subjects with normal hearing from the Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey were matched as control group according to their...
Objective: To improve epidemiological knowledge of neurological deterioration (ND) in patients with acute ischemic stroke (AIS). Methods: In this prospective observational study, we captured ND prospectively in 29,446 AIS patients admitted to 15 hospitals in Korea within 7 days of stroke onset. ND was defined as an increase in National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) score ≥2 (total), or ≥1 (motor or consciousness), or any new neurological symptoms. Change of incidence rate after stroke...
Data from: Profile of and risk factors for post-stroke cognitive impairment in diverse ethno-regional groupsJessica W Lo, John D Crawford, David W Desmond, Olivier Godefroy, Hanna Jokinen, Simin Mahinrad, Hee-Joon Bae, Sebastian Köhler, Elles Douven, Julie Staals, Christopher Chen, Xin Xu, Eddie J Chong, Rufus O Akinyemi, Rajesh N Kalaria, Adesola Ogunniyi, Mélanie Barbay, Martine Roussel, Byung-Chul Lee, Velandai K Srikanth, Christopher Moran, Nagaendran Kandiah, Russell J Chander, Behnam Sabayan, J. Wouter Jukema … & Perminder S Sachdev
OBJECTIVE: To address the variability in prevalence estimates and inconsistencies in potential risk factors for post-stroke cognitive impairment (PSCI) using a standardised approach and individual participant data (IPD) from international cohorts in the STROKOG consortium. METHODS: We harmonised data from thirteen studies based in eight countries. Neuropsychological test scores 2 to 6 months after stroke or TIA and appropriate normative data were used to calculate standardised cognitive domain scores. Domain-specific impairment was based on percentile...
Data from: Three-month modified Rankin Scale as a determinant of five-year cumulative costs after ischemic stroke: an analysis of 11,136 patients in KoreaSeong-Eun Kim, Heeyoung Lee, Jun Yup Kim, Keon-Joo Lee, Jihoon Kang, Beom Joon Kim, Moon-Ku Han, Kang-Ho Choi, Joon-Tae Kim, Dong-Ick Shin, Min-Ju Yeo, Jae-Kwan Cha, Dae-Hyun Kim, Hyun-Wook Nah, Dong-Eog Kim, Wi-Sun Ryu, Jong-Moo Park, Kyusik Kang, Jae Guk Kim, Soo Joo Lee, Mi-Sun Oh, Kyung-Ho Yu, Byung-Chul Lee, Hong-Kyun Park, Keun-Sik Hong … & Hee-Joon Bae
Objective: Stroke is a devastating and costly disease; however, there is a paucity of information on long-term costs and on how they differ according to 3-month modified Rankin scale (mRS), which is a primary outcome variable in acute stroke intervention trials. Methods: We analyzed a prospective multicenter stroke registry (Clinical Research Collaboration for Stroke in Korea) database through linkage with claims data from the National Health Insurance Service with follow up to December 2016.
