A systematic review of barriers to delivery of thrombolysis for acute stroke

Background and purpose: barriers within the patient pathway can prevent early administration of thrombolytic therapy in patients admitted with acute stroke. This systematic review aimed to identify such barriers that have been reported in the medical literature. Methods: we searched MEDLINE and EMBASE for prospective and retrospective observational studies that assessed the nature of barriers to delivery ...

A systematic review of brain frontal lobe parcellation techniques in magnetic resonance imaging

Manual volumetric measurement of the brain's frontal lobe and its subregions from magnetic resonance images (MRIs) is an established method for researching neural correlates of clinical disorders or cognitive functions. However, there is no consensus between methods used to identify relevant boundaries of a given region of interest (ROI) on MRIs, and those used may bear little relation to ...

A systematic review of brain metabolite changes, measured with H-1 magnetic resonance spectroscopy, in healthy aging

Background: H-1 MR spectroscopy (MRS) can identify metabolite abnormalities in age-related, neurological diseases. However, there is little information on how metabolites change with healthy aging. Methods: We systematically reviewed the literature on MRS, front 1980 to 2006, for studies where healthy young subjects (<60 years) were compared to healthy older subjects (>60 years). We extracted metabolite ...

A systematic review of clinical trials of pharmacological interventions for acute ischaemic stroke (1955-2008) that were completed, but not published in full

Background: We assessed the prevalence, and potential impact of, trials of pharmacological agents for acute stroke that were completed but not published in full. Failure to publish trial data is to be deprecated as it sets aside the altruism of participants' consent to be exposed to the risks of experimental interventions, potentially biases the assessment of the effects of therapies, and may lead ...

A Systematic Review of Dynamic Cerebral and Peripheral Endothelial Function in Lacunar Stroke Versus Controls

Background and Purpose-The etiology of cerebral small vessel disease is unknown. An association with endothelial dysfunction has been suggested. We systematically assessed all relevant studies of dynamic endothelial function in patients with lacunar stroke as a marker of small vessel disease. Methods-We searched for studies of cerebral or peripheral vascular reactivity in patients with lacunar or cortical ...

A systematic review of the utility of 1.5 versus 3 Tesla magnetic resonance brain imaging in clinical practice and research

OBJECTIVE: MRI at 3 T is said to be more accurate than 1.5 T MR, but costs and other practical differences mean that it is unclear which to use. METHODS: We systematically reviewed studies comparing diagnostic accuracy at 3 T with 1.5 T. We searched MEDLINE, EMBASE and other sources from 1 January 2000 to 22 October 2010 for studies comparing diagnostic accuracy at 1.5 and 3 T in human neuroimaging. ...

A test-retest fMRI dataset for motor, language and spatial attention functions

BACKGROUND: Since its inception over twenty years ago, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) has been used in numerous studies probing neural underpinnings of human cognition. However, the between session variance of many tasks used in fMRI remains understudied. Such information is especially important in context of clinical applications. A test-retest dataset was acquired to validate ...

A three-dimensional finite element model of maximal grip loading in the human wrist

The aim of this work was to create an anatomically accurate three-dimensional finite element model of the wrist, applying subject-specific loading and quantifying the internal load transfer through the joint during maximal grip. For three subjects, representing the anatomical variation at the wrist, loading on each digit was measured during a maximal grip strength test with simultaneous motion capture. ...
