Interdisciplinary treatment for chronic pain lowers the rate of related sickness absences from work, a recent study has found. A history of such absences is the strongest predictor for the future need to skip work due to chronic pain-related symptoms.
Modulating brain oscillations through transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS) seems to be ineffective at modulating experimental pain, autonomic response, or electroencephalography (EEG) oscillations, a recent study has found.
Posterior-circulation arterial supply and the presence of arteriovenous malformation contribute to an increased risk of perioperative stroke among patients undergoing endovascular therapy, according to a study.
Adoption of a diet rich in fruits, cereals, and fish confers benefit for the risk of lumbar spinal stenosis, whereas the consumption of ultra-processed foods (UPFs) in greater amounts is associated with a risk increase, a study suggests.
Wearable surface electromyograpghy (EMG) sensors can detect arm muscle activity in stroke survivors during standard acute care even if no such activity was observed during traditional clinical examination, according to a recent study.
Dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) with cilostazol performs better than either aspirin or clopidogrel alone at reducing the risk of recurrent stroke or vascular events without increasing the incidence of bleeding for patients with ischaemic stroke and intracranial arterial stenosis, according to the results of the CSPS.com* trial.
