41. CRACKCast E101 – Stroke

a patient presenting with TIA? A simple but suboptimal assessment called the ABCD2 score (ie. ABCD squared, for Age, Blood pressure, Clinical features, Duration of symptoms, and Diabetes) was designed to identify patients at high risk of ischemic stroke in the first seven days after TIA. It’s frowned upon because it was designed for the primary care setting and doesn’t do a very good job in predicting who is high or low risk in real life.

44. Is Transient Ischemic Attack a Medical Emergency? OHTAC Recommendation

, where patients can be evaluated and treated urgently, results in lower rates of stroke and disability than conventional treatment. About half of strokes following TIA occur within the first 48 hours; therefore, patients with TIA should be evaluated as early as possible within 24 hours of first call to medical attention. Patients at high risk of stroke may require admission to a stroke unit for further evaluation and appropriate treatment. This review showed that patients with an ABCD2 score of 4 (...) or higher have significantly higher rates of stroke or recurrent TIA if they receive standard treatment and are discharged from an ED, compared to patients who are hospitalized. This may indicate that higher-risk patients need more comprehensive, intensive investigation and management than lower-risk patients. At the same time, this analysis identified limitations to the use of ABCD2 risk scores in assessing which patients are at higher risk of stroke. ABCD2 risk scores do not reflect the absence

46. The HINTS Exam to Differentiate Central from Peripheral Vertigo

outperformed the initial MRI with diffusion-­‐weighted imaging, which had a sensitivity for stroke of only 88%. Similar diagnostic properties were identified in the 2nd paper ( ) which compared the accuracy of the HINTS exam to the ABCD2 score in 190 patients from the cross-sectional cohort. The ABCD2 score is a clinical prediction rule to predict short-term stroke risk following a transient ischemic attack. While this comparison seems contrived and unfair, the HINTS test performed quite well

48. Autonomic Parameter and Stress Profile Predict Secondary Ischemic Events After Transient Ischemic Attack or Minor Stroke. (Abstract)

Autonomic Parameter and Stress Profile Predict Secondary Ischemic Events After Transient Ischemic Attack or Minor Stroke. Background and Purpose- Traditional risk factors for ischemic stroke are body stressors that are related to autonomic autonomic system (ANS) dysfunction. The value of ABCD2 score (age, blood pressure, clinical features, duration of symptoms, diabetes) to predict ischemic stroke after transient ischemic attack is compromised by the inclusion of a limited number of stressors (...) . We aimed to assess whether markers of ANS function and stress could predict the occurrence of secondary ischemic events after transient ischemic attack or minor stroke. Methods- This is a prospective cohort study in which 201 patients were recruited within 48 hours after initial transient ischemic attack or minor stroke and followed for 90 days to assess the development of secondary ischemic events. ABCD2 score, heart rate variability (HRV) parameters as markers of ANS function, and psychological

stroke risk at 1 week, 3 months and 1 year after TIA, and to determine the predictive value of the dichotomized ABCD2 score (0-3 vs 4-7) at each time point. We used data obtained by telephone follow-up and registry data from the Norwegian Stroke Register.Five hundred and seventy-seven patients with TIA were enrolled of which 85% were examined by a stroke specialist within 24 h after symptom onset. The cumulative incidence of stroke within 1 week, 3 months and 1 year of TIA was 0.9% (95% CI, 0.37-2.0 (...) ), 3.3% (95% CI, 2.1-5.1) and 5.4% (95% CI, 3.9-7.6), respectively. The accuracy of the ABCD2 score provided by c-statistics at 7 days, 3 months and 1 year was 0.62 (95% CI, 0.39-0.85), 0.62 (95% CI, 0.51-0.74) and 0.64 (95% CI, 0.54-0.75), respectively.We found a lower stroke risk after TIA than reported in earlier studies. The ABCD2 score did not reliably discriminate between low and high risk patients, suggesting that it may be less useful in populations with a low risk of stroke after TIA.Unique

Nine (82%) sought medical attention. The median ABCD2 score in this group was 4.5 (IQR: 3-7), and the median time of event prior to stroke was 20 days (IQR: 4-32).In our population-based cohort, rates of TIA preceding ischaemic stroke were much lower than previously reported, probably reflective of effective

with alteplase for acute ischemic stroke within 4.5 hours from stroke onset. Minor stroke is usually defined as NIHSS score ≤ 3 or 5,although it accounts for 1/2-2/3 of AIS, the evidence of thrombolysis is insufficient. A study from Canada shows that 28.5% of patients with minor stroke who have not receive rt-pa thrombolytic therapy are unable to walk independently when discharged. Based on such a consideration,the PRISMS study further compares the efficacy and safety of thrombolytic therapy (...) even if the patient's condition has worsened, is clinically more puzzling. The CHANCE study in 2013 shows that the efficacy of aspirin with clopidogrel is superior to aspirin alone with minor stroke (NIHSS < 3) or TIA(ABCD2 < 4). The POINT study in 2018 further confirmed the efficacy and safety of intensive antithrombotic therapy within 12 hours of onset with minor stroke. Based on the above discussion, this study aims to explore the efficacy and safety of aspirin with clopidogrel vs alteplase

for effective triage as medical intervention for true TIA/minor stroke is time-sensitive and TIA unit spots are a finite resource.Prospective cohort study design utilizing patient referral data and TIA unit arrival times from a regional fast-track TIA unit on Vancouver Island, Canada, accepting referrals from emergency departments (ED) and general practice (GP).

A retrospective survival curve analysis, censored at 28 days to unit arrival, was used to compare days to unit arrival from event date between cohort patients matched by low (0-3), moderate (4-5) and high (6-7) ABCD2 scores.Survival curve analysis indicated that using the novel triage system, prospectively referred TIA/minor stroke patients with low and moderate ABCD2 scores arrived at the unit 2 and 1 day earlier than matched historical patients

56. Uncertainty as a Key Influence in the Decision To Admit Patients with Transient Ischemic Attack. Full Text available with Trip Pro

administrative data to identify admission rates and chart review data to identify ABCD2 scores (a tool to classify stroke risk after TIA).Providers' decisions to admit TIA patients were related to uncertainty in several domains: lack of a facility TIA-specific policy, inconsistent use of ABCD2 score, and concerns about facilities' ability to complete a timely workup. There was a disconnect between staff perceptions about TIA admission and facility admission rates. According to chart review data, staff (...) at facilities with higher admission rates in FY 2011 reported consistent reliance on ABCD2 scores and related guidelines in admission decision-making.Many factors contributed to decisions regarding admitting a patient with TIA; however, clinicians' uncertainty appeared to be a key driver. Further quality improvement interventions for TIA care should focus on facility adoption of TIA protocols to address uncertainty in TIA admission decision-making and to standardize timely evaluation of TIA patients

years (+/-18). Median (IQR) ABCD2 score was 3 (2-4). Median (IQR) delay from onset to evaluation was 8 h (4-48). Overall, 185 (52%) were referred by OBP vs. 169 (48%) by ED. Evaluation was initiated within 12 h among 201 (57%) patients. After logistic regression, OBP referral was by comparison with ED the only independent factor associated with an evaluation delay >12 h (OR 5.7, 95% CI: 3.5-9.3, p < 0.0001). Conclusion: Our results suggest that preliminary assessment by OBP may increase the delay
