3612. Prophylactic mirtazapine may help to prevent post-stroke depression in people with good cognitive function Full Text available with Trip Pro

: 360 days. Setting: Stroke unit in academic medical centre in Ludwigshafen, Germany. Patients: Seventy people who had suffered an ischaemic stroke, confirmed by MRI or CT scan. People were excluded if they were currently using antidepressants, were depressed in the two weeks before stroke, were less than 18 years old, pregnant or breastfeeding, or had dysphasia that would interfere with psychiatric testing. Intervention: Treatment was 30 mg of mirtazapine once daily at bedtime and commenced one day (...) have introduced a bias in favour of active treatment. More than 90% of people screened for recruitment were not enrolled as participants. Exclusion criteria included inability to give informed consent, aphasias that interfered with recruitment or assessment, and haemorrhagic stroke. Results may not, therefore, generalise to all patients with stroke. Commentary Post-stroke depression (PSD) is common and underreported. PSD may be seen up to seven years after stroke and it may lead to worse outcomes

to produce the most frequent statistically significant cognitive effects, with CBZ favoured for the majority of the tests used. Other AEDs were only represented by one or two small trials. One study comparing PHT and CBZ in adults with partial and generalised seizures found the results of the Stroop Colour Word Test, the Trail Making Test, and the Hapstead-Wepman Aphasia Test all significantly favoured CBZ, although the remainder of the 12 tests used found no significant differences.

They also report that there are no absolute indications for cricophayngeal myotomy, and that currently available clinical data do not strongly support treatment with cricopharyngeal myotomy for neuropathic or myopathic causes of oropharyngeal dysphasia.

in tabular format. For the 19 studies where follow-up and incidence of aspiration pneumonia could be determined, the results were also presented graphically. How were differences between studies investigated? The studies were presented in tables according to whether they were composed of patients with neurogenic dysphasia only, or whether they included a mix of patients (including those with neurogenic dysphasia).
