Researchers estimated a new device worn like a visor could detect an emergent large-vessel occlusion in patients with suspected stroke with 92% accuracy. Patients with large-vessel occlusions can then be routed to a Comprehensive Stroke Center with endovascular capabilities. The study was published in the Journal of Neurointerventional Surgery.
The osteoarthritis patients with worse levels of knee pain, younger age and less severe structural damage are more likely to respond to intra-articular hyaluronic acid injections, researchers report. The findings, published in Arthritis Research and Therapy, may help predict which patients with osteoarthritis would benefit most from hyaluronic acid therapy.
