Brief Summary:
A single-center registry of patients with acute ischemic stroke, intracerebral hemorrhage, and transient ischemic attack (TIA) who are emergently managed in the stroke care unit in the National Cerebral and Cardiovascular Center (NCVC) to determine change in underlying characteristics, stroke features and severity, process for diagnosis and acute treatment, and long-term outcomes of stroke/TIA patients over the years.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Stroke, Acute Other: No intervention

Detailed Description:

This is a single-center registry of consecutive patients with acute ischemic stroke, intracerebral hemorrhage, and transient ischemic attack (TIA) who are emergently managed in the stroke care unit in the National Cerebral and Cardiovascular Center, a flagship stroke center in Japan.

Neurological emergencies other than stroke/TIA and subclinical cerebrobvascular inpatients are also enrolled.

Data are collected and analyzed to determine change in underlying characteristics, stroke features and severity, process for diagnosis and acute treatment, and long-term outcomes of stroke/TIA patients over the years.

The National Cerebral and Cardiovascular Center was founded in 1977 in Suita, Osaka, in order to provide the public with the most advanced treatment for cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases and to conduct the highest level of basic as well as applied research on the cardiovascular and cerebrovascular systems.

a single-center prospective observational study




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The modified Rankin Scale (mRS), a measure of disability [ Time Frame: 3 monhts ]
    mRS scores range from 0 (no symptoms at all) to 6 (death)


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of participants [ Time Frame: at entry ]
    Also assessing underlying patients' characteristics prior to index stroke/TIA

  2. National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale score [ Time Frame: at entry ]
    Also assessing neurological and cognitive states

  3. Volume of culprit infarcts/hematoma [ Time Frame: at entry ]
    ASPECTS on DWI for ischemia or hematoma volume using the ABC/2 method

  4. The modified Rankin Scale (mRS), a measure of disability [ Time Frame: around 3 weeks ]
    mRS scores range from 0 (no symptoms at all) to 6 (death). Participants will be followed at hospital discharge, an expected average of 3 weeks.

  5. The modified Rankin Scale (mRS), a measure of disability [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    mRS scores range from 0 (no symptoms at all) to 6 (death)

  6. Events of cardiovascular diseases including stroke/TIA [ Time Frame: around 3 weeks ]
    Participants will be followed at hospital discharge, an expected average of 3 weeks.

  7. Events of cardiovascular diseases including stroke/TIA [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
  8. Events of cardiovascular diseases including stroke/TIA [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
