A diverse specialty: What students teach us about Neurology and "Neurophobia".

Authors:
Fraser Moore

Can J Neurol Sci 2020 May 26:1-19. Epub 2020 May 26.

McGill University Department of Neurology Montréal, Québec Canada.

Objective: To explore what elective students learn about the specialty of Neurology.

Methods: A prospective qualitative study using pre- and post-elective written questionnaires.

Results: Analysis concentrated on three main themes: What did students learn about the specialty of Neurology? What would they change about their experience? Did their opinions change? Major findings were: (i)_Pre- and post-elective the most frequent response for "what is the best thing about Neurology?" was the "process of localization" (ii) Post-elective students were less likely to cite the challenge or problem-solving aspect of neurology as the best thing while more emphasized the importance of the physical exam and the variety of cases.

COVID-19: Stroke Admissions, Emergency Department Visits, and Prevention Clinic Referrals.

Can J Neurol Sci 2020 May 26:1-10. Epub 2020 May 26.

Department of Clinical Neurological Sciences, Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry, Western University, London, ON, Canada.

We assessed the impact of the coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19) pandemic on code stroke activations in the ED, stroke unit admissions, and referrals to the stroke prevention clinic at London's regional stroke center, serving a population of 1.8 million in Ontario, Canada. We found a 20% drop in the number of code strokes in 2020 compared to 2019, immediately after the first cases of COVID-19 were officially confirmed. Read More

Can J Neurol Sci 2020 May 26:1-14. Epub 2020 May 26.

Southern Medical Program, University of British Columbia Okanagan, Kelowna, BC, Canada.

Regional patient and physician density patterns pose problems to accessing care for people with Parkinson disease, though telehealth may improve access. We surveyed and conducted a focus group for people with Parkinson disease in Interior BC regarding barriers to neurological care. Eighteen individuals completed the survey and seven parties joined the focus group. Read More

Access to allied health care services in Canadian interdisciplinary complex nerve injury programs.

Can J Neurol Sci 2020 May 26:1-12. Epub 2020 May 26.

British Columbia Centre for Complex Nerve Injury, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Nerve transfer surgery (NT) for patients with nerve and spinal cord injuries can result in dramatic functional improvements. As a result, interdisciplinary complex nerve injury programs (CNIPs) have been established in many Canadian centres, providing electrodiagnostic and surgical consultations in a single encounter. We sought to determine which allied health care services are included in Canadian CNIPs, at the 3rd Annual Canadian Peripheral Nerve Symposium. Read More

Detecting subtle cognitive impairment in multiple sclerosis with the MoCA test.

Can J Neurol Sci 2020 May 26:1-22. Epub 2020 May 26.

Département de psychologie, Université du Québec à Montréal, Montréal, Canada.

Background: Although cognitive deficits are frequent in multiple sclerosis (MS), screening for them with tools such as the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) test is usually not performed unless there is a subjective complaint. The Multiple Sclerosis Neuropsychological Questionnaire (MSNQ) is among the instruments most commonly used to assess self-reported subjective complaints in MS. Nonetheless, it does not always accurately reflect cognitive status; many patients with cognitive deficits thus fail to receive appropriate referral for detailed neuropsychological evaluation.

Electroencephalography in Predicting Short-Term Clinical Outcomes after Cardiac Arrest.

Can J Neurol Sci 2020 Apr 8:1-6. Epub 2020 Apr 8.

Department of Neurology, Incheon St. Mary's Hospital, College of Medicine, The Catholic University of Korea, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

Background: Early consciousness recovery after cardiac arrest (CA) is one of the most explicit and self-evident prognostic factors for clinical outcomes. We aimed to evaluate the prognostic value of electroencephalography (EEG) phenotypes according to the American Clinical Neurophysiology Society's Critical Care EEG classification for predicting early recovery after CA.

Methods: Consecutive patients admitted to the ICU after CA were enrolled. Read More

Cerebrospinal Fluid Flow Cytometry: Utility in Central Nervous System Lymphoma Diagnosis.

Can J Neurol Sci 2020 May;47(3):382-388

Department of Clinical Neurosciences, University of Calgary, Calgary, AB, Canada.

Background: Flow cytometry of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is used in isolation or as an adjunct to cytology to increase the sensitivity of detecting central nervous system (CNS) lymphoma. We aimed to evaluate the sensitivity of CSF flow cytometry as a diagnostic screening tool for primary CNS lymphoma in patients presenting with undifferentiated neurologic symptoms.

Methods: We retrospectively reviewed all CSF samples received by the Calgary Laboratory Services Flow Cytometry Laboratory from 2012 to 2015. Read More

The CAnadian High-Resolution Traumatic Brain Injury (CAHR-TBI) Research Collaborative.

Can J Neurol Sci 2020 Mar 16:1-6. Epub 2020 Mar 16.

Section of Neurosurgery, Department of Surgery, Rady Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Canada.

In traumatic brain injury (TBI), future integration of multimodal monitoring of cerebral physiology and high-frequency signal processing techniques, with advanced neuroimaging, proteomic and genomic analysis, provides an opportunity to explore the molecular pathways involved in various aspects of cerebral physiologic dysfunction in vivo. The main issue with early and rapid discovery in this field of personalized medicine is the expertise and complexity of data involved. This brief communication highlights the CAnadian High-Resolution Traumatic Brain Injury (CAHR-TBI) Research Collaborative, which has been formed from centers with specific expertise in the area of high-frequency physiologic monitoring/processing, and outlines its objectives.

Sex Differences in Stroke Rehabilitation Care in Alberta.

Can J Neurol Sci 2020 Mar 12:1-10. Epub 2020 Mar 12.

Department of Clinical Neurosciences, Division of Physical Medicine, Cumming School of Medicine, University of Calgary, Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Background: Female stroke patients may experience poorer functional outcomes than males following inpatient rehabilitation.

Methods: Data from Alberta inpatient stroke rehabilitation units were examined to determine: (1) the impact of sex on time to inpatient rehabilitation, functional gains (using the Functional Independence Measure (FIM)), length of stay (LOS), and discharge destination; (2) if sex was related to age at the time of stroke, stroke severity, and living arrangement at discharge from rehabilitation; and (3) whether patients' age and preadmission living arrangement had an influence on LOS in rehabilitation or discharge destination.

Results: Two thousand two hundred sixty-six adult stroke patients (1283 males and 983 females) were subcategorized as mild (FIM >80; n = 1155), moderate (FIM 40-80; n = 994), or severe (FIM <40; n = 117). Read More

Outcomes of Endovascular Thrombectomy for Basilar Artery Occlusion.

Can J Neurol Sci 2020 Mar 6:1-7. Epub 2020 Mar 6.

Hurvitz Brain Sciences Research Program, Sunnybrook Research Institute, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Background And Purpose: Large prospective observational studies have cast doubt on the common assumption that endovascular thrombectomy (EVT) is superior to intravenous thrombolysis for patients with acute basilar artery occlusion (BAO). The purpose of this study was to retrospectively review our experience for patients with BAO undergoing EVT with modern endovascular devices.

Methods: All consecutive patients undergoing EVT with either a second-generation stent retriever or direct aspiration thrombectomy for BAO at our regional stroke center from January 1, 2013 to March 1, 2019 were included. Read More
