Early Identification of Patients at Risk of Post Stroke Depressive Symptoms
“Cerebral Small Vessel Disease Burden Is Associated With Poststroke Depressive Symptoms: A 15-Month Prospective Study” supports the hypothesis that accumulated microvascular lesions are critical for the development of depressive symptoms. Therefore, the measurement of small vessel disease burden might facilitate the early identification of patients at risk of post stroke depressive symptoms after mild to moderate acute ischemic stroke (Front Aging Neurosci. 2018 Feb 28;10:46. doi: 10.3389/fnagi.2018.00046. eCollection 2018).
Anyone interested in future collaboration in this field of research is welcome to contact our key investigator, Prof Wai Kwong Tang of our Department of Psychiatry. Prof Tang’s research interest is in neuropsychiatry in stroke and substance abuse.
