The current study aims to assess the quality of anticoagulation with warfarin in real world
practice of secondary stroke prevention in Korean patients with Atrial fibrillation (AF) and
to explore predictors for poor International Normalized Range (INR) control.
The main purpose of this trial is to determine whether Xingnaojing, intravenously
administered within 24 hours of symptom onset, improves the 3-month outcome in participants
with acute ischemic stroke.
Prospective, open-label study in 10 patients with Central Post Stroke Pain (CPSP). The study
will evaluate the effects of peripheral nerve blockade on spontaneous pain and evoked
thermal and mechanical responses in CPSP, and assesses the associated local anesthetic

The Shanghai Stroke Service System（4S） has been established as the network of stroke care in
greater Shanghai metropolitan area. The system includes 11 territorial-care hospitals and
their comprehensive stroke unites that provide 24h/7day acute stroke care to a population of
40 million in Shanghai. The System comprised of two consecutive phases, the acute phase that
emphasized on providing thrombolysis, and the in-hospital phase that concentrated on the

infarct growth according to Volumetric-subtraction mismatch volume.The recently published on
Stroke paper has proposed Coregistration mismatch to calculate the mismatch to replace
ischaemic penumbra, and it reignites hope for clinical application of the PWI/DWI mismatch.
But the correlation between the mismatch, calculated by Coregistration mismatch method,and
