From inception, the London Stroke Project mandated daily consultant ward rounds on hyperacute stroke units (HASUs). This has limited impact without 7-day therapy services. The national clinical guideline for stroke 11 recommends a minimum of 45 minutes of each appropriate therapy that is required, for a minimum of 5 days a week.
In practice, it is almost impossible to meet. Stroke mimic diagnoses presenting to a hyperacute stroke unit Article (PDF Available) in Clinical medicine (London, England) 16(5) October.

Most recently, Lovblad et al (11) reported a diffusion-weighted imaging stroke sensitivity of 88%, Cited by: A thorough review of the literature led to the recognition of 16 anatomical areas which could be delineated on routine diffusion-weighted MR images.
A database of consecutive ischemic stroke patients examined with MRI less than 6 h after symptoms onset was thereafter processed in a retrospective way.
Hyperacute refers to care provided in the first 24 hours for stroke and 48 hours for TIA1. The focus of this phase is to diagnose the type of stroke, coordinate and deliver treatment as quickly as possible.

This involves closing smaller units and bringing resources and qualified staff together into one large unit.
This model save lives and money but adoption has been slow. A hyperacute stroke unit should have immediate access to: • Specialist medical staff • Emergency stroke treatments • Specialist nursing staff • Consultant review 7 days a week 2.
Patients with acute stroke should be directly admitted to a HASU and be assessed for emergency stroke treatments without delay 3. Hyperacute stroke pathways. The hyperacute pathway is focused on identification and treatment of stroke patients suffering an ischaemic stroke. It aims to treat a patient using recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) within h of the onset of symptoms potentially combined with endovascular therapy (EVT) within 6 h of by: 7.
The strategy consolidated the treatment of all early-phase (first 72 hours) acute stroke patients in London within eight specialized high volume centers designated hyperacute stroke units, or. Early hyperacute stroke in a year-old woman with right lower extremity weakness and rigidity.
