    • Impact of different methods defining post-stroke neurocognitive disorder: The Nor-COAST study 

      Munthe-Kaas, Ragnhild; Aam, Stina; Ihle-Hansen, Hege; Lydersen, Stian; Knapskog, Anne Brita; Wyller, Torgeir Bruun; Fure, Brynjar; Thingstad, Pernille; Askim, Torunn; Beyer, Mona K.; Næss, Halvor; Seljeseth, Yngve Müller; Ellekjær, Hanne; Pendlebury, Sarah T.; Saltvedt, Ingvild (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020-03-16)
      Introduction Post‐stroke neurocognitive disorder (NCD) is common; prevalence varies between studies, partially related to lack of consensus on how to identify cases. The aim was to compare the prevalence of post‐stroke ...
    • Is long-bout sedentary behaviour associated with long-term glucose levels 3 months after acute ischaemic stroke? A prospective observational cohort study 

      Alme, Katinka Nordheim; Knapskog, Anne Brita; Næss, Halvor; Naik, Mala; Beyer, Mona K.; Ellekjær, Hanne; English, Coralie; Ihle-Hansen, Hege; Kummeneje, Camilla S.; Munthe-Kaas, Ragnhild; Saltvedt, Ingvild; Seljeseth, Yngve Müller; Tan, Xiang chun; Thingstad, Pernille; Askim, Torunn (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Background and purpose Sedentary behaviour is a risk factor for vascular disease and stroke patients are more sedentary than their age-matched peers. The association with glucose levels, as a potential mediator, is ...
    • The Norwegian Cognitive impairment after stroke study (Nor-COAST): study protocol of a multicentre, prospective cohort study 

      Thingstad, Pernille; Askim, Torunn; Beyer, Mona K.; Bråthen, Geir; Ellekjær, Hanne; Ihle-Hansen, Hege; Knapskog, Anne Brita; Lydersen, Stian; Munthe-Kaas, Ragnhild; Næss, Halvor; Pendlebury, Sarah; Seljeseth, Yngve Müller; Saltvedt, Ingvild (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-11-26)
      Background: Early and late onset post-stroke cognitive impairment (PCI) contributes substantially to disability following stroke, and is a high priority within stroke research. The aetiology for PCI is complex and related ...
    • Pre-stroke cognitive impairment is associated with vascular imaging pathology: a prospective observational study 

      Schellhorn, Till; Zucknick, Manuela; Askim, Torunn; Munthe-Kaas, Ragnhild; Ihle-Hansen, Hege; Seljeseth, Yngve Müller; Knapskog, Anne Brita; Næss, Halvor; Ellekjær, Hanne; Thingstad, Pernille; Wyller, Torgeir Bruun; Saltvedt, Ingvild; Beyer, Mona Kristiansen (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Background Chronic brain pathology and pre-stroke cognitive impairment (PCI) is predictive of post-stroke dementia. The aim of the current study was to measure pre-stroke neurodegenerative and vascular disease burden found ...
    • Stroke unit demand in Norway – present and future estimates
