【Technical Features】

As one of the earliest neurological specialty inZhenjiang, the department has accumulated affluent clinical experience in the treatment of neurological diseases, and the clinical treatment standard and academic capacity of the department take the leading place inZhenjiang. Several new technologies and new projects conducted by the department have fulfilled the blanks inZhenjiangand reached advanced level inJiangsuprovince. The treatment characteristics of the department are as follows:

 

1. Cerebrovascular Diseases: We have made a comprehensive set of standardization of early diagnosis, treatment, rescue and prevention of cerebrovascular diseases. And the clinical treatment standard of cerebrovascular diseases is the leading force inJiangsuprovince. ① We make 4 kinds of clinical pathway of cerebral infarction, namely thrombolysis, anticoagulation, defibrase and inhibition of platelet aggregation. The rescue success rate of severe cerebrovascular diseases is over 95% for many years. ② We have established the emergency green channel for cerebral infarction patients and performed the only ultra-early stage rt-PA intravenous thrombolytic therapy in Zhenjiang. ③ To those patients with ischemic cerebrovascular diseases who missed the time window, we offer them human urinary kininogenase to set up three-level collateral circulation, rescuing ischemia penumbra and reducing the loss of nerve function. ④ We have made deep research into the post-stroke depression and proven that hyperhomocysteinemia is related to post-stroke depression. The application of both medical and psychological intervention has reached satisfactory effect. ⑤ We use digital subtraction arteriography (DSA) to make judgment of the degree of vascular stenosis of cerebral infarction patients and perform carotid stenting in cooperation with neurosurgery. ⑥working together with Rehabilitation Department, we make ADL, NIHSS, mRS scale assessment for cerebral infarction patients and apply individualized rehabilitation to help patients’ recovery to the largest extent. ⑦ as the only screening base cerebral apoplexy, we also undertake the training of cerebrovascular diseases for basic-level medical staffs annually, while finishing the screening missions. ⑧At present, we have assumed four scientific projects supported by national, provincial and municipal foundations and published more than 20 pieces of theses.

 

2. Neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer disease and Parkinson's disease: We have set up clinic for Alzheimer disease and Parkinson's disease and made deep research into the pathogenesis and prevention. We have been granted two of the Third Prize of Zhenjiang Science and Technology Progress, published more than 10 pieces of thesis, and undertaken two projects of neurodegenerative disorders.

 

3. Cephalalgia: We have performed outpatient specialty of cephalalgia, set up records of outpatients, and achieved positive social effects. We have undertaken two of the municipal projects related to cephalalgia and published more than 10 pieces of theses.

 

4. Epilepsy: We have established clinical treatment for epilepsy. With the application of 24-hour dynamic and video EEG, we conduct the diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of coma. We also monitor the blood concentration of antiepileptic drugs, ensuring the safety and efficiency of medication.

 

5. Electrophysiology room: As the only nerve electrophysiology detection institute with official authentication for impairment evaluation inZhenjiang, the EMG and EEG are conducted by specialty doctors with senior professional title, ensuring the authenticity of impairment evaluation. At the same time, it offers the basis for correct diagnosis of motor neuron diseases, muscle diseases and peripheral neuropathy in clinical treatment.

 

6. Nursing: we have an experienced nursing group. As to the nursing of critically ill patients, especially the airway management, we have developed characteristic treatment and the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcer meet the international level.
