Predicting poststroke depression: biomarkers and beyond
from Psychiatry Advisor
Poststroke depression (PSD), which affects up to one-third of all stroke patients, is the most common psychiatric disorder to emerge after an acute stroke. Because PSD can presage poor outcomes, including longer hospitalizations and functional impairment, clinicians are seeking methods to identify PSD with more specificity than current measures and at an earlier stage of the disorder.
