Cerebrovascular diseases

1.It was founded in 1984,and now is the diagnose and treatment center, teaching center and scientific research center of neurological diseases.

2.The Neurology Department gradually grew and expanded. Now we had 2 inpatient area and up to 100 hospital beds. Hence, a derivative clinical division mainly treating cerebral vascular disease was founded. Recently, we have founded second and third stroke rehabilitation connecting endemic area/hospital to realize the integration of diagnose, treatment and rehabilitation. Now our department has one endemic area of 99 hospital beds (including stroke unit), emergency green channel, neurologic intensive care unit, early rehabilitation area of stroke. We also have neuropsychological test room, embolus signal monitoring through long-playing transcranial doppler sonography (TCD), neurologic electrophysiological diagnosis detecting room, including electromyogram (EMG) and evoked potential(EP), video electroencephalogram , the cerebral vascular disease clinic, epilepsy clinic, dementia and neural degenerative disease clinic. And we also have cerebral vascular disease research room, neurologic psychology research room and pharmacoepidemiology research room.

3.Present technique echelon: 27 doctors, among which 8 have the title of a senior professional pos, 9 have Intermediate titles, 10 have primary titles; 3 are mentors of master postgraduate, 1 are mentors of doctor postgraduate, 2 enjoy the special allowance of the state council. 27 nurses, 4 technicians of TCD, 3 technicians of EMG ,2 technicians of EP and of VEEG, 3 rehabilitation therapists.

Accreditation
1.The first group of key discipline and specialties of Zhejiang province began from 1997, and was passed by provincial evaluation in 2000, when the tag of “key discipline and specialties of Zhejiang province” was formally hanged out.
2.In 2001, our department was permitted to be the state drug clinical research foundation (neurology), the head unit of neurologic epidemiological research center of Zhejiang province.
3.In 2002, our department was assessed to be the third “key supported college science of Zhejiang province”.
4.In 2005, we were assessed to be the fifth “key supported college science of Zhejiang province”.

Highlights
1.We have set up the first united stroke unit according to the international standard, which is accompanied by rehabilitation training room to carry out the early rehabilitation after stroke(including physical therapy and occupational therapy) and swallowing function assessment. And we had instituted integral document of “standard diagnose and treatment of cerebral vascular disease”.

2.We have developed interventional diagnose and treatment of CVD, independly carried out aortocranial angiography, stent implantation of intra- and extra-cerebral artery. Exept from the rutine examination, our TCD room also developed micro-embolus signal(MES) monitoring technique, which have not been carried out in any other hospital of zhejiang province.
 
3.We have also set up emergency green channel of strokes, carried out the intravenous thrombolysis by RT-PA within 3 hours from onset and emergent throbolysis within 3-9 hours from onset instructed by multimodality CT, which is the leading innovative technology and our department is one of the 4 hospitals developed bestly.

4.The CVD research room have designed and developed the V1.0 computer software of “stroke clinical data registration system”, and successfully set up the clinical scientific research platform. Now, we have primarily developed 3 research direction of CVD: (1)the clinical and basal research of acute CVD; (2) the clinical and basal research of depression after stroke; (3) the clinical and basal research of rehabilitation after stroke.

5.We have led 2 11-5 and 12-5 key technology supported programmes of medical psychology, carried out interventional treatment of insomnia and psychological disorders after disaster, fateful diseases such as cancer, and research on the psychological mechanism of hemispheric structural aphasia.

6.We have set up special clinic of epilepsy for a long time, and have developed the largest clinical following up data of epilepsy. It’s the treatment and research centra of epilepsy in southern region of Zhejiang province.

Shao Bei, graduated from Wenzhou medical college in 1983, major in clinical medicine. Now she is a member in Zhejiang neurology union of Chinese medical association, deputy head of  nerve electrophysiology group; vice chairwoman of wenzhou physical and rehabilitation therapy association; member in integrated traditional chinese and western medicine union of chinese medical doctor association; expert member in Zhejiang medical leading subject; director in department of cerebrovascular disease, deputy director of brain center, chief physician, professor, master's tutor.

Professor Shao has engaged in clinical, teaching, scientific research work for nearly 30 years, she has a well profound knowledge of basic theory of Neurology and experienced skilled clinical skills. Specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of neurogy diseases, particularly specializing in cerebrovascular diseases, peripheral nerve disease and Nerve electrophysiology. During these years, she treats her patients with high responsibility and masterly skill.

In 1995, she initiated nerve electrophysiological study in southern Zhejiang, established neural electrophysiology lab ( EMG / evoked potential ), offer a full set of neural electrophysiological examination projects. The past five years she was mainly engaged in the worth of the cavernosus reflex in localization diagnosis of the nervous system diseases, the mechanism in post-stroke depression and the relationship between stroke and neurogenesis.

For the past many years she has presided several national and provincial subject, received ministerial, provincial and municipal awards, published more than seventy papers at home and abroad, Edited and translated four books.
