Stroke: Overview of Hemorrhagic Stroke and Ruptured Aneurysm
Dr. Raymond Turner, a neurosurgeon at the stroke treatment centers of MUSC, discusses hemorrhagic stroke, which involves bleeding in the brain. He identifies presenting symptoms associated with bleeding from a ruptured aneurysm or abnormal vessel and overviews therapeutic options. Dr. Turner lays out the process of care for surgically treatable cases by South Carolina stroke specialists.

This study aimed to compare the long-term outcome of triple antithrombotic therapy (TAT) with that of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) after AMI. This was a nationwide, propensity score-matched, case –control study of 186,112 first AMI patients, of whom 2,825 received TAT comprising aspirin, clopidogrel, and warfarin. Propensity score matching in a ratio of 1:4 by age, sex, comorbidities, and treatment was adopted, Finally, 2,813 AMI patients and 11,252 matched controls that were administered TAT and DAPT (aspirin and clopidogrel), respectively, were included in our analysis. The 12-year overall survival rate did not...
CONCLUSION: During the open-label extension, annual rates of stroke or systemic embolism, hemorrhagic stroke, and major bleeding remained as low as those observed during apixaban treatment in AVERROES. These data support the long-term efficacy and safety of apixaban in patients with atrial fibrillation. PMID: 33011964 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: We hypothesize that the whole-body cryotherapy was responsible for this stroke. PMID: 32994067 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: Long-term incidence of thromboembolism was extremely low in patients with AF treated with CA, while that of major bleeding was not especially low. Clinical Trials Registry: UMIN000032829 / UMIN000032830. PMID: 33011056 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionsConsidering the high risk of both thromboembolic and hemorrhagic events of patients undergoing LAAO, establishment of an appropriate antithrombotic therapy in terms of efficacy and safety after LAAO is of vital importance.Trial registrationEudraCT number: 2018-001013-32
ConclusionIn NVAF patients of all ages initiating either apixaban or warfarin for stroke prevention in the Sentinel System, apixaban was associated with a decreased risk of GI bleeding, ICH, and ischemic stroke compared with warfarin. Among patients less than 65 years of age, apixaban use was associated with a decreased risk of GI bleeding and ischemic stroke.
ConclusionsWe concluded that there was no significant difference between PVT patients presenting with subtherapeutic and high INR levels who received thrombolytic treatments regarding both minor and major bleeding complications as well as response to thrombolysis.
AbstractIntracranial hemorrhage (ICH) occurs when a blood vessel ruptures in the brain. This leads to significant morbidity and mortality, the likelihood of which is predicated on the size of the bleeding event. X-ray computed tomography (CT) scans allow clinicians and researchers to qualitatively and quantitatively diagnose hemorrhagic stroke, guide interventions and determine inclusion criteria of patients in clinical trials. There is no currently available open source, validated tool to quickly segment hemorrhage. Using an automated pipeline and 2D and 3D deep neural networks, we show that we can quickly and accurately ...
ConclusionNOACs were effective in preventing stroke/SE and reducing the risk of ICH in patients with both NVAF and CAD.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved
Authors: Huang S, Lu X, Tang LV, Hu Y Abstract The efficacy and safety of intravenous thrombolysis (IVT) for acute ischemic stroke (AIS) in cancer patients remained uncertain due to low level evidence in the latest guideline for AIS. The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy and safety of IVT in cancer patients with stronger evidence. We searched Medline, Embase, CENTRAL and ClinicalTrials.gov until April 2020 for studies reporting outcomes of functional independence, hemorrhagic transformation (HT), symptomatic intracranial hemorrhage (SICH), major bleeding (MB), in-hospital mortality or 3-month mortality a...
