Favorable outcome of blood urea nitrogen/creatinine –based hydration therapy 3 months after acute ischemic stroke
Dehydration is associated with acute ischemic stroke. However, the relationship between hydration therapy given during acute ischemic stroke and clinical outcomes remains unclear.
Conclusion Cardiac involvement is common and has significant prognostic implications in the evaluated patients with p.Glu89Gln mutation. Heart failure and rhythm disturbances are the main causes of death. An earlier identification of the disease is crucial to improve prognosis.
A new study led by Perelman School of Medicine found that just 2.4% of 844 coronavirus patients suffered an ischemic stroke, which occur when blood flow is blocked to the brain.
In hospitalized patients with COVID - 19, 2.4 percent had confirmed ischemic stroke, 0.9 percent had ICH
This study also demonstrated that TREM-1 expression was upregulated following cerebral infarction in rats. TREM-1 inhibition was determined using its selective inhibitor, LP17, which indicated a neuroprotective effect on cerebral infarction damage. The findings revealed that inhibition of TREM-1 by administering LP17 improved cerebral damage and decreased ischemic areas and brain water contents. Moreover, LP17 decreased MCAO-induced microglial activation and neurodegeneration, evidenced by a reduction in the expression of microglial Iba-1 and FJ-B positive cells, and reversed neuronal loss. Besides, the contribution of LP1...
This Viewpoint considers ischemic stroke risk for patients with a patent foramen ovale.
This meta-analysis examines the prevalence of high-risk plaques and the risk of ipsilateral ischemic events to assess the relevance and feasibility of using multimodal neurovascular imaging to perform risk-oriented selection for revascularization among patients with asymptomatic carotid stenosis.
To investigate the association between Bell's palsy and stroke according to the different types of stroke, using a sample cohort based on the national Korean population.
ConclusionThe Casper stents did not show superiority in the rate of incidence, number and size of new silent ischemic brain lesions detect by DW-MRI when compared to close cell stents during CAS under distal EPD.
Covid-19 has significant implications of hematologic systems, including lymphocytopenia, thrombocytopenia, ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke, pulmonary thromboembolism, and myocardial infarction [1,2]. Iwasaki et al. reported that the pathogen of Covid-19, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), can induce immune dysfunction, inflammation, and antibody-dependent enhancement by activating host cells via the Fc γIIa receptor in the same way as SARS-CoV-1 .
