Particulate Matter and Hospital Admissions for Stroke in Beijing, China: Modification Effects by Ambient Temperature Stroke

ConclusionsThis study suggests that the associations of PM2.5, PM2.5–10, and PM10 with stroke admissions differed across levels of temperature. Short‐term exposure to PM2.5, PM2.5–10, and PM10 was positively associated with hospital admissions for ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke on warm days (>13.5°C).

Our aim in this study is to characterize the clinical and neuroradiological features of patients with LAA stroke and c-SAH.A retrospective study from a single institution was performed between January 2016 and June 2020. Only patients diagnosed with c-SAH and LAA stoke were included in this study. The clinical presentation and neuroimaging finding were summarized by our experience...

We aimed to investigate the specific risk factors for the development of ischaemic and haemorrhagic stroke in stable CAD patients.Patients with stable CAD were prospectively enrolled for future cardiovascular events in Taiwan. All the patients had received coronary interventions and were stable for least 1 month before enrolment. The incidence of ischaemic stroke was identified and confirmed by telephone and hospital records. Baseline characterist...

Purpose of review The aim of this study was to summarize available evidence regarding the safety and efficacy of intravenous thrombolysis (IVT) using recombinant tissue-plasminogen activator (rt-PA) in acute ischemic stroke (AIS) patients with specific comorbidities and potential contraindications to systemic reperfusion therapy. Recent advances in IVT implementation in wake-up stroke and in extended time window using advanced neuroimaging will also be highlighted. Recent findings Despite theoretical concerns of a higher bleeding risk with IVT, there are no data showing increased risk of symptomatic intracerebra...

Purpose of review Blood pressure management in acute stroke has long been a matter of debate. Epidemiological data show that high blood pressure is associated with death, disability and early stroke recurrence, whereas the pathophysiological rationale for ensuring elevated blood pressure in order maintain adequate cerebral perfusion remains a pertinent argument, especially in ischaemic stroke. Recent findings The European Stroke Organisation Guidelines on blood pressure management in acute ischaemic stroke and intracerebral haemorrhage provide recommendations for the appropriate management of blood pressure in v...

Purpose of review Direct oral anticoagulants (DOAC) are the mainstay of anticoagulant therapy for stroke prevention in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation. Persistent uncertainties remain in different areas, and this review discusses current dilemmas based on selected studies. Recent findings Optimal timing of DOAC initiation after a recent ischaemic stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation is currently unknown and subject of ongoing randomized controlled trials. Ischaemic stroke despite anticoagulant therapy in patients with atrial fibrillation is frequent, constitutes heterogeneous causes (competi...

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Endovascular thrombectomy (EVT) is standard of care for anterior circulation acute ischemic stroke (AIS) caused by large vessel occlusion (LVO), but data on nationwide performance in routine healthcare are sparse. The study aims were to describe EVT patients with LVO AIS, analyze mortality and functional outcome, and compare results with randomized controlled trials (RCTs).METHODS: Data from the Riksstroke and the Swedish Endovascular Treatment of Acute Stroke Registry (RSEVAS) on pre-stroke independ...

CONCLUSIONS: M2 thrombectomy is safe and a significant proportion of patients achieve a good clinical outcome. Advanced age, atrial fibrillation and previous treatment with anticoagulants were predictors for poor outcome. Good outcome was achieved when effective recanalization was obtained.PMID:35043725 | DOI:10.1177/15910199221074881

CONCLUSION: We found no differences between stroke subtypes and APS types. aPL profiles were not associated with any of the acute cerebrovascular diseases described in this cohort. CVT may be an initial thrombotic manifestation of APS with low mortality and good long-term functional outcome.PMID:35042376 | DOI:10.1177/09612033221074178

AbstractMoyamoya disease (MMD) is a rare cerebrovascular disease characterized by progressive spontaneous bilateral occlusion of the intracranial internal cerebral arteries (ICA) and their major branches with compensatory capillary collaterals resembling a “puff of smoke” (Japanese: Moyamoya) on cerebral angiography. These pathological alterations of the vessels are called Moyamoya arteriopathy or vasculopathy and a further distinction is made between primary and secondary MMD. Clinical presentation depends on age and population, with hemorrhage and ischemic infarcts in particular leading to severe neurolo...
