Unusual Cause of Dysphagia in a Post-Stroke Patient

We describe the evaluation and treatment of a 53-year-old man with a history of intracerebral hemorrhage in the left basal ganglia who presented with dysphagia caused by a vallecular cyst.

Conclusions: We established the Joinville Stroke Biobank and discuss its potential for contributing to the understanding of the risk factors leading to stroke.RESUMO Com o objetivo de contribuir para estudos que utilizam informa ções clínicas e genômicas de biobancos, apresentamos os resultados iniciais do primeiro Biobanco Latinoamericano em Acidente Vascular Cerebral (AVC). Métodos: Foram coletadas amostras de sangue de pacientes recrutados pelo Registro de AVC de Joinville e posteriormente de quatro cidades brasile iras. Foram registrados dados socioeconômicos demográficos,...

Authors: Raffini L Abstract The evolution of devices for mechanical circulatory support (MCS), including ventricular assist devices (VADs) for patients with heart failure and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) for patients with acute cardiac or respiratory failure, has improved survival for subsets of critically ill children and adults. The devices are intricate and complex, allowing blood to bypass the heart or lungs (or both). As blood flows through these artificial devices, normal hemostasis is disrupted, coagulation is promoted, and in the absence of anticoagulation, a thrombus may form in the device, r...

CONCLUSIONS: Acute neuropathy after ketoacidosis is rare complication and its pathomechanism is not clear. Patients with DKA require careful monitoring of neurological functions even after normalization of glycemic parameters. PMID: 29217500 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Discussion The OCEAN trial is a multicenter randomized controlled trial evaluating two antithrombotic treatment strategies for patients with risk factors for stroke after apparently successful AF ablation. We hypothesize that rivaroxaban will reduce the occurrence of clinically overt stroke, systemic embolism, and covert stroke when compared to ASA alone.

AbstractAneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH) is associated with high socio-economic burden. Prothrombotic states of early brain injury (EBI) and delayed cerebral ischemia (DCI) after aSAH determine morbidity and mortality. To understand how activated platelets might contribute to such prothrombotic states, we studied trends in coated-platelets during EBI and DCI periods. Serial blood samples from a prospective cohort of aSAH patients were collected and assayed for coated-platelet levels. Patient ’s coated-platelet level during post-hospital discharge follow-up served as an estimate of baseline. Occurrence of DCI...

Abstract Hemorrhagic stroke is a devastating cerebrovascular disease with significant morbidity and mortality worldwide. Thrombospondins (TSPs), as matricellular proteins, belong to the TSP family which is comprised of five members. All TSPs modulate a variety of cellular functions by binding to various receptors. Recently, TSPs gained attention in the area of hemorrhagic stroke, especially TSP-1. TSP-1 participates in angiogenesis, the inflammatory response, apoptosis, and fibrosis after hemorrhagic stroke through binding to various molecules including but not limited to CD36, CD47, and TGF-β. In this review...

Conclusions Our results indicate that quadriceps muscle thickness decreases in patients with acute aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage, particularly in patients with poor Hunt and Hess grade or marked disability. PMID: 29216792 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

IntroductionCardioembolic stroke (CS) in patients without thrombolytic treatment is associated with a worse clinical outcome and higher mortality compared to other types of stroke. The aim of this study was to determine the clinical outcome of CS in patients treated by intravenous thrombolysis (IVT). Material and methodologyData of patients from the SITS‐EAST register (Safe Implementation of Treatments in Stroke) were analyzed in patients who received IVT treatment from 2000 to April 2014. The effect of the stroke etiology according to ICD‐10 classification on outcome was analyzed using a univariate and multivariate an...

Nowadays, researchers had begun to focus on the use of antiplatelet and statins in patients with spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage (sICH), but atherosclerosis treatment remains uncertain in these patients. We aimed to investigate the incidence and characteristics of intracranial and extracranial atherosclerotic stenosis in these patients and analyze its related risk factors.
