Cystatin C, a novel indicator of renal function, reflects severity of cerebral microbleeds
Conclusion: Cystatin C may be the most sensitive indicator of CMB severity among the renal disease markers.
CONCLUSION: This study describes the current status of acute stroke care in Korea. Despite quite acceptable quality of stroke care, it suggests regional and hospital disparities. Expansion of stroke units, stroke center certification or accreditation, and connections between stroke centers and emergency medical services are highly recommended.

Authors: Gattellari M, Goumas C, Jalaludin B, Worthington JM Abstract OBJECTIVES: Epidemiological trends for major causes of death and disability, such as stroke, may be monitored using administrative data to guide public health initiatives and service delivery. METHODS: We calculated admissions rates for ischaemic stroke, intracerebral haemorrhage and subarachnoid haemorrhage between 1 January 2005 and December 31st, 2013 and rates of 30-day mortality and 365-day mortality in 30-day survivors to 31 December 2014 for patients aged 15 years or older from New South Wales, Australia. Annual Average Percentage...

This cohort study examines the age-specific prevalence and prognosis of asymptomatic intracranial stenosis in British patients with transient ischemic attack and minor stroke.
Intracranial artery stenosis (ICAS) is a leading cause of stroke worldwide. It is estimated to account for 10% of ischemic strokes in the US and perhaps up to 50% of strokes in Asia. Despite its frequency and role in stroke-related morbidity and mortality, ICAS has received less attention compared with extracranial atherosclerotic disease. In the past 15 years, clinical trials have refined the treatment approach for patients with recent stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA) and ICAS. However, less information is available pertaining to asymptomatic ICAS.
ConclusionsChildren with CKD have an increased incidence of prior ischemic stroke compared to the general pediatric population. A stroke history was associated with poorer performance on neurocognitive measures.Graphical abstract
AbstractPseudoxanthoma elasticum is a rare cause for ischaemic stroke. Little is known about acute and secondary prevention strategies in these subjects given the increased risk of gastrointestinal and urinary bleedings. Here we present the case of a 62 years old man affected by pseudoxanthoma elasticum who presented with acute ischaemic stroke and was successfully treated with intravenous thrombolysis. Neurological signs improved after intravenous thrombolysis without bleeding complication. To our knowledge, this is the first case of pseudoxanth oma elasticum—related stroke undergoing intravenous thrombolysis.
ConclusionsOur data suggest that a novel CTP-quantitative approach may detect during MA a moderate hypoperfusion pattern in the cerebral regions compatible with aura symptoms. The use of this novel tool could support differential diagnosis between MA and acute stroke.
ConclusionsCSVD and lacunes in the basal ganglia may independently contribute to gait/posture dysfunction in PD. Promoting neurovascular health may preserve some gait/posture function of PD.
