Noninfectious complications of acute stroke and their impact on hospital mortality in patients admitted to a stroke unit in Warsaw from 1995 to 2015

Conclusions Over the last two decades Polish urban stroke units may have achieved a significant reduction of the occurrence of some noninfectious complications (i.e. MI, exacerbated CHF and DVT). However, the list of conditions associated with stroke unit mortality includes not only MI and exacerbated CHF but also PE, gastrointestinal bleeding and recurrent stroke.

Participants were 156 families with children aged 4–7 years (M = 5.64 years, SD = 0.62; 59 % boys); research group: 75 two-parent families having children with mild intellectual disability (MID); control group: 81 two-parent families with typically developed ...

The aim of this study was to assess comprehension and satisfaction of patients about preoperative information of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) surgery. Factors influencing patient understanding were also studied. PATIENTS AND METHODS: It was a monocentric study on questionnaires including every patients planned for BPH surgery, whatever the surgica...

More than 20 years have passed since the discovery of Parkin; since that time, another familial PD protein has been identified: PINK1, which acts upstream of Parkin. PINK1 is a protein kinase that monitors mitochondrial integrity by sensing disability status, whereas Parkin is a ubiquitin–protein ligase that attaches ubiquitin chains to malfuncti...

This study investigated whether RIPreC and RIPostC exerted neuroprotection against cerebral ischemic injury in type 2 diabetic mice. RIPreC (24 h before ischemia) and RIPostC (immediately after reperfusion) were performed in an ischemia/reperfusion induced stroke model with type 2 diabetes. Ischemic outcomes, flow cytometry, multiplex cytokine assay, and western blotting were analyzed after 45 min of ischemia followed by 48 h of reperfusion. Our data indicated that RIPreC and RIPostC attenuated cerebral injuries and neurological deficits. RIPreC significantly reduced CD4 T cell and CD8 T cell infiltration and increas...

We report a young woman with a life-threatening basilar artery thrombosis during sexual intercourse, with a resulting locked-in syndrome. The positive high intensity transient signals (HITS) diagnosis showed a right-to-left shunt and is in line with paradoxic embolism. The molecular genetics revealed a homozygosity 4G/4G in the region PAI1, -675 (promoter polymorphism) as a risk factor for ischemic stroke. Sexual intercourse is a possible, albeit unusual stroke cause, especially in young people.

We report 5 cases of tumors mimicking CMs. We compared clinical, initial radiologic features, and MRI evolution between 5 tumor mimics and 51 true hemorrhagic, sporadic, brain CM. Compared to true CM, mimic patients were older (47.0 vs. 38.3 years; p = 0.076) and more likely to have a history of primary neoplasm (60% vs 12%; p = 0.0267). Radiologically, the CM mimics demonstrated a higher likelihood of lesion enhancement on the initial diagnostic MRI (60% vs. 16.7%%; p = 0.0609). On follow-up MRI (

Adults who experience pain are more likely to use cannabis without a prescription and have cannabis use disorder than those without pain, according to astudy published yesterday inAJP in Advance.“These results suggest that, among adults with pain, frequent nonmedical cannabis use and cannabis use disorder are growing problems,” wrote Deborah S. Hasin, Ph.D., of the New York State Psychiatric Institute and colleagues. “[T]he need remains for other interventions to manage pain that do n ot incur risk of another substance use disorder (i.e., cannabis use disorder) as an adverse treatment outcome.”Hasin...
