Viz.Ai has just received Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance to market its artificial intelligence application that can alert a neurovascular specialist if their patient is possibly suffering a stroke. When the app detects large vessel blockage, it sends the physician a text message who can then review the patient ’s brain images at their computer station. This alert system can expedite treatment procedures and potentially delay the stroke’s progression. More young adults are being hospitalized for strokes. Although there has been an increase in stroke survival rates,as of 2013, stroke is the fifth lea...

CONCLUSIONS: Addition of carotid ultrasonography measures to conventional risk factors significantly improved the stratification of patients by cardiovascular risk. Changes over time in carotid ultrasonography measures may be used as therapeutic outcome measures. PMID: 29445076 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Boggs JM, Beck A, Hubley S, Peterson EL, Hu Y, Williams LK, Prabhakar D, Rossom RC, Lynch FL, Lu CY, Waitzfelder BE, Owen-Smith AA, Simon GE, Ahmedani BK Abstract OBJECTIVE: Mitigation of suicide risk by reducing access to lethal means, such as firearms and potentially lethal medications, is a highly recommended practice. To better understand groups of patients at risk of suicide in medical settings, the authors compared demographic and clinical risk factors between patients who died by suicide by using firearms or other means with matched patients who did not die by suicide (control group). METHODS: I...

(Georgetown University Medical Center) A stroke in a baby -- even a big one -- does not have the same lasting impact as a stroke in an adult. A study led by Georgetown University Medical Center investigators found that a decade or two after a 'perinatal' stroke damaged the left 'language' side of the brain, affected teenagers and young adults used the right sides of their brain for language.

Authors: Deppermann C Abstract Platelets patrol the vasculature and adhere at sites of vascular damage after trauma to limit blood loss. In recent years, however, it has become clear that platelets also contribute to pathophysiologic processes such as thrombosis, atherosclerosis, stroke, sepsis and many more. An exciting new role for them is in non-classical hemostasis to prevent bleeding in the inflamed vasculature. Recent studies suggest that GPVI, CLEC-2, integrin αIIbβ3 (GPIIb/IIIa), and the content of platelet α- and dense granules are important players in this process. This review summarizes ...

In this study, we aimed to evaluate the neuroprotective effects of Iso in primary culture of rat hippocampal neurons exposed to oxygen and glucose deprivation and reperfusion (OGD/R) injury and in rats subjected to middle cerebral artery occlusion and reperfusion (MCAO/R) injury. We found that rats treated with Iso exhibited a lower degree of infarct volume, and brain water content than the vehicle-treated rats. Treatment with Iso also improved the neurological deficits in MCAO/R rats as shown by the decreased modified neurological severity score. Iso treatment decreased the reactive oxygen species (ROS) and malondialdehyd...

AbstractAtrial fibrillation is commonly coexistent with heart failure, and the management of the heart failure patient would be incomplete without an appreciation for atrial fibrillation management. There are many complications associated with oral anticoagulation in the prevention of stroke related to atrial fibrillation. In recent years, the advent of several percutaneous left atrial appendage (LAA) occlusion/closure strategies has sought to provide an alternative treatment modality. Here, we systematically review the published literature to investigate the efficacy and safety of percutaneous LAA occlusion/closure device...

This study compared the development and resolution of matched photothrombotic microvascular infarcts in the cerebellar and cerebral cortices in adult 129/SvEv mice of both sexes. The photothrombotic lesions were made using tail vein injection of Rose Bengal with a 532  nm laser projected onto a 2 mm diameter aperture over the target region of the brain (with skull thinning). Infarct size was then imaged histologically following 2 h to 30-day survival using serial reconstruction of haematoxylin and eosin stained cryosections. This was complemented with immunohi stochemistry for neuron and glial markers. At 2&...
