Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) has been recommended for diagnosing diabetes mellitus (DM). We aimed to assess the prevalence of newly diagnosed diabetes mellitus (NDDM) in patients with intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) using HbA1c criteria and to investigate the long-term prognosis of patients with ICH with NDDM.

Hanley, Scott J. Russo, Ricardo E. Jorge, Jian Wang Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is a detrimental type of stroke. Mouse models of ICH, induced by collagenase or blood infusion, commonly target striatum, but not other brain sites such as ventricular system, cortex, and hippocampus. Few studies have systemically investigated brain damage and neurobehavioral deficits that develop in animal models of ICH in the...
We have read with great interest the study published in The American Journal of Medicine by Juan et al.1 The authors presented a patient with symptoms of left hemiparesis and left facial palsy for whom computed tomography of the brain showed a single hemorrhagic lesion in the right basal ganglia. They also reported that the patient had a medical history of adenocarcinoma of the lung and hyperten sion. They presented a diagnostic dilemma, with hemorrhagic stroke or hemorrhagic brain metastasis as the cause of the hemorrhagic lesion.

CONCLUSIONS These results suggest that ANGPTL4 is a relevant target for vasculoprotection and cerebral protection during stroke. PMID: 29432410 [PubMed - in process]
AbstractPurpose of ReviewThromboelastography (TEG) has been gaining attention for its potential use in a variety of disease of states to guide therapies and determine prognosis. This review will explore recent research specifically regarding the use of thromboelastography in the emergency, trauma, and critical care clinical environments.Recent FindingsThromboelastography has its drawbacks. TEG has wide operator and machine variability. Known coagulopathic states may exhibit normal viscoelastic results, indicating inconsistent results. Thromboelastography has shown to decrease transfusion of blood products in traumatic hemo...
ConclusionsAGT is under-diagnosed on current guidelines. 2h-PG is a better predictor of prognosis compared to APG and FPG.
