Movement disorders are a heterogeneous group of conditions that affect a large percentage of the pediatric population. Some movement disorders, like stereotypies and tics, are extremely common, whereas others are vanishingly rare with only a few cases reported in the literature. Movement disorders can arise secondary to other conditions such as stroke or autoimmune diseases or be the primary presenting symptom as in the case of tic disorders; they may be acquired or genetic in origin.1,2 Pediatric movement disorders can cause significant functional and psychological impairment to both the child and caregivers.

AbstractBackground and purposeClinical outcome after endovascular thrombectomy in patients with acute ischemic stroke still varies significantly. Higher blood glucose levels (BGL) have been associated with worse clinical outcome, but the pathophysiological causes are not yet understood. We hypothesized that higher levels of BGL are associated with more pronounced ischemic brain edema and worse clinical outcome mediated by cerebral collateral circulation.Methods178 acute ischemic stroke patients who underwent mechanical thrombectomy were included. Early ischemic brain edema was determined using quantitative lesion water upt...

Authors: Paknahad Z, Moosavian SP, Jervekani ZT, Hasanzadeh A, Hashemi M Abstract Aim: Coronary artery disease (CAD) is a major cause of mortality worldwide. Many studies suggest that dietary antioxidant can offer significant protection against stroke, heart failure, and coronary heart disease. However, there is no study that assessed the association between dietary TAC and severity of stenosis in patients with CVD. The aim of this study was to investigate the association of dietary TAC and severity of stenosis in patients with coronary artery disease. Methods: Dietary and medical History of 160 patients with CAD ...

Authors: Wali Y, Kini V, Yassin MA Abstract Background/Objective: Stroke is a potentially fatal complication of sickle cell disease (SCD). Transcranial Doppler (TCD) is useful at identifying increased risk of stroke in children with SCD and vasospasm after subarachnoid hemorrhage. The main aim of this study was to determine the proportion of patients with SCD in the Gulf region who are at a high risk of stroke, as determined by TCD.Methods: This multicenter (Oman, Qatar, and UAE), descriptive, cross-sectional study in patients (aged 2-16 years) with SCD included a baseline visit, 1 follow-up visit for patients with...

AbstractWe investigated the relationship between time trends in nutrient intake and coronary risk factors/mortality rates in Tanushimaru, a Japanese cohort of the Seven Countries Study. All men between the ages of 40 and 64 were enrolled. Subjects numbered 628 in 1958, 539 in 1977, 602 in 1982, 752 in 1989, 402 in 1999, 329 in 2009, and 160 in 2018. Eating patterns were evaluated by 24-h dietary recall from 1958 through 1989, and by a food frequency questionnaire administered from 1999 through 2018. The total daily energy intake decreased from 2,837  kcal in 1958 to 2,096 kcal in 2018. Carbohydrate intake as a pe...
