Stroke: What is a good amount of salt? This is how much you can eat

STROKE is a dangerous condition which causes some brain cells to die. To avoid it you can make diet changes to remove substances that increase your risk, such as salt which raises blood pressure. However you still need some salt, or sodium, to function normally. You should eat this much salt to help control the condition.

Tomorrow, the FDA is expected to announce the strictest regulation of cigarettes sales in decades. Spurred by the data showing that nearly 8% of high school students are current cigarette smokers, the FDA will announce that from now on, with just a few exceptions, cigarettes may not be sold in any convenience store or gas station. Online sales of cigarettes will still be allowed, but it will be subject to advanced age verification procedures. The only stores that will be allowed to sell cigarettes without restriction will be those which are only open to adults (or which establish an area that is only open to adults).The FD...

Conclusions: Acceptable early and mid-term outcomes were achieved for patients with chronic type A dissection using en bloc technique with LSCA-LCCA transposition during TAR and FET procedure. This technique may be an alternative approach to chronic type A dissection in selected patients. PMID: 30416785 [PubMed]

AbstractAtherosclerotic plaques can remain quiescent for years, but become life threatening upon rupture or disruption, initiating clot formation in the vessel lumen and causing acute myocardial infarction and ischemic stroke. Whether and how a plaque ruptures is determined by its macroscopic structure and microscopic composition. Rupture-prone plaques usually consist of a thin fibrous cap with few smooth muscle cells, a large lipid core, a dense infiltrate of inflammatory cells, and neovessels. Such lesions, termed high-risk plaques, can remain asymptomatic until the thrombotic event. Various imaging technologies currentl...

Abstract: The cerebral cortex is supplied by vascular microlobules, each comprised of a half dozen penetrating arterioles that surround a central draining venule. The surface arterioles that feed the penetrating arterioles are interconnected via an extensively anastomotic plexus. Embolic occlusion of a small surface arteriole rarely produces a local infarct, because collateral blood flow is available through the vascular reticulum. Collateral flow also protects against infarct after occlusion of a single penetrating arteriole. Cortical infarction requires blockage of a major arterial trunk, with arrest of blood flow to a...

Given what we know of the relationship between hypertension and dementia, in which increased blood pressure damages the fragile tissues of the brain, causing loss of function over time, it is reasonable to consider that other disruptions of blood flow could have a similar relationship with the onset of dementia in later life. Researchers here investigate the association between atrial fibrillation and dementia, in search of specific disruptions in blood flow and brain tissue that could explain this relationship in terms of greater structural damage to the brain. Researchers enrolled 246 patients in the study: 198 ...

Conclusion: The causative mechanism seems to be multifactorial, but occurrence may differ depending on the stroke stage. Combined use of subjective and objective assessment methods may increase PSSD detection and early treatment.
