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.

Publication date: Available online 17 April 2019Source: Pharmacological ResearchAuthor(s): Ulvi BayraktutanABSTRACTStroke is classified into two main groups depending on its aetiology; ischaemic stroke and haemorrhagic stroke which successively develop from the occlusion or rupture of an artery leading to the brain. Despite being the leading cause of human cerebral damage, there is currently no medical therapy for haemorrhagic stroke and thrombolysis with recombinant tissue plasminogen activator remains the only approved pharmacotherapy for ischaemic stroke. However, due to its short therapeutic window (first 4.5 h ...

ConclusionsIn patients with ACS, ticagrelor is more efficacious in protecting against new ischemic events and mortality than clopidogrel, irrespective of the presence of HF. There is no difference between ticagrelor or clopidogrel treatment in new-onset HF post-ACS.

Abstract For recanalization of emergent large vessel occlusions (ELVOs), endovascular therapy (EVT) using newer devices, such as a stent retriever and large-bore catheter, has shown better patient outcomes compared with intravenous recombinant tissue plasminogen activator only. Intracranial atherosclerotic stenosis (ICAS) is a major cause of acute ischemic stroke, the incidence of which is rising worldwide. Thus, it is not rare to encounter underlying ICAS during EVT procedures, particularly in Asian countries. ELVO due to underlying ICAS is often related to EVT procedure failure or complications, which can lead t...

Authors: Zhang L, Li S, Chen L, Li J, Zhang Z, Yang Y, Wang X, Liu J Abstract BACKGROUND: Cerebellar fastigial nucleus electrical stimulation (FNS) in rats has been shown to protect against brain ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) damage. Activation of telomerase has been reported to provide neuroprotection in animal models of stroke. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to explore whether precondition FNS increases the expression of telomerase reverse transcriptase (TERT) and telomerase activity in rats after cerebral I/R injury. METHODS: One day after continuous stimulation of the fastigial cerebellar nucleus for...
