Association of circulating blood HMGB1 levels with ischemic stroke: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

Association of circulating blood HMGB1 levels with ischemic stroke: a systematic review and meta-analysis. Neurol Res. 2018 Jul 17;:1-10 Authors: Le K, Mo S, Lu X, Idriss Ali A, Yu D, Guo Y Abstract OBJECTIVES: Inflammation plays a key role in the pathogenesis and progression of ischemic stroke (IS). The high mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) nucleoprotein is involved in the amplification of inflammatory responses during acute ischemic injury. HMGB1 levels in patients with active disease are higher than those in healthy controls. We performed a meta-analysis to assess currently published data pertaining to circulating blood HMGB1 levels in IS and the relationship with stroke severity. METHODS: We systematically searched for studies investigating the circulating blood HMGB1 levels in patients with IS in PubMed/Medline, Embase, the Cochrane Library, Web of science and China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI). Two independent researchers used the Cochrane Collaboration tools for data extraction and quality assessment. Extracted data were analyzed by Review Manager version 5.3. RESULTS: A total of 28 studies were included with a total of 4497 participants, including 2671 IS patients and 1826 matched controls. The meta-analysis revealed that compared with control, IS patients had higher circulating blood HMGB1 levels (n = 4497, standardized mean difference (SMD) = 5.70, 95%confidence interval (CI) = 4.79 to 6.62, Z =...

In order to assess a potential cardioembolic source an echocardiogram was performed revealing a large mass consistent with a thrombus in transit through a patent foramen ovale. Due to the high risk of systemic embolism emergent surgical thrombectomy was performed,...

TaylorAbstractIntracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) accounts for around 10–20% of all strokes and results from a variety of disorders. ICH is more likely to result in death or major disability than ischaemic stroke or subarachnoid haemorrhage. Rapid imaging allows early diagnosis and characterization of the localization and severity of the haemorrhage. Patients with significant acute ICH should be managed in a critical care unit. Treatment entails general supportive care, control of blood pressure an...

AbstractBackground and purposeMechanical thrombectomy (MT) improves early clinical outcome in patients with acute ischemic stroke but insights on determinants of long-term outcome after MT treatment are scarce.MethodsData from stroke patients with anterior circulation large vessel occlusion of a prospective MT registry (01/2014 –06/2017) of a large comprehensive stroke center were analyzed regarding clinical outcome between short- (3 months) and long-term (12 months) assessment reflected by a change of modified Rankin scores (∆mRS). Secondary endpoints included favorable long-term outcome (mRS 0–2)....
