Authors: Tortuyaux R, Ferrigno M, Dequatre-Ponchelle N, Djelad S, Cordonnier C, Hénon H, Leys D Abstract BACKGROUND: Stroke of unknown time of onset (UTOS) accounts for one-third of contra-indications for revascularization procedures. With modern neuroimaging techniques it is possible to differentiate the core infarcts and the presence of penumbra. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate outcomes in patients with UTOS, treated with intravenous (i.v.) recombinant tissue-plasminogen activator (rt-PA), mechanical thrombectomy (MT), or both. METHOD: We conducted this observational study in patients treated by i.v. rt-PA,...

In this study, AT1-AAs were detected in the sera of patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and the positive rate was 44.44% vs. 17.46% in non-PAD volunteers. In addition, analysis showed that AT1-AAs level was positively correlated with PAD. To reveal the causal relationship between AT1-AAs and vascular aging, an AT1-AAs-positive rat model was established by active immunization. The carotid pulse wave velocity was higher, and the aortic endothelium-dependent vasodilatation was attenuated significantly in the immunized rats. Morphological staining showed thickening of the aortic wall. Histological examination showe...

Putting in more time at work might benefit your career but could leave you at greater risk of a stroke. A study published in the American Heart Association’s journal Stroke determined long working hours — classified as more than 10 hours daily at least 50 days out of the year — for a decade or more had a stronger link to stroke. No differences were noted between women and men, but white col lar workers under 50 saw a strong association to stroke. The Washington Post reports employees working…

This study assessed patient preference for warfarin or DOAC based on a willingness to pay more for potential DOAC benefits. Current warfarin patients with atrial fibrillation or venous thromboembolism enrolled in the University of Utah Health Thrombosis Service were given a one-time electronic survey that assessed preferences between warfarin and DOACs using scenarios comparing effectiveness, safety, and convenience. When DOACs were preferred, patients were asked how much more they would be willing to pay monthly for the perceived advantages associated with DOACs. With 123 completed surveys, 68% of patients preferred to st...

AbstractEfficacy and safety of intravenous thrombolysis (IVT) in acute ischemic stroke (AIS) due to intracranial artery dissection (IAD) are currently not established. We aimed to present a single-center experience on IAD-related AIS treated by IVT. We selected all consecutive patients with IAD-related AIS treated by IVT from a prospectively constructed single-center acute stroke registry from 2003 to 2017. We reviewed demographical, clinical and neuroimaging data and recorded hemorrhagic complications, mortality within 7  days and modified Rankin Scale at 3-months. Out of 181 AISs related to cervicocephalic dissectio...

AbstractWe included acute ischemic stroke (AIS) patients who received recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rt-PA) at three stroke centers via either interhospital transfer or direct presentation and compared the clinical outcomes and time metrics to analyze the impact of interhospital transfer on intravenous thrombolysis (IVT). We retrospectively enrolled patients with AIS admitted to three stroke centers from October 1, 2016, to June 1, 2018. Patients treated with rt-PA were classified into the transfer and direct groups. We collected the patients ’ general information and time points. Statistical analyses were...
