Predictors of mortality and recurrent stroke within five years of intracerebral hemorrhage.

Conclusion Predictors of recurrent stroke were older females, hypertension, diabetes, and brain stem hemorrhage. These findings may help to determine specific treatment strategies and improve quality of health care for such patients. PMID: 30134784 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusions: Moyamoya accounts for a substantial number of stroke admissions in Kentucky; these patients were more likely to develop an ischemic stroke rather than a hemorrhagic stroke. Autoimmune disorders were more prevalent in moyamoya patients than in the general population. The reduced frequency of traditional stroke risk factors within the Appalachian group suggests an etiology distinct to the population.Cerebrovasc Dis

The most feared hemorrhagic complication of anticoagulating patients with atrial fibrillation is intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). However, not anticoagulating high-risk patients with atrial fibrillation can lead to cardioembolic stroke, another disastrous outcome. Physicians may tend to avoid blame by inaction, which can result in underprescribing. Such clinical inertia is not unique to anticoagulating patients with atrial fibrillation. Clinical inertia has been noted in the treatment of several common chronic conditions, such as treating blood pressure in patients with hypertension and treating hyperglycemia in patients wi...

CONCLUSIONS: This systematic review provides moderate-quality evidence showing that ET, compared with CMT, in people with recent symptomatic severe intracranial atherosclerotic stenosis probably does not prevent recurrent stroke and appears to carry an increased hazard. The impact of delayed ET intervention (more than three weeks after a qualifying event) is unclear and may warrant further study. PMID: 32789891 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Wilson RD Abstract This review sought to use high-level published data sources for system knowledge translation, collaborative enhanced maternal education and understanding, and prospective maternal quality and safety care planning. The goal was to answer the following question: What are the short- and long-term maternal risks ("near misses," adverse events, severe morbidity and mortality) associated with pregnancy and childbirth? A structured analysis of the literature (systematic review, meta-analysis, observational case-control cohort), focusing on publications between 2016 and April 2019, was...

oi Hong This cross-sectional study aimed to evaluate the association between periodontitis and cardiovascular disease (CVD) by reviewing and discussing the role of the oral microbiome in periodontitis and CVD. This prospective cohort study used epidemiological data from the Korean Genome and Epidemiology Study from 2004 to 2016. We selected 9973 patients with periodontitis and 125,304 controls (non-periodontitis) from 173,209 participants and analyzed their medical histories to determine the relationship between cerebral stroke/ischemic heart disease and periodontitis. The participants were questioned about any prev...

Ravindra K GargNeurology India 2020 68(3):560-572 COVID-19, in most patients, presents with mild flu-like illness. Elderly patients with comorbidities, like hypertension, diabetes, or lung and cardiac disease, are more likely to have severe disease and deaths. Neurological complications are frequently reported in severely or critically ill patients with comorbidities. In COVID-19, both central and peripheral nervous systems can be affected. The SARS-CoV-2 virus causes the disease COVID-19 and has the potential to invade the brain. The SARS-CoV-2 virus enters the brain either via a hematogenous route or olfactory system. A...

Abstract The novel severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 is the causative agent of coronavirus disease 2019, a new human infectious disease. While fever, cough, and respiratory distress are typical first symptoms, a fraction of those affected present instead with neurological symptoms suggestive of central nervous system compromise. This review summarizes the potential contribution of coronavirus disease 2019 to hemorrhagic stroke in the elderly and proposes possible mechanisms. Reports show that the most affected patients have underlying chronic diseases such as hypertension and diabetes, which are two ...

Atrial fibrillation is the most common sustained cardiac arrhythmia in the general population. In western countries with aging populations, atrial fibrillation poses a significant health concern, as it is associated with a high risk of thromboembolism, stroke, congestive heart failure, and myocardial infarction. Thrombi are generated in the left atrial appendage, and subsequent embolism into the cerebral circulation is a major cause of ischemic stroke. Therefore, patients have a lifetime risk of stroke, and those at high risk, defined as a CHA2DS2-VASc2 (congestive heart failure, hypertension, age>75 years, diabetes mel...

AbstractDiabetes is a well ‐established risk factor for both ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke. Individuals with diabetes not only have a higher risk of stroke, they also have worse clinical outcomes after stroke, including poorer neurological recovery, higher rates of stroke recurrence and mortality. In addition to optimizin g glycemia, control of cardiovascular risk factors like hypertension and dyslipidemia is crucial in stroke prevention in subjects with diabetes.
