A Narrative Review of Persistent Post-Stroke Headache - A New Entry in the International Classification of Headache Disorders, 3rd Edition.

CONCLUSION: Recognition of persistent post-stroke headache as a separate clinical entity from acute stroke-attributed headache is the first step toward better defining its natural history and most effective treatment strategies. PMID: 30152015 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study is registered on PROSPERO, number CRD42017078611.FindingsOf 8122 records identified, 21 were eligible and data were available for 15 RCTs, all of which had a low to moderate risk of overall bias. Anxiety (five interventions, 728 participants) showed a greater response to intervention among women reporting intimate partner violence than among those who did not (difference in standardised mean differences [dSMD] 0·31, 95% CI 0·04 to 0·57, I2=49·4%). No differences in response to intervention were seen in women reporting intimate partner violence for PTSD (eight interventions, n=1436; dS...

In New Research Poster 5.4, “Variation in Rates of Intentional Ingestion of Substances for Suspected Suicide Attempts and Substance Abuse Based on Age Among Us Adolescents and Adults,” published in the October 2019 Scientific Proceedings supplement issue of the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychi atry, (2019;58:S246), the greater than or equal to symbol (≥) was incorrectly reversed by authors in the original publication to show a less than or equal to symbol (≤). This typographical error did not impact the science as reported and the authors regret this error.

This study investigated whether RIPreC and RIPostC exerted neuroprotection against cerebral ischemic injury in type 2 diabetic mice. RIPreC (24 h before ischemia) and RIPostC (immediately after reperfusion) were performed in an ischemia/reperfusion induced stroke model with type 2 diabetes. Ischemic outcomes, flow cytometry, multiplex cytokine assay, and western blotting were analyzed after 45 min of ischemia followed by 48 h of reperfusion. Our data indicated that RIPreC and RIPostC attenuated cerebral injuries and neurological deficits. RIPreC significantly reduced CD4 T cell and CD8 T cell infiltration and increas...

We report a young woman with a life-threatening basilar artery thrombosis during sexual intercourse, with a resulting locked-in syndrome. The positive high intensity transient signals (HITS) diagnosis showed a right-to-left shunt and is in line with paradoxic embolism. The molecular genetics revealed a homozygosity 4G/4G in the region PAI1, -675 (promoter polymorphism) as a risk factor for ischemic stroke. Sexual intercourse is a possible, albeit unusual stroke cause, especially in young people.

MRI brain confirmed bilateral, asymmetric, occipital vasogenic oedema, suggestive of posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES). Serum testing for MOG antibodies was positive, confirming a diagnosis of MOG antibody-related demyelination (MARD). A similar PRES-like pattern of white matter inflammation h...

We report 5 cases of tumors mimicking CMs. We compared clinical, initial radiologic features, and MRI evolution between 5 tumor mimics and 51 true hemorrhagic, sporadic, brain CM. Compared to true CM, mimic patients were older (47.0 vs. 38.3 years; p = 0.076) and more likely to have a history of primary neoplasm (60% vs 12%; p = 0.0267). Radiologically, the CM mimics demonstrated a higher likelihood of lesion enhancement on the initial diagnostic MRI (60% vs. 16.7%%; p = 0.0609). On follow-up MRI (

Authors: Rodríguez-Rodríguez V, Pérez-Garín D, Recio-Saboya P, Rico-Gómez A Abstract During the economic crisis, developed countries have experienced financial fraud, with effects on the physical and mental health of the people affected, and on social domains. Based on the theoretical framework in literature reviews and in quantitative studies, this paper aims to obtain evidence on the effects of financial fraud on health and on the family and social environments of those affected. An intentional sample of 32 people affected by abusive and multi-currency mortgages, preferred and s...
