KáradóttirAbstractBrain tissue undergoes substantial activity-dependent reorganisation after stroke due to neuronal plasticity, leading to partial functional recovery in patients. Concurrent myelin repair is crucial for proper neuronal network function and reorganisation. Myelin repair after stroke might occur as myelin plasticity or as remyelination through the recruitment and differentiation of oligodendrocyte precursor cells (OPCs), which become myelin-forming oli...

Rupture of lysosome is a major cellular stress condition leading to cell death in PD. We have previously shown that environmental oxidative toxins could impair autophagic flux and lysosomal functions in PD. Poloxamer 188 (P188) is an amphipathic polymer which has cytoprotecti...

The objective of this retrospective study was to investigate which cases are more likely to experience vasospasm after thrombectomy with stent retrievers.MethodsWe included 29 patients diagnosed with acute cardiogenic cerebral embolism who were treated with stent retrievers at our facility from December 2014 to December 2017. Atherothrombotic brain infarction cases were excluded because it was difficult to evaluate for vasospasms. Vasospasm was defined as reversible arterial narrowing of

JadhavAbstractParallel to a more widespread application of endovascular neurothrombectomy in acute ischemic stroke, it is critical to understand the nature and management of associated complications, including wire perforation of the middle cerebral artery (MCA). Sacrifice of the perforated vessel may be necessary to avoid fatal intra-cranial hemorrhage. Here we describe a case of right MCA distribution ischemia complicated by a right MCA perforation. Using super selective inje...

Abstract Cardiovascular disease (CVD) represents the first cause of death globally. The nighttime is generally a period of relative protection from CVD events such as myocardial infarction, sudden cardiac death, and stroke, at least compared to the early morning period. The nighttime also generally entails lower values of arterial blood pressure (ABP) and heart rate (HR) and higher cardiac parasympathetic modulation. These day-night cardiovascular rhythms are ultimately driven by circadian molecular oscillators in the hypothalamic suprachiasmatic nucleus and in peripheral cells, including those in the heart, blood...

"Encephalopathy Only Stroke Codes" (EoSC) Rarely Result in Stroke as Final Diagnosis. Neurol Res Int. 2019;2019:2105670 Authors: Chen PM, Meyer DM, Claycomb R, Agrawal K, Meyer BC Abstract Stroke codes prompted by isolated encephalopathy often result in nonstroke final diagnoses but require intensive stroke center resources. We assessed the likelihood of "Encephalopathy only Stroke Codes (EoSC)" resulting in a true stroke (EoSC CVA+) final diagnosis. 3860 patients were analyzed in a prospective stroke code registry from 2004 to 2016. EoSC was defined using a standard and an explorat...

Purpose: The main purpose of this study was to determine whether there were temporal differences in the rates of first stroke hospitalizations and 30-day mortality after stroke between black and white Medicare enrollees. Methods: We used a 20% sample of Medicare beneficiaries aged 65 years or older and described the annual rate of first hospitalization for ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes from years 1988 to 2013, as well as 30-day mortality after stroke hospitalization. We used linear tests of trend to determine whether stroke rates changed over time, and tested the interaction term between race and year to determine ...

Conclusions Because slower myosin heavy chain fiber types are associated with weaker contractile force and slower contractile speed, this faster to slower fiber type shift in tibialis anterior muscles may contribute to weaker and slower muscle contraction in this muscle after stroke. This finding may indicate potential therapeutic benefit from treatments known to influence fiber type plasticity.
