Authors: Esenwa C, Lekoubou A, Bishu KG, Small K, Liberman A, Ovbiagele B Abstract Background: Compared with non-Hispanic Whites (NHW), racial-ethnic minorities bear a disproportionate burden of stroke and receive fewer evidence-based stroke care processes and treatments. Since 2015, mechanical thrombectomy (MT) has become standard of care for acute ischemic stroke (AIS) patients with proximal anterior circulation large vessel occlusion (LVO). Objectives: Our objectives were to: assess recent trends in nationwide MT utilization among patients with AIS; determine if there were racial differences; and identify wh...

ConclusionsThis study indicated that exercise combined with low-level inhibition of GABAA receptors after stroke could facilitate the recovery of motor function accompanied by BDNF upregulation in the ipsilateral M1. Therefore, this study provides a novel insight of pharmacological neuromodulation into stroke rehabilitation.

Publication date: Available online 23 January 2020Source: Journal of Clinical NeuroscienceAuthor(s): Ryosuke Maeoka, Ichiro Nakagawa, Hiroyuki Ohnishi, Yoshihiro Kuga, Hiroyuki Nakase, Hideyuki OhnishiAbstractAcute basilar artery occlusion (BAO) is associated with major morbidities and a high mortality rate. The prevalence of acute BAO is 10.4% among patients treated with thrombectomy for acute large vessel occlusion. Vertebral artery stump syndrome (VASS) reportedly causes ischemic stroke with tandem occlusions as vertebral artery (VA) origin occlusion and BAO. The pathogenesis of ischemic stroke due to VASS can be attrib...

Publication date: Available online 23 January 2020Source: Multiple Sclerosis and Related DisordersAuthor(s): Arturo de Falco, Marta De Simone, Florindo d'Onofrio, Daniele Spitaleri, Fabrizio Antonio de FalcoAbstractMultiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disease characterized by inflammation, demyelination and neurodegeneration in the central nervous system. Recent studies suggested that patients with MS might have a greater risk of ischaemic stroke (IS). IS treatment with intravenous alteplase (IVA) in MS has rarely been reported. This could be due to the challenging diagnosis between acute IS and MS relapse, considering tha...

ConclusionsThis study is the largest European real-world study ever published on NOACs. It includes all Italian patients treated with NOACs since 2013 accounting for about 1/3 of subjects with AF. The enrolled population consisted of very elderly patients, at high risk of ischemic adverse events. The AIFA registries are consolidated tools that guarantee the appropriateness of prescription and provide important information for the governance of National Health System by collecting real-world data.

CONCLUSION: In real-world patients at high risk of bleeding, implantation of the polymer-free metallic stent coated with Biolimus-A9 (Biofreedom®; Biosensors Europe, Morges, Switzerland) followed by 1 -month DAPT showed encouraging results without any stent thrombosis.

Stroke ranks the second leading cause of death among people over the age of 60 in the world. Stroke is widely regarded as a complex disease that is affected by genetic and environmental factors. Evidence from twin and family studies suggests that genetic factors may play an important role in its pathogenesis. Therefore, research on the genetic association of susceptibility genes can help understand the mechanism of stroke. Genome-wide association study (GWAS) has found a large number of stroke-related loci, but their mechanism is unknown. In order to explore the function of single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) at the mol...

In conclusion, our study provides evidence that dl-NBP treatment could also promote functional recovery after focal transient ischemia stroke, and this recovery is associated with upregulated white matter integrity, microvessels, and the tight junction protein occludin. Our results suggested that, in future, dl-NBP may also be applied in clinic to promote functional recovery during the later phase of focal transient ischemic stroke.
