Johnson &Johnson‘s (NYSE:JNJ) Cerenovus said today that it launched a new registry aiming to collect and analyze stroke-inducing blood clots removed with the company’s Embotrap II revascularization device. The Irvine, Calif.-based company touted the Excellent registry as the single largest global registry of its kind to date, looking to enroll up to 1,000 ischemic stroke patients across 50 locations in the U.S. and Europe. Investigators in the trial will collect and analyze clots removed to explore how different characteristics, including size, composition and density may affect outcomes, the comp...

Background and Purpose: Elevated serum aldosterone concentration is known to be linked with elevated risk of cerebrovascular events as a result of vascular senescence. We studied the association between serum aldosterone concentration and cerebral arteriosclerosis status involving cerebral atherosclerosis burden and cerebral vascular calcification. Methods: A total of 207 patients (mean age  = 62.40 ± 10.54, 70 female patients) admitted with acute ischemic stroke from a single center-based stroke registry were included in the study.

AbstractThe aim of the current study was to reveal the clinical characteristics of Japanese diabetic patients with critical limb ischemia (CLI) presenting ischemic unhealed ulcer/gangrene (Fontaine stage IV) in the real-world settings. The current retrospective cross-sectional study included consecutive 282 Japanese diabetic patients who underwent endovascular therapy for CLI presenting Fontaine stage IV. The prevalence of diabetes-related complications was estimated adopting multiple imputation (50 times). The patients were aged 70  ± 10 years. Median duration of diabetes was 21 (interquartile ra...

AbstractWe hypothesize that enhancing mitochondrial base excision repair (BER) capability in brain will reduce reperfusion-associated ischemic brain injury. Post-stroke reperfusion was modeled in mice via transient filament occlusion of the middle cerebral artery (60  min) (transient MCAO). Administration of a TAT-modified form of a DNA glycosylase (EndoIII) following reperfusion of the brain reduced resultant brain infarct volume. Protection was dose-dependent, BER enzyme specific, and regionally specific (more effective via the jugular vein). EndoIII is compa tible with tissue plasminogen activator (tPA). The time w...

ConclusionsIf the outcomes of the trials underpinning the evidence of clinical effectiveness can be replicated, then mechanical thrombectomy is likely to be cost-effective by typical willingness-to-pay thresholds. This finding holds under the assumption that no investment is required to develop stroke centres to the standard required to provide a safe emergency endovascular service and that additional expenditure on timely patient transport is not required.

Authors: Kreuziger LB, Massicotte MP Abstract Mechanical circulatory support (MCS) is the overarching term that encompasses the temporary and durable devices used in patients with severe heart failure. MCS disturbs the hematologic and coagulation system, leading to platelet activation, activation of the contact pathway of coagulation, and acquired von Willebrand syndrome. Ischemic stroke and major hemorrhage occur in up to 30% of patients. Hematologists are an essential part of the MCS team because they understand the delicate balance between bleeding and clotting and alteration of hemostasis with antithrombotic th...

Authors: Hamed SA Abstract INTRODUCTION: Uremic syndrome of chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a term used to describe clinical, metabolic and hormonal abnormalities associated with progressive kidney failure. It is a rapidly growing public health problem worldwide. Nervous system complications occur in every patient with uremic syndrome of CKD. Areas covered: This review summarized central and peripheral nervous system complications of uremic syndrome of CKD and their pathogenic mechanisms. They include cognitive deterioration, encephalopathy, seizures, asterixis, myoclonus, restless leg syndrome, central pontine mye...
