Clinical usefulness of brain-derived neurotrophic factor and visinin-like protein-1 in early diagnostic tests for acute stroke

Lack of a rapid biochemical test for acute stroke is a limitation in the diagnosis and management of acute stroke. The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of BDNF and VILIP-1 as diagnostic markers in acute ischemic stroke and as predictors of mortality.

We present four cases of coronavirus disease 2019 ischemic strokes occurring in patients aged 37–68 yrs with varying coronavirus disease 2019 infection severities, premorbid risk factors, clinical presentations (eg, focal and nonfocal), and vascular distributions. These cases highlight the heterogeneity of coronavirus disease 2019 ischemic strokes. The duration of the coronavirus disease 2019–related prothrombotic state is unknown, and it is unclear whether patients are at risk for recurrent strokes. With more coronavirus disease 2019 patients recovering and being discharged to rehabilitation, physiatric awaren...

Conclusions: This cohort study demonstrates that apo B and the apo B/apo A-I ratio were a significant risk predictor of stroke. Furthermore, the predictive ability of apo B and the apo B/apo A-I ratio in stroke risk was better than routine clinical lipid measurements. Thus, measurements of apolipoproteins have superior clinical utility over traditional lipid measurements in identifying subjects at risk for ischemic stroke.Cerebrovasc Dis

Conclusion: The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of repetitive magnetic stimulation of M1 region combined with magnetic stimulation of Neiguan and Sanyinjiao points on limb function after stroke. Through this study, we expect to explore a new scheme for the treatment of poststroke dyskinesia, and prove that compared with rTMS and acupuncture alone, the closed-loop rehabilitation theory based on “center peripheral center” can be more efficient and safe in the treatment of poststroke limb dysfunction. Trial Registration: The trial was registered in China clinical trial registry (http://www.c...

Although obesity is an established risk factor of primary stroke, the association between obesity and post-stroke mortality remains unclear. The aim of this study was to investigate the association between dynamic obesity status and mortality in survivors of their first stroke in China. Of 775 patients with first-ever ischemic stroke included in a longitudinal study, 754 patients were included in this study and categorized into 4 categories of body mass index (BMI) (underweight, normal weight, overweight, and obese) and 2 categories of waist circumference (WC) (normal WC and abdominal obesity) according to standard Chines...

We report a case of ischemic stroke in the area of a DVA after minor head trauma in a patient with DVA and without a predisposition thrombosis. Patient concerns: A healthy 17-year-old male was admitted to the emergency room due to left hemiparesis, which was caused by a ball hitting the right side of his head during a soccer game. Diagnosis: Brain magnetic resonance (MR) susceptibility-weighted image showed several small veins draining to the central vein in the area from the right posterior putamen to the periventricular white matter. Interventions: We diagnosed the patient with an ischemic stroke associated with...
