Angong Niuhuang Pill as adjuvant therapy for treating acute cerebral infarction and intracerebral hemorrhage: A meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials

ConclusionsAdjuvant treatment with ANP appears to improve the total response rate and neurologic deficit score in patients with ACI and AIH. More well-designed trials are required due to the suboptimal methodological quality of the included trials.Graphical abstract

Conclusions: Anemia on admission was associated with higher mortality and an increased risk of poor outcome in patients with ICH. However, the results were limited by the high heterogeneity of included studies. Prospective, multi-center or population-based, large sample cohort studies are needed in the future. Introduction Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is the second most common cause of stroke and a highly lethal disease (1), which still lacks effective therapeutic interventions (2, 3). Although age, baseline ICH volume and neurological status on admission are well-known predictors of outcome of ICH (4), none of t...

Intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) is one of the most devastating forms of stroke with a reported mortality rate of up to 50% in the literature. [1] One complication is the development of seizures that occurs in 2%-40% of patients post-ICH. The significant variation in incidence is related to the type and duration of monitoring, length of follow-up, and patient characteristics including hemorrhage volume, hemorrhage location, and cortical involvement [2 –12].

Objective: Age-related cerebral white matter abnormalities, commonly termed leukoaraiosis (LA), are frequent manifestation of cerebral microvascular disease. Aging and hypertension are well linked to LA. We compared additional vascular risk factors and socioeconomic factors with LA severity in acute stroke patients. Methods: We analyzed 271 patients with acute ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke from a hospital registry. We collected clinical and socioeconomic data prospectively with a standardized questionnaire during acute stroke hospitalization.

Background: Pupillary dysfunction is recognized as a sign of acute neurological deterioration due to worsening mass effect in patients with hemispheric strokes. Recent neuroimaging studies suggest that horizontal displacement of brain structures may be more important than vertical displacement in explaining these pupillary findings. Pupillometers allow objective and standardized evaluation of the pupillary light reflex. We hypothesized that pupillary data (Neurological Pupil index [NPi] and constriction velocity [CV]) obtained with a hand-held pupilometer, correlate with horizontal intracranial midline shift in patients wi...

Conclusions: Acupuncture could improve the lower limb spasticity and motor function, thus providing a safe and economical approach for treating stroke patients. The potential mechanism underpinning the greater improvement may be attributed to a reshape of corticospinal plasticity induced by acupuncture.Eur Neurol 2019;81:5 –12

Specific features of neurological deficit and changes in the cellular composition of tracheal lymphoid structures during the immediate stage (day 1) of hemorrhagic stroke were studied in rats with various behavioral parameters. Modeling of hemorrhage in the left caudate nucleus of the brain was followed by the development of motor disturbances in the forelimb use asymmetry test and corner rotation paradigm. These animals preferred to use the left forelimb (ipsilateral to the side of hemorrhage) to lean on the cylinder wall. The frequency of using the right forelimb or both forelimbs was reduced under these conditions. The ...

Conclusion: We identified a novel non-sense mutation in MTHFR gene in a single Egyptian family with severe MTHFR deficiency. The present investigation is clinically important, as it adds to the growing list of MTHFR mutations, which might help in genetic counseling of families of affected children and proper genotype-phenotype correlation. Background Severe 5,10-Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR; OMIM 236250) deficiency is a rare inborn error of metabolism and inherited in an autosomal recessive fashion. It is a very common disorder of folate metabolism and is clinically characterized with low plasma methion...
