Sex-Related Differences in Management and Outcome of Acute Ischemic Stroke in Eligible Patients to Thrombolysis
Conclusions: We provided an exhaustive overview and real-life professional practices conditions in thrombolyzed AIS. Despite a later prehospital management in neurovascular units and more severe strokes at admission, women and men had both similar outcomes at hospital discharge and in 3-month survival, but women were associated to worst functional outcome at 3 months.Cerebrovasc Dis

Conclusions: Regardless of the stroke type, divergent results were only found in two domains, "vitality" and "mental health." There was an improvement over time, but the scores obtained were still lower than those observed in the normative group, which indicated that the participants' health was highly compromised. This study provides more information for faster rehabilitation after stroke; even so, more studies are needed. PMID: 31182979 [PubMed - in process]
Immune cells are involved in all stages of acute ischaemic stroke (AIS) and possess both neuroprotective and neurodamaging properties. It has been suggested that immune system activation after stroke may be as...

ConclusionsPatients with epilepsy are at higher risk of subsequent stroke and MI in comparison with subjects without epilepsy. Although individual AEDs may carry different risks of cardio- and cerebrovascular disease, the clinical relevance of the metabolic effects of the enzyme-inducing AEDs is still uncertain.This article is part of the Special Issue “Seizures &Stroke
CONCLUSION: Our data suggest that improvement in cerebral perfusion and CVR depends on flow in the STA-MCA anastomosis in patients with Moyamoya syndrome. Systematic long-term follow-up of anastomosis flow, brain perfusion and CVR improves quantification of the benefit of STA-MCA anastomosis in terms of disease progression.

ConclusionsAlthough baseline characteristics and recanalisation rate after IAT up to 24 h after stroke onset were similar between acute ischaemic stroke patients with active cancer and without any cancer, stroke-related death and short-term outcome were significantly poorer in patients with active cancer than the controls. Post-procedural haemorrhage and active cancer itself were ind ependent predictors of a decrease in functional independence at 3 months.
ConclusionUse of the Revive SE for thrombectomy appeared to be effective and safe but these findings need be confirmed in larger clinical trials (RAPID ClinicalTrials.gov number, NCT03007082).
