PandeyAbstractMechanical thrombectomy is now at the forefront of the treatment of large vessel acute ischemic stroke (AIS). Selective intra-arterial (IA) access has opened a new avenue for neuroprotection in AIS that has the potential to maximize local benefit while minimizing systemic effects. On a cellular level, neuroprotective strategies are aimed at reducing inflammation and free-radical formation, maintaining blood-brain barrier fidelity...
Less than 10% of U.S. stroke patients get a treatment that evidence shows is most effective for ischemic stroke – and the odds are even lower for patients who are black and Hispanic, a U.S. study suggests.Reuters Health Information

BorgesSummaryBackgroundIn non-surgical settings, covert stroke is more common than overt stroke and is associated with cognitive decline. Although overt stroke occurs in less than 1% of adults after non-cardiac surgery and is associated with ...
Circulating microRNAs (miRNAs) have recently emerged as promising biomarkers for acute ischaemic stroke (AIS). However, the expression profiles of miRNAs in AIS patients receiving intravenous thrombolysis and their associations with outcome have not been investigated.
ConclusionsThis study demonstrated that increasing plasma level of TMAO may be associated with PSCI.
