Association between K469E polymorphism of ICAM ‐1 gene and susceptibility of ischemic stroke: An updated meta‐analysis

ConclusionK469E polymorphism of ICAM ‐1 gene might be a risk factor for ischemic stroke in Caucasians, which suggested that K469E polymorphism might help in early identification of those at risk and help in primary prevention of ischemic stroke.

Conclusion: In patients of ischemic stroke platelet indices may be used for predicting severity of motor deficit. Although larger sample size and multivariate analysis is required before this can be used regularly in clinical practice. PMID: 31325260 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Medeiros CSP, Pacheco TBF, Cavalcanti FADC, Cacho RO, Bezerra AMDS Abstract Primary Objective: To compare the level of motor, sensory and functional impairment of individuals hospitalized in a stroke unit in Brazil at the time of admission and the profile observed at hospital discharge. Design: Observational and longitudinal outcome study. Methods and Procedure: We assessed 41 patients with ischemic stroke at admission and hospital discharge by using the National Institute of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS), Fugl-Meyer Physical Performance Scale (FM), Functional Independence Measure (FIM) and Modified Rankin S...

Abstract Early recanalization of the closed cerebral arteries after acute ischemic stroke (AIS) is the only treatment to minimize long-term disability and to reduce the associated morbidity and mortality. For a long time the only proven causal treatment of AIS was intravenous thrombolysis; however, after the publication of a series of randomized prospective studies concerning endovascular mechanical thrombectomy using stent retriever systems after AIS, new guidelines were published. It was found that endovascular treatment (EVT) dramatically improves the outcome of eligible patients. The stent retriever ...

Thrombosis is the main pathogenesis of acute ischemic stroke (AIS). The main treatments for stroke either have limited efficacy or increase the risk of bleeding. ADAMTS13 (a disintegrin and metalloproteinase with a thrombospondin type 1 motif, member 13) is a metal protease that can effectively break down VWF (Von Willebrand Factor, VWF), the key factor in thrombus formation. Previous studies have proven that the abnormality of its activity is associated with many diseases. In recent years, it has been found that ADAMTS13 is closely related to stroke. We focus on the relationship between ADAMTS13 and acute ischemic stroke,...

AbstractIntroductionDrug utilization and outcomes research in multi-ethnic Asian stroke populations is lacking.ObjectivesOur objective was to examine temporal trends and predictors of drug utilization and outcomes in a multi-ethnic Asian stroke population.MethodsThis registry-based study included ischemic and hemorrhagic first-ever stroke patients hospitalized between 2009 and 2016. Utilization of medications included in-hospital thrombolytic agents, early antithrombotics (antiplatelets, anticoagulants) within 48  h of admission, and antithrombotics and statins at discharge. Outcomes analyzed were in-hospital all-caus...

Authors: Kim SH, Choi JH, Kang MJ, Cha JK, Kim DH, Nah HW, Park HS, Kim SH, Huh JT Abstract OBJECTIVE: We evaluated efficacy of combining proximal balloon guiding catheter (antegrade flow arrest) and distal access catheter (aspiration at the site of occlusion) in thrombectomy for anterior circulation ischemic stroke. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed 116 patients who underwent mechanical thrombectomy with stent retriever. The patients were divided by the techniques adopted, the combined technique (proximal balloon guiding catheter and large bore distal access catheter) group (n=57, 49.1%) and the conventiona...
