Conclusion: Our study does not show any significant association between risk of sICH and poor outcome after IVT for patients on prior statin therapy. We also did not find significant association between the risk of sICH and poor outcome after IVT and the intensity of the stain used.Cerebrovasc Dis

CONCLUSIONS: Data from the literature suggest an association between statin use and a reduced risk of ASPSS after ischemic stroke and a reduced risk of PSE after ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke. Although the certainty of the evidence is low, these findings appear promising and worthy of further investigation. PMID: 32916580 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study aimed to evaluate the diagnostic value of serum S1P in acute stroke.Method: A total of 72 patients with ischemic stroke, 36 patients with hemorrhagic stroke, and 65 controls were enrolled. Serum S1P was detected by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA).Results: Receiver operating characteristic curve analysis demonstrated that serum S1P could discriminate ischemic stroke from hemorrhagic stroke in both total population and subgroup analyses of samples obtained within 24 h of symptom onset (subgroup

AbstractDiabetes is a well ‐established risk factor for both ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke. Individuals with diabetes not only have a higher risk of stroke, they also have worse clinical outcomes after stroke, including poorer neurological recovery, higher rates of stroke recurrence and mortality. In addition to optimizin g glycemia, control of cardiovascular risk factors like hypertension and dyslipidemia is crucial in stroke prevention in subjects with diabetes.

This article reviews the evidence base and recommendations for medical management for secondary stroke prevention. RECENT FINDINGS Recent developments for secondary stroke prevention include evidence to support the use of short-term dual antiplatelet therapy after minor stroke and transient ischemic attack, direct oral anticoagulants for nonvalvular atrial fibrillation, reversal agents for direct oral anticoagulant–associated hemorrhage, and aspirin rather than presumptive anticoagulation with a direct oral anticoagulant for embolic stroke of undetermined source. SUMMARY Most strokes are preventable. The mainst...

Authors: Cheng Y, Qiao L, Jiang Z, Dong X, Feng H, Gui Q, Lu Y, Liang Y Abstract The dose-dependent pleiotropic effects of statin therapy may have unwanted side effects such as increasing the risk of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). The relationships among statin therapy, LDL-cholesterol levels, and ICH risk remain controversial. Here, we conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis of dose-dependent statin therapy and ICH risk. Eligible articles were identified by searching MEDLINE from inception up to December 1, 2018. Reference lists of previous meta-analyses were manually searched to retrieve all relevant publi...

The objectives of the study were to examine the temporal trends and patient characteristics associated with prescription of thrombolytic, antithrombotic and statin medications among patients with first-ever stroke. MATERIALS AND METHODS: First-ever ischaemic and haemorrhagic stroke patients admitted to 2 Singapore tertiary hospitals between 2010‒2014 were included. Data were extracted from the National Healthcare Group Chronic Disease Management System. Association between drug utilisation and admission year, as well as characteristics associated with drug use, were explored using multivariable logistic regression. ...
