Intravenous Thrombolysis For Acute Ischemic Stroke in Fabry Disease

Conclusion: The present case supports the scarce data underscoring the safety of intravenous thrombolysis for acute ischemic stroke in Fabry disease patients even when cerebral microbleeds are present.

Background and Purpose: Automated imaging software is integral to decision-making in acute ischemic stroke (AIS) during extended time windows. RAPID software is the most widely used and has been validated in landmark endovascular trials. Olea software is another commercially available and FDA-approved software, but has not been studied in AIS trials. We aimed to compare the diagnostic utility and accuracy of RAPID and Olea in everyday clinical practice outside of a clinical trial. Methods: We analyzed prospectively-collected data from a consecutive cohort of 141 patients with suspected AIS who underwent computed tomography...

We report a case of moyamoya disease with epileptic nystagmus. A 23-year-old woman presented with a headache and transient hemiparesis on her left side. Magnetic resonance imaging showed no ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke lesions. Digital subtraction angiography confirmed stenosis of the terminal portion of the right internal carotid artery and the formation of moyamoya vessels on the right side. 123I-N-isopropyl-iodoamphetamine (123I-IMP) single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) showed decreased uptake in the right basal ganglia, frontal, and parietal regions. After electroencephalography (EEG) and a hyperventila...

AbstractThe RAPID © software is the most commonly used computed tomography perfusion (CTP) software in stroke centers. It is estimated that about 1300 hospitals in the world are using this software for decision-making in ischemic stroke. The software provides the estimated volume of infarction and ischemic penumbra, so it is the backbone of treatment planning in these patients. In this manuscript, we present two cases of subacute infarction with misleading CTP using RAPID© software. We believe that given the popularity of this software and increasing application of CTP in subacute infarction, this pitfall is like...

ConclusionThe diagnostic workup and, to a greater extent, the revascularisation treatments of typical stroke patients vary considerably across European countries. This study reinforces the need to compare the quality of stroke care in terms of process and outcomes between countries. Research is also needed to investigate the cost-effectiveness of second-line imaging strategies in acute stroke care.

A 76-year-old woman with a history of left semiovale ischaemic lacunar stroke was admitted to hospital for suspected acute coronary syndrome and transient ischaemic attack. The previous year, echocardiography had shown normal results. Neither coronarography nor encephalic computed tomography showed significant lesions. Brain magnetic resonance imaging revealed multiple strokes in different arterial regions, with probable cardioembolic origin (Panel A).

ConclusionLesion-aphasia discordance following acute stroke is not uncommon among Bengali-speaking subjects. In the discordant group, preponderance towards non-fluent aphasia was observed. Discordance occurred more frequently after hemorrhagic stroke. Subjects with lesion-discordant aphasia presented better recovery during early post-stroke phase.

Cerebral recanalization therapy, either intravenous thrombolysis or mechanical thrombectomy, improves the outcomes in patients with acute ischemic stroke by restoring the cerebral perfusion of the ischemic penumbra. Cerebral hemodynamic evaluation after recanalization therapy, can help identify patients with high risks of reperfusion-associated complications. Among the various hemodynamic modalities, magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography perfusion, and transcranial Doppler sonography are the most commonly used. Poststroke hypoperfusion is associated with infarct expansion, while hyperperfusion, which once was con...

Conclusion: This network meta-analysis provides supporting evidence to the idea that DWI has a higher diagnostic value regarding ischemic stroke among MRI methods, and CTP has a poor diagnostic value among CT methods, which provide therapeutic considerations for Ischemic stroke intervention.

J Neurol Surg A Cent Eur Neurosurg DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1691754A young patient presented to our hospital with ischemic stroke. She underwent a routine blood test, head computed tomography (CT), brain magnetic resonance imaging, a bone marrow biopsy, and CT angiography. Her diagnosis was a bilateral vertebral artery dissection associated with essential thrombocythemia (ET). She was treated with antiplatelet therapy and a stent implantation. The association of bilateral vertebral artery dissection with ET is rare. An early diagnosis and timely management is key to the best outcome. [...] Georg Thieme Verlag KG Stuttgart &midd...
