Balloon Guide Catheter in Endovascular Treatment for Acute Ischemic Stroke: Results from the MR CLEAN Registry

ConclusionsIn clinical practice, use of a BGC was associated with higher reperfusion grade and early improvement of neurologic deficits, but had no positive effect on long-term functional outcome.

A novel free radical scavenger, NSP-116, has anti-oxidative effect and may ameliorate reperfusion injury. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of NSP-116 on both ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke models.First, we assessed whether NSP-116 has protective effects in vitro. Pr...

The indications for mitral valve surgery in patients with advanced non-ischemic dilated cardiomyopathy and functional mitral regurgitation are still unclear. We reviewed our experience of mitral valve surgery in such patients and explored factors that were predictive of outcomes. Fifty-three consecutive patients with non-ischemic dilated cardiomyopathy and an ejection fraction

AbstractObjectiveTo evaluate the efficacy and safety of endovascular treatment (ET) of acute ischemic stroke (AIS) caused by intracranial atherosclerotic large vessel occlusion (ICAS-LVO).MethodsA  systemic review and meta-analysis were conducted on studies published between July 2005 and October 2018 on the outcomes of ET in patients with AIS due to ICAS-LVO. The outcomes of the ICAS-LVO and embolic LVO groups were also compared.ResultsA total of 17 studies including 1315 subjects with ICAS-LVO were included. In the single-arm meta-analysis, the pooled estimates of successful recanalization rate, favorable outcomes, ...

Lee Lee Sympathetic overactivity is associated with hyperhidrosis and cardiovascular diseases. Endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy (ETS) is a treatment for hyperhidrosis. We aimed to compare the risk for cardiovascular events between individuals with and without hyperhidrosis and investigate the effects of ETS on cardiovascular outcomes. We conducted a nationwide population-based cohort study using data acquired from the Korean Health Insurance Review and Assessment Service. Subjects newly diagnosed with hyperhidrosis in 2010 were identified and divided into two groups according to whether or not they underwent ETS....

ConclusionAnticoagulant use is associated with higher prevalence and incidence of CMBs. This association appears to depend on location of CMBs and type of anticoagulants. More longitudinal investigations with adjustment for confounders are required to establish the causality.
