Late delayed radiation-induced cerebral Arteriopathy by high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging: a case report

Radiation therapy can cause cerebral arteriopahty, resulting in ischemic stroke. We document late-delayed cerebral arteriopathy by high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging (HR-MRI) in a middle aged man who h...

Coordination among the components of a stroke system is the most challenging but most essential aspect o...

In conclusion, isoflurane protected against BBB disruption caused by carbogen inhalation in mice and rats, but unlike isoflurane-mediated protection against ischemic BBB disruption, the effect could not be explained by anesthesia-induced hypothermia.

CONCLUSION: We found that even moderate serum levels of NT-proBNP were associated with the risk of total and ischemic strokes among Japanese whose NT-proBNP levels were relatively low compared with Westerners. PMID: 31932552 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions: Both training with the use of the Ekso GT exoskeleton and classical physiotherapy lead to functional improvement of patients after ischemic stroke. However, in the experimental group, improvement was observed in a larger number of categories, which may suggest potentially greater impact of treatment with the exoskeleton on functional status. Also, both forms of rehabilitation caused significant changes in balance, but we have noted some trends indicating that treatment with exoskeleton may be more beneficial for some patients. The load transfer from the backfoot to the forefoot observed in the control group wa...

Conclusions: Machine learning algorithms can be employed to develop prognostic predictive biomarkers for stroke outcomes in ischemic stroke patients, particularly in regard to identifying acute gene expression changes that occur during stroke.

We report an adult moyamoya disease (MMD) patient who developed persistent local vasogenic edema with dynamic change in the regional cerebral blood flow after left superficial temporal artery-middle cerebral artery (STA-MCA) anastomosis. A 49-year-old woman with ischemic-onset MMD underwent left STA-MCA anastomosis. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of fluid-attenuated inversion recovery 1 day after surgery revealed an asymptomatic local high-signal-intensity lesion at the site of anastomosis, and MR angiography demonstrated apparently patent STA-MCA bypass.

In this study, we aimed to investigate whether serum TMAO levels could predict early neurological deterioration (END) after acute ischemic stroke.Methods: We prospectively recruited patients with first-ever ischemic stroke and hospitalized within 24 h of symptoms onset during Mar 2018 to Mar 2019. Plasma TMAO levels were quantified using stable isotope dilution high-performance liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry after admission. END was defined as an increase in the total National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale by 2 or more points within 3 days.Results: Of the 362 patients included, END was diagnosed in...

ConclusionThis study strongly suggests that IR is probably an independent risk factor for END in non-diabetic patients with acute ischemic stroke.
