A population stereotaxic positron emission tomography brain template for the macaque and its application to ischemic model

ConclusionWe have constructed a stereotaxic template set of macaque brain named HJT, which standardizes macaque neuroimaging data analysis, supports novel radiotracer development and facilitates translational neuro-disorders research.

AbstractTime-consuming reconstruction of volumetric data by area-detector-computed tomography (ADCT) scanning and narrow coverage of small-row ADCT may hinder volumetric scanning in acute stroke stage. To design a practical protocol of volumetric scanning for thrombectomy using an 80-row ADCT. An imaging protocol that focuses on the middle cerebral arteries by tilting the gantry of an 80-row ADCT with 0.5-mm-thick detectors can shorten the reconstruction time by 1.0-mm thickness scanning without subtraction. The reconstruction time of small volumetric data was 69 second. This practical protocol is applicable before thrombe...

ConclusionsThe most frequent causes of cSAH in our series were cerebral amyloid angiopathy, ischaemic stroke, and vasculitis. This type of haemorrhage has a worse prognosis than other non-aneurysmal cSAH. There are numerous possible causes, and prognosis depends on the aetiology. In elderly patients, intracranial haemorrhage is frequently associated with cognitive impairment.ResumenIntroducciónLas hemorragias subaracnoideas corticales (HSAc) tienen numerosas etiologías. No hay estudios prospectivos que indiquen su evolución a largo plazo. El objetivo de este trabajo es describir las característi...

A nationally recommended practice to accelerate thrombolytic therapy for acute ischemic stroke is to route emergency medical services (EMS)-transported stroke patients directly to the computed tomography (CT) scanner on arrival. We evaluated door-to-needle time with direct-to-CT routing versus emergency department (ED)-bed first routing.

Written by Meyers, edits by SmithA 50-ish year old man was working construction when he suddenly collapsed. Coworkers started CPR within 1 minute of collapse. EMS arrived within 10 minutes and continued CPR and ACLS, noting alternating asystole and sinus bradycardia during rhythm checks. He received various ACLS medications and arrived at the ED with a perfusing rhythm.Initial vitals included heart rate around 100 bpm and BP 174/96. Here is his initial ECG, very soon after ROSC:What do you think?Sinus tachycardia.  There is incomplete RBBB (QRS duration less than 120 ms).  There is diffuse STD, maximal in V4-V5 a...

In conclusion, FAS is a rare motor speech disorder, often related to cerebrovascular accidents involving critical regions in the dominant hemisphere. In addition, the present case adds further evidence to the role of the left primary motor cortex in modulation of prosody. In rare cases FAS can be the only sign of stroke or can appear after recovery from post-stroke aphasia.

CONCLUSIONS: This study provides significant evidence of the association between circulating NLR and R-DWILs in spontaneous ICH patients. Patients with NLR > 6.01 at 24-48 hours after ICH ictus should be paid more attention to when evaluating R-DWILs. PMID: 31651093 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: Symptomatic patients with ipsilateral carotid stenosis and silent brain ischaemia on pre-operative MR-DWI, more often showed pathological evidence of IPH compared with those without ischaemic lesions. This identifies carotid IPH as a marker for patients at risk of silent brain ischaemia and possibly for future stroke and other arterial disease complications. Such patients may be more likely to benefit from CEA than those without evidence of ipsilateral carotid IPH. PMID: 31631008 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract AIM OF THE STUDY: The aim of the study was to evaluate the clinical characteristics of patients with previous stroke (either ischemic or hemorrhagic), who developed status epilepticus (SE) mimicking a stroke relapse. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We performed a retrospective cohort study of patients brought to hospital by the emergency service between December 2016 and January 2018 with a stroke code as possible candidates for intravenous thrombolysis and who had already have a previous stroke. Among them, patients admitted for negative symptoms and finally discharged with a diagnosis of SE mimicking stroke...
