Tea consumption and risk of stroke in Chinese adults: a prospective cohort study of 0.5 million men and women.
Tea consumption and risk of stroke in Chinese adults: a prospective cohort study of 0.5 million men and women. Am J Clin Nutr. 2019 Nov 11;: Authors: Tian T, Lv J, Jin G, Yu C, Guo Y, Bian Z, Yang L, Chen Y, Shen H, Chen Z, Hu Z, Li L, China Kadoorie Biobank Collaborative Group Abstract BACKGROUND: Many cohort studies have explored the relation between tea consumption and stroke risk; however, the conclusions have been inconsistent. In addition, evidence is lacking in China, where the patterns of tea consumption and main types of tea consumed differ substantially from those in high-income countries. OBJECTIVE: We aimed to systematically assess the association of tea consumption with the risk of stroke based on a Chinese large-scale cohort study. METHODS: A total of 487,377 participants from the China Kadoorie Biobank were included in the present study. Detailed information about tea consumption (including frequency, duration, amount, and tea type) was self-reported at baseline. After ∼4.3 million person-years of follow-up, 38,727 incident cases of stroke were recorded, mainly through linkage with mortality and morbidity registries and based on the national health insurance system. RESULTS: Overall, 128,280 adults (26.3%) reported drinking tea almost daily (41.4% men, 15.9% women), predominantly green tea (86.7%). Tea consumption had an inverse and dose-response relation with the risk of stroke (Ptrend
Conclusion: Ischemic stroke might not be associated with portal vein thrombosis in liver cirrhosis. PMID: 32714987 [PubMed - in process]
oi Hong This cross-sectional study aimed to evaluate the association between periodontitis and cardiovascular disease (CVD) by reviewing and discussing the role of the oral microbiome in periodontitis and CVD. This prospective cohort study used epidemiological data from the Korean Genome and Epidemiology Study from 2004 to 2016. We selected 9973 patients with periodontitis and 125,304 controls (non-periodontitis) from 173,209 participants and analyzed their medical histories to determine the relationship between cerebral stroke/ischemic heart disease and periodontitis. The participants were questioned about any prev...
Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH), caused by a rupture of a brain artery into brain parenchyma, is the second most common form of stroke after ischemic stroke.1 Approximately 40% of the patients die within one month, and many remain with major disabilities.2 There is no effective medical or surgical treatment option, and those in clinical use are mainly supportive in nature, even though management in dedicated stroke units will likely reduce mortality and morbidity.3 Several chronic risk factors such as hypertension, older age, and high alcohol consumption have been shown to associate with ICH.
Authors: Susmitha K, Chandrasekhar V, Kiran G, Divya A, Rani GS, Sarangapani M Abstract Stroke is becoming a main cause of early death and disability in developing countries like India, and it is mostly enhanced by increased predominance of major risk factors. A detailed knowledge about the nature and magnitude of the stroke cases in this particular area is not only important for acute treatment but also it helps to prevent hospital admissions due to reoccurring stroke. The present study was conducted in the Department of Stroke at MGM Hospital, Warangal, India, to study the patterns of stroke admissions. All the c...
We investigated the associations between alcohol-related emergency department visits and hospitalizations and vascular events including acute ischemic stroke, intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH), and subarachnoid hemorrhage.
ConclusionsCumulative alcohol consumption is an independent risk factor of total stroke and IS in men in a community-based cohort. Even light alcohol intake increases the risk of total stroke and IS.

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is associated with high cardiovascular morbidity and mortality which usually is considered to be related to cardiac involvement, while scarce attention is addressed to brain damage. Viceversa NAFLD is associated with asymptomatic brain lesions, alterations in cerebral perfusion and activity, cognitive impairment and brain aging and with increased risk and severity of both ischemic and haemorrhagic stroke. Besides known metabolic risk factors, NAFLD is characterized by a pro inflammatory state, which contributes to atherosclerosis and microglia activation, endothelial dysfunction, p...
We present an unusual case of GDAVF in a 37-year-old man with NF1. The fistula drained directly to the vein of Galen through multiple feeders. Complete occlusion of the fistula was achieved through trans-arterial embolisation with Onyx (ethylene vinyl alcohol copolymer) in a single treatment session. Deep venous drainage remained intact, and the patient recovered well. To our knowledge, this is the first report on complete closure of GDAVF with NF1 using trans-arterial embolisation. The preservation of functioning of the straight sinus may have contributed to the success of treatment. PMID: 31146620 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
