Homocysteine Level Predicts Response to Dual Antiplatelet in Women With Minor Stroke or Transient Ischemic Attack: Subanalysis of the CHANCE Trial.
CONCLUSIONS: Homocysteine could be a potential biomarker to discriminate the effects of dual and single antiplatelet therapy in female patients with minor ischemic stroke or high-risk transient ischemic attack.

We present a rare case of hemichorea associated with a hemorrhagic stroke in the contralateral striatum.
The geriatric population is at high risk of severe low blood glucose (LBG) events due to diminished homeostatic mechanisms, especially on hypoglycemic medications. Moderate to severe LBG events in these patients can contribute to behavior changes such as agitation, change in level of consciousness, disruption of sleep, instability and increased risk of myocardial infarction, stroke and falls. Rapid recognition and appropriate treatment and prevention of LBG and recurrences can reduce risk for hospitalization in the geriatric population.

The fight against the new virus is continuing, with crews scrubbing everything from money to buses and quarantines in effect in places from a beachfront resort in the Atlantic to a remote island in the Pacific
As the Chinese healthcare system focuses on containing the spread of the coronavirus, medical device companies doing business in China are seeing lower procedure volumes, which means lower-than-expected revenue in the first quarter. Potential supply chain disruptions could further impact top-line growth for some medical device companies. Boston Scientific expects the virus to lower first-quarter revenue by $10 million to $40 million, according to an earnings call earlier this monthÂ transcribed by SeekingAlpha. "While we're still in the very early stages of assessing the impact and highly focused on support...
