AbstractThe role of hyperosmolar therapy (HT) in large hemispheric ischemic or hemorrhagic strokes remains a controversial issue. Past and current stroke guidelines state that it represents a reasonable therapeutic measure for patients with either neurological deterioration or intracranial pressure (ICP) elevations documented by ICP monitoring. However, the lack of evidence for a clear effect of this therapy on radiological tissue shifts and clinical outcomes produces uncertainty with respect to the appropriateness of its implementation and duration in the context of radiological mass effect without clinical correlates of ...

AbstractDirect stenting (DS) without pre-dilatation of the culprit lesion might improve myocardial perfusion and prognosis in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention for ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI); however, some studies report conflicting results. We investigated whether DS provides incremental myocardial benefits over conventional stenting (CS) in STEMI patients based on cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) measures. Reperfused patients who underwent CMR examinations within 1  week of STEMI onset were selected from a multicenter CMR registry of STEMI (NCT: 03768453). Patients were s...

AbstractInconsistency in outcome parameters for delayed cerebral ischemia (DCI) makes it difficult to compare results between mouse studies, in the same way inconsistency in outcome parameters in human studies has for long obstructed adequate comparison. The absence of an established definition may in part be responsible for the failed translational results. The present article proposes a standardized definition for DCI in experimental mouse models, which can be used as outcome measure in future animal studies. We used a consensus-building approach to propose a definition for “experimental secondary ischemia” (...

Purpose of review This review summarizes the physiological basis of autoregulation-oriented therapy in critically ill patients, with a particular emphasis on individual targets based on parameters that describe autoregulation of cerebral blood flow. Recent findings The concepts of optimal cerebral perfusion (CPPopt) and arterial pressures (ABPopt), which both take advantage of continuous measures of cerebral autoregulation, recently have been introduced into clinical practice. It is hypothesized that if both pressures are used as individual targets and followed, the incidence and severity of dysautoregulation will dim...

Authors: White H, Venkatesh B, Jones M, Kruger PS, Walsham J, Fuentes H Abstract Objective: Although extensively studied in children, the safety and tolerability of ketone supplementation in adults is unclear, particularly in the acute brain injury population. The purpose of this study was to examine the feasibility and safety of inducing ketosis using an enteric ketogenic formulation and determine its impact on intracranial and cerebral perfusion pressures and metabolic parameters.Methods: Prospective interventional Phase II trial of ventilated critically ill patients with acute brain injury administered a ketogen...

Objective: To explore the value of whole-brain perfusion parameters combined with multiphase computed tomography angiography (MP-CTA) in predicting the hemorrhagic transformation (HT) of ischemic stroke. Methods: A total of 64 patients with ischemic stroke who underwent noncontrast computed tomography, computed tomography perfusion imaging, and computed tomography angiography before treatment from August 2017 to June 2019 were included retrospectively. The perfusion parameters cerebral blood volume (CBV), cerebral blood flow (CBF), time to peak (TTP), mean transit time (MTT), time to maximum (Tmax), and permeability surfac...

Conclusion: In patients with hemorrhagic MMD, the CBV appeared to decrease and be relatively stable in the chronic phase after revascularization, with varying degrees of MTT and TTP shortening. However, there was no significant change in CBF.

ConclusionOur everyday clinical practice experience suggests 9.8  % of consecutive AIS patients present in the 4.5–9 h window and 2.2 % adhere to EXTEND neuroimaging eligibility criteria for IVT. Only 1.3% of AIS is eligible for IVT according to EXTEND neuroimaging and clinical eligibility criteria.

The thalamus is related to language function, and some thalamic stroke cases can cause aphasia [1]. However, most previous cases reporting thalamic damage-induced ipsilateral subcortical diaschisis and aphasia were hemorrhagic stroke [1,2]. Only a few left thalamus infarction cases showed cortical hypoperfusion concerned with the aphasia, but no single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) or thalamic nucleus data were available [3]. Thus, aphasia pathology due to cortical hypoperfusion following thalamus infarction, especially with respect to thalamic nuclei, is still unknown.
