Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) has one of the worst prognoses among patients with stroke. Surgical measures have been adopted to relieve the mass effect of the hematoma, and developing targeted therapy against secondary brain injury (SBI) after ICH is equally essential. Numerous preclinical and clinical studies have demonstrated that perihematomal edema (PHE) is a quantifiable marker of SBI after ICH and is associated with a poor prognosis. Thus, PHE has been considered a promising therapeutic target for ICH. However, the findings derived from existing studies on PHE are disparate and unclear. Therefore, it is necessary to...

ConclusionsLower serum Axl levels, which may result from sequence variations in GAS6-AS1, are correlated with an increased risk of HT after intravenous thrombolysis in stroke patients. Activation of the Axl signaling pathway by the GAS6 protein may serve as a therapeutic strategy to reduce HT in AIS patients.

AbstractPrescribing anticoagulation therapy in very old ( ≥ 80-years) patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) is an emerging clinical issue, but current knowledge and recommendations are insufficient. We aimed to determine the efficacy and safety of direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) in secondary stroke prevention in very old patients and to explore the related geriatric functional status of these patients. Three hundred fifty-three consecutive ≥ 80-year-old patients treated for transient ischemic attack (TIA) or ischemic stroke (IS) at the neurological clinic at UMC Ljubljana, who were prescribed...

Nervenarzt. 2021 Oct 15. doi: 10.1007/s00115-021-01206-w. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTOral anticoagulation in patients with cerebral amyloid angiopathy is a therapeutic challenge. The association of cerebral amyloid angiopathy with intracerebral hemorrhage, a high mortality of intracerebral hemorrhage especially under oral anticoagulation and the high risk of recurrent bleeding require a multidisciplinary approach and a thorough risk-benefit analysis. Vitamin K antagonists increase the risk of intracerebral bleeding and the accompanying mortality by 60% and should be avoided if possible or reserved for special clinical s...
