Factors Associated with Failure of Reperfusion in Endovascular Therapy for Acute Ischemic Stroke
ConclusionSeveral factors are associated with failure of reperfusion, most notably occlusions of the proximal ICA and low ASPECTS on admission. Conversely, stent placement in the proximal ICA was associated with reperfusion success.
RARITAN, NJ, March 28, 2020 – The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson &Johnson today announced the VOYAGER PAD study met its primary efficacy and principal safety endpoints, demonstrating the XARELTO® (rivaroxaban) vascular dose (2.5 mg twice daily) plus aspirin (100 mg once daily) was superior to aspirin alone in reducing the risk of major adverse limb and cardiovascular (CV) events by 15 percent in patients with symptomatic peripheral artery disease (PAD) after lower-extremity revascularization, with similar rates of TIMI major bleeding. VOYAGER PAD is the only study to show a significant benefit...
Conclusion: Anesthetic management with GA or CS during MT had no differential impact on the functional outcomes and mortality at discharge or 3 months after stroke in AIS patients, but CS led to more stable hemodynamics and lower incidence of pneumonia.

Conclusion: Our study showed that achieving complete recanalization with a single thrombectomy pass using the Trevo device was highly beneficial. The most common clinical factors that are used to determine eligibility for endovascular therapy, such as NIHSS severity, location of occlusion or patient age were not predictive of the ability to achieve FPE.
This study investigated the feasibility of electrical impedance tomography (EIT) for monitoring the deterioration of ischemic lesion after the onset of stroke. Approach : Fifteen rats were randomly distributed into two groups: rats operated to establish a right middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) ( n = 10), and sham-operated rats ( n = 5). Then, the operated rats were kept 2 h under anesthesia for EIT monitoring. Subsequently, descriptive statistical analysis was performed on whole-brain resistivity changes, and repeated-measures analysis of var...
In conclusion, isoflurane protected against BBB disruption caused by carbogen inhalation in mice and rats, but unlike isoflurane-mediated protection against ischemic BBB disruption, the effect could not be explained by anesthesia-induced hypothermia.
CONCLUSIONS: Patients with emergency conversion did not have lower chances of successful reperfusion or functional independence compared those with primary general anesthesia, and time to flow restoration was also similar. We found no evidence supporting the primary induction of general anesthesia in patients at risk for emergency conversion.
To examine the role of the CHA2DS2-VASc (Congestive heart failure; Hypertension; Age ≥75 years [doubled]; Diabetes; previous Stroke, transient ischemic attack, or thromboembolism [doubled]; Vascular disease; Age 65-75 years; and Sex category) score as a prognostic marker of in-hospital mortality in critically ill patients who develop new-onset atrial fibrillation (NOAF).
In this study, the authors evaluated the incidence, risk factors, and long-term implications of intraoperative ischemic events. METHODS: The authors retrospectively evaluated patients who had undergone resection of an LGG between 2013 and 2017. Analysis included pre- and postoperative demographic, clinical, radiological, and anesthetic data, as well as intraoperative neurophysiology data, overall survival, and functional and neurocognitive outcomes. RESULTS: Among the 82 patients included in the study, postoperative diffusion-weighted imaging showed evidence of acute ischemic strokes in 19 patients (23%), 13 of w...
