Strokes remain a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with ventricular assist devices (VADs). Varying study populations, event definitions, and reporting methods make direct comparison of neurologic event risk across clinical trials and registries challenging. We aim to highlight important differences among major VAD studies and standardize rates of neurologic events to facilitate a comprehensive and objective comparison. We systematically identified and analyzed key clinical trials and registries evaluating the HeartMate II (HMII), HeartMate 3 (HM3), and HVAD devices. Reported neurologic events were nonexc...

The role of metabolically unhealthy (MU) overweight in influencing stroke prognosis has not been fully assessed and conclusive data about the impact of sex are lacking. Aim of this study was to evaluate the possible correlations among MU overweight, sex and ischemic stroke severity and outcome.

AbstractStroke has a high incidence rate and often leads to permanent disability, particularly if it is not treated promptly. However, no blood biomarkers for early diagnosis are available to date. Therefore, we sought to detect stroke-specific blood biomarkers by identifying proteins associated with the underlying coagulation mechanism, which accounts for more than 80% of all stroke cases. Protein profiling was performed using blood samples from 16 healthy controls and 18 patients who suffered a stroke as the discovery set. We identified upregulated proteins (>  1.5-fold change andp value

The human connectome reflects the agenda for the new era of brain networks.1 The connectome represents the structural and functional layout of brain networks and often is represented as a mathematical grid.2-4 Brain network graphs provide a simplified view of the human brain connectome, using graph theory to abstractly define the brain as a set of anatomical regions (or “nodes”) and structural connections (called “edges”).4,5
