Factor Xa Inhibitor-Related Intracranial Hemorrhage (FiX-ICH): Results from a Multicenter, Observational Cohort Receiving Prothrombin Complex Concentrates.

Conclusions: Administration of PCC after apixaban and rivaroxaban-related ICH provided a high rate of excellent or good hemostasis (81.8%) coupled with a 3.8% thrombosis rate. Randomized, controlled trials evaluating the clinical efficacy of PCC in patients with FXa inhibitor-related ICH are needed. PMID: 32264698 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractCoronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), a disease caused by the novel betacoronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), has become a global pandemic threat. The potential involvement of COVID-19 in central nervous system (CNS) has attracted considerable attention due to neurological manifestations presented throughout the disease process. In addition, SARS-CoV-2 is structurally similar to SARS-CoV, and both bind to the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) receptor to enter human cells. Thus, cells expressing ACE2, such as neurons and glial cells may act as targets and are thus vulnerable to SARS-CoV-2 infection. Here, we have reviewed ...

CONCLUSIONS: Weight loss or gain could be a risk factor for mortality from total or ischemic CVD, while weight loss could be a risk factor for intracerebral hemorrhage. PMID: 32378530 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionThe results confirm that stent-assisted coiling with the Leo+ Baby stent is safe and efficient for treatment of wide neck or recurrent cerebral aneurysms. Spontaneous progressive aneurysm occlusion over 6  months supports the theory of considerable flow-modulating effects of Leo+ Baby.

AbstractFever can affect the majority of patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) and many times no identifiable source is found for the fever whether infectious or sterile, like deep vein thrombosis. We hypothesized that fever in SAH is mediated by a NON-cyclo-oxygenase-dependent mechanism, which we neologized as subarachnoid hemorrhage –induced pyrexia (SAHiP). This hypothesis was investigated using genetically modified mice, pharmacological manipulation, cerebrospinal fluid from SAH patients, and a large cohort of SAH patients. Mice with deletions of neuronal prostaglandin EP3 receptor, global toll-like recepto...

CONCLUSIONS: The prevalence of stroke in this cohort was 3.1%. Ischemic strokes had a bimodal presentation, occurring either early after SLE diagnosis or after a several-year delay. Half of the hemorrhagic strokes occurred>10 years after the diagnosis of SLE. Clinical outcome was usually good with a relatively low recurrence rate.

Neurological examination showed left hemiparesis, hypoesthesia in left arm and leg. Brain computer tomography images showed a large intraparenchymal hematoma in the right frontoparietal lobes with mass effect on adjacent subarachnoid spaces and on lateral vent...

Rebleeding and hematoma growth are serious complications in subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) and intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). As treatment options are sparse, a mechanistic approach may reveal new therapeutic targets.

Semin Neurol DOI: 10.1055/s-0040-1702942Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS) is a clinical–radiologic diagnosis that affects children and adolescents, but it is much more frequently reported in adults. Clinically, patients present with severe and commonly recurrent thunderclap headaches. Typical precipitating triggers include vasoactive substances, serotonergic agents, and the postpartum period. There may be associated neurologic complications at presentation or in the weeks following, such as convexity subarachnoid hemorrhage, stroke, cerebral edema, cervical artery dissection (CeAD), and seizures. A...

Conclusion Prophylactic heparin was associated with a nonsignificant increase in any hematoma enlargement and mortality, a nonsignificant reduction in extracranial hemorrhage, and a nonsignificant increase in the incidence of major disability in patients with sICH. It is probably safe to administer heparin to prevent VTE in patients with sICH.
