Soluble triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells-1 as a serum biomarker of early neurologic deterioration and prognosis in acute supratentorial intracerebral hemorrhage

CONCLUSION: Serum sTREM-1 may represent a promising inflammatory biomarker for assessment of severity and prediction of END and poor outcome after ICH.PMID:34655609 | DOI:10.1016/j.cca.2021.10.010

Conclusion: Distinct cerebrovascular disease profiles are identifiable in PI-born patients who present with TIA or stroke symptoms in Australia. These may be used in the future to direct targeted approaches to stroke prevention and care in culturally and linguistically diverse populations.Neuroepidemiology

Conclusions An intensive course of tDCS, as delivered in this study, does not improve motor, mood, and cognitive outcomes in ischemic/hemorrhagic stroke in patients undergoing individualized rehabilitation. The study provides important leads for directions for future research.

AbstractAlthough the assessment of nutrition is essential for stroke patients, detailed associations between nutritional status at admission, subsequent complications, and clinical outcomes in patients with acute intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) are unclear. We aimed to elucidate these associations using the Controlling Nutritional Status (CONUT) score. Consecutive patients with acute ICH were investigated. Nutritional status was evaluated using the CONUT score, calculated from the serum albumin level, lymphocyte count, and total cholesterol level. Subsequent complications, such as hemorrhage expansion (HE) during the acute ...

Symptomatic hemorrhagic transformation (HT) is one of the complications most likely to lead to death in patients with acute ischemic stroke. HT after acute ischemic stroke is diagnosed when certain areas of cerebral infarction appear as cerebral hemorrhage on radiological images. Its mechanisms are usually explained by disruption of the blood-brain barrier and reperfusion injury that causes leakage of peripheral blood cells. In ischemic infarction, HT may be a natural progression of acute ischemic stroke and can be facilitated or enhanced by reperfusion therapy. Therefore, to balance risks and benefits, HT occurrence in ac...

In most patients with intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH), the hematoma and perihematomal area decrease over the subsequent months but patients continue to exhibit neurological impairments. In this serial imaging study, we characterized microstructural and neurophysiological changes in the ICH-affected brain tissues and collected the National Institute of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) and modified Rankin Score (mRS), two clinical stroke scale scores. Twelve ICH patients were serially imaged on a 3T MRI at 1, 3, and 12 months (M) after injury. The hematoma and perihematomal volume masks were created and segmented using FLAIR imagi...

Experimental &Molecular Medicine, Published online: 30 November 2021; doi:10.1038/s12276-021-00702-yTreatments that target the proteins responsible for inflammation might reduce brain damage after a hemorrhage. Sudden bleeding into the brain, known as intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH), is associated with strokes and head injuries. Inflammation exacerbates ICH-induced injury after an incident, and is activated by protein complexes called inflammasomes. Jing Zhao and co-workers at Chongqing Medical University in China induced ICH symptoms in rats by extracting arterial blood and injecting it into the basal ganglia of the br...

CONCLUSION: Patients with CVT have a higher risk of thrombolysis-related intracranial hemorrhage than other stroke mimics. A greater focus on noncontrast brain CT and the venous phase of CT angiography help identifying this stroke mimic before thrombolysis.PMID:34841501

Acta Neurol Taiwan. 2021 Dec 15;30(4):123-127.ABSTRACTThe incidence of both ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke is more common in Asians compared to Caucasian (1). It is found there is a decreased incidence of ischemic stroke in Northern America but increased incidence in Africa, Mongolia and southeast Asia. In the epidemiological study of carotid artery stenosis (CAS), Framingham study showed the prevalence of significant extracranial CAS was 7% in women and 9% in men (2). Among all strokes in Caucasian population, 20 to 30% were due to extracranial CAS and 5 to 10% due to intracranial atherosclerosis (3, 4). Northern Manhatt...
