The Association between Migraine and Fetal-Type Posterior Cerebral Artery in Patients with Ischemic Stroke
Conclusion: Migraine was associated with fetal-type PCA in patients with ischemic stroke. This finding supported the hypothesis that vascular mechanisms get involved in the migraine-stroke association.Cerebrovasc Dis (Source: Cerebrovascular Diseases)

Advances in the Pharmacological Intervention of Endothelial Progenitor Cells in the Treatment of Ischemic Stroke
Background: Ischemic stroke, a common central nervous system disease that seriously threatens human life and health, is characterized by rapid progress and a high disability fatality rate. Ischemic tissue can produce a large amount of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and stromal cell-derived factor 1 (SDF-1) to promote the mobilization of endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs).Summary: As newly discovered stem cells, EPCs can promote angiogenesis in ischemic tissue, repair the damaged vascular endothelium, and maintain vascular homeostasis. Thus, EPCs have become a new research hotspot in this field. This review focu...

Ischemic Stroke and Vaccine-Induced Immune Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia following COVID-19 Vaccine: A Case Report with Systematic Review of the Literature
Conclusion: Our study points out that, in addition to cerebral venous thrombosis, adenoviral vector-based vaccines also appear to have a cerebral arterial thrombotic risk, and clinicians should be aware that ischemic stroke with LVO, although rare, could represent a clinical presentation of VITT.Cerebrovasc Dis (Source: Cerebrovascular Diseases)
