Ischemic Stroke and Risk of Venous Thromboembolism in the General Population: The Tromso Study Epidemiology
ConclusionsThe risk of VTE increased during the first 3 months after an ischemic stroke. The particularly high risk of provoked VTE suggests that additional predisposing factors, such as immobilization, potentiate the VTE risk in patients with ischemic stroke.

Emerging Subspecialties in Neurology: Pediatric stroke and cerebrovascular disorders
In 1895, a neuropathologist at the University of Vienna observed that "a large number of cases of infantile cerebral palsy is caused by the same factors that bring about the majority of cases of cerebral paralysis of adults: by tearing, embolism, and thrombosis of cerebral vessels."1 While Sigmund Freud would go on to become better known for other endeavors, his observation that children can have strokes paved the way for the development of the emerging subspecialty of pediatric stroke and cerebrovascular disorders.

Resolving Thrombus in the Left Atrial Appendage by Edoxaban Treatment after Acute Ischemic Stroke: Report of 2 Cases
Here we report first 2 cases of patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation with acute cardioembolic stroke in whom thrombi in the left atrial appendage (LAA) were resolved by edoxaban administration. Case 1 reports an 86-year-old woman who suddenly showed right hemiparesis and aphasia due to occlusion of the left middle cerebral artery. She received mechanical thrombectomy and recovered neurologically. Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) performed on day 1 demonstrated thrombus in the LAA.

Cognitive Outcomes following Thrombolysis in Acute Ischemic Stroke: A Systematic Review
Patients treated with thrombolytic therapy within 4.5 hours after stroke onset appear to have improved survival and functional outcomes. Poststroke cognitive impairment is associated with reduced quality of life and survival and needs to be reviewed in consideration of the administration of thrombolysis. This review aims to systematically evaluate literature exploring the effect of thrombolysis for ischemic stroke on cognition.

Incidence and Predictors of Early Recanalization After Intravenous Thrombolysis: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis Brief Reports
Conclusion— The overall incidence of ER after intravenous thrombolysis is substantial, highlighting the importance of reliably predicting ER to limit futile, interhospital transfers. Incidence of no-ER is particularly high for proximal occlusion and severe strokes. Given the scarcity of published data, further studies are needed to improve no-ER prediction accuracy.

Effective ADAPT Thrombectomy in a Patient with Acute Stroke due to Cardiac Papillary Elastofibroma: Histological Thrombus Confirmation
A 75-year-old man with hypertension and atrial fibrillation was admitted to our emergency room with right-sided hemiplegia and complete aphasia (National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale [NIHSS] score  = 18). A noncontrast computed tomography scan showed a slight hypodensity in the left insular region and a bright hyperdense sign in the M1 tract of the left middle cerebral artery (MCA). Angio-CT confirmed an occlusion of the M1 tract of the MCA. Magnetic resonance diffusion-weighted imaging/p erfusion-weighted imaging was obtained and revealed a mismatch in the left parietal cortical region.

Warfarin-Resistant Deep Vein Thrombosis during the Treatment of Acute Ischemic Stroke in Lung Adenocarcinoma
A 66-year-old man with acute ischemic stroke in the setting of lung adenocarcinoma developed acute-onset deep vein thrombosis (DVT) of the lower limbs after changing to warfarin from a heparin combination. The diagnosis of warfarin-resistant DVT was established based on the laboratory data and clinical evaluation. Heparin administration resulted in good control of thrombin regulation. Cancer patients are at high risk of venous thromboembolism, and the combination of these 2 conditions is known as Trousseau's syndrome.

Neurogenesis in Stroke Recovery
Abstract Stroke, resulting from limited blood flow to the brain, is one of the most important causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Stroke is classified as ischemic, due to lack of blood flow, or hemorrhagic, due to bleeding. Because 87 % of strokes are classified as ischemic, this type will be the predominant focus of this review. Except for thrombolytic therapy, there is no established treatment to reduce the neurological deficits caused by ischemic stroke. Therefore, it is necessary to develop new therapeutic strategies designed to improve neurological functions after ischemic stroke. Recently, therapie...

Thrombolytic Recanalization of Carotid Arteries Is Highly Dependent on Degree of Stenosis, Despite Sonothrombolysis Stroke
Conclusions In this model, the degree of carotid stenosis had a large effect on thrombolytic recanalization. Sonothrombolysis using standard parameters for intracranial sonothrombolysis did not increase recanalization. Further testing is warranted. The degree of underlying stenosis may be an important predictor of thrombolytic recanalization, and clinical correlation of these findings may provide new approaches to treatment selection for patients with carotid occlusion.

Partial MHC Constructs Treat Thromboembolic Ischemic Stroke Characterized by Early Immune Expansion
Abstract Inflammation and thrombosis are tightly linked, with inflammation contributing to thromboembolism and to stroke outcome. Thromboembolism is a frequent cause of ischemic stroke; yet, the most used occlusion mouse models of experimental stroke do not effectively replicate thromboembolism. Our group recently described a novel thromboembolic mouse model of stroke that successfully occludes the middle cerebral artery with high reproducibility. In the current study, we characterize the peripheral and local immune outcomes as well as the ischemic response to immune therapy in a clinically relevant mouse model of...

Alteplase Reduces Downstream Microvascular Thrombosis and Improves the Benefit of Large Artery Recanalization in Stroke Basic Sciences
Conclusions— Our data demonstrate that DMT is an early phenomenon initiated before recanalization. We further show that alteplase-dependent maintenance of downstream perfusion during MCAO improves acute ischemic stroke outcome through a fibrinogen-dependent platelet aggregation reduction. Our results indicate that early targeting of DMT represents a therapeutic strategy to improve the benefit of large artery recanalization in acute ischemic stroke.
