Comparison of Performance Achievement Award Recognition With Primary Stroke Center Certification for Acute Ischemic Stroke Care Stroke
Conclusions While both PSC certification and GWTG-Stroke PAA recognition identified hospitals providing higher conformity with care measures for patients hospitalized with acute ischemic stroke, PAA recognition was a more robust identifier of hospitals with better performance.

Stroke Severity Is a Crucial Predictor of Outcome: An International Prospective Validation Study Stroke
Conclusions In this prospective pilot study, the baseline NIHSS score was essential for prediction of acute ischemic stroke outcomes, followed by age; whereas traditional comorbidity index contributed little to the overall model. Future studies of stroke outcomes between different care systems will benefit from including a baseline NIHSS score.

Pulmonary Embolism in Ischemic Stroke: Clinical Presentation, Risk Factors, and Outcome Stroke
Conclusions In this large cohort study, PE occurred in nearly 1% of AIS patients. PE was more common in patients with severe stroke, history of cancer, previous DVT/PE or acute DVT and associated with lower short- and long-term survival, greater disability, and longer length of stay.

Compliance With Acute Stroke Care Quality Measures in Hospitals With and Without Primary Stroke Center Certification: The North Carolina Stroke Care Collaborative Stroke
Conclusions PSC certification is associated with an overall improvement in the quality of stroke care in North Carolina; however, room for improvement remains.

Can a Novel Clinical Risk Score Improve Pneumonia Prediction in Acute Stroke Care? A UK Multicenter Cohort Study Stroke
Conclusions The ISAN score is a simple tool for predicting SAP in clinical practice. External validation is required in ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke cohorts.

Sex Disparities in Stroke: Women Have More Severe Strokes but Better Survival Than Men Stroke
Conclusions Stroke affects women and men differently. Elderly women were affected more severely than elderly men but were more likely to survive.

Detection of Atrial Fibrillation Among Patients With Stroke Due to Large or Small Vessel Disease: A Meta-Analysis Stroke
Conclusions AF detection rate is similar in patients with small and large vessel strokes (2.2–2.4%). Because no studies reported on extended monitoring (>7 days) in these stroke populations, we could not estimate the yield of AF detection with long-term cardiac monitoring. Randomized controlled trials are needed to examine the utility of AF detection with long-term cardiac monitoring (>7 days) in this patient population.

Nonsustained Atrial Fibrillation in Ischemic Stroke Patients and Stroke-Free Controls From the Perspective of Stroke Pathophysiology Stroke
Conclusions Our study shows a higher prevalence of NS-AF episodes in ischemic stroke patients in comparison to controls. Nonetheless, the lack of a stronger association with cryptogenic strokes and absence of a relationship with chronic cortical infarcts brings into question the causal influence of NS-AF in the ischemic stroke setting.

Racial/Ethnic and Sex Differences in Emergency Medical Services Transport Among Hospitalized US Stroke Patients: Analysis of the National Get With The Guidelines-Stroke Registry Stroke
Conclusions EMS use differed by race/ethnicity and sex. These contemporary data document suboptimal use of EMS transport among US stroke patients, especially by racial/ethnic minorities and those with less recognized stroke symptoms.

Identification of PTCSC3 as a Novel Locus for Large-Vessel Ischemic Stroke: A Genome-Wide Association Study Stroke
Conclusions Our data provide strong support for future studies on the role of PTCSC3 in the pathogenesis of LAA stroke and the association between LAA stroke development and thyroid function. In addition, these findings provide insights into the genetic basis of LAA stroke and identify a novel pathway that might be applicable for future therapeutic intervention.

Particulate Matter and Hospital Admissions for Stroke in Beijing, China: Modification Effects by Ambient Temperature Stroke
Conclusions This study suggests that the associations of PM2.5, PM2.5–10, and PM10 with stroke admissions differed across levels of temperature. Short-term exposure to PM2.5, PM2.5–10, and PM10 was positively associated with hospital admissions for ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke on warm days (>13.5°C).
