Impact of the physical activity on the phenotype of circulating monocytes and the biological characteristics of the carotid plaque
Atherosclerosis is accompanied by a low-grade inflammation which mobilizes the classical, intermediate and non-classical circulating monocytes. It was shown that an accumulation of leucocytes supports the development of intraplaque hemorrhage (IPH), making the plaque vulnerable, exposed to rupture and thrombosis. Moreover, the elevation of the rate of intermediate monocytes is associated with an increase in cardiovascular mortality and ischemic stroke. The benefit of endarterectomy (CE) remains discussed in the patients without stroke.

Feasibility of home-based, self-applied transcranial direct current stimulation to enhance motor learning in middle-aged and older adults
We read with great interest the recent letter sent to you by McConnell and colleagues [1], in which they discuss one of the first applications of truly independent home-based electrical brain stimulation, applied following safety recommendations. Transcranial direct-current stimulation (tDCS) is a non-invasive brain stimulation technique capable of modulating cortical excitability beyond the stimulation period [2,3]. tDCS presents interesting options as a therapeutic intervention in multiple neurological disorders, such as stroke, depression, chronic pain, schizophrenia, and Alzheimer ’s and Parkinson’s disease [4,5].

Carbon monoxide attenuates vasospasm and improves neurobehavioral function after subarachnoid hemorrhage.
Abstract Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is a devastating form of hemorrhagic stroke and is a serious medical condition caused by bleeding usually due to a ruptured aneurysm. Oxidative stress and inflammation from hemoglobin and heme released from lysed red blood cells are some postulated causes of vasospasm during SAH, which could lead to delayed cerebral ischemia. At low amounts, carbon monoxide (CO) gas may be neuroprotective through anti-inflammation, anti-cell death, and restoration of normal blood flow. Hence, this study focuses on a noninvasive strategy to treat SAH by using CO as therapeutic medical gas. Mic...

The continuous challenge of antithrombotic strategies in diabetes: focus on direct oral anticoagulants
AbstractDirect oral anticoagulants (DOACs) include dabigatran, which inhibits thrombin, and apixaban, edoxaban, and rivaroxaban, which inhibit factor Xa. They have been extensively studied in large trials involving patients affected by the most common cardiovascular diseases. As the presence of diabetes leads to peculiar changes in primary and secondary hemostasis, in this review we highlight the current evidence regarding DOAC use in diabetic patients included in the majority of recently conducted studies. Overall, in trials involving patients with atrial fibrillation, data seem to confirm at least a similar efficacy and ...

Comparative Effectiveness and Safety of Direct Oral Anticoagulants: Overview of Systematic Reviews
AbstractDirect oral anticoagulants are now recommended by major guidelines as first-choice agents for both stroke prevention in non-valvular atrial fibrillation and treatment/prevention of venous thromboembolism in non-cancer patients. Although there are no published head-to-head trials comparing different direct oral anticoagulants, a growing body of evidence from indirect comparisons and observational studies is suggesting that each direct oral anticoagulant may have a specific risk profile. This review aims to (1) synthesize and critically assess the latest evidence in comparative effectiveness and safety research in th...

Pacing in vasovagal syncope: a physiological paradox?
CThe physiological principles underlying pacemaker treatment in patients with vasovagal syncope (VVS) have never been reviewed. Current knowledge suggests that pacing the right heart is unlikely to correct blood pressure (BP) during a vasovagal reaction. In adults, the reason for this is that stroke volume (SV) is dictated by central blood volume (CBV) contained in the cardiopulmonary vessels within the chest (i.e. left ventricular preload). Preceding posture-triggered VVS, there is a significant fall in CBV and therefore in SV and cardiac output (CO) long before the onset of bradycardia.

Cervical arterial dissection: clinical characteristics in a neurology service in São Paulo, Brazil
Conclusion: The presence of atherosclerotic disease is considered rare in patients with cervical arterial dissection; however, our study found a high frequency of hypertension, smoking and dyslipidemia. The choice of antithrombotic remains controversial and will depend on the judgment of the medical professional; the clinical results with anticoagulation or antiaggregation were similar but there was more recanalization in the group treated with anticoagulation; its course was favorable in both situations. The recurrence of cervical arterial dissection and stroke is considered a rare event and its course is favorable.RESUMO...

Benefits of MRI for Patients With Low-risk Transient or Persistent Minor Neurologic Deficits
More than 1 million patients receive a diagnosis of stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA) in the United States each year. These patients are at increased risk of stroke during the first few weeks after the initial event, with the greatest risk during the first 2 days. Evidence-based secondary preventive measures are available to lower the risk of recurrent ischemic events, but for these measures to be effectively implemented, patients with stroke or TIA must be rapidly and correctly identified. Accurate diagnosis is important because some secondary preventive strategies carry risks of their own and are usually not appr...

Risk factors for early-onset seizures in patients with cerebral venous sinus thrombosis: A meta-analysis of observational studies
Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) is a subtype of cerebral stroke, with an annual incidence of approximately 3 –4 cases per million population [1]. Unlike other types of stroke, CVST typically occurs in young adults (mean age at onset: 35 years) [2]. In general, patients with CVST have a fair prognosis. Previous studies have shown that 60–79% of patients achieve good functional outcomes [Modified Rankin Scale (mRS) score 0–1) [3–4]. However, occurrence of seizures in these patients may adversely affect the prognosis; in one study, CVST patients with seizures were found to experience two-fold higher mortality ...

Embryonic developmental oxygen preconditions cardiovascular function response to acute hypoxic exposure and maximal {beta}-adrenergic stimulation of anesthetized juvenile American alligators (Alligator mississippiensis) RESEARCH ARTICLE
Brandt Smith, Janna L. Crossley, Ruth M. Elsey, James W. Hicks, and Dane A. Crossley II The effects of the embryonic environment on juvenile phenotypes are widely recognized. We investigated the effect of embryonic hypoxia on the cardiovascular phenotype of 4-year-old American alligators (Alligator mississippiensis). We hypothesized that embryonic 10% oxygen preconditions cardiac function, decreasing the reduction in cardiac contractility associated with acute 5% oxygen exposure in juvenile alligators. Our findings indicate that dobutamine injections caused a 90% increase in systolic pressure in juveniles that were incubat...
