Diagnostic value of transcranial ultrasonography for selecting subjects with large vessel occlusion: a systematic review
ConclusionsTranscranial ultrasonography might potentially be used for the selection of subjects with acute LVO, to help streamline patient care and allow direct transfer to specialised endovascular centres. It can also assist in detecting haemorrhagic lesions in some cases, however, its applicability here is largely restricted. Additional research should optimize the scanning technique. Further work is required to demonstrate whether this diagnostic approach, possibly combined with clinical assessment, could be used at the pre-hospital stage to justify direct transfer to a regional thrombectomy centre in suitable cases.

Association of obesity with cardiovascular outcomes in patients with type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease: Insights from TECOS
ConclusionsThe majority of TECOS participants with ASCVD and T2D were overweight or obese, yet overweight or obese class I individuals had lower CV risk than those who were under/normal weight. These results suggest the presence of an obesity paradox, but this paradox may reflect an epidemiological artifact rather than a true negative association between normal weight and clinical outcomes.

Do Alternative Cooling Methods Have Effective Cooling Rates for Hyperthermia Compared With Previously Established CWI Cooling Rates?
Authors: Parker KC, Shelton RR, Lopez RM Abstract Clinical Scenario: In the last few years, there have been several studies examining alternative cooling strategies in the treatment of exertional heat stroke (EHS). Morbidity and mortality with EHS are associated with how long the patient's core body temperature remains above the critical threshold of 40.5°C. Although cold-water immersion (CWI) is the gold standard of treatment when cooling a patient with EHS, more recent alternative cooling techniques have been examined for use in settings where CWI may not be feasible (ie, remote locations).

LEA 24. Synthetic Marijuana and Acute Lower Limb Thromboembolism and Ischemia —A Case Report
Synthetic marijuana use has been reported in the last years as a possible causative factor of different cardiovascular events, including myocardial infarction, ischemic stroke, intracranial bleeding, and cerebral vasospasm. One case of aortic thrombosis was also reported, but that was in a patient using cocaine and synthetic marijuana together. A case of lower limb thromboembolism and synthetic marijuana use has not been reported to date. Intoxication, material impurity, blood vessel reactivity, and chemical interaction with other drugs have been proposed as possible mechanisms of these events.

Gender Differences in Arrhythmias: Focused on Atrial Fibrillation
AbstractThere are significant differences in clinical presentation and treatment of atrial fibrillation (AF) between women and men. The primary goal of AF management is to restore sinus rhythm and to prevent various complications, including stroke and heart failure. In many areas of AF, such as prevalence, clinical manifestations, morbidity, risk factors, pathophysiology, treatment strategies, and complications, gender-specific variability is observed and needs to be further addressed by large-scale population researches or randomized clinical trials, which help to promote the customization of AF treatment programs, hence ...

Effectiveness of rehabilitation interventions to improve paretic propulsion in individuals with stroke – A systematic review
Interventions that yielded gains in propulsion appeared to have in common that they challenged and/or enabled the utilization of latent propulsive capacity of the paretic leg during walking. Walking speed generally increased, regardless of the observed change in propulsion, suggesting the use of compensatory mechanisms. Findings should, however, be interpreted with some caution, as the evidence base for this emerging focus of rehabilitation is limited.

Tricarboxylic acid cycle enzyme activities in a mouse model of methylmalonic aciduria
This study demonstrates decreased activity of certain TCA cycle enzymes and by corollary decreased TCA cycle function, but it supports decreased protein quantity rather than “toxic inhibition” as the underlying mechanism of action.SummaryMethylmalonic acidemia (MMA) is an inborn metabolic disorder of propionate catabolism. In this disorder, toxic metabolites are considered to be the major pathogenic mechanism for acute and long-term complications. However, despite optimized therapies aimed at reducing metabolite levels, patients continue to suffer from late complications, including metabolic stroke and renal insufficie...

Event-related desynchronization possibly discriminates the kinesthetic illusion induced by visual stimulation from movement observation.
This study sought to identify a biomarker of KINVIS using event-related desynchronization (ERD) to improve the application of KINVIS to brain-machine interface (BMI) therapy of patients with stroke with hemiparesis. We included healthy adults in whom KINVIS could be induced. Scalp electroencephalograms were recorded during the KINVIS condition, where KINVIS was induced using a self-movement image. The findings were compared to signals recorded during an observation (OB) condition where only the self-movement image was viewed. For the signal intensity of the α- and low β-frequency bands, we calculated ERD during a movie p...

Noninvasive measurement of stroke volume changes in critically ill patients by means of electrical impedance tomography
AbstractPrevious animal experiments have suggested that electrical impedance tomography (EIT) has the ability to noninvasively track changes in cardiac stroke volume (SV). The present study intended to reproduce these findings in patients during a fluid challenge. In a prospective observational study including critically ill patients on mechanical ventilation, SV was estimated via ECG-gated EIT before and after a fluid challenge and compared to transpulmonary thermodilution reference measurements. Relative changes in EIT-derived cardiosynchronous impedance changes in the heart (\(\Delta {\text{Z}}_{\text{H}}\)) and lung re...

Acrolein is involved in ischemic stroke-induced neurotoxicity through spermidine/spermine-N1-acetyltransferase activation.
CONCLUSION: Overall, our current results demonstrate that acrolein is a culprit of neuronal damage through GSH depletion in stroke patients. The mechanism underlying the role of acrolein in stroke-related neuronal damage occurs through SSAT-induced polyamine oxidation by NF-kB pathway activation. These results provide a novel mechanism of neurotoxicity in stroke patients, aid in the development of neutralizing or preventive measures, and further our understanding of neural protection.

Effects of dietary 5-methoxyindole-2-carboxylic acid on brain functional recovery after ischemic stroke.
Abstract Stroke leads to devastating outcomes including impairments of sensorimotor and cognitive function that may be long lasting. New intervention strategies are needed to overcome the long-lasting effects of ischemic injury. Previous studies determined that treatment with 5-methoxyindole-2-carboxylic acid (MICA) conferred chemical preconditioning and neuroprotection against stroke. The purpose of the current study was to determine whether the preconditioning can lead to functional improvements after stroke (done by transient middle cerebral artery occlusion). After 4 weeks of MICA feeding, half the rats underw...
