EEG Parameter During Motor Imagery for Assessing the Functional State of Stroke Patients
Stroke is one of the most prevalent pathologies around the world, with severe effects to the motor and sensory system that hinder the daily living activities. The current physical therapy techniques have evident limitations and, in some cases, have an innocuous effect for non-cooperative or strongly impaired patients who only can receive passive movement treatments. New rehabilitation technologies are emergingto brake the current limitations, like Brain Computer Interface (BCI).

Upper Extremity Rehabilitation for Stroke Patients Using Fully Immersive Virtual Reality Game :a Preliminary Study
Virtual reality is classified as non-immersive, semi-immersive, and fully-immersive depending on the degree of immersion. Among these, the fully-immersive type is a system that allows the user to immerse himself or herself in a live environment using a head mounted display (HMD) and a variety of sensors capable of recognizing the motion of the user. We developed a fully-immersive rehabilitation program using a HMD, and report a preliminary study of applying it to patients with upper extremity dysfunction due to stroke.

A Clinical Validation Study of Anatomical Risk Scoring for Procedural Stroke in Patients Treated by Carotid Artery Stenting in the International Carotid Stenting Study
Vascular anatomy of the aortic arch and supra-aortic arteries has been suggested as influencing the risk of carotid artery stenting (CAS). The expert opinion based Delphi anatomical risk (DAR) score was developed to predict difficulty of CAS in relation to procedural stroke risk, and thereby aid patient selection. The aim was to validate the DAR score in the context of a randomised clinical trial.

Association Between Endothelial Cell Stabilizing Medication and Small Vessel Disease Stroke: A Case-Control Study
Increasing evidence suggests a role for endothelial cell (EC) dysfunction in pathogenesis of cerebral small vessel disease. Commonly used medications including certain antihypertensives and statins have EC-stabilizing effects. We used individual patient data from completed acute stroke trials to assess whether prior exposure to EC-stabilizing medications was associated with lacunar stroke, using lacunar stroke as a clinical proxy for cerebral small vessel disease. Across 12,002 patients with relevant data, 2,855 (24%) had a lacunar stroke presentation. Univariable analyses suggested potential confounding from vascular dise...

A Clinical Validation Study of Anatomical Risk Scoring for Procedural Stroke in Patients Treated by Carotid Artery Stenting in the International Carotid Stenting Study.
CONCLUSIONS: No statistically significant association was found between anatomical difficulty, as defined in the DAR score, and procedural stroke risk. However, the small sample size potentially rendered the study underpowered to detect group differences, and confirmation with a larger sample is essential.

Transcriptome Sequencing Unravels Potential Biomarkers at Different Stages of Cerebral Ischemic Stroke
This study assessed the characteristics of transcriptome changes at different stages of ischemic stroke using a mouse model of transient middle cerebral artery occlusion (tMCAO) and bioinformatics analyses. Cerebral cortex tissues from tMCAO mice at days 1, 3, 7, 14, and 28 were removed for RNA-Seq and small RNA-Seq library construction, sequencing, and bioinformatics analysis. We identified differentially expressed (DE) genes and miRNAs and revealed an association of the up-regulated or down-regulated DEmiRNAs with the correspondingly altered DEgene targets at each time point. In addition, different biological pathways we...

Urokinase Plasminogen Activator: A Potential Thrombolytic Agent for Ischaemic Stroke.
Abstract Stroke continues to be one of the leading causes of mortality and morbidity worldwide. Restoration of cerebral blood flow by recombinant plasminogen activator (rtPA) with or without mechanical thrombectomy is considered the most effective therapy for rescuing brain tissue from ischaemic damage, but this requires advanced facilities and highly skilled professionals, entailing high costs, thus in resource-limited contexts urokinase plasminogen activator (uPA) is commonly used as an alternative. This literature review summarises the existing studies relating to the potential clinical application of uPA in is...

Stroke after type A aortic dissection repair: Can we do better?
We thank Hawkins and colleagues1 for their commentary “Stroke After Type A Aortic Dissection Repair - A Web of Risk With No Single Answer” regarding our recently published article,2 in which we sought to examine the incidence and factors associated with acute stroke after type A repair. Undoubtedly, stroke is a common and deadly complication after type A repair, and yet limited effort has been done to prevent this morbid complication. It is worth mentioning that Hawkins and colleagues3 have shown that the rate of stroke after type A repair has not changed in the last 2 decades (>10% since 2003).

Oral Contraceptive Use and Increased Risk of Stroke: A Dose –Response Meta-Analysis of Observational Studies
Conclusions: The higher estrogen dosage significantly increased the risks of total stroke, IS, and HS, respectively. The longer duration of OCP use significantly increased the risks of total stroke and IS, but its effects on HS risk were marginal. The longer duration of OCP cessation significantly decreased the risks of total stroke, IS, and HS, respectively. These findings affirm the contribution of estrogen dose and duration of OCP use to the increased risk of stroke, which may be critical for the instruction of OCP use and the prevention and management of cerebrovascular diseases.

Bilateral vertebral artery occlusion without stroke secondary to giant cell arteritis.
We report a case of an 84-year-old male patient with anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy secondary to giant cell arteritis, with bilateral occlusion of the vertebral arteries manifested with nonspecific neurological signs, detected during the ultrasound scan of the cervical arteries. The rarity of this case lies in the reasonably good outcome at the three-month and six-month follow-up and the absence of temporal artery involvement, despite the severe vertebral artery affection with bilateral occlusion.

Predictors of Stroke after Minimally Invasive Mitral Valve Surgery Without the Cross-Clamp
Minimally invasive mitral valve surgery (mini-MVS) with hypothermic fibrillatory arrest has been associated with an increased risk of stroke. We aim to investigate the incidence, predictors, and outcomes of stroke in a large cohort of patient who underwent clampless mini-MVS. Between January 2008 and June 2017, we performed 1,247 mini-MVSs. The clinical, operative, and postoperative outcomes were analyzed. Univariable and multivariable regression analyses were used to identify predictors of postoperative stroke.
