Background: Diffusion-tensor fractional anisotropy (FA) is an index of neural-fiber damage in patients following stroke. To better characterize FA, tract-based spatial statistics (TBSS) is frequently used, which involves spatial transformation into the standard brain space. Despite its utility, this technique is susceptible to space-occupying hematoma in patients with intracerebral hemorrhage.… Read More...

Traumatic cerebral aneurysms are histologically dissecting aneurysms or pseudoaneurysms, thus requiring parent artery occlusion for cure. Combination of endovascular parent artery occlusion and extracranial-intracranial bypass is considered optimal to obtain complete obliteration of the aneurysm and to avoid hemodynamic hypoperfusion. However, endovascular parent artery occlusion of the supraclinoid internal carotid artery (ICA) is at risk of ischemic complications due to distal coil protrusion to adjacent perforating arteries or distal embolism of the thrombi generated in the coil mass.… Read More...

A 64-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital 48 minutes after sudden onset of dysphasia and right hemiplegia. Head computed tomography revealed small infarcts in the left putamen and 4-dimensional computed tomography angiography depicted high-degree stenosis in the left middle cerebral artery and delayed filling of the contrast media in the left middle cerebral artery territory.… Read More...

Background: Acute ischemic stroke patients in Lao People’s Democratic Republic (Lao PDR) are unable to access the intravenous thrombolytic therapy using recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rtPA) due to various reasons. Aims: This study aimed to evaluate the feasibility and safety of thrombolytic therapy administration at Mittaphab Hospital, Lao PDR under the international telestroke consultation system from King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital, Thailand.… Read More...

Objective

To examine the annual healthcare expenditures associated with childhood headache in the United States, and to evaluate whether psychiatric comorbidities increase the impact of headache on expenditures.

Background

Headache is prevalent in childhood and co‐occurs with anxiety disorders, depressive disorders, and attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), which may increase cost of illness.… Read More...

Background: Falls, mobility impairments and lack of social support lead to participation restrictions in people with neurological conditions. The aim of this multicenter, single blinded randomized controlled trial was to test whether an educational program focusing on fall prevention and safe mobility reduces falls and increases social participation among people with neurological conditions.… Read More...

Abstract

Background

Whether reserve plays a role in Parkinson’s disease (PD) patients has received less attention than in dementia and has been mainly examined in relation with cognitive function.

Objective

To investigate whether reserve plays a role in the severity and progression of motor, cognitive, and nonmotor PD symptoms by examining whether education level (proxy of reserve) is associated with baseline performance and rate of progression.… Read More...
