The clinical distinction between habitual facial asymmetry, early stage peripheral facial palsy, and isolated central facial palsy is sometimes difficult. The diagnosis of acute central facial palsy is of importance to identify patients for stroke work-up and appropriate treatment. We aimed to evaluate the prevalence and localization of acute ischemic lesions associated with isolated central facial palsy.… Read More...

Mechanical thrombectomy (MT) in association with intravenous thrombolysis is recommended for treatment of acute ischemic stroke (AIS), with large vessel occlusion (LVO) in the anterior circulation. Because MT is only available in comprehensive stroke centers (CSC), the challenge of stroke organization is to ensure equitable access to the fastest endovascular suite.… Read More...

Correct diagnosis of cerebral stroke type, hemorrhagic or ischemic, is essential in the early stage to establish the optimum treatment. The diagnosis is mainly determined based on imaging studies. Other more available diagnostic methods are desirable, such as blood sample examination.… Read More...

Background: Neuroinflammation is an important part of stroke pathophysiology and has both detrimental and beneficial effects after stroke. Besides that the enhancement of neurotrophins seems to be related to improvements in stroke recovery. Evidences suggest that exercise plays a role in modulating anti-inflammatory and neurotrophic effects.… Read More...

We report 3 cases (69-year-old man, 71-year-old man, and 82-year-old woman) of isolated cerebellar nodulus stroke patients, who presented with positional vertigo alone that lasted only for 2-4 days. Brain magnetic resonance imaging helped diagnosing these cases. Although rare, clinicians should be aware of isolated cerebellar nodulus stroke, when facing with patients with paroxysmal vertigo of acute onset.… Read More...

Background: The ancient Greek term “apoplexy” as is repeatedly mentioned by the Hippocratic School of Medicine, included a cluster of diseases, mainly those concerning the central nervous system. The term was wrongfully infiltrated in Western European medicine as synonymous to what is called today a “stroke” of the brain.… Read More...

Poststroke gait disorders negatively impact activities of daily living. Rehabilitation for stroke patients is aimed at improving their walking ability, balance, and quality of life. Robot-assisted gait training (RAGT) is associated with an increased number of task-specific exercises, which may benefit poststroke motor learning.… Read More...
