Stroke leads to devastating impact on health as well as quality of life making it one of the leading causes of disability. Restoring the functions of upper extremities after ischemic (ISC) stroke is one of the challenges for rehabilitation. Lack of trained professionals and accessibility to rehabilitation centers are limited in many counties.… Read More...

Cardiac biomarkers may help identify stroke mechanisms and may aid in improving stroke prevention strategies. There is limited data on the association between these biomarkers and acute ischemic stroke (AIS) caused by large vessel occlusion (LVO). We hypothesized that cardiac biomarkers (cardiac troponin and left atrial diameter [LAD]) would be associated with the presence of LVO.… Read More...

Recently, the NIHSS STroke Scale score, Age, pre-stroke mRS score, onset-to-treatment Time (START nomogram) predicts 3-month functional outcome after intravenous thrombolysis in ischemic stroke patients. However, this model has not yet been an external validation. We aim to validate the performance of START nomogram.… Read More...

We thank Dr. Ajay Kumar Mishra et al. for their postpublication commentaries highlighting the pathology of cryptococcal meningitis vasculopathy. The lack of neuroimaging in some of our patients reflects unavailable information on retrospectively collected data rather than an informed clinical decision.… Read More...

Background: Data on the clinical and radiological characteristics of intracranial artery dissection (IAD) have remained limited. Our purpose was to reveal the clinical and radiological characteristics of IAD according to diagnostic criteria for IAD as recently reported by a group of international experts.… Read More...

A 48-year-old woman spontaneously developed occipital pain, without any other neurological deficit. A brain magnetic resonance angiography showed narrowing, irregular dilatation, and aneurysmal formation in both the vertebral arteries (VA). According to these findings and the clinical course, we diagnosed the patient with spontaneous VA dissection.… Read More...
