Background and Purpose: Patients with ischemic stroke of cardioembolic origin are at risk of visceral (renal or splenic) infarction. We hypothesized that serum troponin level at time of ischemic stroke would be associated with presence of visceral infarction. Methods: Data were abstracted from a single center prospective stroke database over 18 months and included all patients with ischemic stroke who underwent contrast-enhanced computerized tomography (CT) of the abdomen and pelvis for clinical purposes within 1 year of stroke.… Read More...

Background: Recent studies have suggested that patients with chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) may have a higher risk of stroke although the data are still limited. The current systematic review and meta-analysis was conducted with the aims to identify all studies that investigated this relationship and summarize their results together to better characterize the risk of stroke among patients with CRS.… Read More...

Background: Stroke is a common neurological complication of infective endocarditis (IE) and it is associated with increased morbidity and mortality but infective endocarditis in acute stroke setting is hard to discover. Material and methods: A 75-year-old man referred to hospital for the onset of left hemiparesis and dysarthria.… Read More...

Background: The effect of serum rheumatoid factor (RF) on poststroke cognitive impairment remains unknown. We aimed to investigate the association of serum RF in the acute phase with cognitive impairment at 3 months after ischemic stroke onset. Methods: Our study was based on a random sample from the China Antihypertensive Trial in Acute Ischemic Stroke, a total of 582 patients from 7 of 26 participating sites of the trial with serum RF levels were included in this analysis.… Read More...

Objectives: In this research we wanted to highlight the importance of defining Borderzone infarctions (BZI) as a separate subtype in stroke classifications. We thus studied cases of isolated BZI, small vessel disease (SVD), and large vessel disease (LVD), to identify their points of similarities and difference in a sample of Egyptian patients.… Read More...

Aim: To investigate association of Apolipoprotein E (ApoE) gene promoter methylation with atherosclerotic cerebral infarction (ACI) in the Han Chinese population. Methods: Twenty-six ACI patients (the case group) and 26 healthy (the control group) were recruited randomly from Henan Han nationality population, from April 2016 to August 2016.… Read More...

Objective: The efficacy of thyrotropin-releasing hormone tartrate (TRH-T) for treating prolonged disturbance of consciousness due to aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) remains unclear. The purpose of the present study was to determine whether TRH-T was really effective, and what was the recovery factor when it was valid.… Read More...

Background: Cerebral stroke, with ischemic stroke being its most common type, is the leading cause of chronic disability. The ketogenic diet has been used for treating seizures for centuries and has been considered to be a treatment for other neurologic diseases in recent years.… Read More...

Objective: Our objective was to review 15 consecutive patients with anterior circulation aneurysms managed through a contralateral approach. Individualized surgical simulation using three-dimensional (3D) imaging was adopted to enable safe performance of clipping surgery. Methods: Five patients had multiple intracranial aneurysms, and 10 patients had a single aneurysm on the contralateral side of the craniotomy.… Read More...

Background: Elevated circulating osteoprotegerin (OPG) level is associated with an increased risk of hospitalization for ischemic stroke and coronary artery disease. The aim of the present study was to analyze whether OPG assessment may improve the prediction of mortality in patients with stroke.… Read More...
