We read the study conducted by Huangfu et al that was published in the Journal of Stroke & Cerebrovascular Diseases enthusiastically and meticulously.1 The authors tried to examine the combined effect of smoking and hypertension on ischemic stroke incidence over a 10-year follow-up among Inner Mongolians in China.… Read More...

In the Stenting and Aggressive Medical Management for Preventing Recurrent Stroke in Intracranial Stenosis (SAMMPRIS) trial, 19.1% of ischemic strokes occurred out of the territory of previously symptomatic stenosis during the mean follow-up period of 23.4 months. However, it is unknown how many ischemic strokes were due to a previously asymptomatic intracranial atherosclerotic stenosis (ICAS).… Read More...

Hydroxyurea (HU) was recently described as a substitute for chronic transfusion for children with sickle cell disease (SCD) and abnormal transcranial Doppler (TCD) velocities who have received at least 1 year of transfusions. However, the role of HU in reverting elevated TCD velocities in patients not treated with transfusion is still debatable.… Read More...

Pulmonary embolism (PE) is associated with a risk of consecutive paradoxical embolism with brain infarction through a patent foramen ovale (PFO). The aims of this study were to assess the rate of new ischemic brain lesions (IBLs) using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) during a 12-month follow-up period with anticoagulation and to evaluate the potential relationship with the presence of PFO on transesophageal echocardiography (TEE).… Read More...

Poststroke infection (PSI) is common and is usually associated with a severe prognosis. We investigated the association between PSI and thyroid hormones, which are critical to immune regulation, in patients with acute stroke.
