We were interested to read the article by Kong et al that was published in the Journal of Stroke and Cerebrovascular Diseases in June 2017.1 The authors aimed to assess the validity of the serial Alberta Stroke Program Early CT Score (ASPECTS) in predicting unfavorable outcomes in thrombolyzed stroke patients.… Read More...

A 73-year-old man was admitted with sudden right upper-limb weakness. He had a temporal headache on the left side and had a 4-month history of fever. Meandering of the left temporal artery (TA) with induration and high inflammatory responses (white blood cell count 22,500 per microliter, C-reactive protein 35.0 mg/dL, and elevated sedimentation rate [ESR] 80 mm/h) were observed.… Read More...

The development of cerebral infarction after transient ischemia is attributed to postischemic delayed hypoperfusion in the microvascular region. In the present study, we assessed the microvascular perfusion capacity of infused liposome-encapsulated hemoglobin (LEH) in a therapeutic approach for transient middle cerebral artery occlusion (tMCAO).… Read More...

Low-molecular weight heparin (LMWH) was shown to be effective and safe in treating venous thromboembolism, and generally used for stroke in cancer patients, but its effects on stroke are unclear. We compared clinical outcomes between LMWH and new oral anticoagulant (NOAC) in patients with cancer-related stroke.… Read More...

Lymphocyte-to-monocyte ratio (LMR) is associated with diverse malignancies and cardiovascular diseases. However, it has not yet been identified whether LMR is correlated with stroke severity and prognosis. We aimed to explore the relationship between LMR and stroke severity, prognosis, and the predictive value of LMR on a 3-month functional outcome in patients with acute ischemic stroke (AIS).… Read More...

Basilar artery (BA) dolichoectasia has been associated with cerebral small vessel disease (SVD). However, studies have focused on stroke patients, and results cannot be extrapolated to the population at large. In this study, we aimed to assess prevalence of BA dolichoectasia and its association with SVD in community-dwelling older adults living in rural Ecuador.… Read More...
