The ideal cardiovascular health (CVH) has been reported to be associated with reduced risk of ischemic stroke (IS). Atherosclerosis is a fundamental precursor in progression to IS. This study aimed to investigate the association of CVH score and atherosclerosis defined by carotid plaque in a community-based cohort.… Read More...

Ischemic stroke (IS) is an extremely heterogeneous disease with variable pathogenesis. Due to the lack of early diagnostic markers, the mortality rate of IS remains high. Cumulative evidence shows that long noncoding RNAs among noncoding RNAs play important roles in cardiovascular diseases.… Read More...

Small studies have suggested that Marfan syndrome is associated with a number of cerebrovascular complications. We sought to determine whether a clinical diagnosis of Marfan syndrome is associated with a higher prevalence of cerebrovascular diseases than the general population by performing a case-control study of hospitalized patients in the Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS).… Read More...

Long-term cardiac monitoring with implantable loop recorders (ILRs) has revealed occult paroxysmal atrial fibrillation and flutter (PAF) in a substantial minority of cryptogenic ischemic stroke (CIS) patients. Herein, we aim to define the prevalence, clinical relevance, and risk factors for PAF detection following early poststroke ILR implantation.… Read More...

Cerebral hyperperfusion syndrome (CHS), known as the dark side of carotid recanalization, happens in about 0%-3% of patients. Unfortunately, physicians involving in carotid recanalization generally are not aware of diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of this unusual but potentially life-threatening disorder. Severe bilateral carotid stenosis is suggested to predispose patients to CHS by decrement of cerebrovascular reactivity in a setting of chronic hypoperfusion state.… Read More...

The clinical impacts of serum alkaline phosphatase (ALP) and phosphate on early death are not fully understood in patients with acute ischemic stroke. We examined the associations between serum ALP, phosphate, and in-hospital mortality after ischemic stroke.

Cerebral microbleeds (CMBs) are refined neuroimaging findings detected on T2*-weighted gradient echo (GRE) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and are widely accepted as an important marker of the vulnerability of cerebral small vessels. It is necessary to further clarify the natural history of CMBs by a longitudinal study.… Read More...
