We report a patient with an important scenario that may arise in the management of an acute ischemic stroke: the need for a repeated mechanical thrombectomy in the same intracranial artery segment. The patient had a history of atrial fibrillation and a mechanical mitral valve replacement.… Read More...

Penumbra salvage from infarction by early reperfusion within the time window is the target of acute ischemic stroke therapies. Although the penumbral imaging is potently usable in clinic trial, additional work needs to be performed to advancing the field with better-defined, evaluated, and validated imaging measures.… Read More...

Several studies have studied the relationship between lipoprotein lipase (LPL) HindIII gene polymorphism and stroke susceptibility. However, the conclusions remain controversial. To clarify the association of LPL gene HindIII polymorphism and stroke susceptibility, we therefore conducted a comprehensive meta-analysis.

Silent brain infarct (SBI) is associated with symptomatic stroke, but the association between SBI and acute ischemic stroke severity is uncertain. We aimed at investigating the association between SBI number and stroke severity in patients with first-ever ischemic stroke without advanced leukoaraiosis.… Read More...

In clinical trials, intravenous (IV) recombinant tissue-type plasminogen activator (rt-PA) reduces the likelihood of disability if given within 3 hours of acute ischemic stroke. This study compared real-world outcomes between patients treated and patients not treated with IV rt-PA.

Most of the time, watershed infarcts (WIs) involve steno-occlusive carotid disease. The pathophysiological mechanism could be predicted by their pattern: internal WIs (IWIs) are thought to be due to hemodynamic impairment in contrast to cortical WIs (CWIs), which are more likely to be caused by microembolic phenomena.… Read More...
