Background: Coated-platelets are a subset of highly procoagulant platelets observed after dual agonist stimulation with collagen and thrombin. Coated-platelet levels are increased in acute stroke compared to controls, and higher levels are associated with stroke recurrence. We examined whether coated-platelet levels measured at the time of the stroke correlate with cognitive scores at 3 months following the brain infarction.… Read More...

In-stent restenosis (ISR) is unfavorable to the long-term efficacy of carotid angioplasty and stenting (CAS). Inflammation plays a critical role in the development of ISR. The aim of the study was to investigate whether neutrophil to albumin ratio (NAR) is a predictor of ISR in patients undergoing CAS.… Read More...

Background: To determine the clinical outcomes of perimesencephalic subarachnoid hemorrhages based on the computed tomography (CT) bleeding patterns. Methods: This retrospective cohort study included: (1) patients (≥18 years) admitted to a comprehensive stroke center (January 2015-May 2018), (2) with angiography-negative, nontraumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage in a perimesencephalic or diffuse bleeding pattern, and (3) had CT imaging performed in less than rqual to 72 hours of symptom onset.… Read More...

Background: UCHealth’s Mobile Stroke Unit (MSU) at University of Colorado Hospital is an ambulance equipped with a computed tomography (CT) scanner and tele-stroke capabilities that began clinical operation in Aurora, Colorado January 2016. As one of the first MSU’s in the United States, it was necessary to design unique and dynamic information technology infrastructure.… Read More...

In recent years, interest in the quality of medical care has rapidly increased worldwide. However, quality indicators that contribute to establishing standard treatment in stroke medicine, especially rehabilitation, are not well-developed in Japan. Japan has established Kaifukuki (convalescent) rehabilitation wards, and the development of quality indicators for stroke rehabilitation in the convalescent phase is an urgent issue.… Read More...

Background: Intracranial arteriosclerotic disease (ICAD) is common in Asians and has been presumed to be largely associated with metabolic syndrome (MetS), but the risks for asymptomatic ICAD detectable in examinations of the brain, among other tests, are not well known. The present study is aimed at identifying the risks for asymptomatic ICAD using data on risk factors obtained in health checkups, including data from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), chest computed tomography (CT), and neck echography.… Read More...

Background: The purpose of this study was to validate and pilot the use of the four-variable screening tool (4V) and modified 4V tools to identify acute ischemic stroke and transient ischemic attack (TIA) patients at high risk of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).… Read More...
