Cerebral dopamine neurotrophic factor plays a critical role in repairing and maintaining healthy neurons in pathological conditions such as stroke. However, the association between cerebral dopamine neurotrophic factor expression and stroke has only recently been investigated in preclinical models and is rarely described in human studies.… Read More...

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has a young but ageing population, leading to concerns for planning for future growth in the number of strokes to provide necessary care. An understanding of the expected evolution of stroke incidence is therefore necessary to plan infrastructure changes.… Read More...

Tenascin-C (TNC) is upregulated in serum and cerebrospinal fluid after subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) and the deficiency of TNC could alleviate neuronal apoptosis and neuroinflammation after SAH. However, the specific mechanism of TNC regulating neuronal apoptosis and neuroinflammation after SAH is not well recognized.… Read More...

Predicting outcome after stroke is a major goal and research field. The Embolic Stroke of Undetermined Source (ESUS) is a recently introduced clinical construct, and the prediction of outcome in this population has to be further explored. The aim of the study was to evaluate the prognostic validity and accuracy of the Acute Stroke Registry and Analysis of Lausanne (ASTRAL) score in patients with ESUS.… Read More...

Impairment of endothelial function is associated with atherosclerosis and atrial fibrillation, and could underlie several types of ischemic stroke. Embolic stroke of undetermined source (ESUS) recently attracted much attention as the major cause of cryptogenic stroke. This study aimed to clarify the endothelial function of patients with ESUS.… Read More...

Vision, Aphasia, Neglect (VAN) is a large vessel occlusion (LVO) screening tool that was initially tested in a small study where emergency department (ED) nurses were trained to perform VAN assessment on stroke code patients. We aimed to validate the VAN assessment in a larger inpatient dataset.… Read More...

Medullary compression syndrome due to anomalous course of blood vessels is a rare disease most commonly seen in the adult population. The offending vessels causing this syndrome are mostly posterior inferior cerebellar artery or the vertebral artery. The symptoms of this syndrome vary from most common hypertension to various other neurologic deficits like hemiplegia, dysesthesia, and dysarthria.… Read More...

Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a treatment used in the rehabilitation of stroke patients aiming to improve functionality of the plegic upper extremity. Currently, tDCS is not routinely used in post stroke rehabilitation. The aim of this study was to establish the effects of bihemspheric tDCS combined with physical therapy (PT) and occupational therapy (OT) on upper extremity motor function.… Read More...

Emergency departments play a key role in the diagnosis and treatment of transient ischemic attacks, but limited data are available about the early management of such patients in emergency wards. Therefore, we aimed to evaluate emergency physicians’ management of transient ischemic attack and analyze variations factors.… Read More...

Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is one of the leading causes of disability and mortality in adult, which lacks effective therapies. Edaravone has showed its neuroprotective effects after ischemia stroke, but its effects and possible mechanisms after ICH are poorly understood. Here, we investigated whether edaravone confers neuroprotection after ICH in rats and explored the potential mechanisms involved.… Read More...
