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...

Prediabetes has been associated with unfavorable short-term outcome in patients with ischemic stroke (IS). However, its effect in the subset of young adult patients has not been fully assessed. Our aim was to study the association between prediabetes and 3-month outcome in young adult patients with IS.… Read More...

Genes associated with the inflammatory response and cytostructural integrity may influence recovery following a brain injury. To examine this in the setting of spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH), selected single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) were assessed for associations with patient outcome.

We have read with great interest the article entitled “Analysis of the Usefulness of the WORSEN Score for Predicting the Deterioration of Acute Ischemic Stroke” by Miyamoto et al published in the Journal of Stroke and Cerebrovascular Diseases.1 The authors aimed to develop WORSEN score for risk prediction of the neurologic deterioration of ischemic stroke.… Read More...

Impaired cerebrovascular reactivity (CVR) is an important prognostic marker of stroke. Most measures of CVR lack (1) a reproducible vasoactive stimulus and (2) a high time and spatial resolution measure of cerebral blood flow (CBF), particularly for mechanically ventilated patients. The aim of our study was to investigate the feasibility of measuring CVR using sequential gas delivery circuit and gas blender for precise targeting of end-tidal PCO2 (PetCO2), and blood oxygen level-dependent magnetic resonance imaging (BOLD-MRI) signal as a surrogate of CBF, in mechanically ventilated patients.… Read More...
